Once upon a time, there was a little boy named Leonardo DiCaprio who forgot that cameras followed his every move until Lady Gaga scared the living hell out of him.
At the 73rd Golden Globes, DiCaprio was not only recognized for his outstanding performance as an avenging frontiersman in "The Revenant," but also for his hilariously candid reaction to fellow Globes winner Lady Gaga, as she brushed against the actor on her way up to the stage.
Actors, they're just like us. They get scared too.
"Oh, lord -- that’s trending, huh?” DiCaprio said to Entertainment Tonight in a post-Globes interview. “I just didn’t know what was passing me -- that’s all!” he added, making sure no one thought he was scoffing at Gaga's win.
Leo's refreshingly honest reaction pretty much stole the show during an otherwise dull Golden Globes, where most celebrities tried waaaay too hard to make us laugh. Seriously, everybody needs to turn down with the planned gags and forced humor. It's the Golden Globes, not an amateur stand-up set at the Chuckle Bucket.
No word on how Camp Gaga feels about the incident, or whether she even cares, considering she has a shiny new trophy to add to her six -- count 'em, six -- Grammys.
And they all lived happily ever after because everyone involved is a huge celebrity with tons of money.
