WATCH: Jared Leto Says His Oscar Has Been Missing For 3 Years
Jared Leto has recently revealed that his Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the 2013 movie Dallas Buyers Club has been missing for the last three years.
The award had gone AWOL for a while before he even realized it. “You know, I found out that it’s been missing for, like three years, and I didn’t know that… I don’t think anyone wanted to tell me,” Leto said during an episode of the Late Late Show with James Corden. “But I had moved houses in L.A. and then when we moved, it somehow just magically kind of disappeared.”
Leto reported that while it could be somewhere in his new home, he has been looking “high and low” for the Oscar, but that no one has been able to find it. Corden responded to the anecdote, saying, “Hang on, you really think somebody else has got it?” Leto responded, “I think it’s a possibility. It’s not the sort of thing someone accidentally throws in the trash. I hope someone is caring for it.”
Leto went on to reminisce about the night he received the award. “I remember the night I got it, I passed it around to so many people,” he said. “I didn’t see it half the night, but [the] thing’s beat up, scratched up, but people had fun taking pictures with it, and it’s nice to share it. So hopefully someone’s taking good care of it.”
Leto’s most recent work The Little Things came out on January 29, making its debut in only 2,171 theaters in North America, as well as on HBO Max. The Little Things only grossed about $4.8 million. The film will continue to be available in select theaters and also to subscribers on HBO Max until March 1. Check out the trailer below.
