Jared Leto: 'My Oscar is a filthy mess'
By RYAN PEARSON , AP Entertainment Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Jared Leto says that although his Oscar has led to new opportunities in Hollywood, he isn't overly concerned with the trophy itself.

The 42-year-old actor-musician took home the gold-plated statuette last month for his supporting role as transgender drug addict Rayon in "Dallas Buyers Club." It has sustained a few scrapes since then after circulating among friends.

Leto says his Oscar is "a filthy mess. Everybody was pawing that thing."

He is now promoting "Artifact," a documentary he directed about the battle that his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, had with its record label over its contract and a $30 million lawsuit. The film, available on iTunes, airs Saturday on VH1 and Palladia.

I think he is an amazing singer and actor. He deserved the award. I started following him on FB and my opinion has changed. He is an egotistical self absorbed douche. It doesn't surprise me that he would throw around that statue because he thinks he is too cool. I truly adored him and now he makes me want to vomit. I can name plenty or actors that are equal to him.

easy come, easy go, they give those things away like candy anymore... that completly degrades the achievment. gone are the days of the true icons of hollywood the gave their blood sweat and tears to their art, these kids today are wining for movie rolls that are so sad, their first time up, and there are long time screen stars that been in the field 25yrs and still don't have one... you tend to put the same amount of value on the award as the cost to aquire it.. "NOT Much"

You should respect and appreciate the institution that pays you and ALL other actors far too much for your services. I respect your talent, I am completely disgusted at your "I don't care "attitude.

I wonder how many Hollywood area pawn shops have had the statues on their shelves, after guys just like him get washed up and hock it for beer money...
