The 2014 awards season treated Jared Leto pretty, pretty well — lauding him left and right for his turn in “Dallas Buyers Club,” culminating in a Best Supporting Actor win at the 86th Academy Awards on Sunday (March 2). But it turns out the relationship between actor and season was more than a bit reciprocal.
All winter long, Leto’s proven to be a charming cut-up out on the red carpet, never passing up an opportunity to crash someone else’s interview and give fans (and some of the ladies he’s interrupting) something they weren’t expecting.
The fun all began back in January at the 2014 SAG Awards, when Leto worked his way into “Game of Thrones” beauty Emilia Clarke’s interview with E! News host Guiliana Rancic.
But that was nothing compared to what Leto had in store for the Oscars red carpet. While there, he flirted his way into June Squibb’s chat with Ryan Seacrest and photobombed a moment between Kevin Spacey and Nancy O’Dell.
His fun didn’t stop there, though. Later that night, at the Vanity Fair after party, Leto put his photobombing skills to further use as Anne Hathaway — who’d presented him with his Oscar earlier — was posing for the cameras.
The actor got a taste of his own medicine, however, backstage at the awards when he fell prey to a rather epic photobomb from Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyong’o. Classic.
