Jared Leto has returned from a desert meditation retreat, where he had “no idea” about coronavirus due to a lack of phones and communication.
The Suicide Squad actor took to Twitter following his return today (March 17) after 12 days in isolation. In that time, cinemas around the world have been closed and many film and TV projects suspended or postponed.
“Wow. 12 days ago I began a silent meditation in the desert. We were totally isolated. No phone, no communication etc.,” Leto’s tweet begins.
“We had no idea what was happening outside the facility. Walked out yesterday into a very different world. One that’s been changed forever. Mind blowing – to say the least.”
The actor continued: “I’m getting messages from friends and family all around the globe and catching up on what’s going on. Hope you and yours are ok. Sending positive energy to all. Stay inside. Stay safe.”
