Jared Leto stars in one of the most talked about movies of the season, Dallas Buyers Club, and yet he refuses to see the Golden Globe-nominated film.
While appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday, the 30 Seconds To Mars singer said he covered up his ears because, “I didn’t want to hear my voice or anything.”
Jared, who lost a tremendous amount of weight for the role, plays a transgender person with AIDS. “I haven’t watched it yet,” he said, “I get a little self conscious. I did my part and it’s kind of good for me right now to let other people enjoy the film. I’d nitpick it to death anyway. I probably couldn’t put up with it.”
But the 42-year-old actor/singer, who has won 24 films for the role thinks it’s “the coolest thing” that movie goers don’t know he’s playing the character until they see credits at the end of the film.
