Is that Katy Perry or Jared Leto in drag? The 30 Seconds To Mars frontman dons a pink wig, fake eyelashes and red lipstick for ‘Candy’ magazine’s cover shoot.

Dallas Buyers Club star Jared Leto sports a complete style transformation on the cover of the July issue of Candy magazine, which was photographed by famed celebrity photographer Terry Richardson. On the cover, Jared flaunts big blue eyes and mile-long lashes.

The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman, 41, plays a transexual woman in the AIDS-centric movie, alongside Matthew McConaughey. For his role in The Dallas Buyers Club, Jared sported a different drag look and lost an alarming amount of weight, just like Matthew famously did.

Jared Leto’s Dramatic Weight Loss For Movie Role

“Your body goes through weird stages,” Jared admitted to Vulture in November 2012. “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, Jared also transformed his body by waxing his legs and plucking his eyebrows, which he hopes will actually bring him closer to a “meditative state.”

Previous cover models for Candy include Chloe Sevigny, James Franco, and Tilda Swinton.
