Amazon founder and one of world’s richest men Jeff Bezos reacted to a viral video that showed his girlfriend swooning over Leonardo di Caprio. Lauren Sanchez, who’s Jeff’s current girlfriend after the latter’s divorce, met the Academy Award winning actor recently. Lauren in the video, couldn’t stop grinning and swooning, an effect that Leo’s looks can conjure even after all these years.
What was expected was that the netizens will share the videos with some hilarious caption on Twitter. What was not expected was that Bezos himself would react to the meme in his own way. Jeff Bezos, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Lauren, all bumped into each other at the LACMA Art+Film event which was hosted by DiCaprio himself.
The Facts of the Matter
Call it charm, call it good looks, call it an otherworldly aura he developed after achieving milestones, but there’s something about Leonardo DiCaprio that can make heads turn. The 46-year-old actor has played some fantastic roles in films such as Shutter Island, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, The Revenant, Revolutionary Road among others.
Not only is DiCaprio one of the most sought-after actors in the history of cinema, but his work for climate change has also made waves. Over the course of years, he has donated millions of dollars in charity, and his own foundation – Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, works for climate change and other environmental concerns.

Lol 😂 this is Jeff doing his best @elonmusk impersonation and I’m here for it. Twitter is just as much a billionaires playground as it is mine and there’s something that sits right with me about that fact.
