Jared Leto Comes OUT!

Jared Leto just came out of the closet on AOL.  Click here to read the interview.  There's also a nice picture of Jared looking smoulderingly sexy ala Charlize Theron in Aeon Flux.  Jared's always been a fave of mine.  Loved him in the wonderful Requiem for a Dream.  Fantastic acting from the whole cast, especially Oscar laureates Ellen Burstyn and Jennifer Connolly.  Marlon Wayans gives an excellent dramatic performance.  He's usually over the top goofy so this was quite a stretch for him.  Maybe not.  Dying is easy.  Comedy is hard. 

Jared has been in so many good films: Fight Club, The Thin Red Line, Girl Interrupted.  My personal favorite is Highway, a buddy, on the road, crime thriller costarring studly Jake Gyllenhaal.  I'm so happy for Jared.  But reading his bio at the IMDB, it must be a little embarrassing in retrospect, being connected to Cameron Diaz (engaged from 2000 to 2002).  You know, that says something.  It puts Ms. Diaz' sexuality in doubt, and most certainly Justin Timberlake's.  Well, we'll just have to see, won't we?  Hollywood: the place of plastic dreams.
