The story will be circled around the Hollywood star, whom the fame found after the role in “First Fight”, which was released in 1999.
Let us see how it all started. Jared was offered to present a fighter, who has destroyed teeth and a bit scary appearance. All except the muscles was achieved by the good screen effects. But a hard six-day workout was certainly demanded.
Besides, some changes to the look were also brought: they are connected with the white eyebrows and hair. Is it more attractive than before?
The role he starved the two month for is “Requiem for a Dream”, which was presented to the audience in 2000. The character was all about the heroin addiction, so it get be easily what his appearance looked like.
Jared was in front of the choice and he made a positive decision. A diet of raw vegetable helped him to lose 28 pounds, which are equal to 12,6 kilos. The actor had no meals, but the small pieces of something. It may be said he ate nothing if in general.

He changed the appearance quite a lot, beginning from the hair color. Did somebody count how many times he did it?
The recovering process was very complicated as he managed to find a gap in filming and went to the Portugal in the monastery, where searched for support and help in gaining the kilos. It took him several months to be alright.
Guess who is in the starring role? – Jared Leto.
Another challenge should have been overcome: the putting on weight process. In the first chapter it was written, as the actor commented, you have to gain 67 pounds (30 kilos). He seemed to be impressed much.
How? – The answer is being free of charge in eating. Eating six times per day not the small portions, he way how many celebrities do in order to drop some extra kilos, but big, creamy, highly-carbonated and with huge amount of calories.
The problem had arisen while filming. Jared felt pain in feet. As he was eating much during the all production, so till the end was hardly moving. It was difficult for him to make any action.
Afterwards he had to sit on a strict diet, working out hard in the gym. In general it took him a year of life to get back to the initial weight.
And finally, the most important as well as the most recognizable role till the present moment is the transwoman, presented by Jared in the “Dallas Buyers Club”. It was highly rewarded not only by fans, but also by critics, as he received the Oscar for the Best Supporting Role.
He stopped eating at all, after 30 pounds (13,5 kilos) stopped counting. There were no diet, no working out, no other measures to be taken.
Friends and relatives were shocked, when they got to know about his weight, as it was around 114 pounds (51,3 kilos). They didn’t know it all was because of a film.
The Jared’s comment was “After a while I stopped counting. It changes the way you sit and walk”.
The total amount, which was lost during the preparation stuff, is 40 pound (nearly 18 kilos). On screen, he was hardly recognized, having the eyebrows and the area around eyes completely changed. Looking like a woman, he was extremely slim, maybe even thinner than the average lady around the globe.
The renewing process was connected with his health accommodation, to prevent the variety of concern, which may arise due to so frequent weight change. It took him several months.
To conclude, it may be said that all fans are eager to see the new upcoming projects. Will they be that impressive or just calm street American life, we will see.
On the example of Jared Leto it can be proved that acting industry is not just bright photo shoots and working days starring with famous actors, surrounded by a pleasant atmosphere. It’s a hard work, which should be done in any way and any time.
