article imageJared Leto wins 'Hollywood Breakthrough Actor Award'

By Markos Papadatos     Oct 13, 2013 in Entertainment
Jared Leto is best known as the lead singer and multi-instrumentalist of the rock group, Thirty Seconds to Mars, but he is also a talented actor.
He stars opposite Matthew McConaughey in the major motion picture Dallas Buyers Club. Most recently, both actors were honored at this year's Hollywood Film Festival for their superb acting performances, where they had to undergo intense physical and emotional transformations to portray their characters.
It was reported in an interview that he did with The Wrap, that Jared Leto lost approximately 30 to 40 pounds for the role, simply as a result of not eating.
That sacrifice ultimately paid off since Leto took home the "Hollywood Breakthrough Actor Award" for his portrayal of a transgendered woman named Rayon, meanwhile McConaughey was named "Actor of the Year."
With all the good buzz that the film is accumulating, I would not be surprised if both actors, McConaughey and Leto, find themselves in the line-up for the prestigious Academy Award in the "Best Actor" and "Best Supporting Actor" categories respectively.
