Jared Leto: Years ago, there was a rumor going around that I was dead because I was working in Ireland. Once I got back, people who seemed very upset would come up to me and say, "We thought you were dead!"
Jared Leto: I spent some time in prison. Just the normal stuff. Listen, I've had so much edge in my life, I don't need to contrive any. I'm not gonna front like Mr. Angst.
Jared Leto: I don't think [Requiem for a Dream] 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.
Jared Leto: I showed up in LA with $500 and a backpack and I stayed at a shelter, so nobody handed me anything. I worked for every single thing that I have.
Jared Leto: It's not like I'm hanging out at shopping malls or going to celebrity golf tournaments. I'm so in my own little world. I got my dog, my music, my brother, a couple of friends.
Jared Leto: You know you're really famous when there's rumors about you being gay.
Jared: Well, the experience for me making a film is the most profound one. I really don't have any business watching the movie so much. Maybe I could watch it for entertainment purposes, but you have so little input and control of the final product once you're done that I feel like I just would rather leave it alone. It kind of leaves me in a place where every film I do, I'm kind of having to reinvent and figure out how to start again fresh, and hopefully not repeat myself.
Jared: I was never interested in `Teen Beat` like roles. I just wanted to work.
Jared: There are some people who might look better if you smacked them in the head with a baseball bat.
Jared: I've always liked Saturn. But I also have some sympathy for Pluto because I heard it's been downgraded from a planet, and I think it should remain a planet. Once you've given something planetary status it's kind of mean to take it away.
Jared: It's nice because I think a lot of people would rather stay home and play a video game these days then go to a rock show.
Jared: I 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.
Jared: My coolest job was when I was 12 and I was a dishwasher at the Three Pigs Bar-B-Que for $2.50 an hour. All the fleabags and stoners worked there, so that's where I wanted to be. - Detour, November 1996.
Jared: High school is a dark place; I hung out with 'freaks.'
Jared: All 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.
Jared: Teens 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.
Jared: I was very much in my own world, never the popular kid. But I had a great family, a great brother and mother.
Jared: Years ago, there was a rumor going around that I was dead because I was working in Ireland. Once I got back, people who seemed very upset would come up to me and say, "We thought you were dead!
Jared: DVD box sets are really good on a tour bus because you get hooked in for hours at a time while you're driving from Texas to Atlanta. I also just watched the first season of 24, I thought that was really good, too.
Jared: When I was a kid I was the king of mullets. If you're wearing a rock T-shirt and you're a fan of Rush - one of the greatest bands in the universe - you've got to have a mullet.
Jared: It was great growing up a nomad. To this day I still love hiking and back packing.
Jared: No, I don't wear contacts, and contrary to what some people have said, I do not have a glass eye.
Jared Leto: All of my roles have had their own unique set of challenges, and I enjoy that in some perverse, masochistic way. I'm always dying though! Maybe I have some kind of fetish.
Jared: I was raised around a lot of artists, musicians, photographers, painters and people that were in theatre. 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.
Jared: I take computers practically apart and put them back together. I have a supercomputer I built over the years out of different computers.
