Jared Leto almost dressed in drag for the Oscars

Jared Leto considered dressing in drag for the Oscars.

The actor almost went as his character from 'Dallas Buyer's Club' - a transgender woman Rayon - to the ceremony earlier this month, where he triumphed, taking home Best Supporting Actor for his part in the movie.

He told the London Evening Standard newspaper: "I thought about dragging up for the Oscars, going as Rayon, because I knew that she would have loved to be there."

Jared added he was amazed by how much time he had to spend on his look as a woman, saying it gave him a new "appreciation" of what girls do to prepare for a night out.

He added: "It's so much work for girls to get ready. I was brought up by my mum, so I always had an appreciation of women. But now I have more respect for the process. It's a lot, what women have to do to themselves.

"But in the end, when you put that final dash of lipstick on and your look all comes together, it really is a glorious reward."

In the end Jared wore a white Yves Saint Laurent dinner jacket with black trousers and a red bowtie to the event, and although he's not usually interested in award shows, he appreciated the platform winning an Oscar gave him.

He added: "I would never say, 'I don't give a s**t about the Oscars,' because it's not the whole truth. It's not about the shiny, naked golden man, or the pat on the back.

"It's about being able to stand on a world stage for two minutes in front of a billion people and say something that is meaningful, important to you."
