The Atlantic Comes for Jared Leto's Method Acting




  • Article discusses a bit of the history of method acting and points out notable examples of method actors

  • Semi-shades Leo's tactics for The Revenant

  • Points out that women can't do half the shit Jared pulled without jeopardizing their careers

  • Also points out that when a woman "method acts," like Charlize Theron in Monster, she's praised for being "brave enough to not be beautiful," rather than actually for her acting or dedication to the role itself

  • Concludes that method acting in Hollywood today is just about ego and marketing, rather than actually giving good performances
