Leonardo DiCaprio responds to that Golden Globes Lady Gaga GIF (VIDEO)
Lady Gaga won a Golden Globe last night, but all anyone will remember is Leonardo DiCaprio's face as she walked by him to accept her award.
(Sorry, Stefani!) While Gaga walked to the stage for Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie for American Horror Story: Hotel, she accidentally brushed DiCaprio — apparently a huge mistake. DiCaprio's terrified face, luckily caught by a camera operator who deserves a bonus, makes for the first truly great GIF of 2016.
DiCaprio, whose own win as Best Actor in a Drama for The Revenant is getting eclipsed by this fun little meme, commented on the moment. "Oh, lord, that's trending, huh?" he said to Cameron Mathison of Entertainment Tonight. Are we more surprised by the face or the fact that DiCaprio knows the word "trending"?
The Revenant also won Best Motion Picture Drama and Best Director for Alejandro G. Iñárritu. DiCaprio has two other Best Actor Globes for The Aviator and The Wolf of Wall Street.
He offered a very normal explanation for what was (ugh) a very normal reaction: "I just didn't know what was passing me. That's all!" What happened to celebrities being omniscient?
More important, what happened to DiCaprio only dating models? He brought his father George along on the red carpet last night, telling ET: "I'm happy to bring my dad. I don't think he ever gets to go on stuff like this, so it's gonna be a fun night for us."
