Now it makes sense. Leonardo DiCaprio changes his girlfriends faster than most of us change our Brita water filters, because he believes that women are the most persecuted in the world and he’s showing all the ladies of the planet some love and affection and he’s doing it one woman at a time. He’s just starting with the tall, blonde, young skinny models. He’ll get to you short, brown-headed, non-skinny oldies eventually.
Leonardo was on Today this morning to promote The Revenant and Willie Geist asked him what winning an Oscar would mean to him. Leonardo probably dug deep to not jump out of his chair and twirl around while singing, “I want it now!” Leonardo played it cool while LYING!!!!
“I know it’s a cliché, but the truth is it’s ultimately not why you do these films. You do them because if you love the art form — and cinema to me is the great modern art form — you can look back one day and say, ‘I did that piece of work, and I gave it everything I could while I was there.’ And if you have enough of those later on in life, you’re a happy artist.”
Yeah, right, Leo. You do it for the yachts, model cooch and OSCAR!
Leonardo DiCatchAHo also did an interview with Parade (via Lainey Gossip) where he talked about making the movie, saving the environment and other shit. He was asked about marriage and fame, and he said that marriage will happen to him when it happens (read: when the government makes it legal for a human to marry an Oscar statue) and said that he doesn’t like to bitch about the hardships of fame since he knows he can walk away from it if he wants to. He was also asked why the role of women in The Revenant play such a small part while the dudes dominate. Leo said this.
“This represents the savagery of a lawless culture. Women have been the most persecuted people throughout all of recorded history, more than any race or religion.”
He’s going to get in trouble for that one. The Los Angeles Times did a study a couple of years ago where they found that 94% of Oscar voters are white, 77% are dudes and the average age is 62. So Leo’s Oscar campaign manager is totally going to give him hell for not saying, “White old men have been the most persecuted people throughout all of recorded history, more than any race or religion.”
