Jared Leto's Touching Tribute to His Mother

Jared Leto's Touching Tribute to His Mother

Jared Leto first received national attention for his role as Jordan Catalano in the TV series, My So-Called Life.

That was twenty years ago.

Since then, Leto has appeared in films like Fight Club, Prefontaine, The Thin Red Line, American Psycho, and Requiem for a Dream.

He is also the front-man for Thirty Seconds to Mars, a band he started with his older brother, Shannon, in 1998.  That's been a big chunk of Leto's focus for the past 15 years. 

After five years away from acting, Leto appeared in the 2013 film, Dallas Buyers Club.  He portrayed Rayon, a transgender person battling AIDS.  On Sunday night, he won the Academy Award for Actor in a Supporting Role.

His acceptance speech was touching, specifically the part about his mother.  Watch it below.
