Since he was in his early twenties and the public eye, Jared Leto has never been without a girlfriend. But as his popularity has grown, the 50-year-old has become more private. He used to be photographed by photographers and paparazzi in bars and on the streets. Now, he likes to keep his attention on his roles.
Leto has never been married, and as far as anyone knows, he has never even come close to doing so. So, who has the actor from “Requiem for a Dream” dated in his almost 30 years in Hollywood?
Jared Leto’s Current Love Interest Valery Kaufman
It was first said in June 2015 that Leto and Kaufman were an item. Pop Sugar says that since then, they have been together on and off. Kaufman did not get famous because of Leto, though. The tall, thin Dolce & Gabbana model was born and raised in Moscow. She was known all over the world long before she started dating Leto.
If you look at Kaufman’s Models.com bio, you can see that the 5’10” Instagram influencer has been on many runways. She has also been on the covers of Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and different international issues of Vogue.
Even though Leto tries to keep his personal life hidden from the public, he and Kaufman are sometimes seen together. After being photographed together for the first time in 2015, the couple has been seen out to lunch in 2017 and at a rock climbing gym in 2018.
Leto and Kaufman were seen rock climbing in Malibu not too long ago. Then, in 2020, they were seen shopping for gourmet food at the popular Joan’s on Third in New York City with Leto’s mother, Constance.
In 1971, the day after Christmas, Jared Joseph Bryant was born in Bossier City, Louisiana. In his 2014 Oscar acceptance speech, the now-50-year-old actor said that he and his older brother, Shannon, were raised in a series of hippie communes by a single mother who taught them how to dream.
In 1992, Leto moved to Los Angeles, where he planned to work in music and act on the side. IMDb says that he was in a few TV shows, such as Rebel Highway and Almost Home. Then, in 1994, he got the lead role on My So-Called Life as the charming slacker Jordan Catalano.
Leto’s dedication to “method” acting, which was developed by Stanislavski, has hurt his health more than once. The Wrap says that the 5’11” actor lost almost 30 pounds for the role he played in the 2000 movie Requiem For a Dream. Before making Chapter 27 in 2007, he gained almost 70 pounds. Leto lost 30 pounds quickly so that he could win an Oscar for his role as Rayon in the 2013 movie Dallas Buyers Club.
Jared Leto’s History With Famous Women
Even though Leto has tried to keep his love life quiet, it has changed as much as his hairstyles. In 1991, it was said that the actor was seeing Soleil Moon Frye, who played Punky Brewster. From 1999 to 2003, Leto was seen a lot with Cameron Diaz, who was also an actor. The Suicide Squad actor started dating Scarlett Johansson a year after that relationship ended. Johansson later told Pop Sugar that Leto was “forever unavailable.”
Ashley Olsen, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Lydia Hearst, Isabel Lucas, and Nina Senicar have all been romantically linked to Leto. Before he started dating Kaufman, Leto was also seen with Lupita Nyong’o, Chloe Bartoli, Katy Perry, and Miley Cyrus.

Jared Leto is a rock star in the acting world. Both people respect and criticize him for how good he is at acting. Even though most of Leto’s fans can easily name their favorite Leto movies and the most popular songs from his 30 Seconds to Mars albums, they might not realize just how successful Leto is.
People who like movies might be able to guess how much Jared Leto is worth based on his music and acting careers. But the 50-year-old is also a smart investor in new companies, including big names like Uber and Spotify. So, he has a much bigger net worth than you think.
Jared Leto’s Fans Include the Leaders of Many Thriving Silicon Valley Startups
When he started acting in the movie My So-Called Life in 1994, no one knew that Leto would become a Hollywood star. The Louisiana native was born to act, but everyone agrees that he works hard to improve his skills. With movies like Fight Club (1999), Dallas Buyers Club (2013), and Requiem for a Dream (2000) getting good reviews, it was clear that Leto was going to be more than a one-hit-wonder.
Leto and his brother started the band 30 Seconds to Mars, which has also won a few MTV Awards. Leto’s wealth has grown over the years because he has a second creative outlet besides acting, which is already very successful for him.
On his Crunchbase profile, the smart startup investor lists 30 companies that he has invested in. Over the last ten years, Leto has given money to more than 50 companies, many of which have become well-known brands. Slack, Spotify, Uber, Airbnb, and Reddit are some of his best investments. CNBC says that he has also started a few businesses on his own, such as The Hive, A Sharp Knife, and Adventures in Wonderland. The Wall Street Journal says that he works as a consultant for several new businesses.
Leaders of the company are glad that Leto helped. Leto said that after “playing a lot of roles,” he’s learned to be independent and passionate about being an entrepreneur, which “led me to the tech world.” Leto has quietly gotten better at investing over the years, which is why he’s probably made millions more from his acting pay.
Wealthy Gorilla says that Leto’s total earnings and assets add up to $90 million, which is an estimate of his net worth. But other sources say that by 2022, he is already worth $100 million. And Leto won’t stop being able to make money any time soon.
Leto’s Upcoming Roles and Earnings
Vanity Fair says that Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway both have roles in the new movie WeCrashed. He plays Adam Neumann, the CEO of WeWork. Morbius is also expected to be a Marvel movie with a lot of action. And everyone talks about how Leto is going to bring out his best Joker in D.C. Comic’s Suicide Squad. In 2016, he made just under $7 million for his role as the Joker.
Getting such big paychecks and continuing to play to sold-out stadiums with his band only adds to Leto’s money. But don’t just think he wants the money. Leto is a big supporter of several charities and causes.
The 50-year-old shows that he will work hard for everything he wants. Leto is worth $100 million because he worked hard and earned it.
