#Fact
1Leto attempted to invest in Instagram prior to the company's acquisition by Facebook. He met with the company four days before the acquisition, but was unsuccessful in making a deal. He also unsuccessfully tried to invest in Oculus and feels he missed out because he didn't get involved fast enough.
2With the help of NASA, Thirty Seconds to Mars sent a copy of the debut single from their album, Love Lust Faith + Dreams, into space in 2013. The single, "Up In the Air" was played inside of the International Space Station.
3Leto was loaned artwork from conceptual British artist, Damien Hirst, to appear in the music video for "Up In the Air." Hirst's art eventually became the album cover art for the Thirty Seconds to Mars album, Love Lust Faith + Dreams.
4The music video shot for the Thirty Seconds to Mars single, "Up In the Air," was shot over 4 days in Long Beach, CA. The video was produced and directed by Leto under is pseudonym, Bartholomew Cubbins. The video went on to win Best Rock Video at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
5Leto started working on the Thirty Seconds to Mars documentary, Artifact (2012), in 2008. The film wasn't released until it premiered at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival.
6Leto's band, Thirty Seconds to Mars, is managed by the high-profile industry manager, Irving Azoff. Along with Thirty Seconds to Mars, Azoff has managed artists such as The Eagles, Christina Aguilera, Van Halen, Maroon 5, Bon Jovi, and No Doubt. Leto also featured Azoff in the 2012 music documentary, Artifact (2012).
7Even though Leto's band, Thirty Seconds to Mars, was in support of their album "Love Lust Faith + Dreams" in the wake of Dallas Buyers Club (2013), his band mates (Shannon Leto and Tomo Milicevic ) never saw him in character as Rayon. Leto's explanation was that he thinks they would have felt uncomfortable because he was in character all the time. He did receive visits from his mother, Constance, while he was in character.
8Leto's tattoos have all been given by legendary tattoo artist, Mark Mahoney. Mahoney also has tattooed Leto's brother, Shannon Leto and mostly tattooed the brothers inside their own homes, not in a tattoo shop.
9Leto was revealed as the face of the Gucci Guilty fragrance campaign in September 2016.
10He has said he wouldn't consider a solo music career unless he felt that he wanted to release material that wasn't fitting or appropriate for his band, Thirty Seconds to Mars.
11In order to gain the 62lbs required for his role in Chapter 27 (2007), Leto would eat massive amounts of pizza, pasta, and microwaved pints of chocolate Haagen-Dazs ice cream mixed with olive oil and soy sauce. He lost the weight over a 7-week period, including not eating at all for the first 10 days after filming wrapped.
12Leto traveled to India to begin writing new music after Thirty Seconds to Mars wrapped up their 2-year tour in support of their third studio album, "This Is War.".
13Stated in an interview that his role as The Joker in Suicide Squad (2016) was the "role of a lifetime".
14Chosen as one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People. [1995].
15Leto developed a severe case of a bronchial Staph infection (Staphylococcus Aureus) in 2011 while on tour with his band, 30 Seconds to Mars. The infection caused him to cough and have difficulty breathing for an entire year. Despite his illness, the band refused to cancel any show.
16The music video for "This is War" by 30 Seconds to Mars is the only one of the band's music videos since 2006 that Leto did not direct. He directs and produces the band's music videos under the pseudonym, Bartholomew Cubbins.
17Leto's band, 30 Seconds to Mars, won the MTV Video Music Awards statue for Best Rock Video in 2010 for "Kings and Queens." The band won a second VMA statue in 2013 in the same category for "Up in the Air.".
18Leto is a natural brunette, but he has sported several different hairstyles and hair colors throughout his career. These include a bright pink mohawk with bleached sides, dyed blue hair, bleached blonde hair, long dyed black hair, and dyed green hair for his role in Suicide Squad (2016).
19He returned to Haiti in January 2011 in the wake of the 2010 earthquake to provide aid and assistance to those affected by the natural disaster. Leto previously lived in Haiti as a child, but the 2011 trip marked the first time he had been back in over 20 years.
20Leto and his 30 Seconds to Mars band mates promote theme nights when they go on tour so their shows are never the same. Previous show themes include pirates, superheroes, zombies, anime, yuppies, neon colors, military, and sports. The members of the band dress up and encourage the audience members to show up in costume and bring props.
21The makeup application for the Joker's tattoos and pale skin in Suicide Squad (2016) required Leto to sit in the makeup chair for 4-5 hours each day.
22Leto gained over 20lbs of muscle as part of his physical transformation into the Joker for Suicide Squad (2016).
