Vladimir Putin To Leonardo DiCaprio: You're A Real Man!

Vladimir Putin To Leonardo DiCaprio: You're A Real Man!

Leonardo DiCaprio made his $1 million donation for tiger conservation Tuesday after his flight was delayed to Moscow on Sunday.

The 36-year-old actor was one of 200 passengers on board a Delta Airlines flight which was forced to make an emergency landing at JFK Airport in New York when a plane lost an engine on take-off.

“I would like to thank you for coming despite all the obstacles,” Prime Minister Putin said to Leo. His second flight faced turbulence and had to make an unscheduled refueling stop in Helsinki, Putin shared. “This is not even funny. In our country, they have a saying – a real man.”

    Usually, I really appreciate and admire Leonardo.

    But I don’t now what to think about that…sitting in front of this murderer dictator, killing innocent people, women an chilren, and many journalists…

    I’m a musician, an I think that I would not be able to stay in the same room as this b@stard.

    You can say that AGAIN!! And what a man, however i do not share the same sentiments about Mr. Putin, no power bully dictator disguised as a “humble” man, ever gets cool points from me!

    Leo really seems to care about the tigers and he really made an effort to get there. `A real man` is a nice compliment but knowing who said it about him makes it less flattering. Leo has some people around him who are rather questionable. His girlfriend, Refaeli, Naomi Campbell, her boyfriend,Doronin, now Putin, Paris Hilton… Not really an A-team!

    yup Leo is the best there is and i hope he marries Rafaeli cause they suit each other very well

    i don’t get it why y’all think that little of Putin, he never was a dictator!
    And he is the one who made Russia a stronger country and his politics made other countries respect Russia more.

    @Nice Man Says:

    That`s right. They suit each other very well. Leo is a talented man who got to the top on his own merit and Refaeli has the talent to use his fame to promote her own mediocre modeling career. Indeed match made in heaven. Too bad it`s not a win-win situation. Win for Refaeli but a HUGE LOSS for Leo. He tends to appreciate low-class it`s obvious.

I guess your pastor at your local church didn’t tell you that did he? Nor did your national TV stations, did they?! Always the stupid sheep!

    He didn’t win the democratic elections. He was appointed by B. Yeltsin. Even here in Pussia we don’t know much about Putin, he is a very reserved person. But Americans seem to know him better.

    i wonder what made you think outin is a dictator and murderer? that is utter stupid!
    he’s a strong leader and made a lot for russia. you americans and many europeans too are disinformed about whats happening in the world. you think states are trying to save the world? what states do – they intrude other countries and initiate huge economic crisises.

    YES Says:


    Their greed caused the huge economical crisis all over the world. What do you have to say about that,fellow Americans ?

    guest girl Says:

    I commend Leo for his efforts to save tigers. That’s really admirable especially that he made it to Russia after all his plane troubles.
    But if he was a ‘real man’ he would date a ‘real woman’ and he would have better friends.
    As for Putin I don’t know much of him but he seems to appreciate Leo’s efforts. It sounds like he is kissinf his b#tt.

    From Paris with Love Says:

    Ridiculous. Like Putin doesn’t have enough billionaire friends, gaz and ore magnates, mafia godfathers, who would give him 1 million dollars in a blink.

    Putin himself is one of the richest men in Europe let alone Russia. The way he gathered all his money was a little less than honorable, putting big companies in his name and saving those documents outside Russia. No one knows for sure how much he is worth but observers say he’s not far behind Bill Gates…

    So what he gets with Dicaprio is just a gullible egocentric oh-so-green movie star to improve his public image.

    sure, whatever you say. i`m everyone on this thread. lol whatever makes you happy!

    MG Says:

    the discussion is ridiculous. the most serious problem in the world, really. it was just an official meeting and leo was just a famous person invited to call people’s attention to the problem. that was his role, nothing else. and i don’t think that it is something personal to dicaprio.
    as for mr putin, he doesn’t kill civil populations, where did you get that? the murder of journalists is not a genocide, it is just an awful criminal situation. the whole political system is rotten, but it is not because of him alone. i’m from russia and believe me it is not that bad living here. i’m not his fan and i don’t like what he does but it’s just stupid saying such things.
