Jared Leto Opens Up About Doing Drugs as a Teenager

Jared Leto sports longer hair under a baseball cap on Wednesday afternoon (July 27) in New York City.

In case you didn’t know, the 44-year-old Suicide Squad member goes shirtless on the latest cover of Rolling Stone.

During the interview, he opened up about doing drugs when he was younger.

“My experience with drugs?” Jared told the mag. “I did them, lots of them. A lot of them were really fun. There are just those few that tend to kick you in the ass. I guess at some point, too, there’s a decision: Is this going to be my life? I made a choice to pursue other dreams. I guess that’s just the kind of fucked thing about a lot of drugs: The opportunity cost is too high. Some drugs are incredible, but the risk versus reward is out of line. I just saw too many examples of what not to do.”

    I can assure you that he isn’t straight edge at all. Seen him off his chops at Coachella in recent years.

    Nice message Mr. Leto… “drugs are fun” i guess all the drug use over the years turned your brain into mashed potatoes to make such stupid statements….

    are you an idiot? did you not read anything but that one sentence and then make this stupid fucking comment?
    time to educate you.. as a recovered drug addict I’d be lying if i said drugs we never fun…of course they were fun why would I have ever done drugs if i didn’t like them, the problem was that they were only fun for a very short amount of time. That fun turned to darkness, loneliness and a few near death expiernce’s, the “fun” in no way outweighed the bad because when the fun was fantastic the bad was always horrendous. So don’t sit there and type “all the drug use over the years turned your brain to mush” because your the one with mush for brains if you couldn’t find the fucking time to read the whole article but had time to write a comment that would offend the whole recovered addict community, Leto didn’t just say “drugs are fun”, he was instead being honest when he said “drugs were fun but the “fun” wasn’t worth the bad that drugs can do”. next time really read something all the way through, before making a stupid, offensive and ignorant comment.
