Leonardo DiCaprio was greeted by hundreds of fans in Edinburgh on his first trip to Scotland.
The Oscar-winning actor, who is in Scotland to speak at the Scottish Business Awards, stopped by the Edinburgh restaurant Home, which donates its profits to helping the homeless. The restaurant provides training and employment programmes for members of the Social Bite Academy, a four-year training program for people who are homeless, according to the BBC. Diners are encouraged to “pay forward” a meal for the homeless.
With hundreds of fans waiting in the rain for a glimpse of “The Revenant” star, one lucky fan, Elise Lovell, won the chance to have lunch with the actor at Home.
Lovell calls DiCaprio “absolutely charming” and tells the BBC they spoke about his films and his work with Director Martin Scorsese, as well as the actor’s dedication to environmental causes. The subject turned to the recent United States election and Donald Trump, which Lovell claims DiCaprio called “a shock.”