23The video for the song "A Beautiful Lie" by his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, was shot on location in Greenland. The band hauled their own equipment on and off of live glaciers to achieve the shoot.
24Leto utilizes a pseudonym when he directs short films and music videos. The Dr. Seuss inspired name, Bartholomew Cubbins, is utilized because he feels that having his real name attached as the director distracts the viewers.
25Leto directed a documentary feature titled Artifact (2012) that surrounded 30 Seconds to Mars' struggle with their record label, Virgin/EMI. It was shot in 2008 as a future promo project for the band's third studio album, but it turned into a full-length feature about the harsh truths of the music business. It was officially released in 2013 and managed to take home the People's Choice Award at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival, as well as the 2013 Gotham Award for Viewers Choice.
26Leto holds two world records. He and his 30 Second to Mars band mates, Shannon Leto and Tomo Milicevic, were inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records in 2011 for holding the longest consecutive concert tour, spanning over 300 shows over a two year period. Leto also has the highest documented score for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on the SEGA Mega Drive.
27Leto was offered a key role in the Clint Eastwood film, Flags of Our Fathers (2006), but he turned it down due to touring commitments he had with his band, 30 Seconds to Mars.
28Leto moved to Haiti when he was just 12 years old because his mother, Constance, was working with a medical charity. After the 2010 earthquake, he traveled back to Haiti to aid and assist the people. He also published a book filled with photos and experiences from his trip and donated all of the profits to Haitian charities.
29His characters are often maimed or disfigured in some way: his character in Fight Club (1999) is beaten beyond recognition, he was killed with an axe in American Psycho (2000), severely burned in Panic Room (2002), had his arm amputated in Requiem for a Dream (2000), and suffers burns to the face in Suicide Squad (2016).
30Leto's film debut was as a young man named Beck in How to Make an American Quilt (1995) alongside Winona Ryder and Ellen Burstyn. He later reunited with Ryder in Girl, Interrupted (1999) and with Burstyn in Requiem for a Dream (2000).
31He only uses two custom designed McSwain electric guitars while performing with 30 Seconds to Mars: a black one named Artemis and a white one named Pythagoras. Both guitars are equipped with a Gryphon that Leto drew himself.
32As of 2016, Leto only has 22 film credits.
33He attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City before transferring to the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
34Leto originally turned down the role of Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club (2013) as he was focusing on his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, and had existing touring commitments. After reading the script, he accepted the role and started making his physical transformation.
35He was crowned the "sexiest vegetarian alive" by PETA in 2014.
36All of Leto's tattoos are related to his band, 30 Seconds to Mars:
  • The Latin phrase "Provehito In Altum" is tattooed across his right collar bone. The phrase serves as the band's motto and roughly translates into 'launch forth into the depth.'
  • The Alchemy triangle symbol for air, also the band's "triad" logo, is tattooed on the exterior of both of his forearms.
  • The red "glyph" symbol is tattooed on the inside of his right wrist.
  • The Orbis Epsilon, a circle divided into two parts with four arrows shooting out, is a favorite shape of the band. Leto revealed the back tattoo after he hit 1 million Twitter followers.
  • The Echelon "X" symbol, that is also part of his band's iconography, is tattooed on the inside of Leto's left forearm.
  • He has large Roman arrows tattooed on the back of both calves.
37Leto created his own live-streaming concert platform called Vyrt. The service gives fans everywhere an up-close and personal access to his band, 30 Seconds to Mars. He has also used Vyrt to promote and stream his personal film projects such as the documentary series Into the Wild and Great Wide Open (2016).
38Leto purchased a 100,000 square foot former Air Force compound in Los Angeles to convert into a living space. It's complete with a swimming pool, gym, control tower, soundstage, screening rooms, and an actual guillotine. It's also the same location that's rumored to have been the location where the government shot the B-roll footage for the moon landing.
39Leto is also a successful tech investor with stakes in over 50 companies such as Airbnb, Nest, Reddit, Uber, Slack, Zenefits, Stripe, and Uber. He was an initial investor in Nest prior to Google's $3.2M acquisition. In addition to his investments, Leto also has 4 of his own startup companies including the online streaming platform, VyRT. He claims that investments could one day be more lucrative than the film and music industries, and credits his entrepreneurial skills to his experiences dealing with the music industry.
40He signed up for a 12-week acting course after he first moved to Los Angeles in the early 90s and barely showed up for it. He never went through any other acting classes or training.
41To prepare for his role as Harry in Requiem for a Dream (2000), he lived on the streets of New York City with heroin junkies. While the real junkies were shooting up heroin, Leto would shoot up water to understand the feeling of how injecting yourself with a substance felt like.
