Jared Leto

Biography: Born in Bossier City, Louisiana on December 26, 1971, Jared Leto lived a transient childhood thanks to his mother, who moved him and his brother Shannon to Haiti and then to a Colorado commune (and to some spots in between). The multitalented Leto initially enrolled at Philadelphia's University of the Arts because he wished to be a painter, but transferred to New York City's School of Visual Arts after becoming passionate about acting. In 1992, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. Two years later, he landed a role as the object of Claire Danes' affection on the cult hit teenage drama, My So-Called Life. As millions of girls began hanging Jared Leto posters on their walls, he starred in his first film, 1995's How to Make an American Quilt. In 1998, he finally got some serious recognition in film, having impressed his fellow cast members in The Thin Red Line and Urban Legend. Leto's penchant for starring in critically-acclaimed movies became apparent after supporting roles in 1999's Girl, Interrupted and Fight Club, and 2000's American Psycho. Though he was passed up for the lead role in the latter, Leto earned a starring spot as a heroin addict in 2000's disturbing, much-lauded flick, Requiem for a Dream. After more supporting roles in 2002's Panic Room and 2004's Alexander, during which time he also pursued his musical talents with the group 30 Seconds to Mars, Leto returns to the big screen in Lord of War (2005), Lonely Hearts (2006) and Chapter 27 (2007).
