    WoW! Thats alot of meth usage! He does look nice and ready for rehab tho… A shaved head, a car beating, a 666 on his forhead, and a bedsheet around his neck and he would make the perfect Disney prodigy!

    I don’t doubt that he lost an abnormal amount of weight, but still, a lot is being done here by way of posing and photo retouching to exagerate the weight he actually lost.

    That ain’t nothing compared to Christian Bale’s weight loss for his role in “The Machinist” and immediate gain for “Batman Begins.”

    For sure. I think Bale is one of the greatest actors to not have gotten an Oscar yet. It must’ve been exhausting because look at how buffed up he was for “Batman Begins” then how emaciated-looking he was for “The Machinist”. Not to mention he was super fit for “American Psycho” before as well. Talk about weight fluctuation. I mean, it seems to me that it’s a lot easier to gain weight then lose it, than to lose weight then rapidly gain it in a course of six months along with muscle and stuff.
    Yeah, Jared looks a lot better now.

    That’s Terry Richardson, the photographer.

    Well, he’ s becoming a serious actor.
    I hope everything is ok, cause it seems like he lost weight too quickly. Not sure it all happened naturally.
    Congrads, Jared!

    So what? He’s supposed to be an actor not some circus freak. What does this have to do with his abilities to portray another character?

    I’m sure Jared used speed to lose that weight that quickly. No doubt about it. Still, it takes discipline to stop eating. He added extra impetus after he looked so fug and was getting ragged about it after the movie wrapped. He’s doing a yoga move, sucking in his stomach. The transformation’s pretty cool.

    As far as Christian Bale, he did “The Machinist” BEFORE he did Batman. I read interviews where he said all he ate for the machinest was NOTHING, but coffee and cigarettes. Disgusting. He looks great now though. “The Machinist” was a great picture, and he was even THINNER in that movie than Jared is in the above photos. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Those pictures are quite scary…I have never understood the mentality of the film industry today…they like to reward actors who undergo these unhealthy transformations for roles…it promotes eating disorders and unhealthy eating habits…a sure way to win an Oscar: gain 75 pounds, let the industry de-beautify you and make sure you lose that weight again to show the true commitment…it is sick and unnecessary…I find nothing impressive about promoting ED’s and bad health habits…

    I used to think Jared Leto was sexy… now, not so much. If I wanted to masturbate to the image of a starving Somalian child, I would just do it.

    I am from Ireland and I met this guy about 8 years ago . He is the biggest sleeze ball alive – he likes underage girls and has the most awful sense of humour … I loved him years ago but after meting him and hearing what happned to a good friend of mine when she was with him in a hotel room I was quickly turned off . He is a nasty piece of work

    I can’t understand why they don’t look for an actor who just fits. It’s unhealty to gain and lose weight like this.

    ew…I regret looking at this now.
