Meme icons: Leonardo DiCaprio
Why do we love Leonardo DiCaprio memes so much? What is the most funny Leonardo DiCaprio meme? Is that iconic Leo pointing meme the ultimate relatable expression of self-recognition, and should all lesser meme gods basically pack up and go home at this point?
Leonardo DiCaprio sure has lots to be happy about. He’s been on our screens more or less constantly since the early nineties, racking up iconic role after iconic role.
Did the dawning of the meme era in any way dim the glorious light of this absolute megastar? No, it did not. He’s more famous than ever, the star of some of the most popular memes in daily circulation today.
Let’s enjoy some dank Leonardo DiCaprio memes, and talk about why he’s still such a peerless legend of the game.
DICAPRIO HEARTTHROB MEMES
He’s gorgeous, or at least he used to be. Those pale blue eyes, that cascade of dirty blonde hair. A face at once powerfully masculine, yet at the same time delicately effeminate.
Millennials and even older folks remember well how his sainted chops would stare down off every girl’s bedroom wall, from his Romeo + Juliet era onwards. He was the hunk’s hunk, the definitive expression of nineties hotness.
Now he’s rich, more famous than ever, and an environmentalist. Basically, he’s never much had to struggle when it comes to the ladies, is what we’re saying.
DICAPRIO ENVIRONMENTALIST MEMES
Leonardo DiCaprio is a staunch advocate for environmental causes. His Instagram feed is pretty much 100% planet-conscious content at this point, pumped out to his 60m followers.
As far back as 1998, he created the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation to support organizations and initiatives dedicated to securing a sustainable future for our planet. And DiCaprio was designated as the United Nations Messenger of Peace for Climate Change in 2014.
He’s looking after future generations. Possibly so he can date them.
DICAPRIO ACTOR MEMES
You have to hand it to him, Leonardo DiCaprio is a crazy gifted actor. Just look at his extraordinary range! From Jack Dawson, the lucky lad who won a third-class ticket on the Titanic and doinked young Kate Winslet in an old-timey automobile.
To Jay Gatsby, mysterious east coast plutocrat and iconic lifter of Martinis.
To dapper racist Calvin J. Candie from Django Unchained.
To Jordan Belfort, patron saint of cold-blooded sales department assholes everywhere.
DICAPRIO YOUNG GIRLFRIENDS MEME
Of course, no flimsy article about this intelligent, articulate, movie star, activist and demigod would be complete without some kind of shallow, meaningless dig at his preference for younger women.
Women of about 25 or so, so totally legal and fine, just a bit… ick, we suppose. What’s wrong with the older ladies, huh Leo? Are you ageist, or do you just, like, have a type?
While we’re here, does anybody know IS IT PRONOUNCED GIF OR JIF?
