Leonardo DiCaprio has got a fresh new ride to toy around with.
The Hollywood superstar emptied his wallet with at least $100,000 to ride around in the 2012 Fisker Karma.
The Karma might be the most anticipated hybrid car ever and gets around 85 miles-per-gallon when on electric. This means that Leo won’t have to show up in a Prius.
Other notables who are in line for this car are Al Gore and Colin Powell.
This car saves the environment and still makes the driver look dope. It is less than one eighth the price of the world’s most expensive hybrid car, the Porsche 918 Spyder.

The couple ended their relationship last week after going through a rough patch.

I’ve added 104 scans from “The Leonardo DiCaprio Album”, a book about his professional and personal life with lots of information:
A couple of weeks ago, Warner Bros mentioned that Baz Luhrmann’s 3D adaptation of The Great Gatsby with Leo DiCaprio was officially in the works, coming soon. Now Deadline reports that Ben Affleck is “in talks” to play the role of Tom Buchanan, joining a cast that also includes Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway and Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan. Affleck has been flirting with multiple projects to direct next, following The Town, but it looks like he’ll be acting once again before he directs his next movie. Luhrmann is directing in 3D, adapted from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1923 seminal classic.
Deadline adds that Tom Buchanan is the husband of Daisy (Mulligan), in a role originated by Bruce Dern in the 1974 movie. Luhrmann, who wrote the script with Craig Pearce, is still working on casting roles like Jordan Baker (rumored to be Hayley Atwell), gas station owner George Wilson and his wife Myrtle. Tom is having an affair with Myrtle, and they all play a role in a tragedy. This is definitely an intriguing cast coming together, but that’s totally expected for an adaptation as once-in-a-lifetime as Baz Luhrmann taking on The Great Gatsby. It looks like there’s still news we have yet to hear, not only with casting but confirmation and actually seeing shooting start. We will be sure to keep everyone updated! How’s The Great Gatsby cast?
It was one of the most sensual scenes in Titanic
“You coulda heard a pin drop when Leonardo DiCaprio suddenly got feisty with Oscar-winning director Clint Eastwood on the set of J. Edgar,” begins a piece in the National Enquirer.
According to the tab’s “on-set spy,” DiCaprio supposedly “demanded a retake on a scene” because he felt he hadn’t “shocked enough,” but Eastwood refused.
DiCaprio allegedly wouldn’t take no for an answer, and “got upset and demanded that Clint reshoot the scene.”
Apparently, the director then “turned to the cameraman, and said, in a quiet Dirty Harry rasp: ‘He can shoot it again
