Report: DiCaprio Hit With Bottle at Party (a dozen stitches required for wound)
AP on Yahoo ^ | 6/18/05 | AP - Los Angeles

Posted on 06/18/2005 10:28:49 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

LOS ANGELES - Leonardo DiCaprio was hit with a bottle while attending a Hollywood party given by Paris Hilton's ex-boyfriend and needed about a dozen stitches to close a wound near his ear, People Magazine reported on its Web site.

The magazine said DiCaprio was at a party at about 4 a.m. Friday at the home of Rick Salomon when a woman struck him with what appeared to be a beer bottle. No ambulance was called but friends took the actor to a hospital where he received about a dozen stitches, People said.

Los Angeles Police Officer Jason Lee, a department spokesman, could not immediately confirm the report.

"I have received no notification of that sort. That doesn't mean that nothing happened, but normally we would get those kind of notifications here," Lee said.

A call to DiCaprio's spokesman, Ken Sunshine, was not immediately returned, but People said the spokesman had confirmed the assault.

"While leaving a small private gathering, Leo was attacked by a woman who was trespassing and had been repeatedly asked to leave the property," Sunshine told the magazine. "The attacker struck him with a glass object before being restrained by witnesses."

The attack was not expected to affect DiCaprio's work on a Martin Scorsese movie, "The Departed," which is shooting in Boston and New York, People said.

I don't know about you, but if I'm still at a party at 4 a.m., something's wrong.

And hitting DeCaprio on the side of the head with a bottle might sound like the perfect solution.

If they catch her I hope they let her off with a slap on the wrist. She was obviously not in her right mind, but psychologically scarred by watching "Titanic" years ago. May she find inner peace from whacking Mr. DiCaprio with a beer bottle.

"The attacker struck him with a glass object before being restrained by witnesses."

See? Not EVERYBODY loved "Titanic".

Lady - remember next time: it's 'club' first to break the end of the bottle, then 'thrust' with the remainder.

Sent to the ER by a chick. But he's "dreamy," I suppose.

12 STITCHES?! Whew! That sounds like a doozy...

Y'know, I think the guy's a pretentious jerk-wad, but I don't wish this for him... As for me, prayers up.

Another left wing loony star goes down, makes my day.

Damn hitting him in the head was the only place where he couldn't be hurt. To much mush for brains to cushion the blow.

Titanic was the worst movie I have ever seen.

Although Dicaprio is a pretty good actor.

He was good in Catch Me If You Can.

I'm not a DiCaprio fan (I think he looks like a kid) but "Titanic" is a visual masterpiece and is the highest grossing movie of all time for very good reasons. A helluva lot of people love the movie and we're not all stupid or tasteless.

Being the good liberal that he is, I'm sure he recycled it ....

I haven't really like DiCaprio in anything he has done other than the movie he was born to play in, "What's Eating Gilbert Grape".

No, I didn't, and I never will.

The only reason why I saw Titanic was because my girlfriend (at the time) dragged me to it.

It was sheer torture.

My thought during watching Titanic was, "just sink already."

I was so happy when that thing hit the iceberg...I was thinking to myself "wow, time is flying" as I knew it was a 3 hour movie.

Sadly, that was just the end of the beginning, not the beginning of the end.

OK, let's count the weird phrases here:
"Paris Hilton's ex-boyfriend"
"a woman struck him"
"Ken Sunshine"
"had been repeatedly asked to leave the property"
"a Martin Scorsese movie, "The Departed""

This is California. If it was him throwing bottles he'd be acquitted, but since she perpetrated an assault against a celebrity, she'll get 20 years.

I was not able to suspend my disbelief for even one second.

The story was absolutely implausible, especially when you consider the times.

It is also the most historically accurate, as well as best acted. A great film.

Just for the record - adjusting for inflation the biggest grossing films are:
Gone with the Wind
Star Wars
The Sound of Music
E.T.
The Ten Commandments
Titanic

The list is actually rather interesting, and has quite a few surprises in it.

Me too. Back when it was being over hyped, I vowed never to see it, despite pressure from girlfriends. I still got subjected to that crappy song way too many times though.

Yeah -- the song was completely unavoidable. But we beat that movie & it feels good. ~dance~
