Let's get this out of the way now: Jared Leto is the real life Benjamin Button. That's the only way we can explain the actor's transition from cutie Jordan Catalano on My So-Called Life to adolescent musician. Seriously. We can't figure out any other reason why a 40-year-old man would wear a mesh muscle top or ripped t-shirt in public.

We're not the only ones who have noticed Jared Leto's ridiculous fashion choices — GQ named the 30 Seconds to Mars front man their worst dressed man of 2011. "He's flaunted nipples through mesh shirts. He's worn skirts about as frequently as pants. He's rocked a mullet. He is the Worst-Dressed Man in the World," the magazine wrote. "Look, it's not that [he] doesn't try. He tries too damn hard."

They go on to describe Leto as "a man who can afford an Alexander McQueen suit… but opts for Ugg slippers and a couture snuggy."

Sadly, Leto's lack of style hasn't stopped him from landed a plum endorsement gig with Hugo Boss cologne.

"I think it is quite obvious why we picked him for this job – he is "just different!" the clothier said at the time. Leto also explained the pairing.

"The concept is all about seeing things differently, from new perspectives and turning the familiar on its head! Like the Hugo man I look for inspiration in everything around me and seek out unusual and unexpected things and experiences," he said of his advertising campaign.

Um, okay. However, we think GQ has the better way of explaining his appeal. "Leto's always the most wealthy-looking homeless person in the room."
