Jared Leto unrecognisable with fat suit and balding head in House Of Gucci clip

Jared Leto has stunned fans in the new trailer for House Of Gucci, as the versatile actor has one again completely changed his appearance for a role.

The star, 49, looks unrecognisable as he transformed to play the aging family patriarch, Paolo Gucci.

It's a star studded cast for the film, with Leto starring alongside the likes of Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jeremy Irons and Al Pacino.

The usually hunky star looks like a completely different person, with a balding head, prosthetics and a receding hairline.

Leto is known for his usually ripped physique and long hair, but he is renowned for giving his all to roles and transforming.

The plot of the film follows Patrizia Reggiani, played by Lady Gaga, as she plots to murder her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci, a role taken on by Adam Driver.

Maurizio is the heir to the famous Italian fashion empire.

This isn't the first time Jared has changed beyond all recognition: he dyed his hair green and was adorned with make-up and fake tattoos for his role as the Joker in Suicide Squad.

He also gained nearly 5 stone (70lbs) to play the role of Mark David Chapman, the man who assassinated John Lennon, for the film Chapter 27.

To gain the weight he said his diet consisted of pizza, pasta, and melted Häagen-Dazs ice cream mixed with olive oil and soy sauce. Yum!

Leto ended up giving himself gout in that role.

In his Oscar-winning role for Dallas Buyers Club, he played a trans woman with HIV.

To play the part he dropped down to just 8 stone (114lbs) and removed every hair from his body, including his eyebrows.

He has since bulked up again for the forthcoming Morbius, where he plays a superhero that ends up dealing with vampirism after an attempt to cure a blood disease goes wrong.

Fans are raving about the latest transformation for House Of Gucci online.

"Jared Leto loves a transformation for a role and I’m here for it," raved one fan.

Another added "Dude, that's Jared Leto? Unrecognizable. Wow. Give this movie all of the makeup Oscars right now."

One simply said: "I just did my first quadruple take", as they shared the movie poster of Leto.

Another joked: "Knowing Jared Leto that isn't make-up with prosthetics. He strategically hit up several buffets while forcibly speeding himself through time."
