Jared Leto thinks being a film star is more interesting than making music.
The ‘Fight Club’ actor – who also fronts rock band 30 Seconds to Mars
– enjoys both aspects of his professional life but finds movie-making
He said: “Making a film is really the most interesting part for me. I
love the research. I love the building of a character. I also don’t
need to make five movies a year – I’m not after being the person who
makes the most films. I want to have a rewarding, challenging
experience, so I tend to do more art house type films, not big
blockbuster movies. It’s interesting to be able to be a smaller piece
of a bigger puzzle.”
While Jared prefers the challenge of the film industry, the
38-year-old hunk also enjoys the responsibility he has producing
music, writing songs and coming up with ideas for the band – also
consisting of Tomo Milicevic and Shannon Leto.
He explained: “With music you’re much more responsible for everything.
As the songwriter, as a person who’s behind some of the creative
ideas, you are the director, writer, editor, producer and the actor,
so you have a much bigger contribution.”
