The actor and environmental activist, Leo DiCaprio, just made a big ‘oopsy’ and totally contradicted himself. Do you think that hopping on his private jet twice to receive an environmental award shows that Leo is walking the talk of the greenie that he claims to be?
Leonardo DiCaprio took a private jet twice to pick up an environmental award in New York – before flying back to a glitzy gala in France.
The actor and environmentalist, 41, was spotted this week in Cannes, where the Film Festival is currently underway.
But he left the French Riviera for a brief trip to New York City, where he collected an honor at the Riverkeeper Fishermen’s Ball on Wednesday, Page Six reported.
He then hopped back on another private jet to attend the amfAR gala in Antibes, about eight miles from Cannes, just 24 hours later.
DiCaprio has been accused of hypocrisy as he can often be heard preaching about saving the environment and fighting climate change – while taking private jets to do so.
The actor, who turned his Oscars speech into a pressing warning against climate change in February, accumulated more than 8,000 of air travel in just a couple of days.
He was seen in Cannes earlier this week, enjoying some downtime in his hotel and dancing at the Gotha club on Monday.
