Leonardo DiCaprio in Prada

Posted on May 02, 2013

Leo (because we’re tight) rarely does red carpet and when he does, it’s usually something so boring-but-competent that we have nothing to say. But it seems weird to feature everyone in the Gatsby cast but the guy playing Gatsby.

So… uh…

Ladies and Gentlemen, Leonardo DiCaprio. As Georg Von Trapp.

 

Leonardo DiCaprio attends the world premiere of ‘The Great Gatsby’ in New York City in Prada.

 

 

 

We got nothing.

 

Undo the bottom button, Leo.

      Oo. You’re sassy today, TLo!

      • drdarke

        It’s – a suit. In fact, I own one just like it, right down to the white shirt and blue tie.

        It’s not horrible by any means, but – it’s…a suit. I look okay in it because I’m a bald middle-aged man with a paunch, not a Major Movie Star.

    • MarissaLG

      So funny how he looks 15 years younger on the poster than he does IRL.

      • MK03

        That’s because the poster has been photoshopped into oblivion.

        • spinachleaf

          On the movie poster he’s been photoshopped so hard he looks like the portrait of an albino on a china plate. I can’t wait for this catastrophe of a movie to come out. I’ll be heartbroken if it’s any good.;

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=677547537 John Hodgins

            Then you probably won’t be very heartbroken. Just sayin’. :-)

      • Rand Ortega

        Wow. Words have lost all meaning.

        • MarissaLG

          What do you mean by that?

          • http://CallMeJane.com/ CallMeJane

            Butting my nose in – I think it’s a reference to your “IRL”. We don’t need words any more.

      • Toto Maya

        That’s him? I thought it was Chris Pine.

    • Jessi03

      Bahahaha! Thank you for that.

    • carnush

      I keep thinking 60′s executive. All those blue suits on Mad Men have stuck in my mind’s eye I suppose…

    • Squarah

      He’s always had the most boring and forgettable “style” ever, on and off duty.

    • bxbourgie

      Boring but competent describes this perfectly. He still fine as frog’s hair tho.

    • jw_ny

      yawn. Punkinhead thinks this look makes him appear to be a serious actor. He really wants that Oscar! XD

    • StellaZafella

      He could almost be saying, “Well…I’m here….now what?”
      It almost makes me long for the cray cray of those who try too hard.

      But he’s still handsome in a young Orson Wellesian way…and better to wear a good suit well, without note, than to wear an expensive suit as if you’d never worn dress clothes before.

      • zenobar

        Orson Welles! Just so, Ms. Stella. Just so.

    • Sarah

      DUDE. My bff and I call him Di-cap-cap the Old Baby. This is because he continues to look like he’s in Stand By Me with a fake goatee taped to his face. I swear he’s a vampire or something.

      • Joy

        Right! I keep thinking he’s still Titanic Leo wearing makeup to age him.

    • Scimommy

      Somebody ‘splain me. Is he handsome or something? Interesting-looking? Sexy? A great actor? What is it? I don’t get it.

      • Angela_the_Librarian

        I had a huge crush on him when I was a teenager and he was in Titanic, but not so much anymore. His face still looks childish, regardless of the icky facial hair.

        • Derek_anny

          And for me, it’s the reverse. I mean, he was cute then, but now I want to put my arms around him and slow dance.

          in bed.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1277204672 Barbara Harris Morgan

        He is a good actor. No question.

      • aeb1986

        all of the above!

      • Nonmercisansfacon

        One of the best actor of his generation.

        • Pants_are_a_must

          …..very much up for debate, to be quite frank.

          • Nonmercisansfacon

            Who would that be then? Matt Damon? Ben Affleck? Bradley Cooper?

            • Pants_are_a_must

              How about Christian Bale? Idris Elba? Ralph Fiennes? Must we always make stupid competitions out of everything?

            • Nonmercisansfacon

              You wanted to make a competition out of it. I said he was *among* the best of his generation. You wanted to put that up for debate as if I said he was the best. I don’t personally find Idris Elba and Ralph Fiennes more talented than DiCaprio. Christian Bale is certainly among the best actors of his generation.

