No stranger to changing his body for a role, Jared has become practically skeletal as he films ‘The Dallas Buyer’s Club!’

Matthew McConaughey‘s extreme weight loss is so yesterday. Now it’s all about Jared Leto, who has dropped a staggering amount of weight for a role in the same film, The Dallas Buyers’ Club. Jared, 40, plays a transexual woman in the AIDS-centric movie, which also stars Jennifer Garner.

And believe it or not, Jared only became involved with the project a few weeks ago! So how does the former Jordan Catalano feel about his radical new physique?

“Your body goes through weird stages,” he admits to Vulture. “Sometimes it’s hard to hold on to water. But for me, it’s not about the most weight I can lose, it’s more to represent the character. I’m focused on what it means to be a transsexual woman.”

Along with dropping weight, the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman is also transforming his body by waxing his legs and plucking his eyebrows, which he hopes will actually bring him closer to a “meditative state.”
