The Academy-Award winner recently revealed why he still hasn't watched the award-winning biographical drama film.
Even though six months have passed since Jared Leto won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Rayon, an HIV-positive transgender woman, in 'Dallas Buyers Club,' he still hasn't seen the film!

The confession came when the 42 year-old actor/singer took part in a Times Talks interview on Thursday (Aug 14th) with New York Times contributor Logan Hill, and when a clip from the award-winning flick was played, Leto covered his ears.
"I can't hear that voice! I've never really heard very much of it and I've never watched the film. I will at some point, I'm sure. But too soon!" he said. "It can never live up to the expectations I would have of it now because it was such a beautiful experience and the response that it got was really wonderful."
This was the first acting job the 'Requiem For A Dream' actor in six years, and when he walked to the stage at the Academy-Awards, he was overcome with "fear" and "panic."
"The funny thing that happens is you do have all of these events happening, so it's not like you can just obsess on that one thing. It's not like you can save everything for that one night," he said. "And also, you don't know if you're going to get it. So, you don't want to be too cocky, you don't want to have something planned out, because you don't want to jinx this incredible moment."

"When you win an Academy Award, you don't get a trophy. You don't get a pat on the back. Your award-reward-is you get a chance to stand in front of the world...and say something that's meaningful to you, meaningful to someone else, you make your choice," he continued. "But I was very clear on that opportunity. I think only because I had played hundreds and hundreds of shows, I played stages around the world, that I was able to get up there and my brain happened to work in that moment."
For the foreseeable future, Leto seems to be concentrating on performing with his band, 30 Seconds To Mars.
