I only did karaoke once in my life. It was with Courtney Love and it was a total disaster. She pulled me on stage in front of 500 people at a wedding. I'd never done karaoke before.
A very common thing these days is people show up and they ask us in the band to sign with a Sharpie right on their skin and they go get it tattooed the next day. Then they'll show up at another show and they'll have their tattoo.
When you make music, you're in really direct contact with your fans out there, so you hear all kinds of stories.
It's nice to be able to communicate digitally with people around the world.

“You can climb the social ladder of Hollywood,...It’s a long, arduous haul filled with the dead bodies of those who have come before you. And there’s a dark side.” Jared leto - (Great Wide Open Premiere Hollywood. 2016)
I think Andy Warhol said it best, he said 'Labels are for cans, not for people'. Jared Leto. (April 2010)
"If you read between the lines,
you're only going to find more lines,
I'm not a reality star, I went to art school. I thought I would be an artist.
That's all I really wanted to share with people. I still feel the same way." - JARED LETO - Nylon Magazine 2014.
I don’t think people are done with ambition or creative dreams. Just because you can make a video for $500 doesn’t mean that’s the only video that should be made. Cultural exchange and that sort of thing is awesome. It brings about unique experience both for the filmmakers and the people watching it, whether it’s a video shot on an iPhone or something shot on film and Anamorphic, there’s room for everything
I liked the scarves. I thought there was something about it that seemed right. But it came from some research that I did, from photos in the ’70s and ’80s of people that were very inspiring.
was born next door in Louisiana. I have family, as well, in Texas. So that melody is familiar to me and certainly family members and friends and specific people that I did research with helped to inform the voice. And the voice is a very important source of inspiration
Dallas Buyers Club
It was a really unique experience and certainly people’s perspective changed. How they looked at me changed. And it’s a rare thing to experience that perspective shift in others. So yeah, you get treated different and it’s good to learn about that and apply that to the role.
Dallas Buyers Club
"I went to Whole Foods and I remember getting three distinct looks. One was, 'Who is that?' The second was, 'What is that?' And the third was, 'I don't know what that is, but I don't like it.' And it was interesting to get that condemnation. Easy for me, because I'm playing a part, but it was important to kind of understand and acknowledge that."
“A big part of what 30 Seconds to Mars has always been about is the live aspect. We put a lot of thought and time and energy and passion into how we present ourselves. This (tour) is going to give us the opportunity to explore a lot of different things. It's been a long time coming.”
"There's a perspective there and it's a human being in the
crossroads, in this pinnacle, in this precarious balance of
decision making. It's really about brutal honesty and about
going to war with yourself and hopefully winning. In a sense,
it's conceptual because every song on the record has that
perspective and comes from that place of self-examination,
change, ultimately rebirth and renewal. It's about this choice
to believe, and it's an optimistic choice even though the word
'lie' is in it, it's an optimistic title because no matter
what happens we collectively as a race continue to keep moving
forward regardless of the insanity."”
"I think I learned a lot from Thirty Seconds to Mars. I learned a lot from directing. I learned a lot from touring around the world and I applied all that to the role. I poured it all in to this portrayal and this unique person,”
About the weight loss,
Leto said, “It was the only way that I could do what I had to do. I mean it's not a good thing to do. It's certainly not a good thing to keep doing. Your body is not a rubber band. It doesn't always bounce back or snap back. It's something that you should be very careful about. I would never recommend anyone doing it.”

“It's wonderful when art and creativity are celebrated. I don't thumb my nose at it at all
“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.”
I’ve heard that i’m a whore, i’m gay, i smoke crazk, that i’m a total prick...”
“We never want to be a band that keeps our fans at arm’s length. This has always been about us and our fans together. We’ve been on an amazing journey with our fans already, but knowing that the best is still to come is a pretty
exciting feeling for all of us.”
“Approval isn’t necessary. It’s nice when you get it, but it’s not going to stop us from being who we are. I mean, if I’d have listened to approval, I’d never have made it one day onstage. But to be criticized, if there’s validity, as upset are you are, you can learn from it.”
