Leonardo DiCaprio does the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge right

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is getting old at this point – too many people throwing water over their heads for attention without actually giving back. The celebrities involved, however, seem to be making actual donations, and Leonardo DiCaprio has gone and outdone the lot, because he’s not only done the challenge, but he donated $100,000 to the cause.

As Leo wrote on his Facebook page accompanying the video:

“Hello from Lake Athabasca, we’re here learning about the Canadian tar sands. We took a moment to join the #IceBucketChallenge movement in support of the ALS Association. My friends Chief Adam of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation challenges Dave Collyer, president of Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, Chief Courtoreille of the Mikisew Cree First Nation challenges Mark Little of Suncor Canada, and Sierra Club President Michael Brune challenges Shell CEO Ben van Beurden. And me? In addition to a donation from my foundation, I challenge Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.”

Good for Leo for being so awesome and actually ponying up some real money. More celebs should follow in his footsteps.

Leonardo DiCaprio cheered when Orlando Bloom swung at Justin Bieber

The story of what went down at an Ibiza nightclub between Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber last weekend just keeps getting better and better. We know that Orlando swung and Justin ducked, but more stuff keeps coming out of the woodworks that takes this tale to almost urban legend level. Like, for instance, the fact that Lindsay Lohan was there and tried to break the fight up, and that Leonardo DiCaprio was also there, but he actually cheered Orlando on.

From The Mirror:

Eyewitness Anastasia Skolkova, a former journalist from Spain, was the first person to break the story by posting a video on Facebook and Twitter, showing Bieber and Bloom rowing outside of a restaurant in Ibiza.

Speaking exclusively to The Mirror she said: “I went there with friends for dinner. We were on the table next to Orlando Bloom and Leonardo DiCaprio. There was also Lindsay Lohan, Puff Daddy and Erick Morillo at the restaurant. Justin said something when he came in which was aimed at Orlando, who then jumped onto a sofa to try and get at Justin. It was amazing. Everyone stood up and started watching like it was a show and clapping.

“There were actually two moments when it turned violent, it wasn’t just the one punch thrown. DiCaprio was flipping out and Lindsay Lohan was trying to call them. Justin’s face was amazing. I posted the video on Facebook so people would know about it and it’s a very crazy video. We filmed the fight and took a lot of photographs and have had offers from all over the world. It has just been crazy. I used to work as a journalist so I know how it works but I didn’t expect the response I got.”

LOL, I love how desperate this woman is to act like she’s anyone at all. Girl, no one cares about your video, we care about the actual fight. The “interest” is in the story, not you. Make your money and pipe down.

In any case, thank goodness Leo D. has some sense and was cheering Orlando on. Yeah, yeah, I know it’s immature and violence solves nothing in a wider context, but JB can used being knocked down a few pegs. After all, he’s always threatening to do it to others and acting like a big hard man who loves to fight, so he should be thrilled, right? A quick smack around the face would do him well. Might snap him back to reality.

Leonardo DiCaprio really loves summer, guys

Leonardo DiCaprio seems to be living it up this summer, hanging out on yachts, doing karate on the beach, and now apparently having a water gun fight with his friends. Nevermind that Leo is 39 years old and filthy rich but still looks like a Yeti, he’s loving the sun! And why shouldn’t he? Life is good when you’re famous and loaded, isn’t it?

This is totally the new “Leonardo DiCaprio walking” meme, by the way. Can’t wait to see all the things he’s Photoshopped into.
