Brush with death. Jared Leto was grateful to see another day after falling during a recent rock climb.
The Suicide Squad actor, 48, opened up about his near-fatal fall, which occurred at Red Rock Canyon in Las Vegas, in a series of tweets on Friday, March 6.
“Not to sound dramatic, but this is the day I nearly died. Took a pretty good fall climbing with @AlexHonnold at Red Rock,” he wrote on Twitter alongside a photo of himself climbing and an up-close look at the frayed climbing rope. “Looked up and within seconds the rope was being cut by the rock while I dangled some 600 ft in the air. I remember looking down at the ground below.”
He went on to describe the near-death experience as “strange” and “melancholy,” noting that the moment was “less fear, more matter of fact.”
