Who knew Mark Wahlberg and Leonardo DiCaprio hated each other? I didn’t, but they did for a long time. Apparently this has been going on since 1995 when Mark got a part in The Basketball Diaries because Leo didn’t take him seriously as an actor or something. Don’t worry, though – they’re pals now!
From The Hollywood Reporter:
He started to dream big, but others found his aspirations laughable — not least Leonardo DiCaprio, who was openly hostile when it was suggested Wahlberg should appear opposite him in the 1995 drama The Basketball Diaries. “Leonardo was like, ‘Over my dead f—ing body. Marky Mark’s not going to be in this f—ing movie,’ ” says Wahlberg. “Because we’d had a thing — I didn’t even realize it, [but] I was a bit of a dick to him at a charity basketball game. So he was like, ‘This f—ing asshole is not going to be in this movie.’ ”
Thanks to the perseverance of casting director Avy Kaufman, DiCaprio reluctantly agreed to read with Wahlberg. “So I come in and I do the audition and I kind of look at him and he kind of looks at me, and then we do a scene, and they’re like, ‘Hmm, this f—ing dude’s pretty good, right?’ ” Wahlberg says, laughing. “The next thing you know, boom, we’re hanging out.”
I don’t mind Mark Wahlberg as an actor. I don’t think he’s anything special, but he’s a damn sight better at making movies than he was at making music. Also, I can totally see these two butting heads. Leo takes himself seriously as an actor and Mark just doesn’t seem to give a fuck, so that’s kind of a recipe for disaster.

Some dude is trying to sell Leonardo DiCaprio‘s old Lexus for $20,000 when it’s probably worth half as much. It’s from 1999 and has 148,091 miles on it. But this dude, Brian thinks he can get that much because, according to TMZ,
the former service manager at the Beverly Hills dealership told him Gisele was a passenger in the car several times when Leo dropped it off for service.
So I guess he’s relying on gross Gisele fans to buy the car. He should really aim for the person spending millions to go to space with DiCaprio.
There’s a relevant Seinfeld for this:

Leonardo DiCaprio apparently slept with a whole slew of young models while he was hanging out in Cannes and frankly, I’m concerned, as this is totally unusual and unexpected behavior from Leonardo DiCaprio. I mean, think about it. Leonardo DiCaprio? With models? Having sex with them? It’s just so not him.
Here’s the latest in Leonardo DiCaprio Is Better Than You Are, So F-ck You news (from Star magazine via Celebitchy):
Leonardo DiCaprio has always had a penchant for leggy models, but the playboy actor outdid himself in Cannes, hooking up with SEVEN women!
“It’s incredible – even for him!” marvels a source. “They were all young gorgeous model types, just the kind of girl he likes. He doesn’t even have to try, they just follow him around.”
Leonardo skipped the Australian premiere of The Great Gatsby so he could stay in the south of France and party on his yacht during the film festival!
“Leo really knows how to throw a party… it was almost Gatsby-esque in how opulent it was. Everyone knows that if Leo’s throwing a party, it’s going to be a blast!”
I hope he used protection. The article then goes on to contradict itself and say that Mr. DiCaprio is “ready to settle down” and go the Bradley Cooper route by dating 20-year-old German model Toni Garrn.
What is the BIG DEAL over this guy? Titanic-era Leo I TOTALLY get, but after the ’90s he started to look like an overgrown baby. It’s like he has perpetual preteen face. I don’t get it.

Leonardo DiCaprio isn’t known for being an eccentric, quirky, or flat-out bizarre celebrity. Quite the opposite. Which is why it’s kind of weird to see these photos of him walking around Venice, Italy in a strange black mask…complete with a slice of pizza, because, you know, why not? This will probably be the first and only time we will ever compare Leonardo DiCaprio to Michael Jackson, so let’s enjoy it.
I don’t know how we even know this is him, but E Online is standing behind it, and I trust them. They made sure to make a Man in the Iron Mask reference, which is great, because now I don’t have to.
He was also seen walking around pulling the hood of his hoodie firmly down over his face. Still not as creepy as this though.
The hell is he doing? Guess he’s taking Cara Delevingne’s alleged rejection a little too seriously.
I’m impressed he made it safely into his gondola. How awesome would it have been if he missed and fell into the canal?

Leonardio DiCaprio is super cool and it only makes sense that he and a fan would go into goddamn motherf-cking space together. I thought this was a joke, but it isn’t, it’s real. THIS IS THE FUTURE. From The Los Angeles Times:
I haven’t won an Oscar. Time to go into space. — Leonardo DiCaprio
No, just kidding. From The actual Los Angeles Times:
A guest at a charity auction at Cannes has paid 1.2 million euros ($1.5 million) for a trip into space with Leonardo DiCaprio.
AmFAR, a nonprofit devoted to AIDS research, held the auction Thursday night at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc as part of its 20th annual Cinema Against AIDS event at the French film festival.
The winning bidder paid to travel into orbit on a Virgin Galactic spaceship in a seat next to DiCaprio’s sometime in 2014.
Virgin Galactic, a commercial spaceflight company owned by Richard Branson’s Virgin Group, has accepted more than $70 million in deposits from about 580 individuals who wish to travel to space.
The company is currently accepting bookings for the trips for a deposit of $200,000.
I never thought space travel would be so widely accessible. And if you think about it, it really is. Guarantee you no one in the 1960′s ever thought you would be able to travel into space via a commercial airline company for $200k which is A F-CKING STEAL TO GO TO MOTHERF-CKING SPACE.
Guess we can assume the winning bidder wasn’t Cara Delevinge, AM I RIGHT?
