NOTES FROM THE OUTERNET // Let’s All Be A Little More “Jared Leto-like”
I read this article someone wrote about Jared Leto today and it was so beautiful. Yes, I have a crazy love for him that I can’t explain haha, BUT reading his articles, posts, and watching his documentaries he has SO much to say. He asks so many questions and that’s what makes him different from everyone else. He is so successful, and I am not talking about career wise, I am talking about the way he thinks and sees the world. It is really fascinating to me. He doesn’t give a shit, but also cares so much. I think we should all live a little more “Jared Leto-like”
Below is an excerpt from the article that was my favorite.
The fact is: Jared Leto doesn’t do what you are supposed to do and he gets away with it. Makes films when he wants to. Records when the time is right. It might be luck, it might be talent, it could be hard work, or it could just be fueled by the naïve optimism that comes from a once-broke Louisiana kid who was told early on that being creative might not make you any less broke, but it might make being broke a little less shitty. It’s why his eyes are wide and blinking them is a waste of precious time. There’s too much to take in, too much to see. Fuck Google Earth. Technology is a weed. It blocks pathways.
“This is a crazy time in my life, but it’s a focused time,” he says. “It’s not like it’s out of control. You only get to do this once and in this case once may be the only time you get to do it. It’s a funny way to say it, but it’s kind of true. I’m acutely aware of that and very respectful of the path I’m walking down. I’m glad that this happened to me now and not when I first started. It’s a really good thing.”
