Best supporting actor nominee Jared Leto let out his inner rocker — if only for a second.
Most stars who acknowledge the Oscar fan bleachers on their walk down the red carpet give out humble waves or blow gentle kisses to the crowd.
The long-haired Leto, who before his nomination for "Dallas Buyers Club" was known as much for his band 30 Seconds to Mars as his acting, gave a slow-rising rocker's fist and an "Oh yeah" face to rev up the volume of the delighted bleacher fans.
He never stopped walking, though, and disappeared before many could learn what the commotion was about.
