It’s March 10, 2022. You excitedly dress up to go to theaters and watch the new Morbius movie starring Jared Leto. It’s your favorite Midnight Sons character and you’ve been eagerly waiting for a movie of its own. After 104 minutes the movie ends, and you think to yourself –“That was one of the worst movies I’ve ever allowed myself to watch”.
It’s true, Jared Leto’s Morbius is this year’s laughing stock in the movies category, the hate for it got so bad that a meme started trending where you pretend to think of it as a masterpiece. Leto’s performance as Morbius, however, was critically appraised for at least making the character look scary, which is in quite the contrast to what the actor is up to now.
Jared Leto Launches Gender-Neutral Skincare Line
Jared Leto‘s achieved a lot of things in his life, he’s primarily an actor who’s done quite a brilliant job in various movies and TV series ever since his screen debut in My So-Called Life back in 1994.
He’s been in everything- as a thief in Panic Room, the Joker in Suicide Squad, as the frontman of the alt-rock band Thirty Second to Mars, and most recently as the man who got to portray the Living Vampire Morbius in a movie based on the character.
But what he’s up to now has a stark thematic difference from his role in Morbius. The 50-year-old actor has recently launched his own line of skincare products, and the catch of his new products is that they’re ‘gender-neutral.’
The launch of Twentynine Palms, as he names it, puts him on the list of celebrities who have launched their own skincare lines like Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow. These products, which are slated to launch on October 25, have been crafted for use on the skin, hair, and body in general.

The Twentynine Palms skincare products are apparently made with desert botanicals, which is quite the catch, to be honest. But the prices are exorbitant- the cheapest product in the line is a cleanser that goes for $39, while the most expensive product is an eye cream that goes for $97!
Jared Leto’s Skincare Line Being Put On Blast, Much Like Morbius
Looking at the prices of these products, one may think that this is too expensive. But that’s nothing new with these celebrity skincare products, Cindy Crawford’s Meaningful Beauty sells a dark spot treatment product that goes for $80!
These products aren’t something that the everyday person can afford to buy every month, and that very reason is why Jared Leto’s Twentynine Palms has been put on blast ever since the announcement of its release.
Twitter was especially geared up to put Leto’s new business venture down, and they’re ruthless-
ima stick with my $5 items from the ordinary

Hellbent on bringing it down-
We don’t care + we won’t be buying

They’ve got a point-
skin care is already gender neutral… anyways

There’s got to be one at least-
who is gonna buy something from jared leto’s skincare line be serious

The main concern with Jared Leto’s skincare line is that it’s quite pricey. If anyone ever pays $54 for a shampoo of all things, it’d better strengthen that person’s hair genetics!
The Jared Leto starter Morbius is currently available for streaming on Netflix.
