Jared Leto Thinks Jennifer Lawrence's Oscars Falling Streak is 'A Bit of an Act'

By Agent Bedhead | Pajiba Love | March 7, 2014 | Comments ()


Lily Allen says there’s no reason for feminism to exist anymore. Everyone is equal, yo. Men are not the enemies; women are clearly the problem. Sigh. I don’t even know where to begin. (Jezebel)

Some self-righteous Christians are all upset that Matthew McConaughey thanked God while accepting an award for a movie filled with nudity, sex, and prostitution. They’re also pulling the Magic Mike card. (Film Drunk)

Cobie Smulders had a very long, awkward sex scene in a 2005, straight-to-DVD movie. Dustin uncovered it for your viewing (non-)pleasure. (WG)

Michael Jackson’s secret son, Brandon Howard, held a press conference yesterday to introduce himself to the world. (DListed)

Jennifer Lawrence is so blazingly happy that she lost the race for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars. She is “very aware of the backlash” and danger of becoming the next Anne Hathaway. JLaw is right. She would have never recovered. (CB)

Jared Leto reminds us all why we once thought he was a total douche. He thinks Jennifer totally faked falling at the Oscars both times. He also admits to heckling her from the audience while she presented the Best Actor award. Nice manners, babe. (Us)

Does the world really need a gritty, Dark Knight-esque Zorro reboot? (Slashfilm)

Miss Piggy’s face in the classic Pulp Fiction Uma poster: Creepy. (TMS)

Wes Anderson built The Grand Budapest Hotel with many quirky considerations. Fans will enjoy this in-depth look at the process. (FSR)

The Independent Spirit Awards were a buffet of bad fashion. Jon Hamm and his Don Draper suit were not impressed. (GFY)

An obsessive artist spent 5 months creating a Breaking Bad poster for every single episode. (Unreality)

The most common dreams are explained in this article. I have the test-taking dream all the time. Do people really dream about showing up to work naked? I don’t, but that’s one of the few perks of working at home. (Mental Floss)

Forget about Barbie? Here’s a doll based upon real human females. (Kotaku)

Cancer f—-ing sucks. Cancer is an a-hole. Some of the most truly awesome people we know have been affected by this f—er, and it is just the worst. However, there is one simple thing you can do to fight cancer. You can visit the Cannonball Read group blog. Just visiting the website, or (gasp!) clicking on an ad there, not to mention buying something from one of the amazon.com links generates revenue. 100% of all of those proceeds are donated to the American Cancer Society in the late, great AlabamaPink’s name. It might just be drops in the bucket, but all you Pajibans could add up to a tidal wave. Go check it out. You might even find a good book to read! (Cannonball Read 6)

The new trailer for Sin City: A Dame To Kill For features Joseph Gordon Levitt being amazing and Eva Green acting as very alluring box-office poison. It also features Jessica Alba pretending to be a stripper while somehow staying fully clothed.

Bedhead lives in Tulsa. She can be found at Celebitchy.com.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Nadiney

    Uuuuuuuugh, damn it. Why did it have to be Leto?
    I don't know if her falling was an act, I know that I am long past any hope of ever liking her and this 'SHE'S SO REAL JUST LIKE US' thing with her bugs the fuck out of me.
    But I hate Jared Leto SO VERY much that I'm almost inclined to defend her just out of hatred for him.
    I won't. He's still the tooliest tool that was ever a tool.
    But I just can't with J-Law. LEARN 2 RED CARPET, JENNIFER.

  • - As always with Jezebel, the comments are waaay more entertaining than whatever the article might be about.

    -As someone who believes in God like fish believe in water, I'm always happy to see someone thank Him for the talents they have. People need to take a step back and remember that just because someone isn't doing it your way, it doesn't necessarily mean they're doing it wrong.

    -"Does the world really need a gritty, Dark Knight-esque Zorro reboot?" How is this even a question? Of course it does. Well, I don't know about 'gritty' so much, but in terms of Dark Knight-esque quality, yes it does. Also, another 'The Shadow' movie wouldn't hurt. Hell, you gave fuckin' Ant-Man a movie, you can do The Shadow.

