Whether it’s his smile, the brooding gaze or the phenomenal on-screen presence, Leo is one of the finest performers global cinema has ever seen. The actor rang in his44th birthday with the creme de la creme of the industry.
The Academy Award-winning actor – who officially turned 44 on Sunday, was the focus of attention at the Spring Place members-only club in Beverly Hills, in L.A. founded by Francesco Costa. The party was lit by the presence graced by the A-listers from Hollywood, the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, Kate Beckinsale, Rita Ora, FKA twigs, G-Eazy and Naomi Campbell all turned out to support the Hollywood icon.
Leo’s birthday bash was nothing short of the bash that he hosts in his 2013 hit release, The Great Gatsby in its intro scene. Apart from hosting the biggest bash of the year, the actor walks in with a glass of fine wine and a look to die for. The party guests were served a massive blue sheet cake with the words “L 44th” written across it in blue frosting.
According to the sources, the guest list included Jay-Z and Beyoncé, who also happened to be the first ones to arrive at the party, sat by the dance floor while their greatest hits played in the party. The same source revealed that Larry David held court with Sacha Baron Cohen on the outside patio, while Tony Romo was seen joking and dancing with Chace Crawford and Jennifer Aniston arrived with two gal pals and later linked up with Gwyneth Paltrow, who attended the glamorous bash with her new husband, Brad Falchuk. In total, around 500 people were invited to the birthday party; DiCaprio also threw a smaller yet intimate birthday dinner for 50 guests followed by the birthday celebration, one of whom included TV star, Oprah Winfrey.
With a career spanning more than three decades, Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the biggest stars in Hollywood as his fame and popularity exploded following the release of ‘Titanic’ in 1997, and he’s admitted to finding the intense scrutiny to be ‘surreal’. He had shared, ‘It was a very surreal period. It was bizarre. I took a break for a couple of years because it was so intense. I needed to recharge and refocus.’
DiCaprio also spent his birthday weekend thanking first responders to the raging California wildfires, while advocating for change as the out of control blazes continued throughout the state. He tweeted saying, ‘The reason these wildfires have worsened is due to climate change and a historic drought. Helping victims and fire relief efforts in our state should not be a partisan issue.’
