Jared Leto - Jared Leto to take another acting break

Jared Leto wants to take another break from acting.

The 42-year-old star quit the big screen over half a decade ago to focus on his music career with his band 30 Seconds to Mars and made a comeback this year playing Rayon - a transgender AIDS patient - in 'Dallas Buyers Club', but he's now considering going on another hiatus for ''five or six years''.

He said: ''I'm ready to take another five or six years. If it means coming back with this kind of opportunity and this kind of work ... and this really important story and this tiny little film that we shot in 25 days with no lights, no rehearsal, low-budget film. It's a miracle that it even got made. It took 20 years to get to the screen. So I feel really fortunate. It had been almost six years since I made a movie and I've been touring with 30 Seconds to Mars and still am touring with 30 Seconds to Mars so we'll see what happens next.''

Leto is in the running for the Best Supporting Actor prize at the Oscar Awards for his remarkable performance opposite Matthew McConaughey in the gripping biopic and, although he admits he's not bothered if he wins, he believes it would be nice for his family and co-stars.

He explained to RTÉ Ten: ''I've never pined for awards but it's really nice when you get them, not just for me but for your friends and your family and the people that you've worked with and for audiences that have supported you so it becomes a really a time of joy but I think it's nice to celebrate your peers.''
