Has Jared Leto traded in his acting and singing chops for a gig as an elephant whisperer?
Judging from his latest photo shoot, the movie star and musician does have a flair for being one with the giant mammals.
The photos, taken by famed shutterbug Warwick Saint on home soil in South Africa, were for a spread in Flaunt magazine.
“Me + the elephant, by Warwick Saint,” Leto, 41, wrote on Twitter earlier this week, along with a link to the photos on his website.
According to Saint’s Facebook page, the photographer and his subject took a detour during their trip to bungee jump off the famous Bloukrans Bridge in the province of Western Cape.

Celebrity news reports that JARED LETO has now been reduced to skin and bones for his role in “Dallas Buyers’ Club.”
See the actor now:
Like his now-emaciated co-star, Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto has traded his toned abs for a role in “Dallas Buyers’ Club.” The actor and musician–and “Worst Dressed Man” in the world–also waxed his eyebrows, in addition to not eating for almost a month for the part of a transsexual.
Nonetheless, he was proud to show his thinning physique during a recent photo shoot with famed photographer, Terry Richardson.
He told Vulture of the scary weight loss:
“Your body goes through weird stages. Sometimes it’s hard to hold on to water. But for me, it’s not about the most weight I can lose, it’s more to represent the character.”
It appears the actor lost about the same weight as McConaughey, who shed about 30lbs before they started filming. But he thinks it’s not something to be worried about.
“Historically, people have done it for pursuit of self, to achieve a meditative state, so I’m hoping for that. It’s not necessarily a bad thing.”
