When your girlfriend is a 21-year-old model-actress with nearly 2 million Instagram followers, you bet you’re going to have to snap a few pics for the gram.
Even if you’re an Oscar winner. Even if you’re a respected activist and environmentalist. Even if you’re Leonardo DiCaprio.
The star, 44, was in Cannes with his girlfriend Camila Morrone, whose film Mickey and the Bear had its premiere in France, and Leo was captured dutifully snapping pics of the gorgeous gal while she posed bare feet in an Alessandra Rich polka-dot dress, trying to strike the perfect ballerina pose to share with her followers.
Clearly, the internet had thoughts about Leo’s new highly-relatable role.

Camila didn’t post that pic but did share a snap of herself wearing the same dress, which was liked by Paris Hilton among thousands of others.

The Titanic star—incidentally the movie that shot him to superstardom came out the year before his GF was born!—will also have a big movie premiere on La Croisette. Today marks the 25-years-in-the-making return of Quentin Tarantino and his much-anticipated love letter to late-’60s L.A./meditation on the Manson Family Murders, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. He made a splash way back in 1994 with Pulp Fiction and walked away with the coveted Palme d’Or.
The movie also stars Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Dakota Fanning, James Marsden, Timothy Olyphant and a slew of other A-listers so expect a dazzling red carpet.
And if we’re lucky, a few snaps that Leo grabs of Camila that make it to her page.
