Jared Leto just made history by scaling the Empire State Building, and he has the scars to prove it.
The Suicide Squad star took the daring trip up one of New York’s highest buildings this morning in order to promote the forthcoming Thirty Seconds To Mars tour.
Most celebrities simply tweet or post something on Instagram, but that clearly isn’t enough for the 51-year-old.
He calmly climbed above 1,200 feet and became the first person to do so legally.
However, the singer and actor should never be accused of not suffering for his craft, as he showed off a number of wounds on his hands after making his way back down.
‘I made it, I’m alive. I made it to the top,’ he proudly told the Today Show hosts upon returning to the ground.
‘I was just saying, I saw my mother in the window of the 80th floor, and that was a nice surprise.
Revealing the bloodied gashes on his hands, he continued: ‘It was very challenging, as you can see…
‘I was more excited than nervous, to tell you the truth. But I have to be honest, it was very, very hard. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be.
‘Just the endurance that it took, the stamina that it took, and it was very sharp.’
When asked why he decided to tackle the tourist attraction, Jared said: ‘I’ve always had a fascination with the Empire State Building.
‘It’s incredible. To watch the sun rise overlooking the city that’s meant so much to me. Ever since I was a kid, New York stood for the place that you went to make your dreams come true.
‘As a young kid, I wanted to be an artist, and New York was the place that you came to be an artist. And the Empire State Building was always that symbol for me.’
Thirty Seconds made news lately when they released their new album, their first in five years.
Spilling the beans on why it took so long for new music, the frontman said: ‘If I waited any longer, it would probably be difficult to get up on stage.
‘The thing that happens with music is – you can work on a song forever and as you grow and change, your choices would change.
‘A song is a never-ending process, so I try to think of an album as not just what you have to say, but what you have to say in a given amount of time and for us it’s usually a long time because we’re really slow.’
We can’t wait to see what Jared climbs to promote their next bit of news…
