Jared Leto Blinded Himself While Filming 'Blade Runner 2049'

Jared Leto goes to some pretty extreme lengths for a movie role!

It was just revealed that the 45-year-old actor blinded himself for a method acting exercise while filming Blade Runner 2049.

“We all heard stories about Jared, how he transforms into the characters, but even this didn’t prepare me for what was to come. He entered the room, and he could not see at all. He was walking with an assistant, very slowly,” director Denis Villeneuve told the WSJ.

He explained that Jared remained blind for the entire shoot, using a set of custom made contact lenses that turned his eyes totally opaque.

Jared added, “I didn’t dive as deep down the rabbit hole as maybe I’ve done before, but I stayed really focused. I’m crazy, but I’m not insane.”

Pictured inside: Jared meeting fans outside of BBC Broadcasting House on Thursday (September 7) in London, England and returning to New York City the following day.

Jared Leto Flaunts His Abs in Neon Pants for 'WSJ' Magazine

Jared Leto is showing off his killer abs in the September issue of WSJ. Magazine!

The 45-year-old Oscar-winning actor and Thirty Seconds to Mars rocker opened up about his style, Blade Runner 2049, and future acting roles.

On the type of actor he is: “I might not be at the top of the list for, like, a funny dude. But if someone is dying or suffering greatly, I’ll get a call. I got calls about [playing] Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, David Koresh and Jim Jones, all within two weeks. I’m not doing them, but I thought for a second, ‘Oh, my God, I should do them all.’ Just put them together like a Criterion Collection box set. And then retire.”

On his bold style: “There was a period a decade ago when I wore Hare Krishna clothes. When I was younger I was like, ‘Give me something black.’ But now I love color. You know how you see old guys wearing loud Hawaiian shirts? If I walk off the bus, and the crew starts laughing, I know I put the right thing on.”

On Blade Runner 2049: “I didn’t dive as deep down the rabbit hole as maybe I’ve done before, but I stayed really focused. I’m crazy, but I’m not insane.”

Jared Leto, Hailee Steinfeld, Pharrell & More Cover 'W' Mag!

Jared Leto, Pharrell Williams, Hailee Steinfeld, and Tracee Ellis Ross are on the covers of W magazine’s October 2017 issues.

This month, W featured so much talent, including Tilda Swinton, James Corden, Winona Ryder, and Saoirse Ronan, Amandla Sternberg, and Adwoa Aboah. Here’s what they shared with the mag…

Hailee, on her version of royalty: “To me, Paula Abdul is royalty. I just saw her live, and the whole time I was watching her, I was hitting the person next to me and saying, ‘Oh. My. God. Yes!’ I’m late to the game, but Paula Abdul is completely amazing.”

Jared, on karaoke: “I don’t f*ck with karaoke. I tried it once, and it was the biggest disaster. The song I bombed on was ‘Eye of the Tiger.’ It was at a wedding, in front of hundreds of people. The only line of the song that I knew was “eye of the tiger,” so I just mumbled, and it was awful. Deep shame. Now I stick to singing my own songs onstage with my band, Thirty Seconds to Mars. There are some things you just know you’re not good at.”

Jared Leto on Upcoming Joker Movies: 'I'm a Little Confused'

Jared Leto poses for a photo during the 2017 Universal Inside at the Mercedes-Benz Arena on Wednesday (September 6) in Berlin, Germany.

Recently, the 45-year-old actor and entertainer spoke about DC Entertainment’s plan for his Suicide Squad character, The Joker after news was revealed that he’ll star in a new Joker movie as well as news that there’s an origin film in the works.

“I’m a little confused, too,” Jared told THR. “I love the Joker. He’s a great character and really fun character to play. But it’s a big universe and when you play the Joker, there’s no ownership there. You have the honor of holding the baton for a little while and then passing it off. There are other films that are in development and I’m excited to see what comes from them.”
