Details Magazine - March 1997
Live fast, die young. After nineteen episodes,
ABC pulled the plug on My So-Called Life, but Jared Leto
emerged a TV star. Now he graduates to the big screen short but brilliant life.
Jared Leto died suddenly last year. The reports of his demise,
which eventually surfaced on the Internet, were greatly
exaggerated: Most said it was a drug overdose,
others said it was a car wreck, a few said it was AIDS.
He was filming a movie in Ireland, where his role on the
short-lived TV series My So-Called Life had made him
popular, when the news arrived. “Kids would come up to me
all day long saying, ‘Oh my God, we had a funeral for you,
we heard you were dead.’” Such is the price of teen-idol fame.
And don’t forget the extra service charge:
“You know you’re really famous when there’s rumors
about you being gay.” Very much alive and so not-gay,
Leto takes it all in stride. It’s the third bit of gossip
that really puzzles him: “All those reports that I sleep
in my closet. I don’t know how people get that. People
are so obsessed with what you do at home.”
Anonymous asked: Hey! UK Echelon here, we must be way behind with the news, what's all this about Jared having photos removed off of the Internet?? Great blog btw! :) xx
Hello lovely UK Echelon!!!
I want to wrap this whole picture removing thing up. I created the post as I saw so many others complaining about getting random posts removed; but now I see a couple of people on twitter moaning about people “picking on Jared”. I swear to god, some people would defend Jared whatever he did. People need to accept that being famous isn’t all a shit load of money, freebies and fucking hot people; they’re are downsides.
Anyhoooo… these posts should sum it all up:
