Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club (2013)
Even off screen Leto stayed in character as Rayon, the fictional transgender business partner of real-life AIDS activist Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey). LGBT rights groups have criticized the filmmakers for inventing the character and for not casting a transgender actor. Accepting the Golden Globe on Jan. 12, 2014, Leto dedicated the prize ”to the Rayons of the world.”
