Jared Leto: Awards Don't Make Me Feel Better About Myself

Jared Leto: Awards Don't Make Me Feel Better About Myself

Jared Leto goes incognito in a bulky winter jacket while arriving at LAX Airport just in time for Thanksgiving on Wednesday (November 26) in Los Angeles.

The 41-year-old Dallas Buyers Club actor recently talked with Rolling Stone about all the accolades he is receiving for his work in the new film.

“People think I’m anti-awards ceremonies, but it’s great to celebrate the movie,” Jared said. “Most of the time you make an independent film, it doesn’t all come together the way you hoped, and it breaks your heart. And when it does work it’s like, ‘F–k yeah, let’s celebrate this.’”

“The thing I’ve been criticized for the most, I’ve actually been awarded for the most. In the kitchen, I must have 15 or 20 MTV awards, and a ton of others for the music,” Jared added. “And I never got an award as an actor until the other night – I’ve gotten two now for Dallas Buyers Club. The moral is that I never got an award that made me feel better about myself.”

    So he didn’t care for the other awards he gotten for his music. He is dissing those awards. Those have no meaning to him. He likes the ones he is getting as an actor. Hypocrite.

    Jared is a very humble person, I am so proud of him, he is an inspiration for me, I love you and I love Rayon…… I´m sure you will get the Oscar and a lot more.

    Hey Sam! who does not feel better in being recognized for their work? and as a musician he already feels done about awards. And now with the new awards as an actor, he feels fulfilled completely, to being recognized in her two professions. With that, feel better about yourself.

    I haven’t watched the movie, but I’m looking forward to seeing Jared as Rayon, I love him as an actor. And as a musician too! And from what I saw in videos, movie trailer, Jared is spectacular. I smell Oscar! If he wins, will surely be deservedly. He is always very dedicated in his characters. I admire that!

    He didn’t say he didn’t appreciate awards! Just these are the first for his acting. People put words into people’s mouths sometimes.

    @Sam: That’s not at all what he said. He meant that he is often criticized/bashed for his music, but he has all these awards for it. He always gets great reviews for his acting, but he had no awards for it. Perfect example: I have a friend who said he will watch him in anything but can’t stand his music.

    Dawn Says:

    I love both his music and his acting, he deserves all the awards/ praise received.

    If Jared Leto does not win an academy award for Rayon/Raymond, there is no justice to the system. He out acted Matthew McCaunghey. And that is something. Quite a movie.

    Don’t think the title is accurate!!
    I might be reading it all wrong but the way I see it, when Jared says “I never got an award that made me feel better about myself” Is not saying he doesn’t care for it! He is actually saying that that’s the most special award for him (that no other made him feel better)… An award for doing something he is passionate about but never gotten any recognition for.
    He actually starts by saying he is not anti-awards!
