And there we have it. What do we think? No big surprises there, I don’t think. Who do we think will take the big awards? I think 12 Years a Slave has got Best Picture on lock, but anything could happen. The Oscars will be held on March 2nd, so there’s plenty of time to make your predictiongs.

Jared Leto is a beautiful man, so it’s not surprising that he makes a beautiful woman. Here he is on the cover of the summer 2013 edition of Candy magazine. People are saying he looks like Katy Perry or Zooey Deschanel. I’m getting more of a Goldie Hawn circa Laugh-In vibe. Terry Richardson is credited with taking the photo. Not surprised. This has his look all over it. I guess he is the only photographer left in the world, as I see his work pretty much everywhere for everything and everyone in Hollywood.
Here’s another photo of Mr. Leto in drag, from the magazine’s website:
I’m lovin’ it.

Kim Kardashian is always tweeting about something inane. Sometimes she’ll try to tweet about a product without it being incredibly obvious that they’re asking her to. But it’s always obvious. Lohan has been doing her own product endorsement, although the company claims they are not paying her.
And yes, apparently some celebs get paid to tweet about companies and products — even the D-list celebs. The more followers/famous the celeb, the more money they can command per tweet. For example, Kim Kardashian can get (allegedly) around $20,000 per tweet. Frankie Muniz can only get $252. (Nelson Muntz laugh here.)

Jared Leto told Twitter that when he hits 1 million twitter followers, he would get a tattoo. Well he did. And he did. He got this giant tattoo on his back. I’m still not convinced this isn’t a joke. But here it is. The photo was posted on his Instagram account and E Online picked up the story. When the hell did Twitter get this important?
He also seems to really want to show Zach Braff. On Monday he tweeted, “i will show you me showing zach my tat” What am I missing here? I know that they’re friends but do they have a…a tattoo thing?
I went to get more info on Jared Leto’s Twitter, but as of Tuesday night, 11PM, pacific coast time, it’s gone. Somehow we must persevere without Jared Leto’s Twitter account. Can we do it? Are we strong enough?
It will probably come back. Twitter accounts come and go; unfortunately that tattoo is pretty stuck on there.

Is this guy a class act or what? I mean, he’s just so totally method, and what better way to tell the world that you’re method than showing them the actual effects of being so totally method? Shia LaBeouf move over, we have another actor ready and willing to take your place—and this one’s actually a relatively talented thespian!
This photo is from a recent shoot with Terry Richardson, where Jared displayed the shrunken form that he worked so hard on for the role opposite Matthew McConaughey (the very same role that he obliterated his eyebrows for), in ‘The Dallas Buyers Club’. In the film, Jared plays a HIV-diagnosed transsexual woman who supports Matthew McConaughey’s efforts in procuring life-saving drugs from Mexico.
How much thinner can you get, Jared? Jeez Louise.

I’ll tell you, though—one thing we can definitely say about this guy is that he really gets into character. Remember all that weight he put on? All that weight he lost? The time he did Kurt Cobain? Holy crow. I might not be a fan of his ultimate hipster music or his weird fashion choices (or the fact that he’s Scarlett Johansson’s meat puppet—it’s like, come on; sack up and demand the relationship you so obviously want), but there is absolutely no denying that he takes his craft pretty seriously. Unlike the general perception of some other actors and (ahem) actresses of this day and age.
What do you guys think of Jared and his missing eyebrows? Do you love it? Would you still hit it?
