Jared Leto Has Already Damaged His Oscar

It was a tough debate on who was more attractive: Jared Leto — whom Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres dubbed “the prettiest person in the room” — or his new Oscar statue. But, after a freak accident, the luster is slightly off Leto’s new golden guy.

“True story: I was letting some of the people that I work with take a picture with the Oscar, and I was carrying downstairs and boom — I hit the railing on the stairs and I put a little nick in the back of it,” Leto told Entertainment Tonight Canada.

Instead of putting the highly coveted prize out of the way, the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman decided to keep it where he knew it would be “safest.”

“The Oscar is sitting in my kitchen, guarded by some vegan butter and a bag of popcorn,” Leto said in the interview.

    To be fair, it is a very safe place. Nobody is going to go anywhere near vegan butter! :-)

  3. Glenn C. says:

    It’s a fact that if he brings back the Oscar to the Academy they will have it fixed for him. No big deal.

  4. Erica Beumel says:

    Lol. Vegan butter and a bag of popcorn.

  5. chris says:

    get it replaced

  6. Why do you care what kind of butter he uses?

  7. Hunter says:

    In his kitchen… awesome!

  8. Toon says:

    Vegan butter, very cool. Good to know he’s aware.

  9. Really? He had to outline the fact that it was VEGAN butter….you could have just said butter dude, but now you look like a hipster douche. Although the hair and the outfit kind of led us all to that conclusion in the first place.

      Insulting a person because of their choice of butter, clothes and hairstyle? Don’t look now James but it seems YOU are the hipster douche.

      Really? You had to take offence at an innocent mans choice of butter? You could have just let it go dude, but now you just look like an insecure A-hoel who has to go around criticising other peoples lifestyle choices.
      Although just the fact that your avatar is a picture of yourself together with two women kind of led us all to that conclusion in the first place.

      James, shut up. After the outstanding performance Jared gave us in DALLAS BUYERS CLUB, he can do what he bloody well wants to do! Butter included!
