Jared Leto, Of All People, Thinks Supermodels Are Overpaid

Jared Leto seemingly has a bone to pick with America’s highest-earning supermodels. On Sunday, paparazzi snapped photos of Leto leaving the LAX airport in a pink hoodie that has supermodel’s names, like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, listed on the back alongside their salaries, according to Time magazine. The hoodie is part of a collection of merch for Leto’s band 30 Seconds to Mars.

At first glance, one can only assume Leto is using his musical platform to make a statement about overpaid models. But, upon further inspection, the sweatshirt also features the word “America” plastered across the hood, the name of his new album. In other shots, you can see a triangle with a cross shooting through it on the sweatshirt as well, which looks like some sort of quasi-Illuminati symbol—apparently, this is the band’s famous “triad” symbol. It’s hard to say if this is a commentary on the modeling industry, America, religion, money or all of the above.

Regardless, it’s hard to take Leto’s attempted “woke-ness” seriously when considering his own career. This is the same man who’s net worth sits somewhere between $40 and $90 million, according to sites like The Richest and Celebrity Net Worth. He’s no stranger to fashion, either. As a brand ambassador for Gucci, Leto is essentially paid to wear luxury goods on top of his already generous salary as an actor and musician.

Sorry, but if you’re a multi-millionaire who’s part of Alessandro Michele’s “Gucci Gang,” then I don’t want to hear your opinions on overpaid models (unless you plan to divest your money to a charity, or some greater noble cause).
