Sorry guys — the rumors keep flying around this morning and they’re too good to sit on. Once more, my source is Bill Zwecker from the Chicago Sun-Time who, for all I know, is simply toying with me and the focus of this site. But if not…
Zwecker is reporting that Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew Modine, and Ed Begley Jr. are all organizing a big Hollywood conference to get celebrities behind a nationwide ”Going Green” environmental campaign. But it’s not just another networking event — the three organizers are anxious to teach celebrities that they can’t just talk about the environment and then ”walk out to the parking lot and jump into their Land Rovers, Hummers and other gas-guzzling cars,” DiCaprio reportedly told an associate.
Hmmm…very interesting. So, in a way, you would have an initiative that would not only promote going green but also “teach” how to go about it properly? Would those participating then also be under the scrutiny of some type of “Green Hollywood” watchdog group?
There’s nothing else out there I could find to back this up — but hey, this is what green gossip is all about. Hopefully, we’ll have more soon!
