- Leonardo DiCaprio, talented actor and eternal heartthrob, actually has something he isn’t good at—volleyball.
- For the second time this summer (and there’s so much summer left!), our lovely Leo took a professional-grade volleyball straight to the face.
As a 23-year-old woman of color who writes for a living, I never thought I would have anything in common with Leonardo DiCaprio. He is an ultra-famous, internationally known heartthrob and makes more money than I’ll likely ever see in my lifetime. Obviously, I can’t relate! But what I can relate to about Leo is that his hand-eye coordination apparently sucks, especially when it comes to a particularly popular summer sport—beach volleyball.
While out in Malibu yesterday, Leonardo engaged in a game with his model girlfriend, Camila Morrone, and was joined by Robin Thicke (remember him?). While Leo was preparing for what he thought was going to be the serve of his LIFE, the volleyball instead hit him right in the goddamn face, completely throwing off his mojo.
Sports have never been my forte, which is why I’m now crowning Leonardo DiCaprio my new spirit animal. See the pics here and try to tell me it’s not the most relatable sh*t you have ever seen:
There’s no way that taking a volleyball to the face didn’t hurt Leo (those things are hard, okay?), and I know this because I, too, have been hit with sports balls in the face. Volleyballs, footballs, tennis balls—you name it! Here is some exclusive footage of me getting beat up by the sport of volleyball:
The funniest thing about this is that it’s not the first time Leonardo has taken a volleyball to the face. It’s the second time. Last month, during a completely different game of beach volleyball, Leo had the hard leather flesh of a volleyball come into contact with his money-making face. He played it off pretty well, but you know, still. I’m surprised he isn’t feuding with volleyball at this point.
Leo, if you’re reading this, maybe try protecting your face next time you decide to engage in a game of beach volleyball, mmmkay? The world needs you.
