Jared Leto Praises “Tireless” & Oscar Winning Hair & Make-Up Artists

 One of the few reasons why I enjoy the Oscars is that the event, amidst all the bloated production and self-congratulatory glad handing, actually contains a few nuggets of true emotion. Jared Leto, upon winning his Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club, spent most of his acceptance speech thanking his mother. During the backstage interviews, Leto talked about his the importance of having his family at the Academy Awards.

“I thanked my mother because she’s everything,” said Leto. “She has inspired me in ways that I could talk about for days. So I was really proud to bring my mom tonight, to bring my brother tonight. (They’re the) two most important people in my life and (I) was really fortunate to be able to thank them in a unique and grand way.”

Leto also gave props to hair and makeup artists Adruitha Lee and Robin Matthews. Although they had a $250 budget for Dallas Buyers Club, they took home Oscars for Best Makeup and Hairstyling.
