Wait, what? Jared Leto admitted in an interview with the New York Times' Thursday's TimesTalks that he has yet to watch his award-winning flick Dallas Buyers Club in its entirety.
"I can't hear that voice! I've never really heard very much of it and I've never watched the film," the actor — who took home the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as a HIV-positive transgender woman — said while plugging his ears as the Times played a clip. "I will [watch it] at some point, I'm sure. But too soon!" he said. "It can never live up to the expectations I would have of it now because it was such a beautiful experience and the response that it got was really wonderful."
The 30 Seconds to Mars rocker also spoke with the Times about winning the Oscar, admitting he felt "panic" during his acceptance speech.
"The funny thing that happens is you do have all of these events happening, so it's not like you can just obsess on that one thing. It's not like you can save everything for that one night," he explained of award season. "And also, you don't know if you're going to get it. So, you don't want to be too cocky, you don't want to have something planned out, because you don't want to jinx this incredible moment."
"I was talking to [Leonardo DiCaprio] at the Golden Globes and he said, 'When you're standing up there, it's just gone,'" he recalled. "And I remember standing there…and I'm like, 'Holy, s–t! Okay! We're here,'" Leto said of being on the Academy Awards' stage. "I looked out and you see all these faces. It's Meryl Streep, it's [Oprah Winfrey] and it's Harrison Ford — it's all these people. And then who do I look at? Robert f–king De Niro, the scariest guy in the entire place. And he's looking at me like, 'What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do, kid?'" Leto said.
"I knew that it was an incredible opportunity and I wanted to thank my brother…and my mom. I knew I wanted to say something about this great big planet that we've had the privilege to travel around."
