We mostly know Leonardo DiCaprio as the super serious actor and environmental activist who forces himself to eat raw bison liver, get hypothermia and be fully eaten by a bear and regurgitated directly into his press junket chair, simply for the ART.
But we also know he’s kind of a bro. Totes a bro. And that’s why this photo, posted as a throwback Thursday by my eternal queen, Britney Spears, is such a wonder to behold.
Look at this picture. Gaze upon it. Tattoo it inside your eyelids so you never again see anything else when you close your eyes at night, ensuring your dreams are filled with this glory.
Like, what did they talk about? Did they discuss the whales? The poverty? THE CHILDREN? Did she reject him, forcing him to pick up his broken ego and insert it into the nearest supermodel? Did they talk about how they hope it’s always the early 2000s and never anything else? Did he compliment her on her festive, flare-filled denim vest? DID THEY COMPARE JAUNTILY SKEWED HATS? God, I wish I’d been there. I wish we’d all been there.
Instead, we only have this picture. And the glory of what could have been.
