Forget Taylor, Miley, and Lupita -- Jared Leto only has eyes for one lady to be his date this Sunday night at the Academy Awards. The Oscar-nominated actor invited his mom Constance to be his plus one, and from the looks of things, she was thrilled to accept.
And with that, we 30-somethings are reduced to puddles of ooze reminiscent of the days of Jordan Catalano on My So-Called Life. Even more aww-inducing is his mom’s sweet reaction to his invitation.
Leto Instagrammed a screenshot of him and his older bro Shannon FaceTiming their mom, and he caught the moment he broke the news that he’d like her to attend with him.
He captioned it: “My mothers face when @shannonleto and I told her she was coming to the #Oscars with us! :)"

Constance is pictured with what can only be described as an expression of shocked joy, looking like she’s gasping but trying to grin at the same time. Pictured in the corner is Jared making a silly face, and Shannon looking somewhat stoic with a raised eyebrow.
Jared is nominated for best supporting actor for his role as a transgender woman suffering from AIDS in Dallas Buyers Club. He has already won a Golden Globe and a SAG Award for the part, so it’s looking like he’s the frontrunner to take Oscar home with him.
Do you think he’ll thank his mom if he wins?
