Could Jared Leto's role in House of Gucci lead to a Thirty Seconds to Mars collaboration with Lady Gaga?
Speaking with NME, Leto says it "would be fun" to work on a song with the "Bad Romance" superstar.
"I danced with her already so that was enough for me," Leto says. "But that would be fun. She's a terrific artist and I think she's just a real talent. I have a lot of respect for her…her bravery."
Leto also shares that the House of Gucci soundtrack, which features a number of hits from the '70s and '80s, has influenced the next, currently-in-the-works Mars album, the follow-up to 2018's AMERICA.
"There are a lot of those sounds that definitely are on the new album," Leto says. "My first instrument was a Roland Juno 106, which is a synthesizer from the '80s. I really cherished that instrument, and those sounds are so nostalgic."
He adds, "Those sounds are kinda embedded in our psyche, and they really speak directly to our heart sometimes. They take us back to the films that we grew up on. So I love to pull from that stuff."
House of Gucci, which details the assassination of real-life fashion mogul Maurizio Gucci, is out today. Leto plays Paulo Gucci, cousin of Maurizio, who is portrayed by Adam Driver. Gaga stars as Maurizio's ex-wife Patrizia Reggiani, who was convicted of arranging his killing.
