Jared Leto revealed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon that he was on a silent meditation retreat in March 2020 without any cell phone or tv to inform him of the coronavirus pandemic causing the world to be in lockdown.

“When I went away, there were about 150 cases, and just in that short amount of time, when I came out, there was a shutdown, a state of emergency, and the whole world had changed. But when we were in there, they didn’t tell us.” Jared Leto told Jimmy Fallon. 

“I didn’t turn on my phone until I went back to LA. So I drove the whole way trying to be peaceful and zen, keep the feeling going. I got back and I was shocked.”

Jimmy Fallon mentioned that it sounded like an episode from The Twilight Zone. Jared replied mentioning the irony that he had a great tool to deal with stress however nothing could have prepared him or anyone for the pandemic. 

“It was like coming out to the zombie apocalypse”
