"Because I’m a man, I don’t deserve to play that part? So you would hold a role against someone who happened to be gay or lesbian – they can’t play a straight part?
Then you’ve made sure people that are gay, people that aren’t straight, people like the Rayons of the world would never have the opportunity to turn the tables and explore parts of that art.”
- Jared Leto (when confronted that he, being a man, should not play a transgendered role)
Do you see the irony?
Ever since Dallas Buyers Club began its promotional activities, Jared had been bombarded with criticism. Not because he had portrayed his character incorrectly but, funnily enough, because of his gender.
