Jared Leto doesn't believe "people like him" win Oscars.
The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman has been tipped for Academy Awards success for his role in 'Dallas Buyers Club' - in which he plays a transsexual AIDS sufferer opposite Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner - but he doesn't expect to receive one of the prestigious accolades.
He said: "It's nuts. They don't give Oscars to people like me!"
The movie marks the 41-year-old star's first acting role since 2009's 'Mr. Nobody' and Jared joked he was amazed he could still act.
He told E! News: "I hadn't made a film in so long, I'm lucky I remembered how to act, to tell you the truth.
"I just dove in deep and did that best that I could."
Despite his modesty, Jared is proud of the movie and the Oscar buzz it has generated.
He said: "It's surreal. It's so great. I'll tell you what - anybody that has anything negative to say about the process needs to see a doctor. There are much worse things to do than have your film supported and celebrated."