  • Arran

    I'll have you know that I've never stopped thinking Jared Leto was a douche.

  • Jezzer

    So much this.

  • Coolg82

    I feel that the whole point of saying that Jennifer Lawrence fears becoming the next Anne Hathaway is less of a comment on Jennifer Lawrence and more of stealth dig at Anne Hathaway. I also feel the falling and the awkwardness is a bit of an act. The first time falling at the Oscars, yes, probably an accident. The second time? Doubtful, as most people try not to spectacle themselves at massively public events unless of course it helps their image.

  • googergieger

    Remind me again when criticizing women became being misogynistic/sexist? Cause I mean feminist movement pretty much means equality right? Nothing more equal than calling women that act like dicks, dicks. Same as you would a man. I didn't read that Allen thing, I'm just speaking general. Again my Skylar hate for the same reason I hated Walt turning into me hating women and only women, and letting men off the hook because I didn't.

  • ellie

    Your comment has nothing to do with the Allen thing. She basically just says she thinks women are apparently already equal to men, and men aren't the ones holding us back, women are.

  • googergieger

    "I didn't read that Allen thing, I'm just speaking general."

  • ellie

    Weird that you decided to go off on that tangent when that issue is literally nowhere near this story at all.. Although you seem to have a thing for complaining on pajiba, whether it relevant or not.

  • googergieger

    You didn't really read my original comment, then upon being shown you didn't really read it, you decide to give me a nonreply while also attempting to insult me? Alright.

    Pajiba love is more or less about the random. One of the links was about feminism. In general, I feel a lot of people miss the point about what it is about. Said as much. Three times in fact. Oh wells.

  • ellie

    Yep and I'll say it again: your point was seriously irrelevant. I just don't see why you'd want to start a discussion about something that obviously bothers you, when we were all fine being bothered by something Lily Allen had said first, something clearly different from your comment (which you'd have known if you read the damn article in the first place).

  • googergieger

    Say it again? Well your original reply basically showed you didn't read what you were replying to. Reply after that didn't even acknowledge that. Just tried to insult me while repeating what I said.

    This is pajiba love. Random shit thread/article...

    Well again, this could be the fourth time I say something, and after your original nonreply being pointed out as being just that, you'll seem happy just repeating what I'm repeating. Except with some hate attached to it. Well have at it, sport. Apparently the guy called a troll not only decided to not stoop down to your level with the insults, but also decided to walk away from this....I don't know. Boring thing? Shrug.

  • melissa82

    They finish his quote with "Leto, 42, joked" -- so I'm pretty sure he was…joking. I wonder how celebrity feuds start these days….I think I have an idea...

  • e jerry powell

    I'm still trying to find that video on Kotaku of that girl smashing bricks with her head for no particular reason.

    Oh, and the world does not need reboots of anything, ever. The world needs film executives who are not content to rework overwarmed concepts as tentpole projects, but of course, that's too much to ask of film industry MBA suits.

  • kinoumenthe

    There you go, but on The Mary Sue.
    The making of is pretty interesting too.

  • e jerry powell


  • kinoumenthe


  • Alicja Gadecka

    Well, I share Jared's thoughts. I think that the fall might have been acted out. And Jennifer talked with some girl during Matthew speech...manners right? I don't get this fascination with her...

  • chanohack

    I believe said "girl" was actually Leto.

  • bleujayone

    No, no, no. One thing Zorro does not need is to be gritty. Zorro has always been a heroic swashbuckler with a heavy side of humor. That's always been the Fox's modus operandi. He's always been constant with the smiles, the laughter in the face of danger, the witty repertoire in the middle of the fights and even a bit of slapstick at his opponents' expense. Despite him being young Bruce Wayne's (and largely creator Bob Kane's) visual inspiration, none of those qualities ever transferred over to the Dark Knight. Zorro might wear black, but he's not trying to be a monster. He might brandish a sword and know how to wield it, but he isn't a killer. He might be a legend, but fear was never his ally- rather he was a shadowy gentleman of the people.

