Here's the photo that sparked the meme-making:

Leto posted it about a week ago, and several people have taken to creating their own Photoshopped images and posting them on social media with the hashtags #JaredHuggingLeto and #JaredHugginLeto.

Meanwhile, the Oscar-winning actor also proved he can take a joke. He's since posted several of the images on his own Instagram.

Leto, who also fronts the band Thirty Seconds to Mars, won his first Oscar this year for his role in Dallas Buyers Club. He's since been named the world's sexiest vegetarian celebrity, alongside Ellen Page, by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and is in talks to replace Will Smith in Brilliance, Legendary's adaptation of the Marcus Sakey novel.
