Jared Leto Uses MTV Movie Award Acceptance Speech to Talk AIDs

Jared Leto

Jared Leto won an MTV Movie Award for Best On Screen Transformation for his role as Rayon in ‘Dallas Buyers Club’.

Leto thanked his band, Thirty Seconds to Mars as well as actress Lupita Nyong’o, who presented him with the award. He also used his time to speak to comment on the battle against AIDs, and the right to love.

“We’ve made a lot of progress in the battle against AIDS, but it’s not time to celebrate just yet. There’s no cure, the epidemic rages on. But here’s to the hope that one day, we’ll put an end of this plague, and the world will rejoice, knowing that no one will ever have to suffer the indignation of this sickness again, nor the intolerance, the fear or the prejudice that lives alongside it. Love who you want to love, live how you wish to live and never let anyone ever stop you from turning your dreams into your reality.”
