  • -My first guest is an Oscar winner starring

  • alongside Denzel Washington and Rami Malek

  • in the new thriller "The Little Things,"

  • which will be in theaters Friday, January 29th,

  • and available on HBO Max.

  • Here is my man Jared Leto!

  • That's what I'm talkin' about. Yes!

  • Welcome back. -Thank you.

  • The applause is deafening. -Thank you.

  • They multiply it when we air the show.

  • It sounds like there's five people doing this.

  • -Oh, five people? Oh, nice. That feels so good.

  • Just feels so good to be home.

  • -[ Laughs ] Can you believe this?

  • The last time I saw you was at the Met Gala.

  • The big Met Gala in 2019. -Yeah.

  • -That was the last time we saw each other.

  • And it was -- I couldn't believe --

  • I thought I've seen you since then, but I guess not.

  • But it was very memorable for me because, you know,

  • these Met Galas are giant and everyone gets dressed up.

  • And all the money goes to a good cause, you know,

  • and all that stuff, for the Met Museum --

  • Metropolitan Museum of Art. But everyone's dressed up.

  • I think the theme of the night was camp,

  • and you carried around your own head.

  • Uh, we have a couple of photos.

  • Can we take a look back a couple years ago?

  • Look. This is unbelievable. It was -- [ Laughs ]

  • It was -- Yo. My G--

  • What -- What was the inspiration?

  • Do you remember coming out and going like,

  • "Yeah, I'm gonna do this"?

  • -I think there might be picture of you and I,

  • or maybe you with my head -- I'm not sure --

  • somewhere from that night.

  • -Do we have one? Oh, yeah. That's me, you, and your head.

  • -♪ Just the three of us

  • -Oh, yeah. Then I pulled that move, which was even weirder.

  • I've kind of put your head where my head is.

  • -[ Laughter ] -It was so fun that night.

  • Everyone was holding -- -Yeah, it was a blast.

  • I remember I walked out of the hotel,

  • and there were all throngs of people,

  • like, kind of greeting folks as they left the hotel.

  • And I walked through the hotel, and for some reason,

  • just held the head up to the crowd, and they just roared.

  • And I thought, "This is so strange."

  • I don't know what, you know -- I don't know what it was,

  • but it was just a weird -- It was a very weird thing,

  • but a very fun thing, too.

  • -You know, I thought about you. I wanted to reach out to you.

  • But I figured everyone was probably reaching out to you.

  • When the quarantine first began --

  • and you probably know what I'm about to say --

  • I couldn't imagine this happening to me or to anyone.

  • But you didn't even know that everything had been shut down.

  • You were on a retreat. Is this true?

  • -Absolutely true, yeah.

  • It's like a two-week, roughly two-week silent meditation.

  • The idea is that you go away. You get rid of your phone.

  • You get rid of distractions.

  • You get rid of everything. And you just meditate.

  • And when I went away, there were about 150 cases.

  • Uh, and just in that short amount of time,

  • when I came out, it was shut down,

  • a state of emergency, uh, and the whole world had changed.

  • But when we're in there, they didn't tell us.

  • So we didn't have our phones. There was no talking, of course.

  • -No TV. -No eye contact. No TV.

  • Um, and the teachers didn't really --

  • They made a decision. "Let's not disturb the participants."

  • -Oh, my goodness. -And I didn't turn on my phone

  • until I went back to LA.

  • So, I drove the whole way,

  • you know, trying to be, like, peaceful and zen.

  • Keep the feeling going.

  • And I got back, and I was, you know, kind of shocked.

  • It was like Rip Van Winkle.

  • -I mean, it's like a "Twilight Zone" episode,

  • but in real life. -Yeah, it was shocking.

  • It was a great -- I had this great tool

  • to kind of deal with "stress" and things in life,

  • but I don't think anything can quite prepare any of us

  • for what we all went through at the beginning.

  • -No. Oh, my goodness. No way. But I thought of you.

  • I go, "Oh, my goodness. I can't wait to talk to you about that."

  • Because that sounds like the most bizarre story.

  • -Yeah, it was like coming out to the zombie apocalypse.

  • -Yeah, I got to say you knocked it out of the park

  • for "The Little Things,"

  • which is coming out this Friday in theaters and on HBO Max.

  • You did it great. This is so good.

  • Dude, you're so --

  • The whole movie, I'm just going like,

  • "Oh, no. Whoa. This guy's so creepy, man."

  • It didn't even look like you. Was that -- You had a fake nose?

  • -I had a lot of stuff going on. Yeah, it was --

  • First of all, I had an opportunity to work

  • with Denzel Washington, one of my heroes.

  • For me, he's like Brando and Beethoven.

  • -What was that like?

  • -He's just -- He's just, you know --

  • He's the GOAT. He's the king.

  • And, yeah, it was a whole transformation.

  • I had different -- had brown eyes, a different nose,

  • different teeth, a different way of walking and talking,

  • and it was just this super-immersive character.

  • -How do we describe the movie and who you play in the movie?

  • It's great.

  • -Well, the name says a lot. I play a guy named Albert Sparma.

  • And right from the name, you can tell

  • he's a little different and a bit of an outsider.

  • But I found him to be really funny.

  • He had a pretty crazy sense of humor.

  • It was a special one. Something really special about this.

  • With Rami Malek and Denzel -- just to get in the ring

  • with those two guys was -- I felt really, really fortunate.

  • -I want to show a clip. Here is Jared Leto

  • and Denzel Washington in "The Little Things."

  • Take a look at this.

  • -I saw the "for sale" sign.

  • -That was for another car.

  • -Got a lot of miles on it. You a -- You a salesman?

  • -[ Scoffs ] No.

  • -How's the trunk space?

  • -Standard.

  • -Mind if I take a look?

  • I'm in the market.

  • -It's not for sale.

  • -All I need to do is take a look.

  • -You must really like my car.

  • -I do. -[ Chuckles ]

  • -Jared Leto, everybody.

  • "The Little Things" will be in theaters this Friday

  • and available on HBO Max.

-My first guest is an Oscar winner starring
