Jared Leto interview

The 30 Seconds To Mars frontman Jared Leto has confessed that as a child he was more concerned with being outdoors and hanging out with ‘hippies’ in the forest than thinking about fame, acting or awards ceremonies.

The star recently won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, which was for his role as Rayon in ‘Dallas Buyers Club’, and told The Guardian that his upbringing was incredibly different from the life he has now:

“As a kid I was surrounded by hippies in a tepee in a commune in the forest. We certainly weren’t thinking of awards shows! I was more interested in art … I’m an art school dropout. But really, I just wanted to be a creative person who could make things.”

He added that his return to film was because a script appeared that he was very passionate about and knew he had to be involved in:

“I was busy and fulfilled with Thirty Seconds to Mars. I wasn’t looking to make a film. I hadn’t made one in years and I was beginning to think maybe I’d never make another one. But they were persistent and I thought the character was astounding.”
