(Language Warning) At the 86th Academy Awards when Jared Leto received an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role in "Dallas Buyers Club," he thanked the dreamers in Ukraine and Venezuela during his acceptance speech.

Last night he backed up those words with action by waving the Ukraine flag and leading the audience in a “Glory to Ukraine!” chant. During his band's "30 Seconds to Mars" concert at the Sports Palace in Kiev, Leto thanked the crowd for their fight.

“You know, you guys are in the midst of something really beautiful and it may be difficult but there’s no price too high for the privilege of owning yourself, and I want to let you know, I understand other bands have canceled their shows but there was no bleep way 30 Seconds to Mars wasn’t going to be here in this beautiful city and this great country to share this with you all," Leto said.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

Could be. But right now, he's showing more guts than Il Douche and Lurch.

You never can tell. Maybe not, but he might surprise you.
Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
