Leo, Is That You? The Internet Seems To Think Leonardo DiCaprio Just Won Silver At The Rio Olympics
He didn't, FYI.
Leonardo DiCaprio may have scooped his very first Oscar earlier this year, but now fans reckon the actor has picked up another major accolade: er, a silver medal in archery at the Rio Olympics.
But before you start thinking that Leo’s acting days are over, and he’s swapped movie scripts for a bow and arrow, let us clear up the confusion.
The athlete who scooped a silver medal at Rio over the weekend was in fact US Olympian Brady Ellison, who just so happens to bare an uncanny resemblance to the Wolf On Wall Street actor.
We mean, look! Who could blame us for doing a double take?
Naturally, sports enthusiasts and Leo fans alike took to Twitter to joke about the pair’s similarities…

Brady Ellison needs to look at the camera and say “No more bath, Gilbert.” just so we can determine he’s really not Leonardo DiCaprio

This is Ellison’s third time at the Olympics and his first silver medal.
Scooping silver AND being compared to one of the most handsome men in Hollywood? What a weekend. You go, Brady.
Have your say
