An Ode to Jared Leto

Jared Leto is one of the most beautiful men alive. 
However, that does not limit him from experimenting with his looks, opting for all sorts of distortional makeovers, as he also tries to showcase his musical talent, stepping far beyond his natural acting prowess. 
He has acted, directed and produced films. 
His films - both art-house and mainstream - have had critical acclaim. His films have attained cult-status as well. 
He is one of the only few musician-actors who has struck gold in his dual roles. 
He earned early fame as a teenage heartthrob, but soon graduated to meaningful roles. 
For getting under the skin of the characters he plays, he often goes to extremes. 
He experiments with his looks like a true rock-star. 
From looking suave, to dapper, to punk, to grunge, he's just perfect..... I say it unashamedly. 
His social and political convictions are strong and he is vocal about the same. 
He is devoted to his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, and its music. 
From gaining several pounds to look obese for a role, to shedding clothes and inhibitions, Jared Leto is an actor worth following. 
And so have I become a loyalist, watching him in films, and, later, in music videos. 
May he keep rocking.
