In an interview with men's fashion glossy GQ, actor-singer Jared Leto said that out actors have fewer opportunities in Hollywood.

The 44-year-old Leto stars as the Joker in Suicide Squad, which opens Friday. In his last film, Dallas Buyers Club, Leto played a transgender woman with AIDS. Leto won numerous awards for the role, including an Oscar.

“Do you think America would accept a gay leading man?” GQ asked.

“Uh, I hope so,” Leto answered.

“What do you think?”

“I definitely don’t think a gay leading man would have the same opportunities as a straight leading man,” Leto said. “I don’t think that. Not for a single second. I don’t know if that’s offensive or not, but that’s my thought right now. It shouldn’t be that way. I don’t think you’ll have as many opportunities. And I think you could say the same for minorities. What a word, “minority.” Have we taken that word off the list yet? ‘Cause it should be. Anyway, no, I think that this is still a very conservative business.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Leto said that he does not “believe in a God who sits in conscious judgment of the actions of humanity.”
