Jared Leto would prefer to marry Kanye West over Kim Kardashian.

The 30 Seconds to Mars singer says if he was faced with the choice of marrying the 'Bound 2' rapper or his fiancee - widely considered one of the sexiest women in the world - he'd prefer Kanye because they have more in common.

When asked to choose by MTV, Jared replied: ''There's a basis of a relationship, and we always have an interesting conversation.

''And being able to talk to your spouse I could imagine as being a really important thing to do.

''You have to have an eternal conversation, if you're going to be in a relationship. You have to be with someone you can talk to about anything, forever. [So] I'd have to pick Kanye.''

Jared - who's band memorably covered Kanye's track 'Stronger' for the UK's Radio 1 - received a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for his role as a transgender prostitute in 'Dallas Buyers Club' earlier this week, and says it was a life-changing role.

He explained to ABC News: ''It was the role of a lifetime. It was an incredible thing to represent this group of people who largely are ignored. It was an incredibly challenging time for a group of people who were with faced with an incredibly deplorable set of circumstances and they were fighting for their lives.

''It took about 20 years to get this film made. The tiny little thing cost like $4 million so it's a testament to the hard work and passion of the filmmakers.''