42Jean-Marc Vallée and Leto's co-star, Matthew McConaughey, both claim they never actually met Jared Leto until after filming wrapped on Dallas Buyers Club (2013) because he was always in character.
43Director David Ayer nicknamed Leto's version of the Joker, 'Smiley.'.
44He got the part of Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club (2013) after a Skype call with director Jean-Marc Vallée. Leto took the call dressed as a woman and hit on Vallée for up to 25 minutes.
45To prepare for the role of the Joker in Suicide Squad (2016), Leto watched hours of real crime footage on YouTube until he couldn't watch anymore. His reasoning was to understand how calm and deliberate a criminal can be and he wanted to apply that to the character.
46Leto tore his labrum while performing a stunt for Suicide Squad (2016).
47He sent gifts to fellow Suicide Squad (2016) cast members including bullets, sex toys, a live rat to co-star Margot Robbie, and condoms that had been removed from the packaging.
48As of 2016, Jared has been in two films that were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Motion Picture of the Year: The Thin Red Line (1998) and Dallas Buyers Club (2013).

#Quote
1[on the future of Bartholomew Cubbins] Making these short films has always been an important part of what we do, and there's an expectation now. That along with a new album comes a new song, comes a new Bartholomew Cubbins film. I always picture him off smoking crack in the streets of Amsterdam, you know, just barely able to keep it together. And just a complete prick.
2[on Bartholomew Cubbins] He is this character that was invented so I had a chance to disappear and work anonymously. It's kind of a simple thing and it's continued, really out of a sense of fun. You know, I feel guilty if I think about kicking him out of a job or something. I don't know what that's all about. Because I've done that in other places a lot of people don't know about, where I've put other names and given them credit for positions of importance.
3[on receiving criticism from his peers] People talk shit - that's what they do. There are negative people out there. I can't worry about those people. The 15-year-old kid in me would probably say, 'Fuck you,' but the grown-up just kinda laughs and doesn't pay attention to it. I think it's just part of the game, whether you're the President or the Pope or Björk or Bono, it doesn't matter. If you have a certain amount of success, people throw stones. It's all part of the Tall Poppy Syndrome, but whether you're an athlete or an explorer, if you push and challenge yourself and your dreams, there are always going to be people out there that are gonna wanna talk about other people that are living dreams and challenges. If they think they're doing me a favor they should probably just turn the attention on themselves and think about how they can do a better job for themselves and their life. I fail enough and I beat myself up enough. I don't need anybody else to do it for me.
4[on admiring his mother] You know, we were born very poor and in pretty humble surroundings and my mother always wanted to do something better with her life. She wanted to do something better for her children. She was a dreamer, she was a worker. She still is. So I think the biggest inspiration and the biggest lessons she taught me was to dream and then, to do the work that it takes to make dreams a reality.
5[on not making any money prior to the Virgin/EMI lawsuit] Shannon and I were living together, Tomo was working at a sandwich shop at that time. A lot of people don't know this. They think, oh he was some big rich famous actor. You know, I made art movies for the most part. I never took a payday. I never had a ton of cash. But money besides the point, we finally had success which we were happy to have, regardless of if we ever made any money. But what we found out is, we sold 3.5 million albums and came home to find out not only were we never going to be paid a single penny, but that we were $2.7 million in debt. We started to look into it and were flabbergasted by what we found.
6I started writing Love Lust Faith + Dreams in April 2011 while we were still on tour. I started early because I didn't want to get off the road and have the pressure of having to follow up the previous album. I'm really glad I did that because by the time we were off the road, I had 14 songs and then I went to India. India was the very first post-tour recording experience and it was unforgettable.
7You do not have the right to dictate who likes what you do and you shouldn't. It's like a painting that hangs on the wall at a museum. It doesn't matter if a complete dickhead walks up and is moved by it, or the sweetest grandma in the world. I'm sure we have both of those. In fact, I know we do at our shows. In fact, our audience surprises us. Especially how it's changed over the years and how it's grown up.
8[on debuting the song "Up In the Air" in space] I thought wouldn't it be incredible... wouldn't it be impossible, to send a song into space. To premiere our song from this new album. And not just about just the song, but starting this new chapter of our lives. This new tour, this new album, this new song, new video... this new life. And celebrating by sending a piece of our work up into this new territory.
9We (Thirty Seconds to Mars) would rather have 1,000 committed fans than a million people that just basically want to see what shoes you're wearing that day.
