Leonardo DiCaprio is Icy Hot
Coverboys Leonardo DiCaprio and Knut the polar bear look icy hot on the April 2007 Green Issue of Vanity Fair. Inside is a sneak peek of 11th Hour, Leo‘s documentary that examines the state of the global environment. Here’s the dish from V.F.:
While the Bush administration hems and haws over adding polar bears to the endangered-species list, the world celebrates the birth of Knut, the darling cub born in captivity at the Berlin Zoo. Now three and a half months old, little Knut has become a powerful (if not controversial) symbol of what this planet has to lose to global warming. Such ecological concerns are familiar to actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio, so it seemed natural to pair these two handsome boys on Annie Leibovitz‘s cover for this year’s Green Issue. In these behind-the-scenes images, Leibovitz and V.F. senior photography producer Kathryn MacLeod capture Knut at home in Berlin, and DiCaprio at the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, in southeast Iceland. We brought them together the only way we could, in a photomontage.
