Jared Leto doesn't believe ''people like him'' win Oscars.

The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman has been tipped for Academy Awards success for his role in 'Dallas Buyers Club' - in which he plays a transsexual AIDS sufferer opposite Matthew Mcconaughey and Jennifer Garner - but he doesn't expect to receive one of the prestigious accolades.

He said: ''It's nuts. They don't give Oscars to people like me!''

The movie marks the 41-year-old star's first acting role since 2009's 'Mr. Nobody' and Jared joked he was amazed he could still act.

He told E! News: ''I hadn't made a film in so long, I'm lucky I remembered how to act, to tell you the truth.

''I just dove in deep and did that best that I could.''

Despite his modesty, Jared is proud of the movie and the Oscar buzz it has generated.

He said: ''It's surreal. It's so great. I'll tell you what - anybody that has anything negative to say about the process needs to see a doctor. There are much worse things to do than have your film supported and celebrated.''
