Jared Leto is an arrogant approach actors always go to unusual and uncomfortable heights to describe a particular role. In preparation for Requiem for a Dream, Leto lived on the street with a group of heroin addicts and went as far as shooting and water. He gained nearly 70 pounds to play Mark David Chapman Chapter 27, and after being cast as the Joker of Suicide Squad he tortured his fellow cast members by sending them live rats and bullets.
For his most recent role, Leto portrayed fashion designer and business magnate Paolo Gucci at Ridley Scott’s Home to Gucci. In an interview with iD, Leto details how he became character, including “lines to snort in arrabbiata sauce.”
“I did it all. I snort lines of arrabbiata sauce in the middle of this movie. I have olive oil for blood. It was a deep dive I did, ”Let explained. “If you get a biopsy of my skin, it comes back as parmesan cheese! This is my love letter to Italy.
“There was a lot of work and preparation, and yes, I had an Italian accent and I enjoyed and embraced that, and lived in that space as much as I could, and for as long as I could,” Leto added. “I climbed into that creative cave and came out through the intestines and intestines into the esophagus of the one and only Paolo Gucci.”
Unfortunately, Leto’s efforts did not translate the film well. In his review on Home to Gucci with consequences, Clint Worthington described it as “the most eye-catching bad performance of the year… With his crown of gray hair and long face (Leto’s tied matinee-idol face hidden under reams of unique prosthetics), Paolo cried and bowed. the Super Mario -like accent film that makes Borat the helium impression. ”
