When Jared Leto hits the big time, he doesn't forget about his family.
The actor and 30 Seconds to Mars rocker has had an incredible awards season thanks to his work in "Dallas Buyers Club," and he's bringing his mom along to what may be the highlight, Sunday's Academy Awards.
The Instagram-happy star shared a photo from the FaceTime exchange he and his brother, Shannon, had with their mom as they revealed that she's coming with them to the Oscars.
Like any proud mama would be, Constance was clearly thrilled. After all, she might get to see her son win the best supporting actor Oscar at this year's ceremony.
And if Leto loses out on the Oscar - he's in a tough category that includes first-timer Barkhad Abdi and prior Oscar nominee Jonah Hill - Constance can always console herself with the memory of seeing her 42-year-old son snagging the Screen Actors Guild Award for best supporting actor in a drama in January; she was at that awards ceremony, too.
With the big event creeping closer, Leto's hairstylist is also planning how to help the nominee's enviable locks shine.
According to Into the Gloss, which interviewed Leto's follicle wrangeler of six years, Chase Kusero, the actor will likely be wearing his man-bun again, but this time a neater, lower version with a side part.
"The big thing on my shoulders right now is if the hair is gonna be up or down - I’m voting up, because we’ve only done it maybe once before," Kusero said. "It’s really important that he doesn’t look like a woman, that’s the biggest challenge. It’s been hard to have him not end up on the ‘best hair’ lists, and that definitely hasn’t been our intention. We've even had all these actresses, like Olivia Wilde and Rachel Bilson and Julia Roberts, asking about his hair. He does have amazing hair, so it’s kind of inevitable."
The only thing that Kusero could say for sure is that Leto will have long hair at the Oscars, but even the man-bun is still in question.
"The only thing I can say is that right now I'm all about the 'wet look,'" he hinted.
