Jared Leto

Hello !

This time, I haven’t chosen to talk about a movie or a book…but about an actor who is also a singer, a producer and a model (that I really really really really like). And this guy is Jared Leto

Jared Joseph Leto was born on December, 26, 1971 in Louisiana. Unfortunately, his parents divorced when he was just a newborn. But shortly after, his mother married Carl Leto who gave his name to Jared and his brother Shannon. But once again, his mother divorced. However, Jared and his brother retained Carl’s last name. Jared also has a half-brother, Robert Greenwood (he filmed one of his video clip and appeared in another one.) Then, a few years later, he went to the University of the Arts in Philadephia and developed an interest for comedy. Finally, he studied cinema in the New York City School of Visual Arts.

Let’s talk about his career:

Speaking of cinema, he became famous for his role in the tv show « My So-Called Life » (which has been canceled after one season). Thereby, he played in a few famous movies like The Thin Red Line directed by Terrence Malick in 1998, in David Fincher’s Fight Club in 1999, also in Requiem for a Dream by Darren Aronofsky and Mr Nobody by Jaco Van Dormael in 2009. Finally, we will also fin him playing the Joker in Suicide Squad, this summer.


To conclude about his cinematographic career, he won many rewards, and particularly an oscar in the Best Actor in a supporting role’s category in 2014.

Now, let’s talk about his group : Thirty Secondsto Mars. It is an alternative rock band formed in 1998.  It is composed of Jared Leto (vocals and guitar), his brother Shannon Leto (drums and percussion) and of Tomo Mili?evi? (guitar). They released four albums : a first one called Thirty Seconds To Mars in 2002, then A Beautiful Lie in 2005, This Is War was the third one in 2009, and finally there was Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams in 2013. They won many rewards such as 8 MTV Europe Music Awards, 1 Billboard Music Awards… for a final result of 85 rewards on 167 nominations.

And you, what do you think about this band, and this guy? Have you ever listened this band? Do not hesitate to react about this article!

See you.

  1. OMG of course I know Jared!! 😀 I know that he play as Harry in Requiem for a Dream (even if I didn’t watched this movie yet. ^ ^; ) I also love his band and especialy the song: The Kill, in which the clip is clever reference to the famous horror movie: Shining ;). I know that this song is pretty old, but I still love it! 😀 ? ? ?
    I’m very happy that someone wrote an article about Jared, thank you very much!! 🙂

  2. Wow Alex, I had no idea he was the singer of Thirty Seconds to Mars! I was crazy about him as an actor, I think I really has a strong gaze but I also listened to Thirty Seconds to Mars without knowing he was part of it! I remember thinking once that he looked like Jared Leto while watching a live performance… What a stupid coincidence! 😉
