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

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

    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

    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.

    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.

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

    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 Says:

    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.

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

    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? Says:

    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?

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

    Elli Says:

    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!!!!!!!!

    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 Says:

    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.

    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.

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

    WingNut13 Says:

    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.