10We stand onstage and we look at an audience that we're incredibly proud to be in front of. You know? A vibrant audience of all kinds of ages, shapes, and sizes and gender. You'd expect because Shannon's so handsome that it would be mostly females there, but if you go to our shows... and we've done the math, it's usually 51% women and 49% guys. I think that's a testament to the music and not just good looks.
11[on what the name Thirty Seconds to Mars means] Certainly people always ask us about space because of the name of the band, but it's not so much about space for me. It's about pushing your limits. Pushing limits in general. It's about human potential and about dreams. That's interests me much more than any kind of science-fiction element.
12We seem to live in a world right now that seems to want to be anesthetized. That seems to want to just feel one thing. It's this slight sedation. It's not just music, either. You see it in film. It's the culture. Maybe people just want to escape.
13[on record deals with major labels] Every artist gets fucked, pretty much. It's more how much you're going to deal with and how right do they make it. How much success do you have. But virtually, in my opinion, all artists get screwed. If you're smart, you can be part of that small minority that doesn't get screwed. For the record, I'm not anti-label. I love a record company and don't want to be a record company. I love a group of people around the world helping us to bring our vision to the globe, and we need the help and support.
14[on the Thirty Seconds to Mars fanbase] Really, the Echelon is a name for a community. It's like there's this family around the world that's really a part of this, of which we're a part of. And they've joined us in this journey and made this a really wonderful and richer experience.
15Auditioning is probably akin to boiling your own testicles in vegan butter, or sawing off your butt lip and chewing on it like it's tobacco. That's another thing you could compare to auditioning.
16[on still being unmarried and not having kids] I joke with my brother, Shannon, and say that we've skipped our first divorces. Which is kind of nice! You know? And I also say we're getting so old that when we have kids they're going to come out and instead of saying "dad" they're going to go, "grandpa." I think that getting older is great because you have so much more to offer, you're so much more patient, and you've learned a lot of lessons that you can share. I know people who were older when they had kids and I think that's a really great thing. My mom was super young when she had kids and that was great too, so it really just depends on the person.
17[on his first job] It's a toss up if it was selling weed or working at a barbecue restaurant as a dishwasher. But at the barbecue restaurant, I got paid $2.50 an hour and I had taxes taken out, which I'm fairly certain was illegal at the time. I was just happy to have a job. That meant freedom to me. The weed could have paid better than the dishwashing, but the problem is getting high on your own supply and breaking that golden rule.
18What I get to do is make things and share it with the world. That's an incredible gift. I grew up very, very poor. I was born in Louisiana to a single mother who was 18-years old, had two kids. Pregnant the first time when she'd just turned 17. High school dropout. We had a very tumultuous childhood and adolescence and my brother and I are lucky that we're not in jail, to tell you the truth. Honestly. Most of our family, you either went into the military or you went to prison. Sometimes both, that was the escape. You know, I think I'm one of the few people in my family that actually graduated from high school.
19[on why Thirty Seconds to Mars mixes genres] My brother and I talked about that ever since we started making music. That we never wanted to be pigeonholed in one genre or style. You know, I think if you use guitars people are going to call you a rock band, but this album (Love Lust Faith + Dreams), there are a lot of songs with no guitars. Sometimes people don't realize it. But it's nice to break boundaries.
20[on why Thirty Seconds to Mars includes their fans in so much] You know, Bob Dylan said something interesting about people coming up to him and, I don't know if it was specifically about fans, but he says, 'just because you like my music doesn't mean I owe you anything.' And I think he does have a point. You know, just because we make music doesn't mean we owe anybody anything either, but I think we have a genuine interest and curiosity in people and the people that have supported us.
21[on why he practices method acting] It's just a way to concentrate.You know, when you make a film there's a lot going on. Sometimes a couple hundred people running around on set. So for me staying in character is just a way to be really focused and committed.
22I didn't have a very glamorous beginning. You know, I always thought I would be a visual artist. I went to art school, but at some point I fell in love with film and I thought that I would get a job as a director if I got a job as an actor first. That was my plan.
23[on Dallas Buyers Club] I kinda said no initially. And, in fact, the script was sent to me 15 years ago. It was a different script at that time, but it took about 20 years for the script to get made. I hadn't made a film in almost 6 years and we were touring excellently with Thirty Seconds to Mars, and the band had grown beyond any expectations that we ever had. We were making albums and just really busy, so there wasn't a lot of time to make films. When you make a film, I think some people don't understand it takes months and months and months because there's a preparation involved. You have to clear your schedule, so it's pretty time consuming.
