Actor-turned-30 Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto recently revealed the strangest gift he has ever received from a fan.
“Someone cut their ear off once and sent it to me, that was very strange. A whole ear. The Van Gogh move,” he told Xfm’s Phil Clifton. “The note just said, are you listening? I never knew who it was, who’s missing their ear out there. I poked a hole in it and wore it as a necklace!”
He jokingly added, “Just don’t put your entire body in a case and send it to us.”
On Tuesday, Leto tweeted a grotesque photo of the actual ear:
