Alexis Arquette on hooking up with Jared Leto: ‘I was dressed as a man when it went down’

Trans actress Alexis Arquette made headlines last summer when she claimed to have slept with Oscar winner Jared Leto while she was still presenting as a male.

She’s still talking about it and wonders what all the fuss is about.

Part of the fuss is Arquette had said of Leto’s manhood: ‘It’s not only massive; it’s like a Praetorian Guard’s helmet.’

Now she tells Out.com: ‘People are asking about Jared Leto’s penis size. Is that what it’s come to? I wasn’t trying to get people to believe anything. I mentioned it in passing at the end of the interview. I was dressed as a man when it went down. I was trying to give some hope for the gay men out there! But the idea that the dude could be bisexual—whoa, that’s just too much for people to handle.’

She adds: ‘I did find out after our tete-a-tete that he did end up with a trannie I know, and she was on top. [laughs].’

Leto has not commented on Arquette’s claims.

Arquette has appeared in more than 40 films including playing a Boy George-like singer in The Wedding Singer and supporting roles in Pulp Fiction, Threesome and The Bride of Chucky.

She is the sibling of actors Rosanna Arquette, David Arquette, and Patricia Arquette. Her transition from male to female was documented in the film Alexis Arquette: She’s My Brother which debuted at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival.
