Jared Leto's Top Five Secrets for Staying Creative and Engaged

Jared Leto, who is both a singer and an actor, played Rayon in the movie "Dallas Buyers Club." According to the Advocate, Leto's character

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.

"12 Years A Slave" Sweeps the Awards

The big winner at this year's BOFCA Awards was the film "12 Years a Slave." Among the awards it won was for "Best Director" for Steve McQueen and for "Best Actor" for Chiwetel Ejiofor as well as for "Best Ensemble." Other actors starring in the film include Lupita Nyong'o as Patsey (who won for "Best Supporting Actress"), Benedict Cumberbatch as Ford and Michael Fassbender as Edwin Epps.

The movie "12 Years a Slave" is based on the book of the same name by Solomon Northup.
