Leonardo DiCaprio Surprises Ellen's Audience to Talk About His Documentary

Leonardo DiCaprio made the crowd go wild when he made a surprise appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Friday (November 4).

The talk show host decided to talk about the actor’s new documentary Before the Flood and invited him to appear on the program.

“This was a three-year endeavor on behalf of Fisher Stevens, the director, and myself. We literally traveled all around the world from Greenland to Indonesia. We got to speak to some incredible world leaders, some fantastic scientists. We got President Barack Obama in the documentary, the Pope!” he said. “We’re basically trying to convey the science of climate change to the general public.”

    So Leo lands once again a big success with “Before The Flood”? He’s truly the king of hollywood. Haters gonna hate!!!

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi ladies! Love that after 20+ years of girls screaming at him, he still gets embarrassed by it! He looks fantastic! So cool that he made a suprise appearance to promote BTF!

  • moviebuff

    You bet! I’m sure the jealousy is BIG, especially since has lived his life on his terms to this point, and his appearances to promote his projects are limited, not the typical promotion shtick where celebrities try to be “like you or me”. He’s Leo. Not too many celebs can be on a first-name basis only, or appeal to the broad generations that he does.

  • Tigerlilly

    You pointed it out: He’s god*damn Leo. You even don’t need his full name so everyone knows who you are talking about. He’s an institution for himself. It’s hella impressive.

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi ladies! OFF TOPIC!!!!
    Great article about how keeping land in the hands of the Indigenous people will cut carbon emissions and slow climate change!

    He looks AMAZING. I think this is the best he’s looked in a while. Whoever did his grooming gets an A++ The hair is perfect. The beard is just enough; no neck hair. He doesn’t even look that puffy in the face/eyes…In fact, his eyes look really bright and non-squinty.

  • moviebuff

    Looking at the photos of Leo yesterday, he looks so good that I’m wondering if he had a little touch up done to his eyes….Not a bad thing. A little nip here and there is fine. My mom had a little fat removed from her eyelids/lower eyes because they got heavier as she got older. It wasn’t a big procedure at all, but it made her feel better. Maybe he’s just really happy and well-rested, but he just looks really….Fresh. Again, not a bad thing. He’s almost 42, so I don’t begrudge him anything. I’m sure most stars do this and it’s fine as long as they don’t go too far.

  • Miss Plum

    He always looks this good! I don’t notice any difference…

  • Guest

    Just rest and not so much clubbing.

  • moviebuff

    True, he’s not been seen clubbing as much. Settled Leo looks good.

  • Guest

    YES!!! Don’t know about the settled, what that suppose to mean but more rest always helps.

  • moviebuff

    Just that he’s not on the prowl so much now that he has a GF and may be in a happy relationship. If /when that changes, hello puffy Leo.

  • xxxDontKillRocknRollxxx

    True. He always looks younger when he’s not clubbing!
    In this case though, since it’s television, I suspect he has a little make-up on too.

  • disqususer111

    Do you have confirmation that he’s not on the prowl? LOL He’s promoting his documentary which is probably more important to him than his “GF.”

  • AzureRose

    BtF has reached more than 30 m people around the world bringing with it informations and explanations about the most important environment problems but also the important message that we are all responsible for our actions and for what happens around us. Every one of us is only One but together we can be thousands, millions and even billions.
    Next week there will be the big election in US. Speak out loud. The great values which have always supported the humankind progress still march on and nothing will stop them!
    Have a nice week end!

    Short question.. I saw Kevin Connolly, Jen Meyer and other friends of Leo posted about Before the Flood to advertise it, so more people would watch it.

    What would you think would be the reaction if Nina did as well? I know he keeps his private life private and maybe wouldn’t even want it but just hypothetically… Do you think it would show her support for his work and an important issue plus more articles about it (more advertising for the doc), or rather distract from the topic?

  • disqususer111

    He liked Kate Hudson’s post of BTF which I thought was pretty cool. Also, I’m not sure if anyone caught it but apparently Nina liked an instastory of one of a Leo fan’s IG. LOL I don’t think he’d let her do it even if she wanted to. He’s keeping her away from anything to do with this documentary on purpose and it’s probably because this documentary is very important to him and he thinks it will distract from the topic and bring out the crazies.

    First: congrats to Leo on his documentary and the hard work that went into it.

    Second, unfortunately her posting about it, would take away from it. People would focus on the fact she showed support.
    Articles would come out – blah supports boyfriend etc.
    People would chit chat about the meaning. Does she support him, or does she want attention. Even if her reasonings were true, it would be questioned.
    Because of who she is – she would be better off supporting him in private. He knows she supports him, the world doesn’t have to.

