With all the stunts stars pull these days, it's rare that something really surprises us. Though, the latest cover of Candy magazine may shock you. It features a very popular, very gorgeous actor sporting a pink bob and full drag. I bet you don't even recognize him, do you? I certainly didn't. But the man behind the makeup is ...
... Jared Leto.
You read that right, '90s heartthrob Jared Leto. As soon as I realized who it was, all I could think was, "What the hell happened to Jordan Catalano?" We swooned right along with the moody, stylistically misguided Angela Chase on the cult television hit My So-Called Life. In a word, Jordan was gorgeous. Not in that Saved By the Bell-pretty boy-Zack Morris kind of way. He was the surly, misunderstood hot rocker. Who wouldn't fall for that?
In the years since he played a key figure in our adolescent fantasies, Jared has changed a bit. Now frontman for the rock band 30 Seconds to Mars, he has rocked all kinds of looks. Spiky mullets, mesh tops, he even shaved his eyebrows. Usually you can still see glimpses of the heartthrob still peeking through. But this time -- with those shiny, fire engine red lips, monster eyelash extensions, pink cropped 'do, and pink blouse -- I had no idea who it was. I thought it was some cute, young ingenue.
The reason for the attire? Not clear. But this isn't the first time he's worn full drag. Diehard fans will remember his role in Dallas Buyers Club. He actually looks quite cute on this cover.
What do you think of Jared's look?
