If you had to select which of this year’s major Oscar winners is most likely to damage his or her new trophy, who would you pick? If you said Jared Leto, you’d be correct, because apparently he’s already done just that.

The 42-year-old Dallas Buyers Club winner revealed that he dinged up his Oscar within hours of getting it.
“I was letting some of the people that I worked with take a picture with the Oscar and I was carrying it down the stairs and, boom, I hit it against the railing of the stairs and I put a little nick in the back of it,” Leto said. “So, you know, that’s how it goes. It’s already lived in, as they say.”
We’re not sure we’d say that, Jared, but of course, the actor takes a carefree approach to the matter. Dinged up or not, he still has the Oscar sitting in his house.