24[on wearing high heels and waxing for Dallas Buyers Club] I was vintage only, so I was unable to enjoy the pleasures of modern footwear. I was in 1985 which the girls remember, 1985 was not too easy on the heel. But I was a size 12 and, uh, I was a natural. I gotta say, in the heel department. The waxing of the body was interesting and the heels were interesting. The tights were kind of tough. I don't know why. Maybe because I was so skinny But they cut off my circulation sometimes. I had to wear two pairs to cover tattoos on my legs, and I found the tights to be a little annoying.
25[on preparing for Dallas Buyers Club] I was already very thin. I may have got down to 112 or 113 (pounds), or something. I'm a healthy 150lbs. now. When you lose weight like that it's a great tool. It changes the way that you walk, the way you talk, the way you think, the way you feel, the way people treat you. It changes everything about who you are.
26[on what he likes in a woman] I like it all. Isn't that the problem? I just like it all. I appreciate women and all of their infinite, fascinating features.
27[on the role of Rayon] I remember sending a note to the producers, like, a week before shooting saying, I really want to make sure that this is a transsexual woman we're talking about. This is not someone who wants to play dress up, and if you want that then you should call somebody else because I'm not interested in that. I don't know how to do that.
28[on being sued for $30 million by Virgin/EMI] It wasn't fun. You know, to finally have success after groveling and working so hard for so many years, getting our asses kicked. To finally break through was a little bittersweet in some ways. We are still incredibly grateful for the success and would have paid to have the success, and in some ways we did. But it wasn't just specific to Thirty Seconds to Mars. It's really the way the industry works in general, so we went to war. We went to war with a standard, with an industry, with a practice, and we said that this isn't okay. And we were willing to fight in order to make it better and we did that. We ended up making a film about our battle with an industry, a record company that sued us for $30 million, after we said we're leaving. We're not going to play this game anymore. They slapped us with a lawsuit, we battled it out, and made a better deal for ourselves and a better life for ourselves.
29[on his relationship with Thirty Seconds to Mars fans] To us, it's really normal and organic. I would think it would be that way for every artist and their audience around the world, but I guess it's not because it's always pointed at that it's unique and different. And that's a nice thing. But we really just do what seems to make sense for us, and I think we have a lot of curiosity and made a music video and interview fans because I'm interested. There's really no other motivation behind it.
30[on whether being an actor helped his music career] It definitely didn't help. It certainly hurt. The only ways it helped is the things I learned as a creative person making films. You know, that I was able to apply work ethic or problem solving. Whatever you learn in one area of life you apply it to the other. So, that's where it helped was behind the scenes. But it never helped. It was always a distraction and I think we had to dig ourselves out of a hole, but that's okay. Everybody has their cross to bear and we have ours. We've had more success than we've ever dreamed, so it's hard to complain.
31[on dedicating his Oscars speech to his mother] You know, a funny thing happens while you're standing up there in front of all of these incredibly inspiring, impressive people that you've grown up watching on the screen. For some reason, I locked eyes with Robert De Niro at the beginning of my speech and he's looking at me like, 'you're screwing this up kid.' And I was like, you know what... I'm going to put my eyes back over at my mom. So, I saw (on her face) a lot of love and pride and... you know, my mom really made a life for herself and for her kids, like I said in the speech. I really just told the truth. When you have those moments, you can make a choice to take that light that's shining on you and reflect it back on other people that are important to you, and other things, and that's what I did. I was really glad that I was able to get up there and at least my brain worked enough so that I could spit out the words that I wanted to say.
32You know, 20-years ago I was experimenting, exploring, learning a lot about myself and about life. I would go back for the world, you know? Just thinking about age and getting older. I mean, it's a wonderful thing to leave the past behind and move forward toward new adventures. I feel like there are so many things in my life that I'm beginning again. I feel like I'm at a starting point. At least I've given you an honest interview. Not some fucking pre-canned actor bullshit.
33A lot of people don't know this, but I went to art school. I started when I was really young, about 17-years old. I went to the Corcoran School of Art in Washington D.C. which is part of the Smithsonian. I was studying figurative painting and I wanted to be a fine artist. That was really what I thought I would do with my life. And then I was taking a photography class, a sculpting class, and of course a pottery class which is a must. I recommend highly, it's always a fun class. But then I took and film class and that was it. I was obsessed.
34[on maintaining a vegan diet] I've been doing it for 22-years - the vegan diet - and it's working pretty good. I'm a 'cheagan.' I'm a vegan most of the time until I cheat. Then I'm a 'cheagan.'
35You know, one thing we've gotten really good at when we tour around the world is eating really good food. That's the amazing thing. You could be in Paris one day, Rome the next, and then Russia the next day.
