Leto slims down for movie role

Jared Leto has recorded his extreme weight loss for his latest movie role

Jared Leto has revealed an emaciated frame for his role as a HIV sufferer in The Dallas Buyers Club.

The actor slimmed down to play a cross-dresser in the film, about an Aids victim - played by Matthew McConaughey - who expands his life expectancy by smuggling medication into the US.

Jared enlisted photographer Terry Richardson to record his weight loss in a photo shoot, with the Alexander star stripping off to show his visible rib cage and sunken cheeks.

It will be the first time Jared has appeared on the silver screen since 2009's Mr Nobody, as he has been focusing on his other role as frontman of rock band 30 Seconds To Mars.

The film has been shooting in New Orleans.
