Q&A Jared Leto – Jane Magazine – March 2002
by Stephanie Trong
Jane: What kinds of things do you like to read?
JL: I’m always reading a few books at a time. I’ve been reading Ecology of Fear. It sounds scarier than it is. It’s actually just about the ecological history of Los Angeles. The Hiram Key, it’s about the pharaohs, the Freemasons and the discoveries of secret scrolls. A People’s History of the United States. And a collection of stories by Salinger. I read a lot of stuff on the Internet, too, because I consider most of that fiction.
Jane: What about your band, Thirty Seconds to Mars?
JL: About what? I don’t know anything about that? What is that?
Jane: Don’t you play guitar in it?
JL: I don’t have a band. I don’t know anything about that.
so like, when i first saw this TRich pic of Jared and Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States – i basically made a noise only audible to puppehs.
i went to a strange performing arts high school and this is the book they used to teach us about what the fuck happened to the US. it is literally one of the few history books of the united states i can get behind. not only because it’s goddamn truthful on shit but it’s written so beautifully.
like, i love it beyond and i highly recommend it. Jared Leto agrees.
