Jared Leto in a skirt: totally cute, or “put it away, meth-head”?


Michael K at Dlisted is happy about this. Jared Leto twit-pic’d this photo of himself with the line “Real Men Wear Skirts”. I have no doubt that real men wear skirts – I’ve known several real men that not only loved the occasional skirt, but liked some eye-makeup too. But my real question: does Jared Leto look good here? Yes, he’s “tight” and he’s got some awesome muscles… but he also looks really, really thin. Like meth-head thin. I’ve been wondering about Jared for a while – lately he’s been looking more and more drawn and more and more cracked-out. Perhaps he’s just really busy. Perhaps he just uses occasionally. Perhaps he’s blitzed out of him mind and he loves to wear skirts, because why not? Ugh.

But I am happy to see his hair a nice shade of brown. That bleached blonde Mohawk crap had to go. He looked like such a poseur. Now he looks authentic… authentically cracked-out.

    He is so beautiful…but I miss the Jordan Catalano version.

    ETA: That particular skirt has to go.

  2. Kimmm says:

    He looks so ” Zoolander”-ish in that blonde pic .

  3. Blondie says:

    Me no like…what happened to him??!!! he used to be so sexy and cool

    Must be the meth – when will people learn????

    Meth is bad for your soul and looks and body ;o(

  4. Kitten says:

    Jordan Catalano. Hot.
    He has been looking really thin but unless he’s hitting the ‘Tox I don’t think he’s doing Meth. His skin and face is just too perfect…Dude is 38-years-old! He is ageless.

  5. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    LOL Kimmmm thats the first thing I thought when I saw that pic.

    IDK I always say I would hit it no matter what but he looks so skinny and odd. Misshaped muscles are not hawt. The skirt on a man is hawt. Once when I was going to work I saw a guy in a skirt and he had the body and legs for it. He looked great albeit hairy.

  6. Samigirl says:

    I will always remember him from My So Called Life, and he was the first boy I ever thought was beautiful. He is still beautiful, but I prefer him as Jordan.

  7. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Poor guy, he really looks sick. I hope he gets the help he needs. This made me cringe.

  8. Rose says:

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME? He looks fit as hell.

  9. Riley says:

    Yeah he looks kind of sad and tragic. Even if he is not on drugs, which it really does look like he is, but if he is not, he has to have some awful eating disorder that he should try to get help with…

    Speaking of sad, tragic, and Michael Lohan’s balls, Kaiser, any word on whether LL will be returning to the slammer?

  10. Stephanie says:

    I, for one, do not and have not ever found him to be attractive. I’m more of a Hamm Fann, lol

  11. RHONYC says:

    the 2nd one. :-(

  12. Sarah says:

    Real men don’t wear skirts or makeup. Nope. Sorry.

    He used to be super hot now he’s just bleh. Still got a purty face but just doesn’t work for me anymore.

  13. Aviatrix says:

    Agree with Rose, he’s really fit. He doesn’t have that sickly pallor to him. That’s a body that needs fuel and uses it -and I’d totally love to be fuel. He bulled up to an almost recognizable size for a movie role and I think he might be taking his fitness on the edge of a little far. For that part where he played John Lennon’s assassin, he said that he would never let himself get in that bad of a shape again.

  14. Moreaces says:

    Minus the meth head,, he is one hot dude.

  15. Ron says:

    This guy will be 40 next year! What does he eat? How does he do it? I need to update my vomiting program.

  16. Obvious says:

    I’m with Aviatrix. I think he went overboard getting back into shape. He was puffed for that role.

    this man is all kinda of beautiful though. Even with the blonde hawk, his eyes….oh his eyes…..

  17. masonwasp says:

    This guy stinks of douchery. He’s beautiful, but I want to smack him on the back of his head and say, “Dude. Just stop. Just. Stop.”

    But maybe that’s just me.

  18. original kate says:

    meh to the skirt – here in seattle utili-kilts are all the rage. for some ungodly reason.

  19. Melissa says:

    He looks way too skinny. Also, it doesn’t look like him in the face – it looks like Oliver Hudson. Lastly, this doesn’t even look like a photograph. It looks like a painting. Either that, or it’s been photoshopped more than anything I’ve ever seen!

  20. Ashley says:

    No, Jared Leto does not do meth. In fact, he doesn’t drink alcohol, smoke or do any drugs. He’s claimed many times that he had a less-than-perfect 20s and became more interested in acting and his band than partying. I totally agree that he looks super thing. I kind of miss the Jared during “The Kill” video era. But, nonetheless, he has been on tour for like 2 years and I’ve been to their shows–they’re insane. I’m sure he burns an incredible amount of calories works out.

    Oh, he’s also a vegan so he doesn’t eat any meat, dairy, egg or animal products. The whole band is, actually.

    Love 30STM.

  21. Someone Else says:

    Meth head.

    So sad, what was once so pretty.

    And I’m still freakin’ over that video of the girl and the make up.

    I just can’t look at him the same way.

  22. Squirtle says:

    Hmm yeah he’s way too skinny for me! Yikes! Put down the protien shakes Jared and go get a hamburger!

  23. Novaraen says:

    He looks sickly and emaciated. Not hot at all.

  24. RobN says:

    Perhaps he’s busy? Doing what, exactly?

  25. Bodhi says:

    He doesn’t look remotely like a druggie. He is thin, yeah, but very fit. If he were on drugs (meth, smack, whatever, he wouldn’t have such well defined muscles. His body would be literally eating itself, which his clearly isn’t.

