Oh my GAWWWWWD, he’s so fucking cool. He’s like that friend of your older brother that you always crushed on and followed around hoping he’d pay attention to you. If you have any lingering ideas that Jared Leto is just a pretentious douche, watch this and dispense with them POST-HASTE, SIR.

Breathing, singing Keane painting Jared Leto just won Best Supporting Actor from the New York Film Critics Circle for his transcendent work in Dallas Buyers Club, making him a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination (not that it wasn’t already a forgone conclusion). Just recently he told Rolling Stone magazine that awards mean little to him, saying “I never got an award that made me feel better about myself.” We’ll see if he still feels that way at the Vanity Fair post-party. Of course, Lainey Gossip points out that Jonah Hill is ALSO a huge contender this year in the Best Supporting catagory. “The Wolf Of Wall Street is just beginning to screen and so far the reception from the guilds has been strong. It’s Martin Scorsese, it’s Leonardo DiCaprio, it’s a studio picture, and these are some power players who will be pushing… Jonah Hill. You remember how badly Jonah wanted it for Moneyball? You remember how disappointed he was when Christopher Plummer won? It must just end up being Jonah Hill vs Jared Leto.” What do you think? Jared or Jonah? (Photo: Pacific Coast News)
Somebody needs to grab Matthew McConaughey by the scruff of his neck and tell him to JUST STOP IT. Right now. This isn’t healthy. No Academy Award is worth the damage he is doing to his liver with this extreme weight loss. Has he never heard the story of Dustin Hoffman on the set of Marathon Man? How he decided to stay up for three nights so he could look appropriately ravaged for a scene? When he came to the set, his co-star Laurence Olivier asked him why he looked so tired?. Dustin told him he’d stayed up for three days and nights. Olivier paused for a moment, then said ”Dear boy, it’s called ACTING.” Matthew McConaughey could stand to learn that lesson. This isn’t a snuff film. You don’t REALLY HAVE TO DIE for your art. Try ACTING instead. Anyway, here he is looking creepy on the set of the upcoming movie, Dallas Buyers Club. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Still shooting scenes in New Orleans for The Dallas Buyers Club, bone-thin Matthew McConaughey’s character spent the day smoking and coughing up blood into a handkerchief. The movie is based on the true story of Ron Woodroof, an electrician diagnosed with AIDS in 1986 and given six months to live. We hope McConaughey survives the filming.
