Leonardo DiCaprio caused a sensation last night at the Screen Actors Guild Awards at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
The actor was there to pick up his first-ever SAG award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for “The Revenant,” but the world was more interested in his role as Hot Guy Inhaling on a Vape Pen for his appearance in the audience. The vaping tool appeared to be black, which matched his tuxedo.
This isn’t the first time DiCaprio’s vape habits have made news. Last October, Miley Cyrus revealed to Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” that when she performed on the “Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special” earlier that year, DiCaprio was present, as was his mother, and his vape pen.
“I was feeling this emotion because there’s, like, a kind of etiquette-cy of when you’re there, you’ve got to pass that s—t, Leo,” Cyrus shared. “And he never did. So that was weird to me. He wasn’t passing the vape.” It’s unclear if — although, one could suppose, highly unlikely that — Leo passed his vape to other SAG-ers.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the DiCaprio vaping incident wasn’t televised. E! Online was among several outlets that saw the vaping as either an erotic or a bro moment, reporting: “[Y]ou’ll see the happy couple in a warm embrace, DiCaprio’s mouth stands open just so, poised for a hit of that sweet, sweet vapor.”
Last summer, the actor was spotted vaping while “living it up on the Caribbean island of St Barts on a luxury yacht which costs an eye-watering $410,000 a week to hire” along with “a gaggle of stunning women who are staying with him on the yacht.”
He was also spotted at last year’s Art Basel in Switzerland, checking out the art with his vaporizer in hand.
And a video posted last December features a “Leonardo DiCaprio vs Tom Hardy – vape-off!” Both men appeared in “ The Revenant.” DiCaprio has been nominated for an Academy Award for Actor in a Leading Role for “The Revenant.” Hardy has been nominated for an Academy Award for Actor in a Supporting Role for “The Revenant.” DiCaprio has never won an Oscar, despite having been nominated six times. If DiCaprio and Hardy win this year, we’ll have to assume it was the vaping.