36[on how touring changes relationships] First of all, it's hard to keep any just friends, more or less a girlfriend. How many times can you send your buddies emails, 'hey bro, in Paris thinking about you.' They're like, 'cool, see you when you get home.'
37I lusted to make something great with my life. To pursue my creative goals and ambitions and to make my dreams a reality.
38[on love, lust, faith, and dreams] I think they're all essential. I kind of think about them as the emotional equivalent of earth, wind, fire, water, the four elements of the Earth. I think they're all essential. You can't have one without the other. You have to have all of them in order to live a life. At least an interesting life.
39[on making Artifact] It was very difficult to make. We shot for two years, we edited for two years. It was a very difficult time and I wouldn't want to do it again. Being sued for $30 million by your record company is not a fun thing. But I think it helped us make a better album, helped us become closer as a band, and it was a big learning experience.
40Never let anyone else stop you from being who you really are.
41I always say the bridge between reality and dreams is good, old-fashioned hard work. So work, work, work, and then work some more. I think that work is the most important thing when you're in the business of dreams.
42I think the future is exciting.
43I never really thought that you could be a musician in a band. I never thought about fame. I never thought about any of that stuff. That early childhood, that creative exposure, really helped shape my brother and I in an important way.
44My brother and I were born in Louisiana. We climbed out of the muddy banks of the Mississippi with our instruments in one hand and a fist full of food stamps in the other. We had a very young mother. I think she was pregnant with me and had my brother by the time she was 18. When you're a kid and you're poor, I don't think you realize it. It wasn't until I got much older that I realized we didn't have money to go out and buy a bunch of presents. Every Christmas was really about making presents for each other. We moved around quite a bit as kids.
45I think that the Joker is inflicting upon the world the pain that has been inflicted upon him. So in a sense, there's some sort of revenge there. But I think it's all a big game. I think that if there's an opportunity to manipulate or intimidate, he finds that really exciting.
46Whatever I can do, I do it. I will be the fool, I will say something stupid or silly, I'll make you laugh, I'll make you cry, I'll beat you up verbally and physically, I'll run into the audience and shake you. Whatever I have to do in order to bring you to a place of joy, of freedom, of fun, a moment where you can forget all about the limitations in life and remember the possibilities, that's what I'm doing on stage every night.
47[on the Joker and Harley Quinn's relationship] I think people do crazy things when they're in love, and I think the Joker is. I don't know if you could call it love, but it's something similar. I think that Harley is a trophy for The Joker. Something he can possess and it's exciting for him to think about this creature that he helped create, being by his side as he dominates the world.
48[on 30 Seconds to Mars] There were definitely times where I felt like I could easily just have walked a different path and gotten my ass kicked maybe a little bit less. Certainly if I'd listened to the voices out there, whoever those voices are. I would have walked away and made films. It's not like I needed to go from Requiem for a Dream to the opening band, getting paid $200 a night, playing in front of 200 people. We went from getting rejected, complete rejection from MTV, to having a great relationship with the people there and doing really incredible things together. Not to mention winning dozens of MTV awards around the world. Despite all of the odds against us, we've done something true. Something meaningful. Something that's connected with the people who have heard it. Playing fucking arenas and stadiums all over the world. That's a fucking miracle. I'm acutely aware that we are walking on a very, very rare path. An exciting one.
49I think as soon as your start traveling, your perspective changes. You learn that the world includes a lot more people than just the ones you thought. It teaches you a ton and it changes your life.
50When I was a kid, I really thought that I would end up just being a drug dealer. But I did have a sense of ambition, even then. I thought I'd be a pretty big drug dealer. You know, growing fields of pot. Selling pounds and pounds of weed, and whatever else came my way.
51[on touring during the Arab Spring] It definitely made the experience that much more valuable for us. What was interesting was to see that not everybody agreed that the protests were the right thing.
52Sometimes when you feel like you've absolutely got nothing left, the energy of the people and their spirit can lift you up and give you unimaginable strength.
53I did a lot of crazy shit when I was young. So the fact that I'm here and alive, and not just locked up or fucked up or dead... it's a miracle. You know, I never thought I would ever be the guy on stage. I never thought that. The craziest part about living dreams, the absolute most insane part, is that if you go for it and actually fixate on the wildest dream that you have, there's a great chance that it actually could come true. You take the chance. You dive off into the abyss and sometimes you achieve.
54If you're stubborn enough and people realize you're not just going to go away, at some point they just give up and give you a hug and they say, 'hey come on in.'