  • McAwesome

    Hi! you’re right..Normally (with any other couple) I wouldn’t see a problem, but since he’s always so private it probably would cause wedding headlines, because it basically never happend before. But I hope some day he finds someone (maybe outside the business) where it becomes just normal to support eachother without causing a huge media circus.

  • Miss Plum

    Good question!

  • Miss Plum

    I just watched! Very cool

  • https://disqus.com/home/channel/randomlyso/ 🌙Moon

    I’ll hold onto that wish with you.
    It really shouldn’t be a big deal who supports him, but I guess because he chose the field he’s in, he’s just stuck in it .
    Its sad.
    #someday it might be different.

  • disqususer111

    I think if he was dating a girl different than his usuals and they had been together for a significant period of time, it would be okay for her to support him on IG or twitter. I’m sure he knows that his dating life (as it is now) is a joke to most so that’s why he doesn’t let them participate or acknowledge him regarding his professional life.

  • https://disqus.com/home/channel/randomlyso/ 🌙Moon

    His world is so different … Its really sad the double standards they have to live.

    In my world , if you are with someone – you support them. No one thinks anything other than – wow she really loves and supports him.

    In his world – because he’s not the boring, settled down guy, no one focused on his work if a girl was to do that. It would be all about

    Will they marry. Is she knocked up – blah who cares.

    It would wash away his hard work.

    I don’t know about his current love or anything , but if she’s really with him to be with him, she will be happy to just support him at home.

  • disqususer111

    Agree.

  • Golddigger

    what is the best place for honeymoon?

  • pandacrze

    I saw the post on the last thread before it was deleted regarding Nina browsing a leo fan account instastories and i just want to add there is no way to like an instagram story. That was just a list of everyone on instagram who clicked on that account instastories.

  • disqususer111

    So it was showing she just watched it or did she like something?

  • moviebuff

    It probably would draw attention, especially after the People article. Part of me hopes he’s the way he is to maintain privacy AND to remain a mystery so he can slip in and out of a character as an actor. I would not want to think he’s embarrassed of his GF’s, especially after he stays in 6 month relationships with them. Shame on him if that’s the case, but I don’t think it is.

  • moviebuff

    Aw, nice Instagram message from Ellen❤️️Ellen is 😎 Leo doesn’t do a lot of talkshows, but I like his relationship with Ellen.

    On one hand you have very long time friends of his showing support and on the other a 6 months old relationship with a fame hungry model. Gisele showed support and mentioned him ( after losing to Jamie Foxx ) but after years of dating and I believe attending the show with him.

    Since nobody really takes this relationship seriously and since she never showed any interest in the topic of the documentary it would only be a tabloid story. jmo

    I can respect that.
    I don’t really know much about this relationship. So I don’t know what stories would come up.
    I kind of bailed out of his love life after sticking around through Kelly I was simply basing my assumption of what would be posted off what happened last time.

    Hope you’re having a good night.

  • also…

    Since he is very private and his girlfriends usually don’t talk about him or his professional life in public it would be a big deal. Since it’s never really happened before I’m sure it would get noticed and especially the gossip sites would have a field day with it. It’s not even just specific to Nina. I think it would have been the same with Kelly as well. In general they don’t talk about him.

  • Fangirl

    Leo looks so handsome (as always), but I hope he dressed down a bit, I mean, most celebs that Ellen interview are just dressing so casual and laid-back, like how he dressed down when he appeared on the show back in 2008. It’s not a red carpet event after all. JMO.

    She just watched it, there’s no option to like an instastory.

  • https://disqus.com/home/channel/randomlyso/ 🌙Moon

    I think the stigma that no one talks about him , is what made something that shouldn’t be a big deal – such a big deal.

    Its sad.
    Thanks for clearing that up.

  • moviebuff

    For some reason, it makes me feel good that Jen Meyer is supporting BTF.

  • disqususer111

    Thanks

    InStyle noted how 😍 Leo looked during his Ellen appearance today. Do we really think Ellen called him up a few hours before taping to invite him to appear? On Twitter she said she texted him and he was @ her show 3 hrs later. You think he texted, “today, boo boo? ” 😉 If he was home and relaxed, it could be why he looked so good. He woke up like this.

    Hi! He might have, but did you see the photos from The Ivory Game screening that were taken later that same day? His eyes looked puffy and he looked very tired. Someone on BZ thought he might have cold because he was sniffling on Ellen. Looking at the photo, he does look like he could be under the weather.
