Oscar-winning actor Jared Leto revealed he was once fired from his job as a kid because he was selling weed at a movie theater's back door.

"I worked at a movie theater when I was a kid, and I got fired for selling weed out the back door," the 49-year-old actor told Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday. "I was an entrepreneur."

Moreover, he jokingly told the host that popcorn "goes well" with the weed. The actor didn't reveal what work he used to do at the theater, at that time. 

While weed is now legal in many cities in the United States, 40 years ago when Leto was a kid, it was strictly illegal.

DeGeneres further asked the actor about his celebrity crushes, to which Leto said he had two female crushes and one male. He began with Barbara Eden and Vanna White, before adding Christopher Walken to the list. DeGeneres reacted, "That took a turn."

Walken, 78, is popularly known for working in movies like "Batman," "Catch Me If You Can" and "Sleepy Hollow."

On the work front, Leto was recently seen in "House of Gucci," which is slated to release in theaters this Wednesday. The actor played Paolo Gucci's character in the movie, which is helmed by director Ridley Scott.

Leto took to Twitter on Wednesday to share a clip from the movie, in which he is dancing with Lady Gaga, who played Patrizia Reggiani.

Considering his upcoming projects, the actor will be next seen in a superhero movie, "Morbius," which is slated to release on Jan. 28, 2022. The movie revolves around biochemist Michael Morbius, who tries to heal himself from a rare blood disease. However, the experiment goes wrong and he becomes a vampire.

The movie is helmed by director Daniel Espinosa, and it is based on a Marvel comic book, "Morbius, the Living Vampire," which was created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane.

Leto will also feature in a TV series, "WeCrashed," which is slated to release next year on Apple TV+ and stars Anne Hathaway, America Ferrera, Kyle Marvin and O-T Fagbenle. He will also feature in movies like "Adrift" and "Tron 3."

On the personal front, the actor is dating 26-year-old model Valery Kaufman.
