Jared Leto unfazed by his Queer image

April 14, 2014 Jared Leto, Shannon Leto

Jared Leto is the coolest star we know.

The Dallas Buyer’s club Oscar winner while speaking to FourTwoNine magazine says he doesn’t care if people call him ‘queer.’

The chief editor of the magazine mentions that few of his "straight friends have begun to define themselves as queer without it being a sexual term but a cultural one,"

Further he asks Leto and his brother Shannon Leto if they mind being tagged by that label.

I wouldn't care," Shannon said.

Jared added, "I don't think we'd care at all. We certainly identify with people who are different."

"I got a note from a kid yesterday," Jared said. "We were signing a thousand CDs after a show. If you looked at him, he looked like any young kid maybe in twelfth grade or eleventh grade who'd be on the baseball team or something. A nice looking kid. He handed me a note and it said, 'I just want to say thanks so much for the music. It's helped me in many ways–especially with coming out this year to my family.'"

The Leto’s were not born in LGBT friendly places.

We escaped early on," Jared said. "It's very oppressive."

He further explained, "We would go back for the summers and stay with our grandmother, though. So the culture was always there that we returned to. We moved around every couple of years growing up. Way up to north Massachusetts. Everywhere. But no matter where we were it was a very creative environment around artists. That is obviously an important reason that Shannon and I are pursuing the path that we are now."
