Jared Leto Felt Like Destroying Something Beautiful. Well, Beautiful To Him
Leto is playing a cross-dresser with HIV, which also explains his lack of eyebrows. You need to be able to draw those bitches on without hair getting in your way. I fully expect Leto to follow up his weight gain for Chapter 27 (which Richardson also lovingly documented) and then his weight loss for this movie with a role where he goes full method with breast implants. It's all about the craft.