55When you're young and you're looking at your life and the future and the possibilities, even completely reasonable goals and dreams can seem insurmountable. I always try to share that the idea that these things are unobtainable is often false. Sometimes when I'm at shows, I'll grab a few people and spend some time with them, before or after the show, and talk about life. But I think it's good to share some of the lessons learned. It's good to give back, if you can.
56[on living in Washington D.C.] The D.C. years were crazy. I mean, if my brother and I wrote a book and made a film about it, people probably wouldn't believe that it was true. We certainly would never need to embellish things that happened to us while we were in that city. You know, a single mom. Nurse. Two kids out of control.
57I never really fit in, though. I was never one of the popular kids and I always remember being on the outside looking in. That's how I always felt.
58One of the things that's really fascinating about being in a band and touring all over the world is that you're in this unique position that puts you in a business that is affected directly by things like social unrest. Political instability. We have had shows canceled and played in places that were going through tremendous social and political changes.
59[on 30 Seconds to Mars] I was a musician long before I was ever an actor. We were signed in 1998 and a band many, many years before that. The odds were always stacked against us. We've been either threatened to be dropped or dropped throughout our career by people who were seemingly very smart and knew a lot about the business. I believe that all of these challenges, they helped us grow as a band. We've had the good luck and fortune to have a slow, steady climb to the middle, as they say. Our career has never been defined by one moment, one performance, or one song. It's been defined by many smaller moments. And doing the 'unplugged' performance was one of those moments. It was nice, especially after being rejected by MTV earlier on in our career.
60You have to make the opportunity. It doesn't find you. You have to find it.
61Playing concerts is one of the few times, ever in the world, where you'll get a huge group of people that would normally disagree about almost everything, including sports, politics, or their favorite television show. You have arenas and stadiums full of people that agree about something. So it's a very special place to be and it's a very special energy to be a part of.
62[on 30 Seconds to Mars achieving success] You know, in a lot of ways we've always been the underdog and still are. We've been the dark horse, unexpected success. I don't think anyone ever thought we'd still be here and it's probably only because we've worked really, really hard. We certainly haven't just shown up for the party. We've been here and we've made things and shared those things with people and worked really hard to make things that we believe in. Things that we hope people have enjoyed.
63I remember at one point I had dropped out of school and once I decided to go back and finish, I found a school where I was able to squeeze two years into one.
64[on arriving in Haiti] Immediately you're in a different world.
65[on the 2010 Haiti earthquake] I lived in Haiti for a very short while when I was a kid. Even though it was this small period of my life, it was at an age and a time where that experience really stayed with me and helped shape the way that I see the world. An entire country was in ruins and just shattered to the core, and a year later it still is. There was still a lot of work that needed to be done and I wanted to go back to participate in some way and help people in need. So I went back to Haiti.
66[on performing live] It's that excitement you feel. That adrenaline. That fear. Joy. Being out there, that public solitude that you feel sometimes, where you're together but alone. There's some things, I guess, you can't describe.
67[on starring opposite Margot Robbie] Margot is very easy to have chemistry with. She's incredibly talented, she's very sweet, and she's a great actress. I think she was the perfect partner. Both, for me and for the Joker.
68[on playing Jordan Catalano] I feel like it was such a short period of my life. Let's face it, I barely spoke! I have a lot of gratitude for starting there, but they made such a big deal of the character in the show. I think for some people, especially girls at that time, it mirrored something in their lives. I don't know. It did make an impact for people, but it's always been so imbalanced with what the experience was for me in my own life.
69I didn't even know the word 'celebrity.' I didn't have posters of people that I loved on my wall. Like, I must have listened to Led Zeppelin II 16,412 times. I didn't even know what the fuck they looked like. I thought musicians and actors and these types of people were like magic. It was royalty or you were born into it, or it was some stroke of luck or genius.
70[on sending used condoms to fellow Suicide Squad cast members] Look, they weren't used condoms. Let's be real here. They're removed from their packages, but it wasn't actually used. And, of course, I was mortified. Like, 'Jared, put that stuff away - get that out of here, what are you doing?
71[to protesters in Ukraine, March 2014]. You guys are in the midst of something really beautiful . And it may be difficult, but there's no price too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
72[re transforming to play Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club (2013)] There were a lot of physical things going on, which is also dangerous, a trap, because it can get in the way. You could become this billboard for 'Look at me, look at me, look at me, and see all these things that I've done.' It can become a giant indication...Those things are great, because they do change the way people treat you, which is awesome for the role,. When you lose weight, it changes the way you walk and talk and think and feel. As soon as you put on a pair of heels, it changes your body center. Every morning, no matter what, I stepped out of that passenger van when I got dropped off on set, and I was wearing my heels. It didn't matter if it was 4 in the morning or whatever. I had my heels on, and that was a great way to set things for the day. You wear a little purse, it makes you move a slightly different; if you put on bracelets or have nails, your hands can move differently.
