Leonardo DiCaprio Is Honored By Santa Barbara Film Festival, Gets His Crotch Hugged By Stranger

Leo Sun Worships
Leonardo DiCaprio takes in the sunshine.
I mean, wouldn’t you grab Leonardo DiCaprio’s crotch if you had the chance?

The Oscar-nominated star got quite the surprise last night as he hit the red carpet to receive the Vanguard award from the Santa Barbara Film Festival. They have just been all over these special awards. Can I get one, too?

But before he could head inside and take his rightful place next to fellow honoree Martin Scorsese, Leo got sidetracked by an overzealous fan. You’ve seen the photo, now check out the video after the jump. 

I love Leo’s reaction. It goes from “What the fuck?” to “This is hysterical” very quickly. So good. See, that’s what I like about Leo, he actually seems like he would have a good reaction to stuff like this. He’s one of those actors who falls into that weird place of taking himself too seriously, vs. not taking himself seriously enough.

I don’t know if he’s going to win the Oscar this year–it’s looking like Matthew McConaughey’s year–but if he does, I wonder if it would change his attitude. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see. Launch the gallery to check out all the photos from last night’s event, and don’t forget the crotch-grabbing video below!
