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.”

    You are the one having issues, genius. Hypocrite? What are you talking about?

    Is she? No offense, but Leo is the one who speaks about environmentalism but spends vacations on polluting yachts several times a year, flies private ( just recently in and out of Israel )…etc.
    Have you heard about his planned trip to the Philippines that got cancelled? He was supposed to go there to promote environmental issues but it didn`t happen. In the articles about the canceled trip it was stated that it would have cost the country $1 million to get him there…

    @@51: Give me those articles.
    1. Israel is a dangerous country and he’s not going to die for the environment. Nobody would do that.
    2. I don’t know about the trip to Phillippines but maybe he had an important emergency and he is planning to go back there. If you give me the article I would be so grateful.

    The trip to the Philippines was false, they only wanted to promote themselves. Leo was never intended to go Philippinnes.

    @56 Says:

    Israel is a dangerous country and he flew there on a commercial flight before so you are not making much sense. Him flying private had nothing to do with danger. Or him floating around on luxury yachts in southern Europe? Or that`s dangerous as well?
    @sure: How do you know that it was false? I`ll look up the article that stated it would have cost the country a lot of money to get him there. Can you share your info about this trip being false? Thanks.

    If he didn’t care about the environment, he would have take private plane easly instead of strugling to land on commercila flight with 200 other travelors. It is very easy to nitpick when someone does something good but some people are just born haters cause thier lives is not as good as they hope for. Those tigers who benefits from all donation, don’t care who give money or what to save them. Samething with the environment. And by the way, Yatchs do not pollute
    environment unless the engine works by Coal. The point is that instead of appreciating your life and prove your worth for others, you try to nitpick on someone life and hold grudge for undisclosed reason. I am just sad for your life. I know you are going to response unpleasant way but it just proves my points more.

    @jaja Says:

    When did I say he always flies private? And since when aren`t yachts polluting the environment, genius?
    As I said before get off your high horses, smarty-pants. He is a hypocrite and I have the right to point it out. You are sad for me? Do you think that bothers me the least? lol

    He flies commercial when he can. Someone with his money could easily own a plane, but he doesn’t. Good for him. Ditto for the work he does on behalf of wildlife and the environment. The yachts have become a more frequent thing, and it is unfortunate. Ditto for the trashy friends like Bar, Naomi, her boyfriend, and all the other loser hangers on they bring with them. jaja, yachts use tons of gas, spew exhaust, and mess with sea life. Unlike airplanes, which connect millions of passengers every day, yachts serve no real purpose.

    Sosie Says:

    jaja, you really should educate yourself before you call someone a “nit-picker.” The only thing worse than a nit-picky hater is a willfully ignorant idoliser.

    jaja Says:

    Yes he is Hypocrite. Here i said it. Is your life better little bit now? And ya, most yatchs do not pollute and don’t burn carbon nor waste engine. So, by your standard, if he get on yacth he is hypocrite, if he drive a car, he is hypocrite, if he is on a plane he is hypocrite, if he eats hamburger, he hate animals and this is just a PR move. What else he is hypocrite on! Oh i know, he is a friend with naomi cause he is hypocrite, he date BAR cause he is hypocrite, he dropout on Mel gibson movie cause he hypocrite. And you are not hypocrite cause you say so. lol.

    many journalists killed?who?? list it! or you know only anna politkovskaya??

    “Yeah men don’t own Russia’s energy, the nation does, that’s why there are so few russian billionaires”
    i don’t follow you.How does this relate to Putin?you think he chose a lucky men and give him money?

    Alina Kabayeva??are you kiddind?lets believe in gossip too:DD

    Who had russian spy Alexander Litvinenko poisoned in London? who had Ukraine opposition leader Viktor Yushchenko poisoned? you really think that all this do Putin??of cause he can do this,I do not exclude this,but give me facts and i believe you.facts,facts,facts.always needs facts.

    Russian mob and former KGB are still a very powerfull octopus, they and Putin OWN i agree with you,he’s very powerful,and i really don’t like him at all.

    “Every nation has its shady aspects and every government lies but Russia still has many demons to fight.”
    so has every country !

    your government will always speak about problems in other countries,just because the public mustn’t know about problems in their ‘s a normal situations.every countries do’s a strategy give the people something that it distracts from more serious’s sad,but it works!

    Using your standards, I should assume your willingness to deny reality when it interferes with your need to idolize an actor means you’re really pathetic. I give credit where credit is due, but I won’t turn a blind eye to facts or engage in this simplistic, black-and-white thinking. He makes a point of saying he drives a hybrid car and flies commercial when he can. Why is that? Driving and flying have a real purpose, too. Yachting does not. There are ways to enjoy the ocean that don’t involve such a flagrant waste of energy and abuse of the environment.

    Sosie Says:


    The alleged Philippines trip was a fraud. Certain members of the tourism industry wanted him to visit, and when he refused to play along they said it was over money. He never planned on going, or asked for money.

    it doesn’t really matter what this guy does, these so called fans of his will never be happy with anything he does cause he’s dating Bar and that’s what this all boils down to… And to be honest he could be dating Mother Theresa and even she would get bashed cause the truth is they don’t want to see Leo with anyone LOL that’s the ironic part is that even if he dated a nun they would still find fault with the poor nun :/ it’s totally sad, but that’s the way it is. I feel sorry for any young male celebrity out there cause they get it the worst.., seriously bless their hearts, these b*tches are ruthless..

    What a great man, that’s wonderful that Leo is trying to protect some of the most majestic animals still on this planet, some of the species of tigers are in danger of extinction and the encroaching on their habitat is bringing them in closer contact with humans, they need to be protected and treasured, especially in places like Russia where there is a lot of illegal poaching of tigers. Big HUG to Leonardo DiCaprio. :)
