What is it about being an actor that makes them look down on people who actually have to work for a living? I remember this Keanu Reeves facebook thing that was posted on here where he complains that all the people on their way to work don't "stop, relax, and just think about the moment". Like it never occurred to him that these people have to go to work, they can't all just take a few months off whenever they feel like it to go meditate or something.
there is no fucking way this really happened
Acting is more than just emoting on screen. You have to actually be a pleasure to work with and not mess up takes constantly. Basically keeping people happy and production costs down is more important than over acting and trying to win an Oscar. Even if you're a great actor on screen, having a "process" that means you're mean with the crew and require constant takes can mean the studio doesn't work with you again.
Does anyone feel bad for him. Hes like that cringey kid in middle school who thought he was popular but was just a spaz and was laughed at by everyone. Do you think he knows how pathetic this is but is locked in by a contract and just has to lean into it and hope its over soon?
>that feel when I saw 30STM twelve years ago and met Jared Leto backstage
>he seemed like a solid dude
>mfw reading this shit
I regret that I don't know the source of the (questionable) anecdote, but my father claims to have once heard Roseanne Barr tell a story about actors (in an interview, stand-up, somewhere on TV), and acting culture, Roseanne's thing goes somewhat like this, according to dad:
"I hear all the time actors saying, "oh we work so hard, people have no idea, wah." I'm an actress myself, I know what it is. You know who works hard? The Amish. We spend a few months on something and then go relax somewhere. Actors don't have a concept of the meaning of work, and that takes into account the emotional stuff. Actors are not hard-working people."
my paraphrase of dad's paraphrase, FWIW.
There's actually real ones? I thought you guys were just memeing
I love the MOM'S GONNA FREAK meme and you can't stop me.
I feel like joker will be the worst part of that movie. But it will be mildly succesful by capeshit standards and spawn at least one sequel and probably a spinoff featuring joker and quinn
I JUST SMOKED A FULL CIGARETTE IN THE TOILETS! I'M SO HIGH RIGHT NOW, SO PARANOID, I'M GONNA FREAK!
That's nice, except your thing is stupid because it doesn't disturb mine. You could replace the word "Amish" with "slaves' and the above anecdote (historically true or not) would have the same rhetorical thrust.
If, on the other hand, you had actually wanted to somehow meaningfully push back on my thing, you could have said something like "actors work harder than you think, because xyz".
MOM SAID TO GET 2% MILK BUT I GOT 1% INSTEAD. SHE'S GONNA BLOW A GASKET
Funny thing is, we all knew a guy like that back in highschool. The one who had an abusive step father and would do all sorts of wacky shit to prove he's cool, getting into fights he had no way of winning, acting edgy in class and experimenting with new things all the time.
He was a good friend.

SUM REPEATING NUMERICALS AT THE END OF A CROATIAN BDSM NEWSLETTER POST?
Heather ledger role as the joker was iconic i guess they think they have to go overboard shilling the new joker to make sure he lands with audiences
But the way they're going about it is mind boggling it's like some exex told Leto and his co-stars to make it seem like Leto was in character as much as possible and somehow they interpreted this as being a 14 year old Christian metal Fan trying to be edgy
More than likely though this is just leto thInking is what character acting is
BUT I POOP IN THERE
Unless you are a superstar the film industry is more of a burnout-industry. I can tell you from experience, and i don't just mean crews or actors, directors often need psychological help after projects. Unless you are at the top of the top, which is still a very demanding job, you are going to get fucked by this industry, barely earn any money and are without job for various months of the year, having to prostitute yourself to job market because there is so much competition.
>I can tell you from experience, and i don't just mean crews or actors, directors often need psychological help after projects
Show me a single source that supports that
You mean like all the actors going mentally ill, falling into drug addiction and so on because they can't handle it? And that Crews have unbelievable working hours, and have to jump from one project to the next, in the hope to make steps up the ladder ain't a secret either. And directors being under so much stress because production in one hell of a bitch and execution is never with atleast one fuck up that puts the whole thing at danger.
But let me google for you.
Pic related was the best joker, no others can compete.
>You mean like all the actors going mentally ill, falling into drug addiction and so on because they can't handle it?
Working in an industry that America puts on a golden pedestal as well as being paid huge sums of money...yeah no shit you're probably gonna fall into drug addiction.
>Leto thinking he will ever be the ultimate Joker
>I remember this Keanu Reeves facebook thing that was posted on here where he complains that all the people on their way to work don't "stop, relax, and just think about the moment"
iirc that facebook page is bogus and doesn't have anything to do with the real Keanu Reeves
>Jared Leto: "My wife now calls me pudding during sex"
>Jared Leto: "I feel the warp overtaking me"
>Jared Leto: "I'm starting to talk to my own reflection:
>Jared Leto: "I am growing stronger"
>Jared Leto: "I feel the Joker inside me, I want to cut him out"
>Jared Leto was found dead in his hotel room this morning. It appears he stabbed himself several times and wrote "I'm free" in his own blood
>It has been 3 weeks since the death of acclaimed actor Jared Leto and people are still coming forward claiming to have spotted the star in several cities across the United States
Another hallucination caused by one of her freakouts I imagine, I can't imagine him being alive. Even if she didnt pull the plug, the doctor said he had suffered massive brain damage
>Jared Leto: "I feel the warp overtaking me"
IT IS A GOOD PAIN
fuck i'm crying laughing
Jaden Smith is the key to all of this
>Leto reported "taking a pretty deep dive into the character" but couldn't have done it any other way"
>He says he listened to 1920s gospel music and read books about shamans to help him get into character
>"I always get the sense the joker may be much older than people think. It's something different. If you don't break rules, you're not going to strike new ground. I think I'll be cooling down for the rest of my life"
actually it's mostly irrelevant as long as you're not a complete ass, the main criteria for acting is being a box office draw, if you get plebs in the cinema they don't care if you're a shit actor who messes up takes
