Will the REAL Jared Leto Please Stand Up?

One of the us always speaks with an Italian accent, and the other always sounds like Super Mario.

This has been something of a confusing evening for Jared Leto fans and/or haters everywhere (and you almost assuredly fall into one of those two camps). He's a regular at the Met Gala, so it's only natural that eagle-eyed watchers would be keen to spot him on the red carpet the first Monday in May.
