Leonardo DiCaprio's Love of Giving Has Inspired Models to Give As Much As He Does

It feels a little silly to lead today’s AM Dirt Bag with such a non-story, but this is my domain on weekday mornings and none of you can stop me, so I’m going to share a Page Six report about Leonardo DiCaprio’s seemingly contagious obsession with philanthropy.

As those of us who just went to its website for the first time this morning know, Leonardo DiCaprio’s Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation “implements solutions that help restore balance to threatened ecosystems, ensuring the long-term health and well-being of all Earth’s inhabitants.” This is a long-winded way of saying Leo spends a lot of time and money doing charitable work that helps the environment—and it’s starting to look like his love of giving (the man truly gives so much) is wearing off on the women he loves giving it to.

Writes Page Six:

While his current Danish model, Nina Agdal, was lighting up the Empire State Building in yellow to bring awareness to Literacy Day on Thursday, his former flame, German model Toni Garrn, fronted a flea market of high-end designer fashion with all proceeds going to charity.


No form of protection can prevent a passion for charity work from spreading between sexual partners, and that’s something to celebrate.

Alonzo Knowles, a hacker who “who stole and sold unfilmed movie and TV scripts, and even sex tapes, from the email addresses of celebrities” last year, will soon be sentenced for his crimes, but TMZ is reporting the threat of prison isn’t going to stop him from releasing everything he found.

They write:

The U.S. Attorney claims Knowles has told his brother, and other prisoners, the computer has great value and it’s worth spending an extra year in jail in return for getting rich off a book chronicling celebrity secrets.

The legal docs say Knowles told his brother, “Yo, when I get out dog, I’m going to be a millionaire dog, trust me when I say that ... I’m gonna be rich as hell.”


Even if he gets “rich as hell,” Knowles will probably have to spend it all in the commissary.


Hilaria and Alec Baldwin had another kid. His name is Leonardo. Interesting.
