Raised on the road in Alaska, Virginia, Haiti and Brazil by his photographer mom, Jared Leto continued his transient lifestyle after graduating from high school in Massachusetts by studying painting at Philadelphia's University of the Arts and filmmaking at New York’s School of Visual Arts. In 1992, he headed west to try acting and by 1994, he was making girls swoon as Jordan Catalano on "My So Called Life." He transitioned to film easily. Tackling the tragic story of Olympic runner "Prefontaine" in 1997 made critic’s realize he was more than a pretty face despite multiple appearances on People’s Most Beautiful list. Possibly to combat the pretty boy image, he took several roles that uglied him up including "Fight Club," "American Psycho" and "Panic Room." He lost 30 pounds for 2000’s "Requiem For A Dream" and gained nearly 60 for 2007’s "Chapter 27." In 1998, he started a band, 30 Seconds To Mars, with his brother. As lead singer and guitarist he devoted more time to stage than screen especially after their sophomore album A Beautiful Lie spawned a successful single “The Kill." His triumphant return as transgender AIDS patient Rayon in "Dallas Buyers Club" left him with a supporting actor 2014 awards season sweep: an Oscar, Globe, SAG, MTV Movie Award and Spirit. The vegetarian has also made headlines with his off-screen love interests like Cameron Diaz (engaged), Scarlet Johansson, Ashley Olson and Lindsay Lohan as well as some angry encounters with paparazzi.
