ironically to receive an environment award.
Leonardo DiCaprio faces major criticism for jetting from Cannes to New York and back again in a day’s time, burning more fossil fuel than many of us use in years.
I try not to criticize other people’s lifestyles, their beliefs, or the way they spend their money, but when it is a person like good old Leo who ceaselessly lectures the rest of us on the way we should live, I smell gross hypocrisy.
We know that he owns five lavish properties, a collection of cars, and he tools around in a private jet.
When he was promoting one of his movies a while back, two of his friends, Carey Mulligan and Armie Hammer, flew along. They told us that Leo continually feeds his French Bulldog Django rich food and Django continually passes gas during the flight.
One of them described the experience:
“It’s kind of funny the first time you get a whiff, because everyone’s looking around to see who did it. But after an hour or so it gets nauseating. By the end of the flight, the cramped toilet’s the only place to get some fresh air!
“I don’t think it’s really the dog’s fault. Most likely, it gets gas from all the rich food Leo feeds it. French Bulldogs have notoriously delicate digestive systems.”
They say the actor is so used to the odor he doesn't even smell it anymore.
Sort of like getting used to the smell of his own hypocrisy?
