JARED LETO KNOWS HOW TO PLAY AN ECCENTRIC DESIGNER

The first time Jared Leto met Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld he quipped “One day I have to play you in a movie!” Karl responded “Only you, darling, only you.” Jared proved he wasn’t kidding when he agreed to play the late Lagerfeld in a film about his life this week. Years ago, we were thrilled to be invited for a small dinner at Mr Chow in Beverly Hills for Karl Lagerfeld. That was back when the flamboyant designer was heavier and he wore black silk caftans accessorized with a fan. He proved to be quite entertaining and a friendly dinner companion. In 2001, he lost over 90 pounds so he could fit into slim suits that he accessorized with stiff white collar shirts, black gloves, and the ever-present Diet Coke. So Jared will be going through quite a transformation for the role- much like he did in House of Gucci.

  1. Another great story to be told in Janet’s autobiography describing her life as a groupie during the 70’s and 80’s. Bring it!
