Leonardo DiCaprio may not have an Oscar under his belt just yet, but he has accomplished many things in his career — like winning two awards at the 2016 Golden Globes and starring in a viral video. "The Revenant" star began making his rounds on social media Sunday after an awkward run in with Lady Gaga at the award show. DiCaprio, 41, assures fans, however, that their encounter was not nearly as bad as it seemed.
The moment occurred when it was announced that Lady Gaga, 29, had won Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. The award was for her role as the Countess on "AHS: Hotel." As was previously reported, she appeared stunned by the announcement that she had won. During her long walk to the stage she had to pass by DiCaprio, surprising him in the process by bumping into his arm.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actor was shocked to learn the moment was "trending." He then explained what happened, revealing that there is no bad blood between he and the "American Horror Story: Hotel" star. DiCaprio told ET he simply wasn't aware she was passing by at the moment, hence his now-infamous face.
"That's trending, huh?" He said. " I just didn't know what was passing me. I was like, 'Oh!'"
