Maybe Ricky Had a Chance With Jordan Catalano After All

That Jared Leto is nothing if not unpredictable. Marc Malkin of E! Online reports that actor-musician-hair grower is helping raise money for gay rights group FAIR by taking part in an online auction of celebrity-signed prints of artist Shepard Fairey's "Defend Equality Love Unites," a poster in support of gay marriage. But Leto did more than just sign his autograph. After writing out the actual language of the Proposition 8 ballot initiative on the back of his Fairey print, he burned it and placed the ashes in a clear glass urn with the inscription, "Here lies within, the remains of Proposition 8, may it rest in peace." Then he signed, dated and topped it with a red ribbon. (So deep, so dark. Angela Chase is dying somewhere.)

Other celebs involved include Scarlett Johansson, Sarah Silverman and Chelsea "Jackie Harris" Handler, who wrote on hers, "To my gays. Thank you for being gay!" (You're welcome!)
