WATCH: Leonardo DiCaprio Explains His Brush With Greatness (Lady Gaga)
And the Golden Globe for Best Reaction by an Actor to the Passing By of the Queen of Pop and TV goes to…
Leonardo DiCaprio and Lady Gaga, of course! By now, you will have seen the incident (GIFed for your convenience, above), which occurred last night (Jan. 10, 2016) at the Golden Globes, in which, on her way to the stage to accept her award for Best Actress in a Limited Series, Gaga accidentally bumped into DiCaprio and caused him to make… well, a “face.”
The easily-GIFable moment became, perhaps, the most talked-about event of the night, spawning more memes and commentary than seems worthy of its blink-and-you’ll-miss-it existence. Still, the people want to know: Leo, what was going through your head? Thank goodness for small mercies, because the Globe-winning actor was asked about the viral hoopla by Entertainment Tonight. Watch his response below.
So there you have it: “I just didn’t know what was passing, that’s all.” Riveting stuff.
Furthermore, DiCaprio agrees that we all appear to have lost our minds by uttering the following, incredulous question: “That’s trending, huh?” We have no answer for you at this time, sir.
