Leading an “earth-friendly” life indeed…
Leonardo DiCaprio starts New Year celebrations early on a luxury yacht
Daily News: Jonah Hill may only have made a cameo appearance in Django Unchained, but it was long enough for him to make an impression on co-star Leonardo DiCaprio. The unlikely pair was spotted hitching a ride on a luxury yacht together on Friday afternoon in Sydney.
The carrier seemed to have ‘The Darling’ printed on it, which could be the name of the hotel Leo and Jonah were staying at, so may well have been filled up with a few complimentary toiletries to take on the yacht, just in case there’s a moisturising emergency. The hotel, conveniently offers luxury hotel rooms and stunning views from the Sydney Harbour Bridge, so it’s the perfect location for a quick boating trip.
As the ship embarked on its scenic route which offered sights like the world famous Sydney Opera House, was spotted chatting to a gaggle of girls.
Whether they had arrived with or separately from the actors isn’t known, but they no doubt enjoyed the rest of the boat trip in close proximity.
However as the Wolf On Wolf Street star is rumoured to be dating former Neighbour’s actress Margot Robbie – they met on the New York set of the aforementioned movie – maybe the female company was more for Jonah’s benefit.
Their presence in Sydney is reported to be part of a New Year’s party to rival any other. A slew of celebrities – including Jamie Foxx, Chace Crawford and DJ Samantha Ronson – flew into Sydney with Leo on Friday, to welcome in 2013 in Sydney before heading back to the U.S, more specifically, Las Vegas for round two of New year antics.
According to The Charity Info Blog, DiCaprio is a committed environmentalist. In fact, because of his involvement in charity and activism, he has received praise from environmental groups and respect from local communities.
The actor founded an organization after his own namesake. The Leonardo DiCaprio Organization fosters awareness of environmental issues through partnerships with other organizations with the same goal, such as Natural Resources Defense Council, Global Green USA, the International Fund For Animal Welfare, and National Geographic Kids.
DiCaprio also brings awareness on issues regarding global warming, and promotes the use of alternative and renewable energy resources.
Ah, let’s see. One roundtrip flight to Sydney from Los Angeles – 4.18 metric tons of CO2. Add some more in for stopovers in Vegas. But I’m sure the yacht is one that is eco-friendly, well maybe not.
But maybe the luxury hotel he’s staying at, The Darling, is eco-friendly too.
