DiCaprio: Go Green Now Before It's Too Late

DiCaprio: Go Green Now Before It's Too Late

Writer/Producer/Narrator Leonardo DiCaprio stands sandwiched between co-director sisters Leila and Nadia Conners at the photocall for their documentary The 11th Hour at the Palais des Festivals during The Cannes Film Festival on Saturday.

“Global warming is a reality. It is happening,” DiCaprio told reporters. “In the last year, people are taking this issue more seriously than they ever have, and it’s a direct result of affecting people’s emotions in a cinematic format.”

The long-time environmental activist added, “We are the largest superpower in the world. We’re are also the largest polluters. It’s ultimately us as the largest democracy in the world to be the ones to set an example … if we don’t do it, how is the rest of the world supposed to follow?”

    I commend leonardo for talking about global warming, we have to change our living habits, but I don’t agree with everything being about global warming today, it seems like every few years there is something being are all worked about, a few years ago it was all about end global poverty, and now you hardly ever see it in the news anymore, caring should not be a fad

  • Eve

    I am amazed by the size of Leonardo Dicaprio´s head. As if he had hydrocephaly.

  • Toronto via La

    did all of you guys notice how great leo’s skin is, i guess wearing those hats and sunglass and sunscreen really helped in protecting him from the harmful rays of the sun, just looking at his skin makes me want to run to the drugstore right now and buy sunscreen

  • sasha

    I am sure his documentary is fine and well done. But I just hope it is not some “anti-american” propaganda type of movie. If the scientists want to send a message to the U.S. polluters, I wish they’ll send it one to China and India as well. They are surpassing U.S. , for sure.

    Happensto his eyes on the pic#3

  • ousslander

    is he he part chinese? Btch is always squinting, open your eyes. Let him preach about global warming while he flies around in private planes.

  • Anonymous

    He has no business speaking. He is not any kind of an expert on anything.

  • sd

    It’s good that more people are aware of global warming including actors like Leo D. But he still comes off to me like a spoiled brat.

  • WingNut13

    And YOU are, anonymous? Gimme a freakin’ break. DiCaprio has done extensive homework on this subject. Furthermore, those who are interviewed for his documentary are the experts – he doesn’t do so himself in the film.

    Perhaps if you actually were educated on the subject of the film, instead of just spouting nonsense about some actor you don’t like, you might know this.

    People like you who are so negative towards those who try to bring consciousness and solutions for our world problems are the culprits who are causing these problems. Didn’t your mama teach you that if you can’t say anything nice, just shut-up?? I am sure Gore is glad somebody is stepping up in the plate to help him spread the word. And don’t even start on my support of Gore’s stand on global warming. If you want some example, there is Otzi the Iceman. If that glazier has not been melting he probably wouldn’t have been found. Maybe this is the reason BP got that tattoo. Who knows, maybe it’s his reminder to be conscious on his Green Project in NO. My 2 cents.

  • Kate

    Leo is so handsome : ) Its good he has a cause, and he’s stuck with it. Its not a fad for him.

  • Gem

    God he is so fit now! I would follow him anywhere, lol!

    I never used to fancy him (throughout the whole Titanic thing etc) but in the last few years when he’s been in excellent films, he’s just really grown in my eyes & is so hot to me right now!

  • yeahso?

    while i do really applaud his message, I think that it’s very hypocritical to say these things at the Cannes film festival. I mean, all of these people got their by jet/plane (most likely private) which uses HOW much fuel? anyone?

  • Mia

    Wow i haven’t seen him this good in ages!

  • Elli

    THANK YOU SO MUCH for these wonderful pics! I loooove them!
    He is such a dedicated and distinguished person, and I love him to pieces! It takes some courage and lightning to carry such a message about the state of the earth into the world – and Leonardo has both of it. I don’t think, there’s any question about Global Warming existing or not. It’s here, even in my region of Germany, we can experience its outcomes…I never thought it would be before two years or so ago.
    I’m really proud that Leo has the guts of presenting a film with a vision for the future. He is my hero…..LEO4EVER!!!!!!!!

  • http://- mollysue

    He’s awsome! Smart, talented and so hot. You go Leo, you’re the king of the world.

  • Brooke

    pouah >.

  • baby

    He s ok not that hot or anything. He has this circle baby face. I think we need to appulad him for his work on the global warning though.

  • WingNut13

    yeahso, I understand what you mean…but tell me, how do you expect him to arrive in Cannes to promote the film? The bottom line is, ANY form of travel he – or any of us, for that matter – uses will, in some way, cause detriment.

  • Anonymous

    Perhaps YOU would like to know that Leonardo DiCaprio is not any kind of a scientist. He has not even been to college. Sorry, but I don’t take advice from actors. Al Gore is not an expert on this matter, either. These are facts, not opinions.

  • Sharon

    He is ugly.

  • Anonymous

    After new research, a growing number of prominent scientists are now skeptics of man-made global warming.

    Read this article: .

  • WingNut13

    News flash, Anonymous Asshat: DiCaprio has never claimed to be anything BUT an actor. One who is concerned about the environment.

    He’s certainly a lot more productive than you, with your silly anti-environmental postings.

