Leonardo DiCaprio is Icy Hot

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.

Check out the video footage of Knut and more outtakes here.

    Oh NO Says:

    Oh no Leo…

    You sold your heart to the devil(Vanity Fair)…

    this is their game:

    1″) look for an up and coming star
    2.) make him feel comfortable. i.e. give him goodies here and there such that he can talk freely
    3.) then do a turncoat and smear him.

    Leo – happened to Brad via his ex-wife. Watch your back…as in …watch out for a old fugly hag with a blonde bop hairdo going by the name Leslie Bennett. Whatever you do…DO NOT GET INTERVIEWED BY THIS HAG

    The Leo & Knut cover is the May 2007 issue, not the April 2007 issue. The April issue is already out and is the Sopranos cover.

    Great cover shot. Leo is yummy. Plus, he’s been involved in environmental issues long before it became popular so props to him for that.

    thanks mm for the clarification, I was just about to run to the newstands to pick up the leo issue, I am curious to see what they say about the environment, I am a geography major, when it comes to saving the environment its important that we don’t follow propoganda, you have to ask which environments are we saving and why, its not as black and white as they paint it, the environmental movement sometimes overlooks the concerns of natives peoples, of the fact that the environments that we are trying to save are socially constructed, they are not natural and pristine, environments have been changing for centuries, it is important to always question and be critical, while the environmental momenent is hot right now, we should be careful in making it a fad, magazines such as vanity fair are buying into this media blitz on the environment and they are profiting from it, the whole idea of green is problematic,

    Knut — that’s a great name for 2007!

    I like Leo ever since “Titanic” and he’s doing the damn thing on the big screen and off.

    I’m definitely gonna get involved with Mother Earth this year!

    That is a wonderful cover and I am really looking forward to receiving the May issue. This isn’t the first VF cover for Leo – he appeared on the cover of the December 2004 issue which included a fabulous article on his career and collaboration with Martin Scorsese. Leo DiCaprio just goes from strength to strength as an actor and is maturing into a gorgeous MAN.

    gets so much respect.The next day,the interviewers comment on what a classy

    I respect Leo’s commitment to his chosen cause, informed & intelligent with a long history, just like Ed Norton and Angelina Jolie for example when they speak of what they’re concerned about, you can tell they’re not bandwagoner. Re Vanity Fair, this is the second Green Issue I believe? The first one was the literally green cover with Al Gore et al. Ed Norton has also done docos for Nat Geo channel, they were very good! I prefer to meet Knut though, sorry Leo! :)

    Little Knut is really cute. I hope he will make people aware of environmental problems, protection of species and animal welfare. There are only 20.000 polar bears left and they are threatened by the human race. And I respect di Caprio for his activities in environmental protection. This is much more respectable than the so called humanitarian activities and donations pretended by others in order to improve their bad image. Flying from continent to continent in a private jet won’t save the world.

    I love Knut…he is so cute. Even Haribo, which is like a company that makes candy has released a special Knut candy. The news in Germany are writing about him every day. Knut is on this month’s Cover of the German Vanity Fair. They showed like a picture of a polar bear which got agressive and killed their mate. All because of friggin Global Warming. Everybody should help making a change. I mean….at least for the sake of cute polar bears like Knut.
    Bye the way…how do you guys pronounce his name?
    In German the syllable u is not pronounced short. It’s like Knuuuut.

    Pick up any magazine the world over and you will see shots of Leo the environmental crusader smoking.

    And as we should all know by now smoking is not just bad for our health but also bad for the environment, from the toxic fumes that are released into our atomsphere to the butts left in the ashtrays or simply dropped on the ground ready to be washed into our oceans and rivers.

    As far as I’m concerned I’m sick and tired of celebrities jumping on the environment bandwagon then seeing them smoking on beaches or walking out of clubs or walking down the street shopping. Leo may have been on this bandwagon long before publicits suggested to their celebrity clients to also jump on, but at the end of the day he still smokes so how can he be taken seriously on environmental issues.

    Must admit looks great though.

    Another cover with Leo. The guy is everywhere. And soon he will begin promotion for his new movie that’ll come out in fall. With every other actor people would complain about overexposure.
