It’s 5pm on a Thursday. Two

Brunch

colleagues are on coffee break. Someone brings up Jared Leto and a fierce debate ensues. Excerpts:



Rachel Lopez:

Honestly, what regular-people movies has he even done?


Nihit Bhave:

He isn’t trying to become JLaw or Brad Pitt, so regular people don’t *need* to know of him! And he was in

Fight Club

!


RL:

Wait. Who was he in

Flight Club

? That movie had only three people.


NB:

Shhh! You can’t talk about

Fight Club

. You’re breaking the first rule.


RL:

How can you take him seriously as an actor when an American magazine devotes a slideshow to 26 of his hair looks?


NB:

I see your magazine’s 26 Hair Looks, and raise you

Buzzfeed’s

27 Reasons Jared Leto Was The Absolute Best Person During All Of Award Season.


RL:

He still looks like Stoner Jesus to me.


NB:

Exactly. So you agree he’s cool?


RL:

He won an Oscar for playing a transgender and didn’t thank trans people!


NB:

By that logic, Natalie Portman should have thanked ballerinas for

Black Swan

. Or swans, maybe? Besides, he’s an actor winning an Oscar, backing this minority for image-building. Meh.


RL:

OMG, he has an official Jared Leto Merchandise shop. Modest much?


NB:

That long shiny hair doesn’t maintain itself. Baby needs cash!


RL:

Jimmy Kimmel once described him as so arrogant that he is the worst person he ever interviewed.


NB:

You’re clearly following the wrong Jimmy. Watch Leto’s hilarious meditation session with Jimmy Fallon.


RL:

Incidentally, there are two other guys in his band 30 Seconds To Mars but he gets all the attention.


NB:

Haters gonna hateeee!


RL:

He’s not Joker in a Batman movie but an ensemble DC-type film!


NB:

Better Joker in a DC-type film than in one where Ben Affleck plays Batman!


RL:

Celebs who try to do too many things never do well, where’s James Franco now?


NB:

Ummm, heard of this little Internet sensation of a film called

The Interview

? This is never going to end. Can we please talk about The Mindy Project now?


And thus, peace is restored.
