During his call, Jared Leto spoke about never watching his own work, and admitted he has yet to see his performance in Dallas Buyers Club, which won him an Oscar.

“I have seen my work quite a bit when I am in like a music video, which I usually direct music videos. And it’s funny because I just, it doesn’t, I guess, because I’m playing myself in the videos as well, maybe it’s different, but it I’ve always found it to be less stressful. And just a more enjoyable experience if I don’t look at the monitor, if I’m not kind of criticizing myself along the way, even if it’s in a constructive way or directing myself. I feel like I’ve done my best work when I’m just not thinking about the character from that point of view, from the outside in. I’ve done it on a couple of movies where I’ve looked at the monitor, I thought, well, maybe I can learn a lot here,” he said.

“In Dallas Buyers Club, I never, I never saw myself once in it, certainly didn’t get in the way of the, I still haven’t seen that performance and it didn’t get into the way of how it affects the audience. And I think that’s the most important thing. Like I want to be free and not be kind of hung up on how I look or how what’s effective and what’s not, and I always want to change as an actor, so I don’t want to learn what might work, what are the habits that work and what don’t. Also, who wants to look at themselves that much. I read the script, I know exactly what happened,” he explained.

If he had to watch one of his films, he said he would “probably pick either Fight Club or Requiem for a Dream because Requiem was one of the few films I already watched.”

Jared recently revealed he almost signed this Grammy winner to a recording contract.
