While we were at summer camp, Jared Leto was stealing cars

Recent Golden Globe winner and Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto wasn’t like us when he was a teenager. While we were at summer camp, he was up to no good. Or at least he wants you to think that.

”Some kids went and did summer camps, we went and stole your car,” said in an interview published at Entertainment Wise. “At the time, I don’t think we thought there was much wrong with what we were doing, unless of course we got caught – that was the wrong part.”

Summer camp can’t save everyone, but that’s apparently where Hollywood came in. Leto moved to Hollywood in 1992, where he landed his first role at age 21 in the TV show Camp Wilder, an ABC sitcom that had nothing to do with summer camp, or stealing cars.
