For his performance as the transgender AIDS patient Rayon in "Dallas Buyers Club," Jared Leto essentially became a different person for 25 days. He dropped more than 30 pounds, adopted a lilting accent and stayed in character for the entirety of the shoot, clacking around in high heels, short skirts and garish makeup. On Sunday, Leto won his first Oscar for the role, which marked the biggest transformation yet in a career marked by reinvention, and it also represented a return to roots for an actor who for several years was more likely to be found on stage with his rock band than in front of a camera.

In Cameron Diaz's latest comedy, “The Other Woman,” the 41-year-old plays a woman seeking revenge against her boyfriend after discovering he has a wife and a girlfriend. Tsk, tsk. In real life, Diaz says, infidelity unfortunately strikes us all. "Everybody has been cheated on, everyone will be cheated on,” she told Britain's OK! magazine (via the New York Daily News). “I can't fix that, I don't know how, I don't have any judgment on anybody, I don't know how to fix the problem.” The blond actress has dated high-profile celebrities including Jared Leto, Justin Timberlake and Alex Rodriguez.

Backstage at the Shrine Exposition Center was hopping Saturday night as the winners of the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards -- in very high spirits -- filtered through to chat with reporters. A sampling: -- "Would you guys like a rear view or a frontal?” That was Jared Leto being only mildly provocative. He wasn't actually offering to strip down but rather referring to his new statue -- which depicts, of course, a buff, nude man.

Men's red carpet hair rarely goes beyond a swipe of pomade and some texture, but Sunday night's Golden Globes proved that winners wear man buns. Both musician Alex Ebert and musician-actor Jared Leto, who took home the gold in their respective categories, were sporting the do. Leto, who didn't look a minute older than his days playing Jordan Catalano on "My So-Called Life," twisted his long locks into a twirly updo. Ebert pulled his long hair into a mop atop his head, even utilizing hair clips and pins to keep the somewhat unruly strands in place.

"If only Bradley [Cooper]'s arm was longer," Ellen DeGeneres wrote in her record-breaking Oscars tweet that contains arguably the most epic selfie in history. But could DeGeneres and friends have taken a better picture?
