    Hi ladies! So happy to see Leo taking such an active role in environmental issues!!!

  • Alti

    Will hypocrite Leo take his private jet to the meeting?

  • Koos

    he went by Boeing instead of Amtrak?

  • also…

    This isn’t jealousy. Last time he was in DC he flew private from NYC

  • John Dow

    Nothing disgusting here (except your comment). Obama is the worst president of the U.S. Hi is a racist, cop hater and a slave of his masters (aka donors and sponsors) and Leo is one of them. Obama is an enemy of the State who should be sentenced for his capital crimes against humanity and American people. Tens of thousands people all over the world have died because of his decisions.

  • Alti

    ? – is Leo not a hypocrite on this topic?

    You should be banned!!!!!!

    Go to HELL!πŸ‘ΏπŸ‘Ώ

  • Insecure Dick.aprio

    Yes, he is! Everyone talks about it…and he doesn’t hide it. Btw, he is posting here.

  • Insecure Dick.aprio

    Yes, war is just a business for them. And sure we are waiting for the “climate change” taxes.

  • Alti

    He is posting here?

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! Didn’t even know he had a place in Studio City! Interesting that he is selling two of his homes at the same time. Maybe, he’s buying another place in NYC.

  • Insecure Dick.aprio

    Yep. He is obsessed with what people think about him.

  • John Dow

    I’m already there and waiting for you to come ;)

  • Insecure Dick.aprio

    I Hit the nerve? lol Block and don’t read my comments, I’m chatting with smart people.
    Oh, yeah try to be a candidate…and there will be a revolution in USA!

  • Insecure Dick.aprio

    Lol.
    You. I like you! :)

  • Alti

    That’s bizarre, lol. Just stop being a hypocrite if he really cares – and avoid Obama at all costs, that guy is toxic to anyone’s reputation.

  • xxxDontKillRocknRollxxx

    Let’s face it.. YOU’re using HIS picture in your profile. YOU can’t get enough talking about him on HIS thread… Aren’t YOU the Obsessed and the Insecure one, Dickhead?

  • Insecure Dick.aprio

    Retardo as always…kids knew how to name you. All you can do is insulting because you know I’m right.

  • miau

    l’m just curious,which was her previous agency before img? l don’t think they rely only on her relationship with leo to hire her,they must have seen smthg on her,img is a big agency and she was more famous than kelly when k started dating leo.

  • xxxDontKillRocknRollxxx

    Can you prove it?
    It’s really sad when the resident troll seems to like Leo more than a regular.
    Why don’t you save your negativity for the DM?

  • pamplemousse

    Well, in case there was any lingering doubt, this pretty much confirms that Leo is no longer interested in being a California resident. He’s rarely there anymore.

  • Insecure Dick.aprio

    He really DOESN’T care…like really! Look at his lifestyle! Julia Roberts, Daryl Hannah, Matt Damon (partly) etc…they DO CARE. They are living a green life, an eco life. They are promoting that kind of life.
    For him it’s a free PR and a way to save taxes! That’s all. He has a very strong PR team. Basically he is a big fake, he is created by Hollywood and studios. And he is really mean to people, really bad person. Alcohol and coke addicted, that’s why he is bloated. The only people he worships are his “friends”, because they know his secrets and he pays them. And sure he kisses asses in Hollywood and Washington…

  • xxxDontKillRocknRollxxx

    Yes, i’m sure he doesn’t have better things to do…
    And btw, what exactly do YOU do for the planet?

  • also…

    OMG! How many lire times are we gonna have the same conversation? πŸ™„πŸ™„

  • also…

    Save my negativity for DM? FU

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! According to a poster on the channel, Leo owns a lot of real estate in CA. He still has other property in Malibu besides the one he is currently selling. The real estate market is good right now so he’s probably just taking advantage of it.

  • xxxDontKillRocknRollxxx

    Don’t take “troll” as offense. There has been other resident “trolls” on JJ before you who were also bigger fans than her. So this isn’t exactly the first time.:D

  • Alti

    Are you Leo?

