Earth to Jared Leto! The Oscar-winning actor admitted Tuesday that he just found out about the coronavirus pandemic after spending nearly two weeks in the middle of nowhere. "Wow. Twelve days ago I began a silent meditation in the desert. We were totally isolated. No phone, no communication...We had no idea what was happening outside the facility," the 48-year-old tweeted. "Walked out yesterday into a very different world. One that’s been changed forever. Mind-blowing, to say the least. I’m getting messages from friends and family all around the globe and catching up on what’s going on." He ended by telling fans, "Hope you and yours are okay. Sending positive energy to all. Stay inside. Stay safe." Unfortunately for him, some of his followers pointed out that his Twitter account has been posting over the past 12 days, suggesting his digital detox boast is shady at best. Or, as one Twitter user put it, "Your life is an extended bit."
