Jared Leto was ‘surrounded by hippies’ as a kid. The former My So Called Life star did as he was growing up. The star had said an emotional tribute to his mother during his Best Supporting Actor acceptance speech on Sunday, March 2, 2014. He talked about how a lot of his childhood he was involved in foraging in forests and sleeping in tents which is quite different from the success he has gained for being in the movie the Dallas Buyers Club. He said:
”As a kid I was surrounded by hippies in a tepee in a commune in the forest. We certainly weren’t thinking of awards shows!”
The forty two year old had been influenced by the arts as began to get older however a career in movies was something he never imagined he would have or in rock music with his band Thirty Seconds to Mars.
”I was more interested in art … I’m an art school dropout. But really, I just wanted to be a creative person who could make things.”
