Jared Leto Doesn't Think Gay Men Have Same Opportunites as Straight Men in Hollywood

Jared Leto steps out of his hotel on Thursday night (August 4) in London, England.

The 44-year-old Oscar-winning actor was joined by his Suicide Squad co-star Will Smith. They reportedly attended a private screening of the film that night.

In his new interview with GQ Style, Jared opened up about his thoughts on the opportunities that gay men have in Hollywood.

“I definitely don’t think a gay leading man would have the same opportunities as a straight leading man,” Jared said. “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.”

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.”

Jared Leto Explains Why He Sent Weird Gifts to 'Suicide Squad' Cast

Jared Leto hits the red carpet at the premiere of his new movie Suicide Squad on Monday night (August 1) at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.

Before the premiere, the 44-year-old Oscar-winning actor taped an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, set to air later in the night.

Jared recently explained why he sent weird gifts to the cast of the movie during filming.

“It was interesting to do, because The Joker loves to play games, he loves to manipulate, and that was part of the reason to do that. When you do give a gift to someone, even in real life, you think about, ‘What do I get them?,’ you think about who that person is to you, what would they like?” Jared told Fox 5 DC. “So that immediately started to be really good homework for me. What do I give Deadshot? What’s my relationship with Deadshot? I gave Deadshot a briefcase full of bullets. It was kind of a message, it was kind of a threat, it was kind of a reminder. I wrote every character a note — a poem. What it did was that it started me on a journey into thinking what these people are, and it was a lot of fun.”

FYI: Jared is wearing head-to-toe Gucci at the premiere.
