Jared Leto on the cover on W Magazine

Ever since Jared Leto took on the role of the Joker, people have been in full-Leto backlash. They don’t like his acting, they don’t like his band, and they especially hate his fashion sense. I would have thought that there would be at least some residual love for Jordan Catalano, but alas, we are all incredibly fickle and poor Jared is on the ban list.

This doesn’t help. There’s just something about it that’s not coming together. I think it’s the beard. Jared Leto is a very good looking man (those eyes!), but there’s something so odd about this very fashion forward clothing mixed with that amount of facial hair. It screams LOOK AT ME but actually.. DON’T LOOK AT ME. The beard hides the face but the clothing says I would like to continue to be in the spotlight.

Am I right about this? Do you have a different take on what Jared is trying to do?
