After this year's Academy Awards are handed out on March 2, it's very likely that we'll be saying, "Jared Leto: Oscar winner." The actor-slash-singer's turn as an HIV-positive, transgender woman in Dallas Buyers Club has earned him a Best Supporting Actor nod, as well as wins at this year's Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards, among other accolades. It's one of many roles over the course of his 20-year career in which he alters his pretty-boy appearance, as if he can't get enough distance between himself and his breakthrough role as teen heartthrob Jordan Catalano on the short-lived, cult TV series My So-Called Life. From a porky celebrity-stalker/killer to a yuppie beaten to a bloody pulp, Leto clearly gravitates towards roles that drastically alter his appearance.—Katy Kroll
