Jared Leto has said that he flirted with director Jean-Marc Valleé over Skype to get the role of transgender Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club.

The Golden Globe and SAG award winner said: "I was in Berlin and there was a Skype meeting set up with the director. It wasn't really an audition, but I knew it was a test.

"He was feeling me out, so I used it as an opportunity. As soon as we connected, I put lipstick on and he was stunned. I undid the black jacket I had on, pulled a pink furry sweater over my shoulders and proceeded to flirt with him for the next 20 minutes.

"I woke up the next day with the part, so… a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do!"
