Jared Leto has always been slim, but he’s lost even more weight to play a gay man with AIDS in The Dallas Buyer’s Club, and to get the cross-dressing part of his role right, he’s also shaved off his eyebrows.
Now cross that with Terry Richardson, a photographer renowned for taking pics of celebs that make you look twice as they don’t quite look like they do under anyone else’s lens.
Richardson has posted a series of recent shots of Leto, showing him in super-skinny, eyebrow-free mode, and to be honest he looks pretty scary. You could plonk him in a horror movie like that and he could be the psycho villain without any make-up – although that said, he does look pretty sexy in the pic below where he’s wearing glasses.
Dallas Buyer’s Club is based on the true story movie of Ron Woodruff (McConaughey), a man who contracts AIDS in 1986. When he’s given just six months to live, he becomes frustrated with the lack of medical options in the US, due to the fact drugs have to be extensively tested by the FDA before they become available to patients, he begins smuggling alternative drugs into the country from Mexico. Jared Leto will portray Rayon, a gay, cross-dressing AIDS patient Woodruff befriends at the hospital.