    I want Zorro to be happy. Whether it was Douglas Fairbanks, Tyrone Power, Guy Williams, Anthony Hopkins or Antonio Banderas, he was always a proud and jovial hero. Even when Zorro was looking for vengeance, he never showed it overtaking his persona. Batman, on the other hand, is rage personified. He's always looking for both revenge for his personal injustice and angry that such things continued. In a way, Batman's partner Robin/Nightwing is far more like Zorro than Batman ever was. He always cracks wise, he's the one who flashed the smile, and he would make fools of the villains- every bit Diego Del La Vega.

    Just give me a well put together story that treats both the story of Zorro and respects the character's legacy and you'll likely have a winner. Take your grit and angst and bury them. That's not what ever made the character fun and grafting onto him now won't do it either. If those in charge cannot remain true to the spirit of the character then they are very much likely going to have a well-deserved turkey on their hands. If they need further proof of that, they need only look towards another beloved Western hero who recently got a cinematic reboot and had hopes for sequels that will now never come to pass- Hi Ho Silver, Away!

  • Some Guy

    I find it curious that George Hamilton was neglected from your list of Zorro's...

  • sherryb23

    George Hamilton was the BEST Zorro. I'm always so saddened that so many people never saw that movie. It was divine.

  • bleujayone

    Technically, I also forgot Henry Darrow from Filmation's animated Zorro adventures too.

  • BWeaves

    I have the "showing up naked" dream all the time. The most disturbing part, is that nobody else seems to notice or care that I'm naked.

    I've also noticed that when I dream, I dream without my glasses on, so everything is out of focus. Inevitably, I have to take a test, or find a room number, or something, and I can't find my glasses in my dream.

    However, if I fall asleep with my glasses on, my dreams are in focus, even though I'm not wearing glasses in my dream. I know this from falling asleep in my recliner when reading. Somehow, my brain associates the pressure from my glasses on my nose and behind my ears with seeing clearly.

  • chanohack

    That's really fascinating about your glasses… however, god dammit, if I start having dreams "without" my glasses in which I can't see, which would be terrifying by definition, I will never forgive you for putting this idea in my head!

  • becks2point0

    I would really appreciate it if you could try to dream me into the ones without your glasses, crying and saying "Where are her glasses? She can't see without her glasses!"

  • Berry

    Too soon!

  • Berry

    In my "showing up naked" dreams I'm not usually fully naked, just sans shirt or pants. But nobody notices that either. It's always weird and disconcerting.

  • Salieri2

    That's me too. The awkwardness always springs from a combination of how odd it is that none of my co-workers seem to notice or care, and how embarrassing it is to me that I somehow keep doing this. Apparently, not only do I show up naked to work a lot in my dreams, I remember and maintain a timeline of doing so. I have a whole alternate history, and it is pantsless.

  • becks2point0

    Have you ever thought you dream in some sort of Parallel Disney Universe?

  • Berry

    Speaking of Chandler...
    "Donald Duck never wore pants. But whenever he's getting out of the shower, he always put a towel around his waist. I mean, what's that about?"

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Eh. I hope the Zorro isn't going to be based on Allende's novel. It was so disappointing I didn't even pass on to my swashbuckling sister to read.

    The God lady is being tongue in cheek when she uses the phrase "our next great Christian idol," right? please, right?

  • Littlejon2001

    Oh I'm sorry. Is Pajiba a gossip website now? Is this a website for trolling?

    ""You know, I'm starting to wonder if this is a bit of an act," Leto, 42, joked.

    How does a joke go to Jared Leto Thinks...Seriously Pajiba. Behave yourself.

  • mzblackwidow

    should I worry that I understood exactly what you meant? You aren't an Aussie by any chance? :)
    I believe that 1: Leto was joking 2:Jennifer Lawrence fans make Loki fans seem calm and logical 3: Lawrence fell on purpose (at least) this year. UNless she spends alot of time falling over the rest of the year and it never gets reported, I refuse to believe a healthy young woman "falls" - with perfect timing for maximum attention - at the same event 2 years running. It's ridiculous. It also plays into the "genuine real JL, just one of us, clumsy and blunt and soooo sweet".

