Having become a walking meme, Jared Leto doing Jared Leto things isn’t exactly out of the ordinary, with the one-time Academy Award and two-time Razzie winner regularly getting up to exactly the sort of shenanigans you’d expect him to.

The latest comes with no small hint of danger, though, after he was spotted scaling the external walls of a hotel without any safety equipment. He probably has his reasons why, but they more than likely don’t make a great deal of sense, which leaves us asking why a rich and famous 51 year-old man suddenly got hit with the urge to try his hand at free-climbing.

Of course, given Leto’s propensity for method-induced madness, maybe the answer is staring us all straight in the face. After all, did he not very recently play a certain superhero with the ability to climb walls and scale skyscrapers on a whim? Could he be preparing for his return as “New Marvel Legend” Michael Morbius??? Probably not given that it’s one of the worst comic book adaptations ever made, not to mention the fact the world simply isn’t ready for a second round of Morbin’ Time.

As far as we can tell, Leto simply decided that it was as good a time as any to channel his inner Spider-Man and go for a leisurely clamber, which is perfectly on-brand if we’re being honest. He’s a very strange guy, and people seem to have been conditioned to his antics, meaning that it’s very unlikely he’s ever going to quieten down.
