It’s been a rough couple of months for Jared Leto’s Oscar statue.

Just days after he picked up the Best Supporting Actor honor at the Academy Awards, the Dallas Buyers Club star revealed he’d busted it.

Leto now says that wasn’t the end of the trophy’s troubles.

“I damaged it,” he says in a new AP interview. “But then I came home and saw it had another nick on it. So it looks like someone else had fun with it, too.”

The actor continues, “My Oscar is a filthy mess. Everybody was pawing that thing. I kind of was just passing it around at parties. A couple of times I lost sight of it and I thought, ‘You know, if it goes away, it’s not meant to be mine.'”

“But it always seemed to find its way back to me,” he says.
