During the 43 minutes I have with Jared Leto in the front room of his estate I am not sure he can see me. He makes enough direct eye contact. His blue eyes glint beneath an oversized neon pink beanie hat and a full forest beard, engulfing a face that is unnervingly youthful for a 45-year-old. Sometimes, however, he glances to the side for long pauses. When he does so, his irises are glazed, like he has cataracts. His character in his latest film Blade Runner: 2049 is blind. Leto wore sight-limiting lenses for the shoot. Maybe he’s wearing them today to stay in character as promotion. It wouldn’t be beyond the realm of possibility.