            • oekmama

              No, I find it interesting to first define who we think is his generation… let’s call it a discussion rather than a competition.
              I’m gonna be honest, I did not like him in Titanic, or Good Will Hunting… but I can completely admire his choices in terms of career direction. Maybe he’s filling that role (thinking person’s actor) that George Clooney is filling for the slightly older generation.
              So all I can say, is that he is well-dressed and looks like he’s got other things on his mind than the horse-and-pony-show which is promoting films. I know I’d like to sit beside him and find out what’s on his mind… and not even in a sexy way…

            • Nonmercisansfacon

              DiCaprio is 38. I’d define his generation as anyone around his age between 35-45 (maybe even push it to 50). This list includes Damon (who was in Good Will Hunting, not DiCaprio), Affleck, Bale, Will Smith, Edward Norton, Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Elba, Don Cheadle, Walhberg, Ribisi, Ethan Hawke,Brendan Fraser, Terrence Howard, Hugh Jackman, Josh Brolin, Edward Burns, Daniel Craig, Vin Diesel, Will Ferrell, Jamie Foxx, Cuba Gooding Jr, Paul Giamatti, Adam Sandler, Robert Downey Jr, John C. Reilly, Chris Rock, Nicolas Cage, Mike Meyers, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Jim Carey and Eddie Murphy, etc. I do not see what is controversial in saying he is among the best in this generation, right along Bale, Depp, Norton and Bardem (which are the top in my opinion). ,

            • MartyBellerMask

              Maybe “generation” is too broad. It’s like when people say they like “80s music”. It’s not a genre, it’s a decade with many genres..
              Leo is in a specific category, A-list, dramatic, leading man who plays characters in their 30s. In that respect he has nothing in common with say John C. Reilly other than race or talent. They are not up for the same roles.

              The fact that he can do character roles and comedy (seriously, PRICELESS in Django) is what puts him in the top of his category.

            • oekmama

              thanks for the correction.

            • Nonmercisansfacon

              Arg I forgot so many names on that list (lists are fun!): Clooney and Crowe (who are obviously amazing actors belonging in the top), Whitaker, Fiennes, Hank Azaria, Clive Owen, Cusack, Owen Wilson, Paul Rudd, Butler, Mark Ruffalo, Keanu Reeves, Aaron Eckhart, Bana, Billy Zane, Matt Dillon, McConaughey and many I have probably forgotten.

            • MartyBellerMask

              I’d wager Bale as THE best.

            • spinachleaf

              I bet I can come up with a stupider competition.

      • jilly_d

        One of the best actors of our generation – as evidenced by his performances in The Departed, Blood Diamond, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Catch Me if You Can, Revolutionary Road, and more. Also, sexy, interesting, and handsome. And he has a great voice; I could listen to him narrate an insurance seminar.

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        I’ve never particularly responded to his looks and I hate Titanic with a passion of – heh – Titanic proportions but he gives HANDS DOWN the best interpretation of Romeo (in Luhrman’s Romeo + Juliet) that I have ever seen. He is astonishingly good, extraordinary, brilliant. I like Clare Danes but she actually struggles with the verse a wee bit. DiCaprio nails it.

        • akprincess72

          I am WORD FOR WORD with you on this comment. Ughhh, everyone just loved that godawful movie (Titanic) & it just made me gag. As a rule, I’m not a DiCaprio fan, but we was born to play Romeo, I was spellbound. He was perfect… I will always love that movie.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1540233153 Malve Lyborg

        I had a crush on him since seeing Total Eclipse in 1995. Brilliant! Romeo & Julia was just the same. I loved his intensity and presence and good looks.
        So I have no clue whether or not he is a “real”, Ralph-Fiennes-like good actor, because I just like to look at him. But that’s enough for me.

