Leto, 46, brings that level of commitment to everything he does, whether that means losing 30 pounds for his Oscar-winning role as an HIV-positive trans prostitute in Dallas Buyers Club , or going Method to play the psychotic Joker in supervillain team-up Suicide Squad. At the moment, his focus is squarely on his band, which is in the midst of a whirlwind European tour before starting a North American jaunt this summer. Question: You've typically taken four to five years between the release of each Thirty Seconds to Mars album. How do you decide when it's time to put out new music? I always promise myself that the next album is going to be different, and I'll put it out in a year or two, but it never seems to happen that way. Q: What were some of the driving emotions that inspired you as you were writing America? Leto: Fear. Writing an album over the course of five years, you experience all kinds of different things.
