Is Jared Leto looking for less intense role that doesn't involve him losing loads of weight or sending co-stars used condoms?

Say... a part in the sequel to The Rock's recent reboot of Baywatch?

Leto has become infamous for going full method in films like Dallas Buyers Club and Suicide Squad, but he's admitted he wouldn't be required if picked something a little bit more fun.

"I don't think I need to do it for every role," he told ES Magazine. "I mean if I was in Baywatch II, I don't think I'd need to do it. That would be so much fun, to be in a movie as fun as that.

"But everyone's got to do what works for them," he continued. "Some people can be eating chicken nuggets with a stripper on their lap and then jump right into it.

"I've always just done what I have to do in order to do a good job - and I feel I do a better job when I give a bigger commitment.

"The shows that stand out with Thirty Seconds to Mars are the ones where I'm willing to cross the line and step into that uncomfortable place of imbalance, where I don't understand what's going to happen next."

The Oscar-winning actor also revealed that his Hollywood home - which is a disused Air Force (you didn't expect him to live in a house, did you?) - is most probably haunted, and definitely talks.

"God knows what they did here," he said of his property. "But it talks. We've already had ghost sightings reported by my housekeeper.

"A handyman quit the project as he had an encounter. But I feel quite at home up here. It's like a refuge. You're at the top of this mountain. There's this breeze coming through. It's hard to leave."

And on the possibility of starting a family, the 42-year-old star - who has previously dated Cameron Diaz and Scarlett Johansson - added: "I think it's really important to be present if you have children. I have a lot of... things to take care of."

The full interview appears in this week's issue of ES Magazine, Thursday, 8 June.
