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.
