Jared Leto's Oscar Is Already Damaged, But He Calls It 'Lived In'

Posted: Updated:

If you had to select which of this year's major Oscar winners is most likely to damage his or her new trophy, who would you pick? If you said Jared Leto, you'd be correct, because apparently he's already done just that.

Whereas we'd safeguard our coveted Oscar, the 42-year-old "Dallas Buyers Club" winner revealed to Canada's "Entertainment Tonight" that he dinged up his Oscar within hours of receiving it.

"I was letting some of the people that I work with take a picture with the Oscar and I was carrying it down the stairs and, boom, I hit it against the stairs, the railing and I put a little nick in the back of it," Leto said. "So, you know, that’s how it goes. It’s already lived in, as they say.”

We're not sure we'd say that, Jared, but of course the ever-charming actor takes a carefree approach to the matter. Dinged up or not, he still has the Oscar sitting in a prime spot that we hope is a safe one.

“The Oscar is sitting in my kitchen, guarded by some vegan butter and a bag of popcorn,” the Best Supporting Actor winner said. “You know, they kind of end up in the kitchen because that's the first place that I go when I get home. You put your keys down and you take off your jacket … and you put your Oscar in the kitchen.”
