  • Delingpole: Michael Bloomberg Joins Leonardo DiCaprio and Angry Birds’ ‘Red’ as UN Climate Envoy

    Michael Bloomberg has joined Leonardo DiCaprio and the Angry Birds’ ‘Red’ as a United Nations climate envoy. Which of these characters, you wonder, is the most absurd choice to symbolize the global war on climate change? At first glance, perhaps, it ought to be ‘Red’. ‘Red’, after all, is nothing but a cartoon character from a popular video game and has never, either in his gaming or his spin-off movie career, shown the slightest interest in anthropogenic global warming theory, carbon emissions or sustainability. That’s because his only real interest is in saving eggs from pigs.
  • (2016) Robert De Niro on His Connection to the Malaysian Corruption Scandal: "I Don't Give a Sh**"

    The actor — whose Tribeca Film Institute took a donation from those accused of embezzlement, while his son sold the prime suspect $55 million in NYC real estate — says he would give back the money if necessary. Leonardo DiCaprio is undoubtedly the highest-profile Hollywood name connected to the 1MDB Malaysian corruption scandal, which, in addition to more than a billion dollars of alleged money laundering, helped to finance his hit drama The Wolf of Wall Street. But another A-list name has appeared several times in the same orbit as the central figures in the fraud case, which is now...

    Leonardo DiCaprio has reportedly handed over to the federal government an Oscar, originally won by Marlon Brando, that was gifted to him by Red Granite Pictures, a production company that is allegedly involved with a massive Malaysian embezzlement scheme. According to Deadline Hollywood, an asset seizure request was filed against Red Granite on Thursday by the Department of Justice. Red Granite, a film production company that has worked on movies such as “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” has been accused of using millions of stolen dollars to pay for its films. The money was allegedly taken from a fund that was intended to...

  • How Leonardo DiCaprio Can Persuade Me on Climate Change

    03/19/2017 8:22:57 AM PDT · by conservatism_IS_compassion · 55 replies
    You probably know that actor Leonardo DiCaprio is a climate activist, and he is trying to persuade the world that climate change is both real and serious. Someone asked me on Twitter what it would take for DiCaprio (for example) to persuade a person like me. I’ll take a swing at that. For starters, you must separate the questions of real and serious. The real part refers to the climate models. The serious part refers to economic models. Those are different topics. If you want to convince me that climate change is real, the best approach is to abandon the...

    Leonardo DiCaprio claims to care about the Earth. He also blames mankind for the threat of climate change. But he’s unwilling to let his passion for the planet get in the way of his Oscar preening. Together with a fellow actor, DiCaprio flew a makeup artist 15,000 miles round-trip across the Pacific Ocean to tidy up their eyebrows for the 2017 Oscars, according to the Independent (UK). Dicaprio and fellow actor Tobey Maguire insisted on seeing brow artist Sharon-Lee Hamilton, despite the fact that she lives in Sydney, Australia — 7,500 miles from Los Angeles. DiCaprio must have forgotten that...

    Nearly six months after massive wildfires close to Canada’s oil sands forced one of the largest evacuations in the country’s history, affecting production, Leonardo DiCaprio’s new climate-change documentary threatens to bring unwanted, negative attention to the industry. Critics are already referring to the scenes shown in the film, particularly an aerial of the oil sands, as “terrifying”. Fisher Stevens, director of Before The Flood, which has been in the works since 2014, recently told Canadian Press he was "really horrified" by how the landscape looked in north-eastern Alberta.

    Provocative Los Angeles-based street artist Sabo has set his sights on Leonardo DiCaprio and Hillary Clinton, satirizing their respective charitable foundations and turning them into money-laundering enterprises in a series of new posters that have been put up in Los Angeles. The Oscar-winning Revenant actor and founder of the environmental-focused Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation was set to host the Democratic presidential candidate at his Los Angeles home for a high-dollar lunch fundraiser on Tuesday, but said a scheduling conflict had prevented him from hosting the event. Pop star Justin Timberlake and his wife, actress Jessica Biel, will host the event instead....

    Leonardo DiCaprio has been criticised for taking a private jet from Cannes to New York to pick up an environmental award – before jetting back to Cannes to continue partying. The actor, who in February used his Oscar acceptance speech to demand greater action to combat climate change, was honoured for his activism in New York on Wednesday. Along with the designer Ralph Lauren, DiCaprio was given a “Big Fish” award by Riverkeeper, which works to protect New York’s rivers.

    Fresh off his Golden Globe win, Leonardo DiCaprio drew ooohs, ahhs and smiles from a crowd as he was honored for his work against the climate crisis at the World Economic Forum in Davos. Then he ripped into Big Oil. The Hollywood star of "The Revenant" traded the North American snows for white Alpine slopes at a ceremony Tuesday where he announced his foundation was donating another $15 million to environmental projects, and pleaded with business leaders and other notables on hand to help battle climate change. "We simply cannot allow the corporate greed of the coal, oil and gas...

    Left work a little early yesterday to see a 4:30 showing of The Revenant starring Leonardo DiCaprio. I ended up in the slowest ticket line, but eventually got my annual $20 refillable popcorn tub, a bottle of lemonade and walked briskly to the theater since by then it was 4:50. I thought for sure I had missed the beginning, which is one my few pet peeves. Nope, previews were still on. Is America the only country where movies never start on the time posted? Thank, God for it. It’s been awhile since I’ve been to a movie, longer still since...

    Leonardo DiCaprio and Kelly Rohrbach have reportedly split. The 41-year-old actor and 25-year-old Sports Illustrated model -- who has recently been signed up to star in a big-screen Baywatch remake with The Rock -- were first linked in June of last year and apparently broke up a month ago. "They've been broken up for over a month. It was mutual. They both have intense work schedules and a lot going on in their lives right now. They both needed to take a break because of that. They are still friends and talking but it's over," a source told Us Weekly....

    From Drudge.... DICAPRIO RAPED BY BEAR IN FOX MOVIE TUE DEC 01 11:01:02 2015 ET The new movie 'REVENANT' features a shocking scene of a wild bear raping Leo DiCaprio! The explicit moment from Oscar winning director Alejandro Inarritu has caused maximum controversy in early screenings. Some in the audience escaped to the exits when the Wolf of Wall Street met the Grizzly of Yellowstone. The story of rural survivalism and revenge reaches new violent levels for a mainstream film. The bear flips Leo over and thrusts and thrusts during the explicit mauling. "He is raped -- twice!" Not to...

But those invitations were among the dozens turned down by all manner of celebrities, dignitaries and donors, according to the sources, who said the controversies swirling around the foundation and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign have made some bold-faced names and donors wary of the foundation. The glitzy Clinton Global Initiative gathering in New York, which has the lofty title “The Future of Impact,” was...
