Jared Leto Has Already Damaged His Oscar

Oscars 2014
All you need to know about 2014's Academy Awards.
Well, that’s one way to celebrate a win.

Jared Leto, who snagged the Best Supporting Actor Oscar at this year’s Academy Awards ceremony, has already damaged his oscar just days after receiving the much-coveted golden statuette. In fact, the Dallas Buyers Club star says he dinged it up pretty badly just hours after the show.

“I was letting some of the people that I work with take a picture with the Oscar and I was carrying it down the stairs and, boom, I hit it against the stairs, the railing and I put a little nick in the back of it,” Leto revealed to Canada’s Entertainment Tonight. “So, you know, that’s how it goes. It’s already lived in, as they say.”

But don’t worry, the 42-year-old has since been keeping his new award in the safest place he can think of: his kitchen.

“The Oscar is sitting in my kitchen, guarded by some vegan butter and a bag of popcorn,” Leto said. “You know, they kind of end up in the kitchen because that’s the first place that I go when I get home. You put your keys down and you take off your jacket … and you put your Oscar in the kitchen.”
