Actor Jared Leto struck out when he asked a female friend to help him ask for two models’ phone numbers at a New York Fashion Week bash.

The Oscar-nominated Dallas Buyers Club star, was chatting with and “twirling around” the models at Guess’ On the Road to Nashville party on Tuesday night, the New York Post reports.

After the dancing stopped, rather than approaching the ladies himself, Leto sent his friend over to get their numbers. But, to his surprise “They said no,” a source said.

Lesson to be learned, never have someone else do your dirty work for you.

Leto’s Fashion Week experience hasn’t been going smoothly. Yesterday (February 12, 2014), he was 35 minutes late to Jeremy Scott’s showing and looked sheepish as he was escorted in by fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone.

Rather than sit down quietly to take in the Fall/Winter 14 line, Jared stood up and announced enthusiastically: “My apologies! You all look lovely!”

That is some surprisingly bad form from Jared. I’m sure he’ll do something adorable in no time to make up for it in no time.
