Jared Leto is new to handling coveted trophies like the Oscar statue … judging from the way he damaged his Oscar statue barely two days after winning it.
The new Best Supporting Actor winner described how he damaged his Oscar statue during an ET Canada interview on Tuesday … and you won’t believe how he says he treats his trophies.
‘The Oscar is sitting in my kitchen, guarded by some vegan butter and a bag of popcorn!’ he said. ‘You know, they kind of end up in the kitchen because that’s the first place that I go when I get home. You put your keys down and you take off your jacket… and you put your Oscar in the kitchen.’
So how did it get damaged?
‘I was letting some of the people that I work with take a picture with the Oscar and I was carrying it down the stairs and, boom, I hit it against the stairs, the railing and I put a little nick in the back of it… so you know, that’s how it goes. It’s already lived in, as they say.’
Better be careful with the trophy dude, ‘cos many actors die without that honor.
Meanwhile Jared and his band Thirty Seconds To Mars have already announced a tour with Linkin Park and AFI, which began on Tuesday.
