CRUSH: Jared Leto - The Guardian Q&A

Stephen Hawking, Cocaine, Computer Chips and Karaoke... the Life of Leto.

Since seeing 30 Seconds to Mars (Leto is the front man) amazing concert on Friday night at Cardiff's International Arena, I've been a typical girl and been 'obsessing' about Jared Leto all day (though my love for Leto has been around for at least 3 years). So I decided to create a 'Crush' column and post about people I love (aka have crushed on) haha. I was browsing through his blog: and came across this Q&A style interview with Leto from The Guardian (source) from Dec 2009. Though it may be fairly old, this made my day. He's so awesome, would love to meet him one day!
