Jared Leto Doubts Hollywood is Ready for Gay Lead Actor
Actor Jared Leto says Hollywood is still not 'gay friendly' and may not give as many opportunities to a gay lead as it would to a straight one.

The 44-year-old actor said he would totally accept a gay leading man, but thinks the industry will not react in the same way, reported Entertainment Weekly.

"I definitely don't think a gay leading man would have the same opportunities as a straight leading man. I don't think that. Not for a single second. I don't know if that's offensive or not, but that's my thought right now," Jared said.

"It shouldn't be that way. I don't think you'll have as many opportunities. And I think you could say the same for minorities. What a word, 'minority.' Have we taken that word off the list yet? Because it should be. Anyway, no, I think that this is still a very conservative business."

The actor, who won a best Supporting Actor Oscar for playing a transgender woman in Dallas Buyers Club,also shared his thoughts on his own masculinity.
