Did Leonardo DiCaprio just win a medal at the Olympics??
Leonardo DiCaprio Brady Ellison won a silver medal for Team USA in archery on August 6. Yep, at first glance, Ellison could be mistaken for none other than Leonardo DiCaprio, and Twitter definitely noticed:
The two men do have a few things in common.
Ellison has spent time near L.A., when he lived in Chula Vista, CA, near San Diego. Of course, DiCaprio probably spends a lot of time in L.A.
Ellison and DiCaprio are both 6’0” tall.
They both appear to have facial hair lately.
They’ve both won “medals”—DiCaprio took home the gold (in Oscar form) and Ellison took home the silver.
“I’m excited, I’m happy,” Ellison said. “After London, I was pissed off. We didn’t shoot the best we could and we lost the gold medal there. We got out there and did our job and won the silver tonight.”
And if you didn’t know better, you’d think this were DiCaprio.
I know, riiiight?
The Internet and Twitterverse are noticing the similarities, too.
There was this Swedish model:
And then there was this Russian man:
We wonder who’ll be next.
Until then, we’re happy for Ellison’s DiCaprio resemblance archery win.