  • John Dow

    Even a turd dropped at the McDonald’s’ restroom does better than Obama :)

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! Leo takes private jets all the time! Why do you think people are always calling him out for it? I admire all the work he does for the environment, but he would have a lot more impact if he walked the walk, instead of just talking it. That being said, he has been flying commercial a lot more than he use too. Baby steps – baby steps!
    There were several tweets from people who worked for the private jet company that flew him down to DC.

  • xxxDontKillRocknRollxxx

    Lots of haters and negativity there…

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! The person is a troll trying to get attention. Just block them!

  • also…

    And lots of denial and stupidity there. As I said FU πŸ–•πŸ»πŸ–•πŸ»

    I know. Unfortunately, I’ve seen her comments.
    I don’t think I’ll ever understand that. I mean I go to DM ONLY to defend Leo (I hate DM and DM posters), while she goes there just to help haters bash him more.
    If she’s doesn’t like Leo (she has no respect for him so she can’t like him) why does she insist following his life? It makes no sense…

  • xxxDontKillRocknRollxxx

    I know he takes private flights often and I agree it would have more impact that if he flew commercial more times.

    Thing is, private flights get him privacy and save time, which is perfectly reasonable for someone in his situation and with his schedules.

    Besides, in the end he does a lot more for the planet than any person we know and does MUCH more good for the planet than harm. His carbon footprint is insignificant compared to everything that he does.
    These ppl calling him out for not being the Perfect “role model” because he doesn’t do Absolutely Everything by the book or hasn’t stopped living his life (just because they have higher and irrealistic standards for him only because he makes movies) need a reality a check!..
    Who cares if he flies commercial, private or on a magic carpet when he does SO MUCH? Does it really have to be all or nothing? Why do ppl on focus about the 1 or 2 % he doesn’t do and forget /overlook the 98 or 99% that he does? I don’t get this and I probbably never will.

    P.S – my comment was a personal observation for real also. She’s being silly (to say the least) for having irrealistic expectations about Leo, but that doesn’t justify her supporting haters here or on DM. In the end she hates him because he’s not perfect like all the rest of us, humans.

  • xxxDontKillRocknRollxxx

    Now that I can agree…
    I just can’t decide which are worse… The ones who hate a celebrity for not being perfect or the ones who think Climate Change is like Santa… not real. LOL.
    And this is why I don’t think very highly of DM posters. They’re not very bright ppl…

  • xxxDontKillRocknRollxxx

    Maybe…I have no idea. I just think it’s ridiculous to follow someone’s life when you don’t even like him/her!…
    I don’t think he would give a tiny rat’s a$$ about criticism from fans who are mad because he’s not Jack Dawson.:D

  • also…

    blah blah blah

  • moviebuff

    He was seen with a realtor a few months back in NYC. I wouldn’t be surprised if he wanted to buy in Brooklyn. Brooklyn is hot right now and he seems to be seen over there more and more. There’s a lot to do, a younger vibe, and lots of potential for real estate if you have the cash. A lot of stars with the money to do so invest in real estate, so it’s smart. It’s also fun/addictive from what I’ve heard. People like “flipping” properties and making a profit.

    Sometimes I wonder how many places he has

  • Davina

    That’s just great. Finally!

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! But is sounds like, I hope I’m wrong, that because he is ‘Leo’ he should get a pass and be able to do what he wants. That is exactly the reason why people criticize him! I understand he does a lot for the environment! When I first started following him, he rarely traveled by private jet. He actually was more environmentally friendly. But if a person is announcing to the world that the earth is at a critical tipping point and we have to do something immediately to save it, but then turns around and hops on a private jet – can’t you see how people doubt his sincerity?How can it be that critical if he’s not willing to change his lifestyle?

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! One of the posters in the channel said he has over 10 properties just in CA! It’s a great investment!

  • Davina

    *From Academy Award Winner* yay!

    And lol at Leo interviewing people with the same clothes we see him wearing in the streets. Loved! Can’t wait.

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! Thanks for the link! Can’t wait to see it!!!
