Is This Oscar Winner a Cult Leader?

Jared Leto, the Academy Award-winning actor and frontman of the band 30 Seconds To Mars, has recently found himself at the center of controversy. Rumors of him running a cult began circulating after an intense three-day retreat on a private island, where attendees were encouraged to get matching tattoos and dress in all white.

While Leto’s band has playfully referred to itself as a cult in the past, the question remains: Does Jared Leto really run a cult, or are these claims mere exaggerations?

The Mars Island Retreat

The cult rumors first emerged in 2019 when a photo of Jared Leto leading followers dressed in white robes on a private island surfaced on Twitter. This picture was taken during the Mars Island retreat, an exclusive three-day experience offered by Leto’s band.

The retreat promised fans an intimate and all-inclusive festival experience, featuring yoga sessions, pool time, movie screenings, stargazing, and two special performances by 30 Seconds To Mars.

The Controversy

Critics raised eyebrows when it was revealed that attendees were getting matching tattoos of the band’s logo as part of the package and were instructed to dress in all white to match Leto.

Photos circulated on social media, showcasing hundreds of young women following Leto along the beaches and gathering around him during performances. Some social media users deemed the images “creepy” and likened Leto to a cult leader, noting the absence of his bandmates in most pictures.

The Cult Allegations

While the images and testimonials from the Mars Island retreat raised suspicions, it is important to approach the cult allegations with caution. Leto and his band have been using the phrase “Yes, this is a cult” in their marketing materials since 2013. However, there is no substantial evidence to suggest that Leto or his bandmates are running an actual cult.
