Alexis Arquette claims pre-transition fling with Jared Leto
This news might shock a few people who have followed Oscar-winner Jared Leto's journey this year. Transgender actress Alexis Arquette is alleging that she had sex with the actor before her surgery.
The secret was revealed during an interview with FrontiersLA.com in early August, but the story is just now gaining traction in the media.
Reporter Jackie Beat asked Alexis to reveal a secret. That's when The Wedding Singer actress dished a story that might shock a few people.
She replied, "I had sex with Jared Leto back when I was presenting as a male. And, yes, it's not only massive; it's like a Praetorian Guard's helmet."
The interview ended on that jaw-dropping note, so there was no follow-up to where or when the alleged incident occurred. Alexis, born Robert Arquette, began to make the transition from male to female 13 years ago. Her famous siblings include actors David, Rosanna and Patricia Arquette.
The 30 Seconds to Mars front man dated actress Cameron Diaz from 1999 until 2003. He then dated Scarlett Johansson from 2004 through 2005. It's unclear if the hookup occurred while Jared was dating one of the actresses or during a time he was single.
The Daily Mail reached out to Jared's reps, but did not get a response to the allegations. The Dallas Buyers Club star was in New York performing with his band on Tuesday night.
For anyone trying to imagine what a Praetorian Guard's helmet looks like, it was an ornate headpiece worn by the guards who protected the Roman emperors. It had a red Mohawk hairpiece on top with a ponytail draping in the back. Perhaps Alexis was comparing Jared's member to something very epic and colorful.
That description might make Jared an even bigger heartthrob.
