DiCaprio-Gaga moment storms the internet!
Leonardo DiCaprio became a trending topic during Sunday night’s Golden Globes for all the wrong reasons. Despite getting a standing ovation from his fellow Hollywood star for winning the Best Actor in a Drama Motion Picture he has become famous for one particular moment.
The 41-year-old actor made quite a face when Lady Gaga, who was walking toward the stage to accept her award for Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie, touched his back as she walked by. Caught off guard, DiCaprio noticeably jumped in his seat and winced. The moment exploded on social media with numerous GIFs, Vines and screenshots, reports Entertainment Tonight.
“Oh lord -- that’s trending, huh?” DiCaprio said he heard of the incident.
DiCaprio had a completely logical explanation for why he made the face he did when Lady Gaga brushed by him.
“I just didn’t know what was passing me -- that’s all!” the Revenant star admitted.
DiCaprio won a Globe himself for his harrowing performance in the gritty film Revenant.
“This is a type of film that you won’t see coming out of the Hollywood studio system very often,” he said. “It’s an epic art film and I’m just so happy it got recognized tonight,” he tells ET.
I love the way Leo flinched when Gaga walked by like he didn't want any TV to get on his tux.

The Revenant, which co-stars Tom Hardy, took home three awards, including Best Director for Alejandro G. Inarritu and Best Motion Picture, Drama.
“I want to make more movies like this, and I want the studios to take more chances on movies like this,” DiCaprio added.
Lady Gaga just won a Golden Globe. Madonna is gonna be soooooo pissed. (But Leo's reaction takes the bait!) #GoldenGlobes