      • Scimommy

        Okay! To sum up – many people like or love his acting, and opinion is split on looks. Got it. I’m immune both to his charms and his acting skills (and have stayed far, far away from Titanic) but it’s good to know that he is not just famous for being famous. Mystery solved, thanks everyone!

    • SewingSiren

      Is his head about 4X wider than normal?

      • http://thishotoldbroad.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

        No, his head’s always been too big. The dark suit may make it seem even larger than it really is, but it’s still pretty huge. Not a Leo fan here.

      • YayaGurl

        I was looking at his forehead and thinking “I am oz, the great and terrible!”

        • Tatiana Luján

          He would have been great as Oz, instead of Jame Franco.

        • Dhammadina

          Think also Orson Welles. Another huge head.

      • AndresB

        For quite some time now, his head has been ageing horizontally.
        But his make up is great (seriously).

      • Sarah

        I have developed a theory, which I will make known here. There is a certain gene pool of Caucasian man (that comes from Western Europe for the most part) that is prey to what I call “Old White Man Fat-Head Syndrome.” Case in point: my father. He is of Scots-Irish heritage, with a wee bit of Slav mixed in. He looked like a trout as a youth, with his skinny head being the same width as his neck. He now has a head so fat he is unrecognizable compared to photos of his youth. (Drinking helps with this.) Think on white guys you know, and how they’ve aged, and you’ll see what I’m getting at. Now, Leo, here, still looks babylike to me, and always had a bit of a big head, but I do detect a bit of widening. I suspect that OWMFH Syndrome is creeping up on him. (And drinking helps, as aforementioned.)

        • mshesterp

          I absolutely love your syndrome. I will be on the lookout OWMFHS–what a tragic disease! I think the drinking is definitely related.

          • Sarah

            Thank goodness it doesn’t seem to apply to ladies. I measure my forehead from time to time just to be sure, because I like to drink, but I’m pretty confident the Y chromosome makes you a fathead, so I’m safe.

          • LadyLuck777

            It happened to Mel Gibson. Compare Lethal Weapon 1 to now. His head is humongous (no pun intended)!

        • formerlyAnon

          Dear god you just made me laugh. Don’t know if it’s because of the mix of Polish, Irish & Dutch ancestry in my family or the wine. But I’m only on my first glass so I think it was your very compelling theory.

    • http://twitter.com/DarthJaeda Jaeda Laurez

      He looks better a teensy bit scruffy, in regular guy clothes, like he was in The Departed.

    • shirab

      Love Tobey Maguire perched on his shoulder and giving him the stinkeye.

      • zenobar

        It’s like Tobey is his Shoulder Angel.

      • another_laura

        It’s his homunculus!

      • http://profiles.google.com/denise.alden Denise Alden

        I can’t unsee it now!

    • Stylemom

      I have had a crush on him since 7th grade when Titanic came out. He is a beautiful man.

    • Jon

      That’s a good hair color for him.

      Once I can stop yawning, I’ll let y’all know what I think. Oh wait, I guess I just did, huh?

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      He’s turning into Jack Nicholson in front our very eyes.

      • http://profiles.google.com/denise.alden Denise Alden

        Word.

    • http://marshmallowjane.com/ marshmallowjane

      He would make a better character actor. I liked him in Titanic but even in that movie Kate and Leo were mismatched. She is curvy gorgeous. He looks like a boy. He dates models. He’s awfully lucky.

    • rainwood1

      I wish more men would button the second button. Seeing that triangle of white shirt below the first button always bugs me. I think it looks sloppy, and most men are going to put their hands in their pockets so buttoning both buttons is an improvement in my view.

    • http://www.facebook.com/renate.yerkes Renate Yerkes

      Actually, he is a very good actor.

    • MilaXX

      Jacket’s just a skoosh too big, but he looks a’ight.

    • http://twitter.com/mxmstrmnn max mustermann

      I don’t know where that bottom button (took me three tries to spell that right) thing comes from, but it needs to die. Also, Leo can still get it!

