00:05you say jared leto is 50 years old let
00:09that sink in for a minute why is it that
00:11twitter seemingly lost their mind after
00:13jared leto presented a grammy to olivia
00:16rodrigo a seemingly innocent interaction
00:19with dark roots that only some are aware
00:21of jared leto began his acting career in
00:241992 in the television series camp
00:27wilder but really hit the limelight two
00:29years later with his breakout role as
00:31jordan catalano in my so-called life it
00:34was clear that he was a heartthrob and
00:36had acting talent a combination that
00:38would allow him to star in hollywood
00:40cult classics like fight club american
00:42psycho and requiem for a dream jared
00:45leto is known for being a method actor
00:47aiming to show real and raw emotions in
00:50his roles by throwing himself into the
00:52world of the character that he plays
00:54sometimes he gets it right other times
00:56he falls flat on his face one of his
00:58earliest demonstrations of method was in
01:00prefontaine a 1997 biopic about the
01:04legendary distance runner jared leto is
01:06most notably known for his oscar-winning
01:08performance as rayon a struggling
01:10transgender woman in dallas buyers club
01:13method acting traditionally known as the
01:15stanislavski system was developed as a
01:17way for actors to combine the outer and
01:20inner theatrical sense of self by
01:22physically embodying the character's
01:24experiences today's actors must look to
01:27moscow at the beginning of the 20th
01:29century to find one of the great
01:31theatrical figures of his time
01:33an actor stage director teacher and
01:36founder of the legendary moscow art
01:39theater
01:39[Music]
01:41this is constantine stanislavski
01:45before his death in 1938 and after
01:48he was an enigma
01:50successive generations have either
01:52venerated him or discredited him
01:56a constant source of controversy he has
01:58been nominated with einstein and freud
02:01as one of the three true visionaries of
02:04the century
02:06others have denounced him as a charlatan
02:08purveyor of mumbo jumbo
02:12one thing is undeniable
02:14stanislavski his theater and his acting
02:17system found immortality even as the
02:20world around him was being torn apart
02:22although method acting is a legitimate
02:24way that many actors get into character
02:26it's oftentimes used as a selling point
02:28for modern movies usually headlines are
02:31run showcasing the extremes that some of
02:33these actors go to in order to prepare
02:35for their roles it's cringy and
02:37oftentimes embellished or fabricated to
02:39stir up hype this is one of the main
02:41reasons why people hate jared leto's
02:43joker but we'll get into that later if
02:46you're able to separate jared leto from
02:48his acting ability it's no secret that
02:50he's successful on the big screen
02:52parallel to his rise to fame in
02:53hollywood during the 90s jared leto
02:55would start a band with his brother
02:57shannon they would name it 30 seconds to
02:59mars if you grew up during this time
03:01like myself you can probably remember
03:04the kill playing on every alternative
03:06radio station in the 2000s 30 seconds to
03:09mars would go on to have numerous
03:10breakout hits as their style shifted
03:12from edgy to pop this is why many 30
03:15seconds to mars fans are nostalgic of
03:17their original music but cringe at their
03:19new stuff they continue to create music
03:21around vague relatable themes such as
03:23struggle love life death and faith did
03:2630 seconds to mars dominate any genre
03:29probably not but they were insanely
03:31successful in creating a cult following
03:33that is now bigger than ever known as
03:35the echelon the echelon is what 30
03:38seconds to mars fans collectively call
03:40themselves not only are they obsessed
03:42with the band's music but also the
03:44themes and messages prevalent in all
03:46aspects of the community members of the
03:48echelon refer to each other as part of a
03:50family from an outside view the echelon
03:53is just like any other stan group and
03:55the reality is stan groups are cash cows
03:58jared leto knows this and perpetuates
04:00the us vs them dynamic to increase
04:03rapport with his fans it's one of the
04:05many ways in which he breaks the
04:06audience artist wall without actually
04:08having to do much and reap the benefits
04:11each member of the echelon will go as
04:13far as to follow the band around the
04:15world making sure to attend every tour
04:17event possible 30 seconds to mars even
04:20has guinness world records for their
04:22seemingly endless tours their logo is a
04:24triad with a line through it which you
04:26can find on almost any of their work and
04:28on leto himself twice in 2009 the band
04:32released merch which said yes we are a
04:35cult although this is supposedly an
04:37inside joke between jared leto and his
04:39super fans it's a slippery slope when
04:42given the context of jared leto's
04:44reputation if you define cult as a group
04:47or movement held together by a shared
04:49commitment to a charismatic leader or
04:51ideology then the echelon checks all the
04:53boxes and it certainly doesn't help his
04:55case that he literally looks like jesus
04:57in 2015 jared leto started camp mars a
05:01malibu retreat where fans can experience
05:03the band on a closer level camp mars
05:06included outdoor activities live
05:07performances from the band and a chance
05:09to meet jared leto himself packages
05:11ranged from sleeping in tents to vip
05:14lounges and the prices increased
05:15accordingly camp mars was a huge success
05:18and after 2015 it became tradition it
05:21would ultimately evolve into something
05:22much much bigger mars island is a
05:25three-night all-inclusive getaway on the
05:27private island of obanyan in croatia