  • Berry

    "How does a joke go to Jared Leto Thinks"

    It really disturbs me that I can't understand this sentence at all.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Oh thank god, I thought I was having a stroke. I re-read that three times to be sure.

  • Berry

    Would you happen to remember a character who styled himself Adventureman and wrote complete nonsense on Pajiba a few years ago? A mere humble lurker here at the time, I was going trough a pretty bad period of insomnia, when one night after weeks of trying to survive on two hours or less a night I happened to read something by said Adventureman. And maybe you know how sometimes sleep deprivation can make the edges of reality blur a little. You don't always know whether you're awake or not? Adventureman's ramblings had me questioning my sanity for a few minutes. I thought I had lost my ability to understand language and to read English for sure. Then I scrolled down and found out that no-one else could understand him either and that calmed me down.

    This has been a trip down the memory lane.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I'm sorry about the insomnia, that just plain sucks.
    This just got to me because the rest of the comment had understandable English and punctuation. Then all of a sudden the words didn't make sense.
    I had a mini freak out that I had lost the ability to read, because it's Friday, I'm highly dramatic and apparently living in a Hallmark Channel movie.

  • Littlejon2001


    What I meant was, how does a comment that was clearly labeled a joke become the source of a headline that reads "Jared Leto Thinks..."? In essence, the phrase "Leto joked" turned into "Leto thinks".

    I was just being lazy. You know...like Pajiba was being when they made that headline.


    (Did I win you back???)

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I don't know...your word sorcery had me questioning my literacy.

  • Littlejon2001

    I'm taking that as a compliment.

  • Laszlo

    So wait, is Lily Allen trying to illustrate her point by saying "see, women are so competitive, they think skinny women are out to get them", or is she genuinely saying skinny women are out to get her?

  • e jerry powell

    Lily Allen has clearly become besties with Phyllis Schlafly.

    That is a truly frightening thought that just came out of my brain.

  • oilybohunk7

    One of our local radio stations used to have this DJ who LOOOOVEEED Jared Leto, or Jordan Catalano, if you will. One day she finally got to meet him, from that point forward she did nothing but shit talk him. Apparently, he wasn't very nice.

  • chanohack

    That happened with my sister and Val Kilmer (or Batman, if you wish).

  • oilybohunk7

    Oh man, I loved Val circa Batman Forever and then he morphed into Steven Seagal.

  • Salieri2

    I really did like "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang."

  • becks2point0

    On one of those sites where people share experiences about meeting famous people I read a long thread of people talking about what an alcoholic asshole Dan Akroyd is in real life.

    That was a dark day.

  • oilybohunk7

    That is depressing.

  • Jared Leto's competent acting is a bit of an act.

  • becks2point0

    Jared Leto's performance in Dallas Buyer's Club was as good or better than anything Jennifer Lawrence has done so far though Lawrence is much more likeable in real life.

    The cult of JLaw needs to take it down a notch though since Leto was only making a good natured joke.

  • I was just making a Standard Internet Joke.

    He was fine in Dallas Buyers Club, although I'm not sure I'd have voted for him in that category.

  • becks2point0

    It was a pretty good category this year. It was between Leto and Hill for me but I'd have gone for Leto.

  • chanohack

    As president of the Cult of JLaw (I GOT UP AT SIX TO GO BUY CATCHING FIRE THIS MORNING [AND TOOK PICTURES]), please consider anyone lashing out against Leto to be the uninformed equivalent of Westboro Baptist Church. The two are clearly friends, and he was clearly joking.

  • AvaLehra

    Also, I applaud your purchase as I am buying mine on the way home from work.

  • AvaLehra


  • becks2point0

    Exactly. Also, hasn't every person who has talked about Jennifer since the Oscars this year made the exact same joke about her faking her falls? Either that or made a joke about her needing help walking, like Ellen.

