But would Ru Paul approve?

Photos from the New Orleans set of The Dallas Buyers Club feature Jared Leto working his best drag moves. With a fluffy brunette wig, fur jacket and pumps, (not to mention '80s-inspired eyeliner), the dude looks like a foxy lady, not unlike Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler with his square jawline.

Leto, 40, who fronts his own band, 30 Seconds to Mars, plays Rayon, a cross-dresser who is battling AIDS and who helps Matthew McConaughey's character smuggle drugs from Mexico. The independent film is based on a true story and also stars Jennifer Garner, reports EW.com.

Leto, naturally thin and a fan of raw foods, says he has suffered for his craft, not only enduring heels, but waxing his entire body.

He shared the experience this week on his Twitter account: "I just waxed my legs for this new role. Time to get into character. Pluck pluck pluck. Filming this week." He added: "Ladies, I feel your pain. What I have learned today: Beauty is pain."
