It's a tale as old as time, when Leonardo DiCaprio met Lady Gaga. It was a star-studded affair. Gaga (née Stefani Germanotta) had just won her first Golden Globe for Best Performance By an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture for her work in "American Horror Story: Hotel." Meanwhile, Leo was seated at Table 10, having a laugh with some good friends. She brushed past him on her way to the stage, and well, the rest was history.
In all seriousness, Leo looked legitimately freaked out by Gaga. We're not entirely sure how to process this. On one hand, we'd probably be startled too. It did look like Gaga came out of nowhere. But on the other, we're not down with belittling Gaga after winning her first big Hollywood award. Whether Leo intended to or not, that's how Little Monsters are taking it.
Maybe Leo didn't mean to make such a pompous face. Maybe he really was taken off guard by Gaga's abrupt nudge. After all, that incredibly sculpted hip of her Versace gown looks pretty sharp to the touch. Either way, we're thankful this meme now exists because at the end of the day, Gaga has her Golden Globe -- and Leo still doesn't have his Oscar. Sorry, man. Those are the facts.
Here's how the Internet reacted when Leo met Gaga:
For what it's worth, Leo later clarified what really happened when Gaga brushed up against him. As it turned out, he just straight-up didn’t understand what was happening to him.
The actor told reporters backstage after his big Golden Globes win for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama, "I just didn’t know what was passing me -- that's all!"
Alright, Leo. This time you get a pass, but remember, we're watching you.