    After new research, a growing number of prominent scientists are now skeptics of man-made global warming.

    -I read that, and first of all it’s an article, not a scientific, peer-reviewed journal. It has clipped together statements from some scientists and a few others, but it might as well be some asshole off the street because there is not scientific data collected to support their OPINIONS…not against man-made global warming, not for their crackpot theories. Nothing. I know, you would hope that people wouldn’t publish things like that unless it was 100% true, but it’s not held to the same standards as a peer reviewed journal would be, so they can do what they do. Try this reading this, and tell me whose information holds up.

    SEXY never left !!!!! He is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!! FREAKIN HOT !!

    Choose what you want to believe, but “global warming” is a big money-making industry right now.

  • Anonymous

    Actors should not give their opinions about anything but acting.

  • Michael

    People have cared about global warming for decades. Leo Dicaprio wasn’t some sort of heroic maverick, as it was already a scientific consensus. Al Gore, I give props to b/c he was hurt politically for his beliefs and he refused to back down (even back in ’92 he was singled out as a “tree hugger”). Leo, in reality, took no risks.

  • johanna

    Leo looks amazing in theese pictures, likte JT song: Sexy Back … yeaah leo is back and SEXY ;D

    He`s sooo beautiful. I love him!! This documentation is a great job and very important!

    Anonymous is a damn fool if s/he thinks that destruction of the environment is a myth. Anyone with half a brain can see it all around us.

  • Rose

    Thank you Jared for the lovely pics of Leo!! Leo never said he was an expert, thats for the scientist in his film, he just put the film together..geesh! He is just a concern citizen trying to do his part, so why not?
    So how are environmentalist, or government environmentalist suppose to get around the world? by hot air balloon? rowing a boat across the oceans? You have to use planes…until they can find another means of getting around, but for now they have no choice. They are working on it to find solutions, already the hybrid cars started its a first step in the right direction.
    As for #29…your comment is very ignorant, Ronald Regan was an actor before he became President of United States, so was Arnold ever you spell his name, also an actor, who became governor of California, both have done very well in the political field.
    Why can’t actors speak out, or anyone for that matter, they are all concerned citizen like any of us. If you don’t like what they say, don’t listen!
    I applaud Leo for doing what he believes in, and spreading out the message to take care of the earth, we can all do our bit, its through education, and doing something about it.

  • una ragazza

    LEo BELLo ? no !!!!!!!

  • Anonymous

    Ronald Reagan, that’s how you spell it, was much more than an actor. You cannot compare Leonardo DiCaprio to him, by any means. Ronald Reagan was also a college graduate, with a degree in economics and sociology, and he served in the armed forces during World War II. He was not really that famous of an actor, by the way.

    I don’t listen to actors to learn how to live. They, as the “jokers” of our society today, have no business telling the public what to do, and that is exactly what they try to do. They ought to try studying acting more. Their salaries do not match their talents.

    “Global warming” is run by big money. The fact that the public is unaware of this is dreadful. The media gets louder as the “evidence” gets smaller. The earth has always been changing. The average temperature for this past April was COOLER than normal across this country.

  • Rose

    funny you don’t mention Arnold education..oh well, whatever! Leonardo gives alot of money towards environmental causes,at least he is doing something about it. I don’t know what the others do. If you don’t like what actors have to say, nobody is forcing YOU to listen to them, but they DO have a right like anyone else to voice their opinions, they pay their taxes, vote like anyone else. What country are you talking about being cooler? Ronald REAGAN was a very popular in HIS days of acting, tons of films he did from the 1930s to 1960′s FOR your info..check this out

  • Anonymous

    The United States of America was cooler this past April than normal. Sorry, Ronald Reagan was not considered one of the biggest or most famous actors of his day. I know what movies he did, and he even said, “I was the Errol Flynn of B movies.” I don’t care about Arnold S. Anyway, Leonardo DiCaprio is not in the government. He is merely an actor, and one with little education, at that.

    I don’t listen to actors, however, the media gives them too much air time. If they truly wanted a good career in acting, they would keep quiet about topics other than acting. An air of mystery is much better.

  • vcx

    He has a big baby face :D

  • WingNut13

    No, you certainly CAN’T compare DiCaprio to Reagan. Given Reagan’s atrocious record on issues of social justice and humanitarianism, it’s an insult to Leo to compare the two.

    Furthermore, an intelligent person understands the difference between formal education and intelligence. DiCaprio is obviously extremely well-read; that much comes across in interviews that have nothing to do with his environmental views.

    I’d suggest to you, Anonymous, that you get off your high horse. A college education is certainly no guarantee of intelligence, and there are plenty of politicians out there who are living proof.

  • Irma

    I love him so much!!!! He is so talented, handsome, smart, succesful and the fact that he is so passionate about the environment and making people conscious about the problem of global warming makes him even hotter!!! He is my ideal man.

  • observer

    To whomever that said he has great skin, are you blind? Older guys like Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt have better skin and look 10x better than him.

  • angela

    Leo has great skin no pimples there, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I happen to think Leo is hot, the whole package. A very classy man indeed.

  • Lindsay

    Leo is looking lovely as usual :)
