flowerSeems like Hollywood has taken to shooting videos on DiCaprio property. Last year, the actor admitted that all of the interviews in his environmental doc, The 11th Hour, were shot in his mother’s garage. Last week on Ellen, he said that the new “Go Vote” PSA for Declare Yourself was filmed entirely at his home in LA. These days, who really needs a professional studio to churn these clips out?

The price is incredible — but even more amazing may be the fact that only a handful of these vehicles still exist after GM went about rounding them up and sending them to the landfill; a fact not lost on the seller who claims that GM is still after him for the car. Perhaps his only saving grace is that he currently lives in Canada. [Read more...]

    I think being eco-friendly is fantastic. I just wonder how anyone who is so fanatic about the earth can pollute their lungs with nicotine and other death-dealing ingredients in tobacco? It is as addictive as HAROIN! I know, my cousin kicked that but can’t quit smoking. I quit smoking 27 years ago. I made a choice between that and my then 2 year old son. He was much more important.
    So, Leonardo (for example) When I see you smoking it up in your films, I think, “he’s about the same age as my son” I think you’re life is more important too.
    Please quit.
