Jared Leto paid tribute to his mother Constance Leto as he shared a 1971 snap of her pregnant on his 50th birthday on Sunday. “Me and my mother in Louisiana,” the My So-Called Life heartthrob wrote in the caption. “Born at 2:36 PM Central Time 1971. She made the dress herself. From old draperies.”
The 70-year-old photographer was only 20 when she and her late ex-husband Anthony Bryant welcomed Jared, and after their divorce, he and his big brother Shannon were adopted by her second husband Carl Leto, according to DailyMail. “Thank you for teaching me to dream,” Leto penned on Mother’s Day in May. “My mother crawled out of the muddy banks of Mississippi with a fistful of food stamps in one hand and two kids in the other on a mission to make a better life for herself and for her kids.”
The Justice League action star was last seen with the silver-haired matriarch at the Manhattan premiere of his film House of Gucci at Lincoln Center on November 16. Earlier on Sunday, Jared reposted a 2019 shirtless picture of himself holding a slice of rainbow cake on the set of Morbius captioned, “Thx for all the bday wishes!” And in honor of Christmas on Saturday, Leto reposted a 2020 unbuttoned picture of himself rocking a Santa Claus hat captioned, ‘Merry Xmas!’
The avid mountain climber will next star as biochemist-turned-vampire Dr. Michael Morbius in Daniel Espinosa’s long-delayed superhero flick Morbius, which exclusively hits US/UK theaters on January 28. The PG-13 Marvel/SSMU movie, which wrapped reshoots in February, also includes Michael Keaton, Matt Smith, Jared Harris, Tyrese Gibson, Adria Arjona, and Al Madrigal.
