The actor jumped into the crowd while performing with his band, 30 Seconds to Mars
It’s a tough break for Jared Leto: The actor broke his nose at a recent concert by his band, 30 Seconds to Mars.
Leto, 35, was performing in El Paso, Texas, on Thursday when he ran into the crowd and was rushed by fans, a spokesperson for the band’s record label tells MTV News.
The Chapter 27 star also hurt his foot and suffered minor injuries to his face and body.
According to MTV, Leto finished the show and even called it one of the best of the tour, but ultimately checked into a hospital to make sure he wouldn’t need surgery for any of his injuries.
30 Seconds to Mars were performing as part of the Taste of Chaos tour, which also features bands including The Used and Senses Fail.
“I’ve been producing shows for 25 years and this was one of the scariest moments I have witnessed,” tour organizer Kevin Lyman said of the melee in a statement. “We hope Jared’s injuries are all minor and that he has a speedy recovery.”
This apparently isn’t Leto’s first 30 Seconds to Mars-related scuffle: Elijah Wood said recently that Leto grabbed him in October at an MTV event because he was offended by remarks Wood made about his band to Blender magazine.
“He was basically upset at the fact that I said I didn’t like his band,” Wood told Jane in its February issue. “He said that initially and then walked away. I guess he thought I was laughing at him, but I was more shell-shocked and telling people around me, ‘Whoa, I just got told off by Jared Leto for not liking his band.’ And that’s when he came back and grabbed me.”