73[on preparing to lose 39 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club (2013)] When you lose weight it's almost like you lose part of yourself. It's an incredible commitment and, for me, was essential. It changes the way you walk, the way you talk, the way you act, the way you breathe, the way people treat you. [And] when you put on a pair of high heels, lipstick and a wig, it's incredible what you can find. It's pretty amazing.
74I've talked myself out of auditions a hundred times. I remember auditioning for Terrence Malick and the casting director upended a couch, and we were supposed to hide behind it and shoot imaginary guns! I literally stood up, took a few imaginary bullets and shoved [the casting director]. I said, 'I can't do this. This is like a bad high school play', and I walked out. And then Terrence called me and he's like 'Uh, Jared? I'd love you to be in my film'.
75(2013, on looking 31 at 41) I still have plenty of vices, but alcohol isn't one of them. It's probably just down to sleep and diet. If you travel long haul a lot or don't sleep much, it's not going to last very long, that's for sure. I'm pretty healthy so I think that helps a lot. I've been that way for a long time - 20 solid years of eating vegetarian/vegan and taking care of myself. That probably helps the preservation process.
76This band and its fans have always been the odd ones out. A lot of people in this family... have always felt that way. In my life I was never the popular kid or in the in crowd. [Interview, August 2011]
77(On losing the weight for Requiem for a Dream (2000)) I didn't eat. I'd have broccoli, cucumber, but just a few bites of little things, never more. It was the hardest thing I've ever done to myself, willingly. It was really painful starting to eat again after that. I was filled with a lot of guilt. It can be an addiction to not eat when you make such a strong commitment to that. I heard this story about an English woman who was in a sailboat race for months around the world. At the end of the trip, she said it was so hard to step off the boat. She wanted to go back and do it again, and that's how I felt with "Requiem". I was just bawling uncontrollably the last few days of shooting. I'd look at Darren Aronofsky and start crying. But there were moments of such reward.
78(On getting back to normal after the weight loss needed for Requiem for a Dream (2000)) It was difficult. I walked around New York City for a while. Ultimately, I went to Portugal and stayed in this old monastery for weeks and ate fish and potatoes.
79(2002, on auditioning as a newbie actor in Hollywood) It was challenging and nerve-racking. I remember hiding behind an overturned desk, shooting imaginary guns at people. One time, I stopped and said, "I can't do this. I feel like I'm in a bad high school play. I'm sorry I'm wasting your time, but I've got to go."
80(2002, on what would surprise people the most about himself) Messing with computer hardware. I take computers practically apart and put them back together. I have a supercomputer I built over the years out of different computers.
81(2002, on making Prefontaine (1997)) "Pre" was my first major part and I was pretty much operating under the assumption that I was going after the Olympics. [Laughs] I was so gung-ho and trying to do everything I could to be this guy. Plus, Prefontaine's family was around often, so it was a moving experience.
82(2002, on his wild youth) I stole a lot when I was a kid, but I wouldn't steal one candy; I'd take the whole carton. I also used to like to break into other people's houses and sit in their rooms. I found it very comforting to be in someone's empty house.
83(On living in Haiti) I was 12. It's the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. It was horrible to see people living in the street, in shacks, and bathing in sewer water and drinking bad water and begging and starving. It was unforgettable.
84I never look at myself as a closet actor wanting to make music or a closet musician wanting to act -- I'm very proud to do both and I don't put one above the other, I'm very grateful and excited by both opportunities -- it's really a unique opportunity to do both.
85Teens are always shown as one dimensional. They're stereotyped. When I was in high school, I cared about more than getting a date or making the team.
86I was raised around a lot of artists, musicians, photographers, painters and people that were in theater. Just having the art-communal hippie experience as a child, there wasn't a clear line that was drawn. We celebrated creative experience and creative expression. We didn't try and curtail it and stunt any of that kind of growth.
87I was never interested in 'Teen Beat' like roles. I just wanted to work.
88I could care less about anybody knowing who I am, but I realize this is part of the game. Maybe if I really hated this whole public thing, I would go do plays in Hoboken.
89All those reports that I sleep in my closet. I don't know how people get that. People are so obsessed with what you do at home.
90"I don't think Requiem for a Dream (2000) is for children, but I think if you went home and looked at the video games that your kids are playing, you'd be much more shocked." - Mr. Showbiz, November 2000.
