Jared Leto Returned To Acting In “Dallas Buyers Club” To Honor A Friend Who Died Of AIDS

LETOI watched week after week as he withered away, got sicker and sicker, sores on his body, his neck, and face. We would sometimes walk and get lunch, or walk to the store. He had a lot of dignity and humor and levity in his situation, so I think there are parts of him in this character as well. I think for people that haven’t been around or had an experience with someone who had been affected by this disease, it’s an easy thing to forget about right now, but I felt an obligation to bring as much grace and humanity to the role as possible.”

— Jared Leto speaking with Entertainment Weekly about a gay neighbor he had when he moved to L.A. in his 20s

      Thank you Jared Leto for not forgetting those who have died before us & for assisting in the fight against AIDS. Bravo! And if you have a moment, check out what I’m doing in the fight against AIDS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qrr4_5jQoaM

      All my life I have heard that beauty is only skin deep. With some people, it’s on both the outside and the inside. Big fan here.
