WENN reports Cameron Diaz had an uncomfortable moment at a music festival over the weekend – because her ex-boyfriend Jared Leto of 30 Seconds to Mars was also there. The recently-separated screen stars were at the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California, on Saturday, which led to a lot of clever maneuvering to avoid a showdown. An onlooker says, “They each knew the other was there, and it seemed Cameron was more interested in avoiding him than vice versa.” But, adds another source, “They briefly ran into each other once. She took it in her stride.”
TeenMusic.com (WENN) reports actor Jared Leto and his band 30 Seconds to Mars were greeted with a hostile reception when they opened for Incubus at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, Canada recently.
