The Oscar winner took to social media on Monday to share that he had “no idea what was happening outside the facility” amid the current coronavirus climate.
“Wow. 12 days ago I began a silent meditation in the desert. We were totally isolated. No phone, no communication etc. We had no idea what was happening outside the facility,” Leto wrote on his social platforms.
