Jared Leto has been chatting about his out there performance in House Of Gucci, and the critical backlash against it.

Comfortably one of the biggest talking points of this year’s movie awards season has been Jared Leto’s candidature for assorted Best Supporting Actor gongs. It’d be fair to say that his work as Paolo Gucci in Ridley Scott’s House Of Gucci movie has not been universally loved. But still, he’s thus far picked up a Screen Actors’ Guild nomination, and made the BAFTA longlist too.

Leto has been chatting to Screen Daily about his work in the film, and if he’s aware of the pushback for his work, he’s being coy about it.  “I don’t look at reviews, I don’t look at critics or read comments, but I tried my very best. Paolo is the best I can do. If you don’t like the work, that’s okay”, he told the outlet.

He added that “I had a blast playing it, I dug in as deep as I could”, adding “it’s also that thing of if you’re not pissing people off then you’re doing something wrong. As an actor, if you want to put a dent in things you got to break things a bit, and not everyone’s going to understand that. So if that’s happening, then great”.

The full interview sees Leto go more into how he created his take on Paolo Gucci, and it’s well worth a read. I can’t say I’m a fan of his work in the film – although quite like the movie – but it’s clearly working for many…
