Jared Leto kept his fans on the edge of their seats as he bungee jumped on stage at his band Thirty Seconds to Mars’ ACL Festival on Saturday.
The 51-year-old Oscar winner showed incredible bravery and dexterity by jumping from the top of a scaffold to begin the band’s performance at the musical in Austin, Texas.
Dressed in a white motorcycle suit and plenty of safety pads, the ‘Closer to the Edge’ hitmaker flew through the air from a dizzying height as the crowd cheered him on.
He also posted a terrifying video of the bungee jump on his Instagram account, where he can be seen waving his arms to the crowd before taking the plunge.
‘Can you do it?’ @aclfestival,” Jared’s comment read.
Jared’s jump was the second time he had wowed the audience with such a stunning move, as he opened the first weekend of the festival with the lady trick.
The handsome actor is known to be a bit of a thrill-seeker, as he was spotted climbing the side of a brick building in New York City without using a seat belt last month. In June, he committed the same act in a Berlin hotel.
Jared’s musical stunt in Austin comes as 30 Seconds to Mars are on their way to promote the release of their sixth studio album, It’s the End of the World But It’s a Beautiful Day.
The album was released on September 15, 2023.
The band, formed in 1998, currently consists of Jared on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, his brother Shannon Leto on drums, and Tomo Milicevic on lead guitar and keyboards.
When he’s not glamorizing and doing rock star stunts like bungee jumping on stage, Jared focuses on his acting.
He recently starred in the Disney film Haunted Mansion, playing the character Hatbox Ghost.
Before that, Jared starred in Morbius as Michael Morbius, as well as Paolo Gucci in House of Gucci.
In 2014, Jared took Hollywood by storm by winning an Oscar for his stunning transformation into a transgender AIDS patient named Rayon in Dallas Buyer’s Club.
The Oscar not only celebrated his amazing acting, but also pushed for more diverse storytelling in Tinseltown.
Next up for the Oscar winner is the sci-fi Tron sequel, called Tron: Ares, which is scheduled to be released in 2025.
