Films more interesting than music: Jared Leto

London, March 7 (IANS) Hollywood actor-musician Jared Leto says being a film star is more interesting than making music.

The “Requiem of a Dream” actor who also fronts rock band 30 Seconds to Mars enjoys both aspects of his professional life but finds movie-making more “rewarding”, reports imdb.com.

“Making a film is really the most interesting part for me. I love the research. I love the building of a character. I also don’t need to make five movies a year… I’m not after being the person who makes the most films. I want to have a rewarding, challenging experience, so I tend to do more art house type films, not big blockbuster movies. It’s interesting to be able to be a smaller piece of a bigger puzzle,” he said.

While Leto prefers the challenge of the film industry, the 38-year-old hunk also enjoys the responsibility he has producing music, writing songs and coming up with ideas for the band – also consisting of Tomo Milicevic and Shannon Leto.

“With music you’re much more responsible for everything. As the songwriter, as a person who’s behind some of the creative ideas, you are the director, writer, editor, producer and the actor, so you have a much bigger contribution,” he said.
