MOVIE fans were at a loss for words after seeing an unrecognizable Jared Leto in the House of Gucci promo posters.
Jared, 49, looked completely different from his usual chic, slim self and looked aged with prosthetics on his face to play fashion designer Paolo Gucci.
The actor looked unrecognizable with a bald patch, receding grey hair and ageing prosthetics to complete the look.
The Suicide Squad actor will be staring alongside Lady Gaga and Adam Driver for the crime drama.
It follows Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga) as she plots to murder her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver), the heir to the famous Italian fashion empire.
Jared is known for undergoing dramatic transformations for his roles.
He previously changed into trans woman Rayon in his Oscar-winning role for Dallas Buyers Club.
The star also became the iconic Joker – complete with green hair, tattoos and white skin – in Suicide Squad and Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut.
While movie fans have come to expect Jared’s dramatic transformations for roles, they were completely floored by his look for House of Gucci.
“Jared Leto loves a transformation for a role and I’m here for it,
wrote one fan on Twitter.
Another added: “I am at a loss for words.”
A third wrote: “How tf is this Jared Leto.”
And a fourth commented: “Dude, that’s Jared Leto? Unrecognizable. Wow. Give this movie all of the makeup #Oscars right now.”
The new promotional posters which dropped today show the major cast including Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jeremy Irons and Academy Award winner Al Pacino as the various members of the Gucci fashion family.
House of Gucci, directed by Ridley Scott, is based on Sara Gay Forden’s 2001 novel The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed.
The true story follows how Patrizia planned to kill her ex-husband Maurizio with the help of a hitman.
Patrizia was sent to prison for 26 years after being convicted of killing the grandson of Gucci founder Guccio Gucci in 1995.
After serving 18 years in jail, the high fashion personality was released in 2016.
Jared’s character Paolo Gucci was vice president and managing director of Gucci Shops Inc and Gucci Parfums of America.
He clashed with his uncle Rodolfo – played by Jeremy Irons – as he wanted to modernise the brand, before being fired in 1978.
Then he fought with Maurizio, before declaring bankruptcy in 1990 with debts of around $90 million.
House of Gucci is due to hit our screens in the US on November 24, 2021
