Jared Leto showed off his super skinny body and shaved off eyebrows in a photo shot by Terry Richardson. If you thought photos of Matthew McConaughey playing an AIDS victim in Dallas Buyer’s Club were scary, he’s got nothing on his costar, Jared Leto. Jared actually dropped the weight rather fast, given that he only signed on to the role a few weeks ago.
Matthew has lost 30 pounds so far, but nutritionist Majid Ali told RadarOnline that it looks like the 5’9″ Leto has already dropped down to 120 pounds.
Jordan Catalano, say it ain’t so!
“I’m playing a transsexual woman,” Jared told Vulture. “I didn’t get involved in the project until a few weeks ago, three and a half weeks ago.”
Jared is a pro at changing his weight for roles, packing on 67 pounds for his role in Mr. Nobody and losing crazy amounts of weight to play a drug addict in Requiem for a Dream. “Your body goes through weird stages,” he told Vulture of his most recent attempt to slim down drastically. “Sometimes it’s hard to hold on to water. But for me, it’s not about the most weight I can lose, it’s more to represent the character. I’m focused on what it means to be a transsexual woman.”

Jared has also waxed off his eyebrows and leg hair in order to play a believable transsexual woman in Dallas Buyer’s Club. Despite his insane measures to transform for his latest role, Leto insists there are other benefits to extreme weigfht loss: “Historically, people have done it for pursuit of self, to achieve a meditative state, so I’m hoping for that, and not the other things… It’s not necessarily a bad thing.”
While we appreciate Jared’s dedication to his role and side pursuit of finding a deep meditative state, we really hope he returns to his usually hot self sooner rather than later.
