Jared Leto Uncertain of Oscar Success

Jared LetoJared Leto doesn't believe "people like him" win Oscars.

The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman has been tipped for Academy Awards success for his role in Dallas Buyers Club - in which he plays a transsexual AIDS sufferer opposite Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner - but he doesn't expect to receive one of the prestigious accolades.

"It's nuts. They don't give Oscars to people like me!" he said.

The movie marks the 41-year-old star's first acting role since 2009's Mr. Nobody and Jared joked he was amazed he could still act. "I hadn't made a film in so long, I'm lucky I remembered how to act, to tell you the truth. I just dove in deep and did that best that I could," he said.

Despite his modesty, Jared is proud of the movie and the Oscar buzz it has generated: "It's surreal. It's so great. I'll tell you what - anybody that has anything negative to say about the process needs to see a doctor. There are much worse things to do than have your film supported and celebrated."
