Jared Leto has completely transformed himself for "House of Gucci" - and I'm not sure how to feel

"The Jared Leto I'm familiar with has luscious, long locks, reminiscent of an Olympian god who understands the importance of quality grooming products."

Actor/singer Jared Leto is something of an enigma. His sexy, elusive demeanor, partnered with his incredible talent both on-screen and on-stage, has earned him a coveted spot on my Top Ten Husband's List, alongside Chris Evans and Michael B. Jordan. Yes, I have a lot of husbands. Monogamy isn't for everyone. On Tuesday, photos of Leto were captured on set of his latest film, House of Gucci, and it's safe to say my husband looked completely unrecognizable.


In the new Ridley Scott thriller, Leto will portray Paolo Gucci, alongside Lady Gaga and Adam Driver. The film, based on the novel "The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed," will follow the assassination of legendary fashion designer, Maurizio Gucci who will be played by Driver.

Initially I had to re-examine the photos of Leto, on account of him being completely unrecognizable with receding grey hair, alongside a bald patch. The Leto I'm familiar with has luscious, long locks, reminiscent of an Olympian god who understands the importance of quality grooming products.

This new version of Leto was giving me vintage porn vibes, and not necessarily in a good way.

In addition to his newfound hair, or lack of it, Leto was photographed with prosthetic wrinkles, wearing a lavender corduroy suit with a matching button-down shirt. If I didn't know any better, I'd say Leto was in transit to the sequel of Boogie Nights, which wouldn't exactly be a bad thing.

Leto's transformation is nothing new.

The Suicide Squad actor is famous for his extreme movie transformations, which include titles such as The Little Things and Dallas Buyers Club, for which he won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in 2014. Earlier this month, Lady Gaga posted a photo of her and Driver on-set of their new film, resembling an Alpine daydream. The photo instantly broke the internet, with numerous memes circulating around the web

Considering Leto is a fragrance ambassador for Gucci, and continuously exhibits their clothing on and off the red carpet, this role seems somewhat exemplary for him. He is currently filming alongside Gaga and Driver in Italy, with a release date set for November. The film will also star Hollywood legend Al Pacino, as well as Jeremy Irons.

I'm pleading for pop culture to stop playing OCD for laughs

Perhaps the time has come to re-evaluate how we portray OCD in films and TV series.

Melvin Udall in As Good as it Gets

I've had Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) since I was a child and I'm now in my early 40s. For all of this time, I have felt like I should be apologizing for it.

It's like this invisible phantom that engulfs one in fear and doubt and brings dark clouds to a shiny day at the park. The sense of guilt has always followed me due to the disorder being a part of my everyday life. For whenever I would try to talk about it to a friend or a relative, to explain a certain lifestyle choice, to touch upon its debilitating nature, I've often been looked at funny in return.
