Jared Leto: My Oscar Is 'A Filthy Mess'
Jared Leto says his Oscar statuette is "a filthy mess" as he has been passing it around at parties.
The actor-musician took home the gold statuette last month for his supporting role as transgender drug addict Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club.
But he says it has sustained a few scrapes since then after circulating among friends.
"I damaged it. But then I came home and saw it had another nick on it. So it looks like someone else had fun with it too," Leto said.
"My Oscar is a filthy mess. Everybody was pawing that thing. I kind of was just passing it around at parties."
"A couple of times I lost sight of it and I thought, 'You know, if it goes away, it's not meant to be mine.' But it always seemed to find its way back to me."
The 42-year-old said the Oscar led to new possibilities.
"I'm looking at scripts and reading scripts. Which is interesting because I didn't read scripts for years before Dallas Buyers Club," he said.
