Today In Things We Can't Relate To, Jared Leto Thinks Someone Stole His Head

“If anyone out there finds it, bring it in to your nearest Gucci store”

Today on the internet, a GQ interview with Jared Leto has made headlines because of some particularly attention-grabbing comments made by the Suicide Squad actor.

The publication spoke with Leto about his relationship with Gucci, and his ability to make over-the-top outfit choices appear “tactile”.

“Well, I was born in Louisiana, so that probably balances out any chance of getting too regal, but I have a lot of help from the Gucci team,” he told GQ.

“They’re an incredible group of people. So talented, so gifted. I feel really fortunate to work with Alessandro and this motley crew of artists and craftspeople that he’s put together.”

Naturally, the conversation turned to his bold outfit for the 2019 Met Gala soon after. In case you’ve since forgotten, the 47-year-old wore an embellished red number and carried a replica of his own head at the event.

Leto mentioned that since May, the (frankly, quite terrifying) accessory he brought along with him has gone missing.

When the magazine asked him what he did with his head (what a sentence) he replied:

“Honestly, I have no idea. I think someone may have stolen it. If anyone out there finds it, bring it into your nearest Gucci store in exchange for a pair of dirty sneakers.”

While this is obviously a joke and we’re imagining there are few people who would want to steal a bust of Jared Leto, The Cut has pointed out that it’s not exactly a cheap trinket.

According to the outlet, Gucci dropped somewhere around €25,000 (AUD 40,600) on the fake Leto head. The piece was created by Italian special effects team Makinarium, and might just be one of the strangest ways to spend forty grand, ever.

Here’s hoping Leto gets his head back in his hands soon.

Naomi Campbell Fighting Grubs On A Plane Will Give You Life

Well, that was unexpected.

When I think of relatable celebrities, names like Kristen Bell, Mindy Kaling, or Tom Hanks come to mind.

You know, the kinds of celebs that while being uber-talented, and beautiful, and rich, still come across as approachable. In some extraordinary universe, maybe they’d even have a coffee with you; a fellow human. And they wouldn’t judge you for wearing shoes from two seasons ago, either.

One celebrity I would never consider relatable is Naomi Campbell.

Campbell is one of the five “original” supermodels. At 49 years old she looks hotter than most 25-year-olds, despite “never dieting” and “never working out”. And her toothbrush is probably worth more than your car*.

*I made that up, but who knows…

In a rare move from the model, however, we’ve been treated to some insight into her personal life. The supermodel uploaded a video to YouTube this week, showcasing her regular travel routine.

While the majority of her experience is grossly unattainable, there were elements that were surprisingly normal…well, kind of.

“I love being in the air. I love being everywhere yet nowhere at the same time.”

OMG me too, Naomi!

Wearing a casual silk Burberry two-piece (her outfit apparently cost a cool 8,550 AUD), one of Campbell’s first stops is a duty-free store so she can stock up on Twix.

“You know what? I’m getting this, and I don’t care,” she says.

Treat yourself, love! Twix bars are delicious.

She then takes us through her flight routine, where she busts out a packet of Dettol wipes and cleans anything her skin might come into contact with – all while wearing gloves, of course.

“Clean anything you touch,” she says in the video.

“Anything you could possibly touch.”

After what seems like six hours of wiping – which I’d be willing to bet drove other first-class passengers to do the same – she tells the camera:

“I do not care what people think of me. It’s my health.”  

I’m personally just impressed to see that she is cleaning the seat herself, rather than asking her assistant to do it.

The last step in her routine? A protective mask to keep germs at bay.

“I just can’t. This is my protection from people’s coughing and sneezing.”

I get it, Naomi. People are gross.

The video has naturally gone viral, with fans all-over lapping up the lesson in travel etiquette à la Campbell.

The biggest lesson from all of this, however, is that if first-class flyers are *this* worried about germs, we economy travellers have no hope.

Jenny Slate Is Divorcing Her Opinion Of Herself From Her Relationships With Men, And We Need To Do The Same

She's more than Captain America's ex-girlfriend.

Jenny Slate sat down with Christene Barberich of Refinery29 this week to chat about the time her life fell apart.

The discussion, which was hosted on the outlet’s UnStyled podcast, hinged off the past five years of Slate’s life and the change she’s experienced in that time.

“…from age 32 to 37, have been the best years of my life, the hardest years I’ve had so far,” she said in the interview.

“I had a lot of disruption in my personal life.”

During the five years Slate touched on, the entertainer and writer experienced the breakdown of two relationships. The first with her ex-husband Dean Fleischer-Camp and the second with Chris Evans (which we’re guessing you already know about).

In the interview, she spoke about the realisation that although she felt “so clear” and “really strong” in areas like her work, and her passion for reproductive or social justice, she at times didn’t like the person she was.

“My personal relationships could be very unhealthy,” she said.

“I just felt that my life fell apart, I felt like everything was in pieces, and I felt despair.”

The takeaway from the whole messy experience, she shared, was the lesson that she needed to work on the way she saw herself.

 “I really needed to figure out what I thought about myself when a man was not defining that for me,” she said.

It’s a powerful quote, I think. Not just because this is something that many of us do – measure our self-esteem based on the ‘approval’ of our love interests – but because I think it’s largely what we’ve been doing to Slate since her attachment to Chris Evans.

The actress, comedian and author has performed in productions like Venom and The Secret Life Of Pets. She’s appeared in TV shows like Big Mouth and Parks and Rec. She’s penned books and a short film. She’s even won a handful of awards for her work.

Oh, hey Mona-Lisa.

And yet, she’s still often seen as the ex-girlfriend of Captain America. 

Earlier this month, Slate spoke at a graduation ceremony for a tiny schoolhouse in Massachusetts where one student was completing school. It was a sweet act, and many praised her for it. Some listed it just another reason why Chris Evans must have dated her.

Sure, I get that people get excited about celebrity couples. Yes, I know that they were adorable. And, okay, it’s understandable that after his gig within the Marvel Universe, more people are likely to discover Slate through Evans.

But it’s been over a year since they split, guys. Both parties have moved on in one way or another. And she’s an intelligent, talented woman who deserves your interest irrespective of some guy she once dated.
