Actor and staunch environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio used the Sony private jet like a taxi service last year to transport his friends and family back and forth between Los Angeles and New York, according to new documents published by Wikileaks.
Former Sony executive Amy Pascal reportedly approved hundreds of thousands of dollars to send DiCaprio, his mother, his manager, his brother, and his friends on multiple tours across the country.
As Showbiz411 put it, his group left a carbon footprint the size of Godzilla’s left foot.
DiCaprio, who has yet to make any movies for Sony pictures, was also flying from Los Angeles to Las Vegas for $26,000 per round trip on Sony’s tab.
The leaked emails revealed bill approvals for various trips in dollar amounts including $59,000, $37,206, and $63,600.
Catering and ground transportation we’re also provided for Leo and his crew.
Breitbart News reported in April that DiCaprio boarded a private jet six different times within six weeks last year.
A partnership between DiCaprio and Netflix was announced in March. The team will work together to create a series of environmental and conservation-themed documentaries.
The actor also announced last month his plans to transform his private island off the coast of Belize into an eco-resort and conservation area.
Leo attended the UN Climate Summit last September where he pleaded with world leaders to address climate change.
As an actor I pretend for a living. I play fictitious characters often solving fictitious problems.
I believe humankind has looked at climate change in that same way: as if it were a fiction, happening to someone else’s planet, as if pretending that climate change wasn’t real would somehow make it go away.
None of this is rhetoric, and none of it is hysteria. It is fact. The scientific community knows it, industry and governments know it, even the United States military knows it. The chief of the U.S. Navy’s pacific command, Admiral Samuel Locklear, recently said that climate change is our single greatest security threat.
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon awarded DiCaprio with the honorary Messenger of Peace title because of his “credible voice in the environmental movement.”
