Jared Leto: ‘I got an ear in the mail’


The actor and 30 Seconds To Mars front man once received an ear, and then proceeded to puncture a hole in it and wear it as a necklace. WARNING: Graphic content.

During an interview with the UK’s 104.9 Xfm, Jared is asked what the “weirdest thing you’ve ever been sent” was, and he says "Someone cut their ear off once, and sent it to me. That was very bizarre.

“It was very strange... The Van Gogh move. It was very strange, and the note just said, ‘Are you listening?’. I’ll never know who it was, who’s missing their ear out there.”

All the better to hear him with, I suppose.

Then, as if being sent an ear in a box wasn’t bad enough, Jared says, ever so nonchalantly, “I poked a hole in it and wore it as a necklace.”

Well, that piece of jewellery is certainly unique.

Jared did urge his fans to not go too overboard: “Just don’t put your entire body in a case and send it to me.”

UPDATE: Jared has actually posted a picture of the ear necklace on his Instragram page.

Would you ever send a body part to your favourite artist?
