Less than a week after winning his first Golden Globe, Jared Leto woke up to the news that he had been nominated for Hollywood’s most prestigious award. The “Dallas Buyer’s Club” star will be attending the Academy Awards with the hope that he’ll snag that much coveted Oscar in the category of best supporting actor.
How does one celebrate such an achievement? For Leto, it’s all about the food. He told the Hollywood Reporter, “I’m going back to bed and then wake up and make vegan pancakes.”
Sounds like a plan to us. The longtime vegan, often swooned over for his handsome and youthful looks, actually credits his diet as one of the reasons he stays young. He told British GQ in March of last year, “It’s probably just down to sleep and diet. If you travel long haul a lot or don’t sleep much, it’s not going to last very long, that’s for sure. I’m pretty healthy so I think that helps a lot. I’ve been that way for a long time – 20 solid years of eating vegetarian/vegan and taking care of myself. That probably helps the preservation process.”
We’re glad the actor is back to eating normally now that his role as Rayon has been completed. Leto lost 30 to 40 pounds and waxed his body to best portray the character. We can’t wait until Oscar night to see if he wins! (Although, we would have been even more excited had Blackfish not been snubbed.)
