From musician to movie star, Jared Leto certainly is one of the most interesting and enigmatic stars out there. The American actor was recently interviewed by Ellen DeGeneres and there he revealed several facts about himself that we bet most fans did not know about.

Jared Leto made a special appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and there he spoke about his most recent movie 'House Of Gucci' but also, the host asked him more trivial questions such as his celebrity crushes among other things. 

"Barbara Eden," Leto mentioned as celebrity crush, "And Vanna White. I loved Vanna White." However, everyone laughed at this point because he mentioned a third one that we bet no one expected. “And Christopher Walken” "That took a turn," DeGeneres replied while smiling.


You can remember Barbara Eden as the one who portrayed Jeannie in  I Dream of Jeannie. Meanwhile, Vanna White was a contestant in the Miss Georgia USA 1978 but later became one of three hosts of Wheel of Fortune. On the other hand, you have seen Christopher Walken has starred in classic films like Batman Returns, Pulp Fiction, and more recently in Percy.

Jared Leto did not stop with the confessions there. When talking about 'House of Gucci' he admitted that he is happy because the movie is set to be in theaters  "It's in theaters, which is fun to have a film that's exclusively in theaters, and I'm excited about that because I love going to the movies."

At this point, the actor admitted that his love for cinema goes beyond time. When he was young he used to work at a movie theater but sadly he was fired for a very fair reason. "I actually worked at a movie theater when I was a kid. And I got fired for selling weed out the back door," said Leto. "I was just an entrepreneur."

DeGeneres joked, "You were hustling. Trying to sell popcorn and weed at the same time. What's wrong with that?" Leto replied with a sly smile "They go well together, some say."

This is not the first time that Jared Leto speaks about his endeavors. Back in 2014, he revealed to W Magazine that he worked at a restaurant and did not get paid much, or at least, not as much as selling cannabis. "My first professional job? It's a toss-up if it was selling weed or working at a barbecue restaurant as a dishwasher. At the barbecue restaurant, I got paid $2.50 an hour and I had taxes taken out, which I'm fairly certain was illegal at the time.”

Nevertheless, he admitted at the time that the only problem with that is that sometimes instead of selling, another problem arose. ”I was just happy to have a job. That meant freedom to me. The weed could have paid better than the dishwashing. The problem is, you know, is getting high on your own supply and breaking that golden rule."
