Joker star and Hollywood heartthrob Jared Leto recently revealed that he didn’t even know about the Coronavirus pandemic until much later! The news of the pandemic reportedly reached the actor late as he was taking part in a two-week “silent meditation” getaway when the United States was facing the first lockdown after coronavirus took its toll on countless lives. 

 

During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Jared Leto said “When I went away, there were about 150 cases,” the Oscar winner began, “and just in that short amount of time, when I came out, there was a shutdown, a state of emergency and the whole world had changed.” The actor didn’t have his phone, a TV, or any other way to connect to the outside world. 

 

In the chat, Jared told Jimmy that the instructors at this retreat made a decision to not disturb participants during the retreat. Jared continued: “And I didn’t turn on my phone until I went back to L.A. So, I drove the whole way trying to be, like, peaceful and zen, keep the feeling going. I got back, and I was, you know, kind of shocked. It was like Rip Van Winkle.”

 

On the professional front, Jared Leto‘s movie Morbius, which was delayed by 7 months last month, was delayed again till January 21, 2022. In the upcoming movie, Biochemist Michael Morbius (Leto) tries to cure himself of a rare blood disease, but he inadvertently infects himself with a form of vampirism instead.
