Hypocrisy files: Leonardo DiCaprio

I am always amazed at how the hypocrisy of the rich, the famous, the politically correct and all those who believe they can dictate how others behave is glossed over. I used to think that being “two-faced” or “speaking with a forked tongue” was about as low as it was possible to get. But I hadn’t realised then that being a hypocrite was a fundamental human right.

“Do as I say (not as I do)”. “I know better what is best for you”. “It is for your own good”. “It’s for the common good”. “It’s what the majority wants”.

Di Caprio, he of the “Titanic”, is a high-school dropout but fancies himself as an environmental activist. He gets invited by fawning “groupies” to give evidence to the UN on environmental matters.

BUT

Showbiz411:

Leonardo DiCaprio with his friends and family used the private Sony jet to fly back and forth Los Angeles to New York last year as if it were a yellow taxi.

Amy Pascal approved hundreds of thousands of dollars to ferry Leo, his mother, his manager, his manager’s brother, and Leo’s posse pals in and out of New York. They left a carbon footprint the size of Godzilla’s left foot.

Leo also got the Sony jet to fly from Las Vegas to Los Angeles for $12,000. The flight lasts 1 hour. (Actually $26,000 round trip.)

The irony is that Leo does not make movies for Sony Pictures. His films have almost all been with Warner Bros., Paramount, and Miramax/Weinstein. His current film, “The Revenant,” is with Fox. Sony wanted him to play Steve Jobs in a film that never came to be. Michael Fassbender is playing Jobs at Universal.

The other irony is that DiCaprio waxes on and on about the environment. His whole gang could have gotten on a JetBlue flight for considerably less. And they would have had TV and extra legroom.

Sony emails regarding billing approvals for different trips in amounts including $59,000; $37,206; and $63,600. The trips include catering and ground transportation.
