Hollywood has always been political.
Celebrities have always used their influence to promote various social issues, from politics to poverty, from animal rights to feeding the hungry.
Often, their enormous talent is a gateway to a world of enormous impact, as we’ve all seen whenever celebrities come together for causes, commercials, concerts, even songs that fundraise and spread awareness. Sometimes, celebrities can hold more sway than experts in a given field.
Leonardo DiCaprio is one especially dedicated and outspoken movie star, and his latest comments were aimed directly at Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.
I wonder if Donald will say anything back!
DiCaprio has long been passionate about the natural environment, dedicating time and resources to activism and preservation.
In 1998, he created the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation that brings attention and funding to “protecting biodiversity, oceans conservation, wildlands conservation, and climate change.”
