Jared Leto: 'I've never made money from films'

Jared Leto has claimed that he has "never made money" from movies.

The US star has enjoyed a sporadic yet successful career in film whilst also singing in rock group 30 Seconds to Mars.

He won the Supporting Actor prize at last year's Oscars for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

However, Leto told Billboard that he hasn't made money from being in films yet.

"[I have more skill as a musician because] I've been onstage more hours than I've been in front of a camera.

"I've never made money from films. It's a challenge to make money from music these days - that's one of the reasons I've been really entrepreneurial."

Leto meanwhile is due to play the role of the Joker in upcoming film Suicide Squad, which is slated for an August 2016 release.
