Jared Leto Gives Best Acceptance Speech Ever At 2014 Oscars

By talking about everyone but himself, Jared Leto reminded us there is always enough time to be thankful, thoughtful, and empathetic.
Jared Leto Gives Best Acceptance Speech Ever at Oscars 2014 #Oscars2014

He's a hottie, despite the weird long hair, but what really made Jared Leto a standout last night was his beautiful acceptance speech upon winning the Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Dallas Buyer's Club.

He started with a story about a single mother who defied the odds and raised two successful boys (his own mother), moved on to speak directly to the "dreamers in places like Ukraine and Venezuela," who are in the midst of turmoil, then he wrapped up with beautiful, empathetic words for "those who suffer injustice because of who they are or who they love."

In other words, he talked about everyone but himself.
