Jared Leto: 'I Basically Didn't Eat' for 'Dallas Buyers Club'

Jared Leto hits the red carpet at the premiere of his documentary Artifact held at the Paramount Theater during the 2013 SXSW Film Festival on Wednesday (March 13) in Austin, Tex.

The 41-year-old actor then attended the Samsung Q&A and after party for the documentary, which is about his band 30 Seconds to Mars‘ legal battle with music label EMI.

Jared also opened up about losing about 30 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

“I got down to 116 or something,” Jared revealed. “I just basically didn’t eat. I ate very little. I had done similar things with weight, but this was different. I think the role demanded that commitment…It was about how does that effect how I walk, how I talked, who I am, how I feel. You know, you feel very fragile and delicate and unsafe.”

Also pictured: Jared arriving at LAX Airport on Thursday (March 14) in Los Angeles.

    I remember this guy looking sharp ONCE in a period movie in the 90s.. he looked amazing back then. he tries so hard to look messy like johnny depp. WHAT GIVES? NOW he looks wasted on drugs just like johnny. Grreat looking men who try really hard to look edgey, instead of clean and sharp.

    I find it gross how all these actors/actresses are so proud of how they starved themselves “for their art.” Personally, I think it’s vain, not impressive. I should not know how you looked or weighed before or after the project, your acting should just speak for itself. Portman changed the game now into how much weight you’re willing to lose for an Oscar. Can they make a separate category for a Weight Loss/Dedication Oscar and keep the acting Oscars still based on actual acting ability?
