Leonardo DiCaprio has explained his hilarious reaction to Lady Gaga at the Golden Globes

Turns out this GIF may not be as funny as the internet has made it out to be


Leonardo DiCaprio nearly broke the internet during the Golden Globes with a GIF of him awkwardly wincing as Lady GaGa passed by to accept her award.


Fans all over the internet posted the GIF to social media, and it became a trending topic very quickly. Why would Leo make such a face at a fellow actress?

Leo, who didn’t even know that this was trending, gave a very simple answer to Entertainment Tonight.“I just didn’t know what was passing me – that’s all!” he said.


While it may not be as juicy and mean as the internet had hoped, it still makes for a pretty wonderful GIF.
