Oscar winner Jared Leto has got the looks, the charm, the brains and the talent. During his long, fruitful career (he got his start in the cult classic My So Called Life), he’s expanded his resumé beyond acting. He’s also a singer, songwriter, producer, activist and anything you can probably think of. With his infinite amount of talent, there’s no one better to be this week’s Man Crush Monday.
If you still need some convincing, maybe this will sway your mood.
Jared Leto has the voice of a god and it’s on proud display whenever his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, plays.
He started the band back in 1998 with his old brother Shannon Leto. Even after 10 years of writing hit singles, Jared has not lost his touch. Both original songs and covers sound so unique and different that you know they’ve been touched by Leto.
Just check out this amazing cover of Kanye West’s “Stronger”:
The boy who went to Los Angeles hoping to become musician started to do a little acting on the side. Thank the heavens above he did because we got to see some of the finest acting. He takes on roles that are different and that challenge him. It not only make him a stronger actor but a better human.
He starred in such critically acclaimed movies including Requiem for a Dream and Fight Club. His role in his last movie, The Dallas Buyers Club, as a trans woman helped him nab the Best Support Actor Oscar at the 2014 Academy Awards.
Jared is so close with his mom and brother. He brings his mom to almost every award show and his brother is part of Jared’s band 30 Seconds to Mars.
After he won his Oscars, he said a special thanks to his mom and brother:
This is no ordinary fan base. We all believe in equality, and unity and we have 30 Seconds to Mars’ Jared, Shannon and Tomo to thank for that.
This fan base is so dedicated that they even get lyrics, faces and the triad tattooed on them. (Yes, I’m one of those fans who got it inked. No shame.)
It’s one thing to have an image in your head, but it’s another to be able to put it into a motion, whether it be for a movie or a music video. According to Jared, Bartholomew is a Danish director who’s very creative and an albino (his words, not mine). But the Echelon know that Jared is the man behind Cubbins who comes up with all the creative videos, like Thirty Seconds To Mars’ “The Kill.” (Nice try, Jared. Ya can’t fool us!)
His Luscious Locks
Aside from the fact that Jared Leto looks like identical image of Jesus Christ, can we just look at his hair for a good minute?
And to anyone who think he needs to cut his hair, Jared has this to say:
And if you still don’t love Jared as much as I do:
[Ed. Note: It really is.He has the most beautiful ombré I’ve ever seen on a person. Don’t even get me started on the man bun…]
30 Seconds to Mars will be hitting the road this summer with Linkin Park!
