The Boston Online Film Critics Association (BOFCA) announced on Dec. 7, 2013 that 30 Seconds to Mars singer, Jared Leto, won the award for the "Best Supporting Actor" for 2013. The award highlights just how versatile and creative the 30STM frontman is.
is a “fictional composite character,” [and] is someone who wanted to live her life as a woman. Although the characters in the film commonly misgender Rayon — referring to her as “he” — Leto’s pronouns and language choice have been mostly respectful. (He uses the t word in the Moviefone chat, but I’ll give him the very slight benefit of a doubt — as the word reads like it should have air quotes around it.) In interviews, Leto has consistently insisted that Rayon is “transgender.” This is a term that is used to indicate that someone identifies with the opposite gender that they were assigned at birth.
The "Dallas Buyers Club" also stars Matthew McConaughey as Ron Woodroof and Jennifer Garner and Dr. Eve Saks.