07:51of mars where jared leto actually
07:54performs in a cathedral while totally
07:56not acting like a cult leader one of the
07:58nights in 2019 consisted of a white
08:01knight where everyone dressed up in
08:02white and sang kumbaya by the fire once
08:05again jarletto leans into the cult
08:07accusations by being self-aware about it
08:09let's all pose for a picture to mess
08:11with the media except self-awareness
08:14doesn't make it any less of an actual
08:16cult and one glaringly obvious

08:36he's on mars the man is detached from
08:38reality physically and figuratively he's
08:41been riding his breakout success for
08:43over two decades and it doesn't seem
08:45like it will ever slow down if you
08:47really study jared leto in the media he
08:50has a history of acting like a
08:51self-entitled celebrity with a god
08:54complex at the start of the pandemic
08:56jared leto posted this gem on instagram
08:59he was on a 12-day silent retreat and
09:02didn't know that kovid took over the
09:04world he is also well connected with
09:06mega brands like gucci and this walking
09:09nightmare have you ever seen celebrities
09:11completely abuse their power by making
09:13interviewers uncomfortable i've observed
09:16that many celebrities get off on preying
09:18on women in front of a camera they like
09:20to push buttons be inappropriate and see
09:23how much they can get away with by
09:25trying to charm or seduce when in
09:28reality they are playing a rigged game
09:30designed to feed their own ego
09:33you're quite beautiful by the way thank
09:35you
09:40i would like to answer that by asking a
09:42question what doesn't turn me on for a
09:44long time can i squeeze your mic uh and
09:47i
09:48i get there at five in the morning okay
09:50and i go straight to work

10:14at a sexual relationship between the two
10:17of you did it
10:18did it is that what you took away from
10:20me i don't know what do you think it's
10:21kind of like a rorschach test i think
10:23what did you think i'm thinking yeah
10:25really yeah dirty birdie just kidding
10:30i believe that jared leto and other
10:32celebrities are never really challenged
10:34on this type of behavior for a couple of
10:36reasons number one cameras are rolling
10:39and the interviewers have a job to
10:41uphold the spontaneity that will ensue
10:44directly after challenging a celebrity
10:46is too much of a risk number two they
10:49don't know how to react because it's
10:50awkward and number three sometimes the
10:53interviewers play into it because they
10:55are actually star struck and attracted
10:57to the celebrity which reinforces this
10:59type of behavior i haven't finished here
11:02this work yet to be done have you have
11:04you had into her eyes they're absolutely
11:07i mean insane they're gold and blue and
11:11i was thinking the same thing can we

11:15aware of his talent and looks and he
11:18uses it to get away with everything he
11:20makes it a point to always touch women
11:22bring them in close and bask in the
11:25tension in front of other people he
11:27appears confident because he truly
