Jared Leto doesn't want that Oscar, thank you very much. The actor may be freshly nominated by the Academy Awards, but as MTV News found out when he sat down for a special "Would You Rather?" edition of MTV After Hours, the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman doesn't care much about recognition.
"I don't really pine for awards," Leto said when asked whether he'd rather have an Oscar or an entry in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. "I never have. Awards and all of that [are] great because it gives you a chance to thank people. But that's about it at the end of the day. It doesn't make you feel better or more confident."
That doesn't mean Leto is anti-awards, persay; he just doesn't put much stock in them. "It's nice and you have a moment," Leto continued. "But once you get past that you're still just an insecure artist trying to just get by."
Speaking of artists, another "shocking" revelation from the interview/game was that Leto would rather marry Kanye West than Kim Kardashian, but mainly for the talking rather than the sexing.
"There's a basis of a relationship, and we always have an interesting conversation," Leto said, giving an in-depth answer. "And being able to talk to your spouse I could imagine as being a really important thing to do. You have to have an eternal conversation, if you're going to be in a relationship. You have to be with someone you can talk to about anything, forever. I'd have to pick Kanye."
However, don't expect Leto to be sharing a hamburger or mozzarella sticks with Kanye over his Oscar nomination anytime soon. The died-in-wool vegan was grossed out by the idea of both, and gave a decidedly less meaty answer to the question. So just to reiterate: no hesitation on marrying Kanye West; couldn't decide on eating a hamburger.
Leto appears in "Dallas Buyers Club," now in theaters.
