Nobody is immune to the magnetism of Leonardo DiCaprio—not even the girlfriend of the second richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos.
At least that's how it seemed judging from viral clips from the recent LACMA Art+Film Gala in Los Angeles, where a clip of Bezos's girlfriend, television personality Lauren Sanchez, all but fainting in the presence of the dreamy movie star nearly broke the internet this week.
Well, Bezos has finally responded to the moment on Twitter, seen below. And well... DiCaprio better watch his back!
Along with a photo of himself behind a sign on a hiking trail that read "Danger! Steep cliff, fatal drop," Bezos tweeted:
"Leo, come over here, I want to show you something… @LeoDiCaprio"
Bezos tweet is all in good fun, of course... or at least, we assume so. When you have Bezos' kind of money you could probably very easily get the biggest movie star in the world out of your way with very little fanfare, so only time will tell!
The encounter between DiCaprio and Sanchez, former co-host of Extra and a frequent guest host on The View, immediately went viral after Variety tweeted the clip of the two interacting.
Bezos and Sanchez linked up in 2019 shortly after Bezos' divorce from his wife of 25 years was announced, and have been dating for about two years. Nevertheless, Sanchez seemed to momentarily forget Bezos exists in the video clip as she gazed dreamily at DiCaprio. And who can blame her? Who among us?!
The viral moment prompted a wave of tweets, like one from Barstool Sports that gave DiCaprio the apt new nickname of "Mr. Steal Yo Girl."
Of course, given Sanchez's career in entertainment it's likely she and DiCaprio have met before and this was just friendly banter.
But even Bezos himself obviously couldn't avoid the virality of the moment, and people on Twitter loved his humorous response.
Leo, if you're reading this... just in case: RUN.
