The 41-year-old star plays Nemo Nobody, a character the film follows from birth all the way until he is 120 years old and the last man to die a natural death. On his deathbed, Nemo remembers his life and the things he could and should have done as well as the things he did not do. Leto plays Nemo at various ages, and needless to say, he had to log some serious time in hair and makeup to play the character over a span of 120 years.
Leto's co-star, Diane Kruger, revealed to collider.com, "Jared is quite something... He has six and a half hours of makeup every day."
