Despite the fact that Suicide Squad came, saw, and
conquered stunk up movie theaters nine months ago, we’re still hearing tales of Jared Leto’s method acting as The Joker. This time it’s from his Suicide Squad co-star Ike Barinholtz. We already know Jared (acting as The Joker) gave his co-stars live rats, dead pigs, bullets, and used dick sleeves. Jared gave Ike a gift that couldn’t be bought at Method Acting Asshole Depot: a kiss on the mouth.
We all know that when it comes to dressing for the Oscars, everyone takes it very seriously. They put on a tux or fancy gown that definitely didn’t come with a check attached to the garment bag. Most of the time the result is a one-way ticket to Zzzzzz town (see: a good 75% of the looks from last night). But then everyone gets to let loose at Vanity Fair’s annual Oscar afterparty and put on what they really want to wear (see: The Gold Standard). Like many people at the Vanity Fair party, Diane Kruger wasn’t at the Oscars and she showed up wearing that.
Tomorrow we find out if all the hard work and hand jobs Ryan Reynolds has been giving have paid off when the Oscar nominations are announced. But today we find out whose lazy hand job of a performance was rewarded with a 2017 Razzie nomination
There was a nominations sweep at this year’s Razzies. Zoolander 2 got 9 nominations, followed closely behind by Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice with 8. Sorry, 1997’s Batman and Robin, it looks like you’re still the Batman movie with the most Razzie nominations. But don’t worry, there’s a chance that Batman movie written and directed by Ben Affleck could happen.
Jared Leto’s award dreams came true in the most Twilight Zone-y of ways. He’s not going to get the Oscar nomination he was no doubt sure he was going to get, but he did get a Worst Supporting Actor Razzie for Suicide Squad. And Julia Roberts’ performance as Lady Wearing a Bad Wig in Mother’s Day earned her a Worst Actress nomination. That wig didn’t get a Worst Supporting Actor nomination, because of course it didn’t; that wig worked its ass off and supported her like a load-bearing beam.
And Ben Affleck received his 10th Razzie nomination today. The big one-zero! He should go out and celebrate tonight for reaching a career milestone. Maybe his BFF Tom Brady will treat Ben to a steamed green bean and unseasoned fish dinner at his house.
The list of nominees is after the cut.
Lately, Jared Leto has been looking like the pure definition of a fashion victim, and at The Fashion Awards 2016 in London last night, he turned it all the way up. If Jared and his stylist were going for “Willy Wonka after getting a bootleg Beatles haircut and dye job and moving to The Valley to become a sleazy porn producer,” they nailed it hard. That Gucci’d out ensemble just screams, “I’m going to make you a STAH, baby, now let’s go back to my place to sign the contracts….” Trick looks like the orgy baby that every character in Boogie Nights made together.
Well, I guess if you’re going to look like Liberace as seen through the eyes of Terry Richardson, a fashion awards show is the place to do it. And Jared Leto, who is becoming a Fighting The Hot Grand Champion, must’ve gotten sick of hos throwing their coochies and assholes at him all the time, so he turned himself into a walking boner killer by getting a janky bowl cut that looks like it was done with safety scissors. That’ll do it!
Here’s a million more pictures from The Fashion Awards. Come for David Gandy (“You can say that again.” – your genitals) and stay for Donatella Versace serving up Solid Gold Muppet sexiness.
Regretful super-villain Jared Leto has even more woe in his life now besides the realization that he’d been cruelly tricked into making millions of dollars by a deceitful movie studio. A judge has ruled that Jared’s suit against TMZ for posting a video of him verbally cutting up Taylor “Serpent” Swift and her music was about as valid as his attempt to one-up Heath Ledger.
Somewhere in the afterworld, David Bowie has just offered to hold Andy Warhol’s lit cigarette so he can go back to his grave to roll.
The Hollywood Reporter says that Jared Leto will produce and star in the indie biopic called Warhol. The script will be based on Warhol: The Biography by Victor Bockris and Terence Winter, who wrote The Wolf of Wall Street and co-created HBO’s Vinyl, will write it. They haven’t found a director yet. Jared owns the rights to that biography and has been looking to throw it up onto movie screens for a while.
Okay, okay, maybe Jared Leto as Andy Warhol isn’t that much of an awful thing. If anything, we’ll get more stories about how he’s the greatest method actor who ever method’ed. Jared will tell reporters that like Warhol, he filled his house with trash (aka Suicide Squad DVDs), had his wigs made by the grandchild of Warhol’s real wigmaker and sent his castmates used condoms (again) and real mummified human feet. And Jared will tell reporters all of that while laid up in a hospital bed where he’ll be recovering from a bullet wound. Because, yes, Jared is so method that he’s going to let the actress playing Valerie Solanas shoot at him for real. Just give him the Oscar now.
