Jared Leto's physical transformation for his role in Dallas Buyers Club was the talk of Hollywood this year.

The actor took home the Best Supporting Actor award for his work on the film and explained the extent of the changes he underwent during his acceptance speech.

"Wow, I'd like to use this opportunity to clear up a few things," he told the crowd.

"I did not ever use any prosthetics in this film…that tiny little Brazilian bubble butt was all mine."

The Beverly Hilton ballroom broke out into laughter as Leto clarified even further what steps he took to play his transgender role named Rayon.

"It was a very transformative role, I had to do a lot of things to prepare. One of the things I did was wax my entire body including my eyebrows," he shared.

"I'm just fortunate that it wasn't a period piece so I didn't have to do a full Brazilian [wax]. Ladies, you know what I'm talking about though…and so do some of you men, I think."

Leto ended his speech on a serious note, however, saying, "This is incredible. I didn't make a film for almost six years because I was pursuing other dreams and I just have to say it's more than an honor to come back and have this love and support and I never expected it and never even dreamed of it.

"I want to thank my team for making this so fun and giving me this incredible life, and to the Rayons of the world, thanks for the inspiration."
