Jared Leto, who just won a Golden Globe for his role as a transvestite in “Dallas Buyers Club”, stripped down for a photoshoot with photographer Terry Richardson.
The 42-year-old 30 Seconds to Mars singer and actor is shown nude and in the shower. Yay!
In the series of photos, the actor goes from pumping iron shirtless to barely covered with a white towel.
The photos were released just as Jared took home a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor on Sunday. Coincidence? We think not!
During his acceptance speech, the former “My So Called Life” star revealed how much effort went into perfecting the role in “Dallas Buyers Club”.
The actor, who lost 30 pounds for the part, said, “I’d like this opportunity to clear up a few things. I did not ever use any prosthetics in this film. That tiny little Brazilian bubble butt was all mine.”
He adds, “It was a very transformative role, I had to do a lot of things to prepare. One of the things I did was wax my entire body including my eyebrows. I’m just fortunate that it wasn’t a period piece so I didn’t have to do a full Brazilian [wax]. Ladies, you know what I’m talking about though…and so do some of you men, I think.”
Jared Leto ended his speech on a serious note, saying, “This is incredible. I didn’t make a film for almost six years because I was pursuing other dreams and I just have to say it’s more than an honor to come back and have this love and support and I never expected it and never even dreamed of it. I want to thank my team for making this so fun and giving me this incredible life, and to the Rayons of the world, thanks for the inspiration.”
