Listen up, Leo.
So you didn’t win an Oscar for “Wolf of Wall Street” this year, but you can stop throwing yourself a pity party that consists of having sex with an endless string of supermodels on a yacht somewhere in the South of France and drinking nothing but the finest Champagne and having someone there for you to specifically refill your e-cigs. Wait. This actually sounds awesome.
Nevertheless, you can stop doing whatever it is you are doing to numb the pain of losing the Academy Award to Matthew “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” McConaughey, because Russia is going to give you an Oscar!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, players at The Chamber Theater in Chelyabinsk said that Leo can attend all of their plays for free, use the company’s name for publicity reasons AND he can even act in their plays, all as a consolation for losing (again) this year. It sounds like a deal no respected, multimillionaire actor can refuse.
“As Leonardo does not speak Russian, we can start with offering him a wordless part of a servant in the play ‘Plennye Dukh’ (‘Captive Spirits’),” the theater’s spokesman Yury Sychev said.
The Chamber Theater also had a replica of an Oscar statuette made and plans to send it to DiCaprio.
“This strong-willed ‘Russian Oscar’ is to remind DiCaprio that he has to move on in spite of all hardships,” Sychev said.
If all of the millions and 20-year-old supermodels don’t cut it, just remember that there is a little theater company in Chelyabinsk, Russia that loves you.
