JARED LETO, MEDIA DARLING

Best supporting actor winner Jared Leto was a hit backstage with reporters, especially after he shared his moment — and his award — with everyone.

“The first person to give their Oscar away for an orgy in the pressroom,” a smiling Leto said as he passed the trophy around to everyone who wanted to have a moment with it.

“Who’s your favorite Oscar winner tonight?” he asked.

When Leto invited reporters to take selfies, he was cautioned by an Academy representative that no photography was allowed in that particular room.

“If you want to get media, let the media do what they do,” he replied, drawing cheers and applause.