    My husband wear kilts all the time & I can promise you, he is a real man

  26. Sashi says:

    @masonwasp: no, it’s not just you, I want to tell him to just stop to!
    This guy is such a vain pretentious douche, it’s just unbelievable.
    It makes me sick that he is taking and posting all these shirtless pics of himself.
    Isn’t that a total turn off?
    And while I like lean and cut bodies and still think he is gorgeous, it is kind of obvious he is doing drugs.
    And only deluded fangirls like Ashley jump to his defense and say he is squeaky clean and is a healthy vegan.
    Please, as if he would go around and tell his fans he’s a coke or meth head.
    I’m positive he takes some kind of drugs.

  27. Renee says:

    He used to be so attractive. These pics make me cringe. Reminds me of Christian Bale in The Machinist.

  28. Brittney says:

    You posted some other recent modeling pictures of Jared last week, and I saw him in person a day later at a free concert at my college. I wondered if I’d notice the thin face from the modeling shots, but I didn’t.

    He does look pretty gaunt in these pictures, but when I saw him in the flesh last Friday (shirtless at that; some girl ripped his tank top off), he was actually the picture of health and energy. His body was toned and fit, his face was more filled-out than in these pictures (I think it has a lot to do with the lighting), and everything about him was stunning. He even body-surfed in the crowd and impressed me with his physical strength in dealing with a horde of particularly rowdy fangirls. (Cops had to get involved at one point.)

    For everyone saying he looks sickly or too thin, I will say that it’s largely the angles and lighting tricks of the photography. In fact, seeing him in person really shed some light for me on just how much images of celebrities can differ from the real, live people being represented.

  29. Jeri says:

    Meth-head looking. Bet Cameron has some stories to tell.

  30. Kitten says:

    I have a feeling that those crying “meth!” have never seen an actual meth addict. Just an FYI, those that suffer from the addiction are not modeling nor do their bodies look like this.

  31. Sashi says:

    @Kitten: well, the word “Meth Head” is used as an overexaggeration by most, just like “Crack Head”. Of course it’s not nice towards people who really struggle with bad addictiions to meth or crack.
    But the suspicion that Jared might use some illegal substances are not far fetched! There are tons of vain drug users who still work out and look after their bodies. Goes perfectly well together, look at Hollywood.
    Oh wait, isn’t that where Jared comes from…

  32. Platy says:

    Ugh. I really hate this dude. SUCH a poser.

  33. Hera says:

    This guy is such a narcissistic self-absorbed jerk! He is a nasty piece of work and has some serious anger management problems or some mental disorder. Or it’s the drugs. Either way, his behavior is really erratic and he can be rude as hell, even to his fans (hard to believe there is such a thing, how could you be a fan of such a tool).

  34. Kim says:

    Why not- hes a rocker and has always had funky style plus he is wearing it with tights so its not like its some short skirt you can see his junk in. He is cute and talented and his ego seems to have calmed down big time from a few yrs ago. Not in love with the new skinny/muscle body though.

  35. Hera says:

    @Kim: I don’t care about the skirt. It’s just such a poser move to post a topless pic on twitter. He’s probably jerking off to all the responses he gets right now.
    What makes you think his ego has calmed down? His ego is as big as ever, if not bigger.

  36. Ms_Fu says:

    Yeah, real men wear pants and skip the eye makeup. Sorry.

  37. Kate says:

    He reminds me of that hot guy we all went to school with, who you know was all sorts of cracked out, but he was still hot enough for the occasional bio class fantasy.

    But yeah, he seriously needs to go away. Over it.

  38. truthzbetta says:

    He does look a tad thin, but he is just so beautiful.

    I’ve only seen him looking sweet and sincere and rather modest about his gorgeousness in interviews but maybe I missed something.

    Dreamy dude. Nice to see some Jared, he’s not around as much as he deserves. That’s a whole lot of hotness and talent in one package.

  39. Alarmjaguar says:

    I’m of the opinion that real men wear whatever the hell they feel like wearing.

  40. Taurus says:

    Scrawny but fcuking gorgeous!!! There no way he’s on meth, his face is too flawless. He so beautiful! He has one of those faces that you can’t help but to stare at when he’s asleep.


  41. Christie says:

    Who would not jump this man? WHO??? I don’t care if he wears a clown suit–he cannot disguise the hotness no matter what he does. Have always loved loved scrawny guys, so that doesn’t help. More Leto!

  42. Christie says:

    Looked at that pic again, and that is not scrawny, that is ripped to the bone. *drools

  43. Diva says:

    Doesn’t look like any meth head I’ve seen, and we have a ton of them around here.

    I think he’d be hotter with a little more meat on him, but the face is still flawless!

  44. Chris says:

    The guy has abs to die for, I doubt he’s addicted to meth and if uses it so what?

  45. DrM says:

    Not hot in the top pick…far too thin. Jared mate – eat a sandwich and have a pint with it…while you’re working out even!

    And I liked the blond hair, made his eyes stand out…

  46. crazydaisy says:

    What is a Real Man, anyway?

    Make-up for men always grossed me out. But I’m not crazy about it for women, either. (See Taylor Momson raccoon eyes post. Blech.)

    Skirts? I don’t know. Robes are ok, kilts fly in Scotland so why not skirts? They ARE comfy after all.

  47. Lway says:

    @ Kaiser. I thought you were joking when you said “Meth-Head” – got the shock of my life when i opened and saw him looking like that ……. gross.

    He USED to be HOT

  48. Jaye says:

    Guys, c’mon. We all know he’s fit as fcuk,I think you’re telling tales if you wouldn’t do him if you had the chance. His body is stunning and I loved the blonde hair, it set his eyes of perfectly; shame he’s returned it to it’s natural colour but whatever. To be honest, he may be a twit, but there’s something about him that you can’t help being drawn in by. Those who don’t believe me haven’t seen 30STM live, obviously. Who cares if he does meth or whatever? It’s his choice if he wants to mess himself up. However, meth or no meth, he looks good for 38, yes?