    I mean, the woman did have two public falls at the Oscars.

  • Davis

    Exactly anyone with any bad to say get bitched out and called a douche or a basement dweller if they don't love the humble jennifer lawrence.

    Also laughing at a joke isn't heckling, it's laughing at a joke.

  • becks2point0

    People do seem to love them some Jennifer Lawrence (me included) but I don't see why criticizing her is a big deal if it's warranted. In this case though, Leto wasn't even doing that.

  • Davis

    She eats and she doesn't like to exercise, obviously she's perfect.

  • becks2point0

    I can't tell if you're a real person or the personification of an equal and opposite reaction to Jennifer Lawrence.

    We get it, Newton! You don't have to piggyback on Lawrence's fame to bring your third law into the public consciousness again.

    (In case my tone isn't obvious I want to add that were this reported in US it would read "becks joked..." and were it reported on Pajiba it would read "that monster becks unscrupulously attacks Davis by saying...")

  • chanohack

    Jared Leto was totally kidding when he said that.

  • AvaLehra


  • BWeaves

    A sarcasm font is needed. Why does one not exist?

  • Lloyd_The_Bartender

    oh yeah? well Jared Leto is a smarmy little bitch who needs to stop talking smack about my girlfriend.
    30 Seconds To Mars?
    how 'bout 30 Seconds Till I Beat Yo Skinny Lil' Ass Son !

    ...i'm sort of kidding ... i had a lot of coffee this morning...

  • Tinkerville

    Every time I make payment to something that isn't student loans, I first feel panicked and check the bank account, and then I feel a great sense of vengeance. What I'm saying is now I know that every time I buy something from that Cannonball link, it goes to a good cause AND a student loan gets punched in the face. Brb, doing that now.

  • Samantha Klein

    ...And I just now, this instant, became a fan of Jared Leto. Thank you, sir.

  • Berry

    "We hit it off over a mutual respect for Chandler Bing, and we've been eating pizza together ever since."

    Could I BE anymore in love with these people?

  • Mrs. Julien

    I looked at the Muppet movie parody posters link and this is what I know:

    I need this now. I need it in a frame. I need it prominently displayed in my home.

  • e jerry powell

    But you have it prominently displayed as your avatar...

  • Mrs. Julien

    But what about, and I assure it does indeed happen, when I am offline?

  • e jerry powell

    You're lying; that never happens.

  • Mrs. Julien

    It totally does. WATCH THIS!

  • e jerry powell

    I can still see you sitting there.

  • Lauren_Lauren

    I would say sprinting across a theatre to shoehorn yourself into a group photo with people above your celebrity ranking is definitely "a bit of an act".

  • L.O.V.E.

    Yes, he clearly did not have enough MeowMeowBeenz to stand next to Jennifer Lawrence.

  • Lauren_Lauren

    You just earned 5 beans. :D

  • LwoodPDowd

    I didn't watch the show, just the clip of the selfie being taken. I
    didn't know that was Jared Leto, I thought it was Jim Carrey with long

  • becks2point0

    I thought that was weird and a bit desperate too. It flies in the face of my preconceived notions of JLaw so I choose to never think of it again.

    Leto is clearly kidding in a friendly way in that article though. Even the article mentions that so I don't understand why Bedhead is insinuating he's an ass.

  • chanohack

    … I think she was talking about Jared sprinting across the theater. Jen was sitting right there, but Jared came all the way from the other section.

  • becks2point0

    Oh, I found Jenn did a sprint so that was what my BF and I were joking about at the time. I didn't even realize Leto did the same sprint but didn't make it. The best member of that photo was the very prominent brother of Lupita Nyong'o, who no one could identify the next day. He didn't even look nervous.

  • Lauren_Lauren

    Jared ran from the far left side of the theatre, it was a bit riddic. JLaw was photo-adjacent.

  • becks2point0

    Ah, I see. I thought Jennifer was a little desperate and I remember how much farther Leto was so that's definitely a bit "Look at me!"

    I find almost all actors and actresses that way though so I don't mind. I even love Anne Hathaway!
