Actor Jared Leto has once again caused a stir among his female admirers on Instagram, with a recent post showcasing his impressive physique. Despite being 51 years old, Leto continues to look fantastic, causing fans to inquire about his secret.
One Instagram user asked, "You look like a sculpture. What's the secret?" while another exclaimed, "Women, line up."
Leto's Healthy Habits: The Key to His Youthful Appearance
In 2016, Leto sat down with Rolling Stone magazine to discuss his youthful appearance.
When asked about his secret, Leto credited his plant-based diet and quality sleep. He stated, “It’s probably just down to sleep and diet. If you travel long haul a lot or don’t sleep much, it’s not going to last very long, that’s for sure,” he said at the time.
“I’m pretty healthy so I think that helps a lot. I’ve been that way for a long time – 20 solid years of eating vegetarian/vegan and taking care of myself. That probably helps the preservation process”.
However, Leto is not a strict vegan and admits to indulging in the occasional cheat. He humorously referred to himself as a "cheagan," a term for a cheating vegan, explaining, “I don’t eat meat ever. But if someone’s mom made a cookie and handed it to me, I’d probably take a bite, or if I’m in Alaska and there’s wild salmon out of the river, I’d probably eat it”.
In a recent interview with Men's Health, Leto was asked about the secret behind his timeless charm. To this, he replied with a cryptic answer, saying, "I do have a good answer for that, but I probably won't tell you. Just to keep everybody guessing.
Really, honestly, at the end of the day, it doesn't really matter."
The Power of Genetics
However, he did shed some light on the role of genetics in his aging process. Leto stated, "People started talking about my age and that sort of thing ten years ago.
As you get older, people start saying, 'Ah, you're still young.' And then there's this age where they go, 'Really?'" He went on to say that genetics certainly plays a significant role in his aging journey.
