In a recent interview with the British radio station Xfm (via CBS), Jared Leto reveled the craziest gift he has ever received from a fan.
Since he’s an actor and member of the band 30 Seconds to Mars, it’s not surprising that Leto is showered with gifts, but we didn’t think he got any gory ones.
“The fans are an incredibly committed and passionate group of people. Going to a show is kind of like visiting Japan — you expect gifts on your arrival,” Leto said. “You get all kinds of wonderful things. Someone cut their ear off once and sent it to me. That was very strange. A whole ear. The Van Gogh move. The note just said, ‘Are you listening?’ I never knew who it was, who’s missing their ear out there.”
Yet what’s even more bizarre is that Leto decided to keep the ear and wear it as a freakin necklace!
“I poked a hole in it and wore it as a necklace!”
We know he’s a rock star but … that’s just gross. To top it off, the former “My So-Called Life” heartthrob posted a picture of the bloody piece of flesh on his Instagram Monday (Mar 25) account with the caption, “Are you listening?”
How creepy is that? Who on earth would cut off their ear for a B-list celeb?
Then again, this could all be a publicity stunt. I mean, how do we even know that’s a real ear?
