Jared Leto Weighs In on Kanye West & Taylor Swift

Jared Leto Weighs In on Kanye West & Taylor Swift

Jared Leto looks so suave on the cover of GQ Style‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 44-year-old Suicide Squad star had to share:

On rumors: “I’ve had rumors bother me. Especially if they’re hurtful or spiteful and not true. And then sometimes it doesn’t at all—you just laugh it off. Something can also not annoy you or be hurtful but be wrong. There’s going to be people who love you, people who hate you. It doesn’t matter if you’re Barack Obama or the Pope. If you’re Kanye or Taylor Swift. There’s gonna be people that love you and people that don’t. And thinking that you can please the world or convince everyone otherwise is a fool’s errand.”

On Kanye West: He’s a friend and has always been. Kanye has always been the nicest person to me, kind and generous. I think he’s a talent, and I really appreciate his ability to speak his mind. I’m very different. I’m very careful and cautious because I don’t want to deal with the other things that come along with speaking out like that. But I do appreciate that in other people.

On Taylor Swift: She’s great. She triggers a conversation with myself about what’s possible. And you know, the thing I like about Taylor is she’s a self-made woman. I see that in my mother. There were probably points in Taylor’s career where someone else maybe would have been knocked off balance by criticism or other challenges, and she just kept marching forward.

On the idea of a gay leading man: “I definitely don’t think a gay leading man would have the same opportunities as a straight leading man. I don’t think that. Not for a single second. I don’t know if that’s offensive or not, but that’s my thought right now. It shouldn’t be that way. I don’t think you’ll have as many opportunities. And I think you could say the same for minorities…. I think that this is still a very conservative business.”

    That comment explains why he has never come out publicly.

  • YupVideoFever

    Hush!… there is a chance he gets offended on that.

    p.s. Respect JLeto deeply. Think of him as a talented artist. He likes to dig into roles like noone else.

  • getoffmylawn

    can’t stand him. so full of himself.

  • damian gonzales

    this fool is one of those many “rockers” who are known for having a big mouth and not by know how to play a guitar.

  • alex

    friend of kanie?really?poor stupid, hide gay,and asshole…….he’s a ’45,must open they eyes……ok,very cool but stupid……

  • Γωγώ Μακρή

    “I really appreciate his ability to speak his mind. I’m very different. I’m very careful and cautious because I don’t want to deal with the other things that come along with speaking out like that.” and then goes and says that about gay leading men. It’s not a matter if he’s right or wrong, it’s a matter of being so blunt about such a sensitive issue and then saying he doesn’t know if that’s offensive…sure, Jan.

  • Anna

    Are you kidding?! Jared Leto is a known womanizer. He’s literally slept with every female in the business. I highly doubt he’s gay. If he comes out as gay, I’d be absolutely shocked. I can see him being bi though.

    Speak English or atleast try properly. English is my third language, so you have no excuses for that aweful shitshow that I just read.

  • mabh94

    Well, he’s not exactly a womaniser. He just likes other women. But I 100% think he’s bi.

  • mabh94

    Nope, not full of himself, just intelligent enough to be down to earth and a model human being, whilst also being famous.

    People seem to think that famous people should be all head in the clouds and if they’re not, then they are all full of themselves.

    He really is one of the nicest guys.

    He’s also very humble.

    So, no.

    Don’t talk about stuff you don’t know.

  • mabh94

    Well, he’s telling the truth.

    He was careful, thought it was appropriate and answered the question.

    Not hard to understand.

  • mabh94

    Jared has nothing like a big mouth, if you knew anything about him you’d know what nonsense you’re speaking.

    Stop slandering people you don’t know.

    *awful

  • getoffmylawn

    so you know him personally, do you? i’ll talk about whatever I want whenever I want. Leto’s a stuck up overrated not good looking actor and he dresses like a clown.

    Troll detected.

  • getoffmylawn

    You’re the troll.

  • mabh94

    You’re criticising someone you’ve never met, and have no actual knowledge of, but I’m the troll?

    You only have to watch even an INCH of his documentary, let alone follow him and his band for the last 7 years like I have to understand who he is as a person.

    It’s literally all there in the open.

    Go out there and have a look for yourself, before you try to discredit one of the few actual HUMAN humans this planet has left.
