He then landed the lead role in Urban Legend (1998) and earned critical acclaim for portraying h**oin addict Harry Goldfarb in Requiem for a Dream (2000).

Leto earned an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance as a transgender woman in Dallas Buyers Club (2013).

With pounds of prosthetics making him almost unrecognizable in the film, Jared Leto ended up looking like he was being forced to slip into the shoes of Gucci founder's grandson Paulo Gucci. Fans reacted negatively to The House of Gucci, especially Leto's performance.
