Jared Leto has the spirit (award)…
The 42-year-old part-Spanish American actor/singer picked up the first Independent Spirit Award of his career on Saturday, winning the Best Supporting Actor prize for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club.
In what’s being called as one of the most memorable acceptance speeches of all time, Leto thanked just about everyone when he claimed his prize, including Justin Bieber and his “future ex-wife Lupita Nyong’o .
Wayne Gretsky, Baby Jesus, River Phoenix, Kurt Cobain, as well as “all the women I’ve been with and all the women who think they’ve been with me” were also on his list of thanks.
It’s the latest award for Leto, who earned an Academy Award nomination for his portrayal of a male-to-female transgender character addicted to drugs and dying of AIDS in the Jean-Marc Vallee-directed film.
