Jared Leto is fasting for Dallas Buyer’s Club, the same movie he shaved his eyebrows and dressed in drag for. He plays a transsexual with AIDS in 1980s Texas. You know, Oscar baity stuff. He told Vulture at the Gotham Awards that his main focus has been mostly on his character’s grooming techniques like body waxing. This is true for most of his roles, I believe.
You can see the results of Jared’s hard work in these photos from Terry Richardson who made him look as weird and androgynous as possible. Also, that picture up top is reminiscent of that one scene from Scary Movie. The “do this make me look gay” scene.