    • Janet B

      Not much to complain about? That’s pretty good.
      (Men have it so easy)

    • Elizabeth Davis

      Not Georg Von Trapp. More like Friederich with patchy facial hair.

    • MsALVA

      He’s aged so very well. Very handsome. Suit is a tad shiny, but I approve. Sharp.

    • http://twitter.com/monapily monapily

      So…why is is that the bottom button on a blazer should be unbuttoned? I mean, you know, if there are two. Male style neophyte here. Thx

      • BrooklynBomber

        Hangs better. Doesn’t pull across the mid-section.

        • http://twitter.com/monapily monapily

          Ah! Thanks! :)

    • Nonmercisansfacon

      Leo is having none of your ‘smile-for-the-camera’ shit photographers. You will just have to be satisfied with that bored, annoyed and slightly disdainful look. Good on you Leo!

    • PastryGoddess

      It fits, he’s shaved and washed his hair. Tan is a bit orange.

      Meh

    • berkeleygirl

      Does he really need all that foundation?

    • http://CallMeJane.com/ CallMeJane

      At least he’s not pulling a Pitt. It might be boring, but it’s not offensive.

    • http://opinionandamovie.blogspot.com/ Deitra S.

      I’ve never understood his appeal. He has a total rat face: pointy nose and squinty, shifty eyes. No, thanks. And the suit is a snoozefest. Blech.

    • BrooklynBomber

      “(because we’re tight) ”
      For some reason on first reading I thought you were saying you were already well into whatever’s on tonight’s cocktail menu.

    • spinachleaf

      His head is so large and his features so tiny. It’s like someone stuck a dairylea cheese triangle on a pumpkin.

      • Pennymac

        *hilarious snorting laughter*

    • http://twitter.com/ImekaSF Akemi

      I’m still just fascinated that his head has gotten so big since Titanic. I keep staring at his forehead, and wondering if they somehow stuffed his old head into this new head, and that’s why he always has that pinched look on his face.

    • YoungSally

      VonTrapp would be wearing something more Austrian and would never slouch.

    • Imasewsure

      Wish he would be more adventurous with the shirt or tie but he’s just doing the pole dance without sliding down the poll. Respect (and a small yawn anyway) from me… grown ups are useful in Hollywood too

    • Pants_are_a_must

      Can we stop pretending he’s attractive?

      Can we?

      Please?

      • Nonmercisansfacon

        Who says we’re pretending (whose we anyway)? He may not be to your taste but you know the old saying, something about beauty, eyes, beholder….

        • Pants_are_a_must

          I behold mainly a giant head sitting on the body of a creep in a boring suit.

          • Nonmercisansfacon

            You behold that. Don’t try generalizing your opinion.

    • http://profiles.google.com/h.e.waddell Heather Waddell

      Nice color? It is very good for him, and in most of the pictures looks somewhat brighter than your average suit.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001131282478 Jai Piper

      he looks like Orson Welles

    • prettybigkitty

      He’s completed morphing into young Jack Nicholson.

      Any deals in mens’ suits this week??

      A good looking guy mostly because of the character in his face. Nice suit.

      I never “got” him. But he’s nicely dressed.

      Beautiful fit and color on him. He looks effortlessly dashing. Why can’t more men do this?

      What an amazing color that blue is. I love it! I think he is looking really good and the suit fits him perfectly. No complains! You go Leo! :P

    • Fordzo

      For all these years, I couldn’t have given a tinker’s damn about him. But lately, he’s been revving my engines. I don’t know what it is, but I’m liking it very, very much.

    • jetpackdino

      Great actor. One of the best. What he did in The Departed changed my life. I wonder when he’ll when his Oscar.

    • kimiakay

      Not a big fan either, but I saw him in J. Edgar and thought his portrayal was excellent. I wasn’t sure he would be believable as old Hoover, but oh he was. Can’t figure out if he just hates the pole dancing, or just hates this particular pole dancing. His outfit is very meh, but not offensive in any way. He is well groomed, but I am not a fan of facial hair.

    • ItsDicey
