My, how time flies!
Who would've thought this fresh-faced 25-year-old would go on to win an Oscar for playing an HIV-positive transgender woman in Dallas Buyers Club?
We have a feeling Jared Leto himself would've been the last one to see that coming!
Back when Vanity Fair featured him in an issue in 1997, the actor already had his iconic role as Jordan Catalano in My So-Called Life under his belt, but the best was yet to come!
So, enjoy this early photo of Jared (above) that Vanity Fair tweeted today, and then go down to the gallery to see this Oscar winner in all his ombre-haired glory!
