Jared Leto named fave of Italian eyewear brand

Oscar winner Jared Leto has signed up to star in a new ad campaign for Italian eyewear brand Carrera.

The Dallas Buyers Club star will front ads for the company's Maverick collection, which will debut internationally next month (Feb16).

Announcing the news in a statement on Friday (15Jan16), the actor said, "I've known of Carrera since I was a kid and when I came across the Maverick project I was immediately connected to it as it talks about people that are brave, bold, that take risks - the wild horses, the people that are not afraid to fail, the type of people who have inspired my whole life."

Carrera global general manager Massimo Pozzetti has revealed the company's bosses picked Leto as their latest ambassador because he "perfectly embodies the boldness and spontaneity of the new Maverick collection".
