By now, most of us are days into working from sofa, we've committed to social-distancing, and we're doing everything we've smashed through several jigsaw puzzles in a bid to combat cabin fever. However, things are different for Jared Leto. In what is perhaps the most Jared Leto story of all time, the actor and musician has only just learned of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) because he was on a totally isolated 12-day retreat in the desert. Of course.
Posting on Instagram on March 17, Jared told followers, "Wow. We were totally isolated. No phone, no communication etc. We had no idea what was happening outside the facility. Walked out yesterday into a very different world. One that's been changed forever. Mind-blowing—to say the least."
"I'm getting messages from friends and family all around the globe and catching up on what's going on. Hope you and yours are ok. Sending positive energy to all. Stay inside. Stay safe."
Have you ever heard of anything more ~celebrity~ than returning from a desert retreat to discover an international pandemic? Because I haven't.
