Jared Leto is building a reputation for transforming his appearance for movie roles.
The 41-year-old ‘Fight Club’ star revealed his shocking weight loss at the Toronto film festival last week with new film ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ - where he plays a transsexual suffering from AIDS.
Now in the new trailer for ‘Mr. Nobody’ we see him in heavy make-up... as a 120-year-old man.
Directed by Jaco Van Dormael, Leto plays Nemo Nobody, a character the film follows from birth all the way until he is the last man to die a natural death. On his deathbed, Nemo reminisces about his life.
Needless to say, Leto clocked up some serious hours in makeup for the role - six and a half hours every day - according to co-star Diane Kruger.
Talking about the role, Leto said: “This film is really challenging because some days I play three different versions of the same person. I play twelve different versions of the same person [throughout the film], everything from a homeless version, another one is 120 years-old, another one is on a space ship in mars.” Sounds exhausting to us.
The film was made back in 2009 but is only now getting a theatrical and online release in the US - hence the new trailer. It's available on DVD in the UK, and will surely get a fresh batch of promotion if Leto, as expected, picks up an Oscar nomination for ‘Dallas Buyers Club'.
