Many years ago, when I as still a student in the UK, I got to know a TV series My So Called Life starring the teenage Claire Danes and this beautiful guy Jared Leto.
Jared was here in Malaysia presenting the MTV Asia Awards 2008 which was held here for the first time after its previous run in Singapore and Thailand mostly.
Actually I wanted to go and was eyeing the possibility of auditioning for the "Mosh Pit crowd". However, what stopped me in my track was the following requirement:
Must be able to hold your bladders!
Hey, that's crazy!
Anyway, I did watch it on MTV channel on Saturday.
What mesmerized me about Jared was the fact that he looks at least 10 years younger. His skin clear and wrinkle free. His hair shiny. His piercing blue eyes glowing. It's like time never moves a hand on him since My So Called Life.
Jared looking not a day over 25!
Can you believe this guy is approaching 40?
It's great that this guy is one of the very few current darlings in rock music who is actually older than me whereas many rockers today are barely out of their teens. He's 37 and I'm 34. But looking at these pictures, he certainly doesn't look a day older than 25.
As a guy who's into environmental issues and living well and healthily, Jared is the epitome of what we can be if we live clean living. He's a vegetarian if I'm not mistaken and I think it shows its benefits judging from these photos.
Ok. Now I think I'd hold my bladders for him....... :-)
