Leonardo DiCaprio Date of Philippine Visit -- a Secret?
Henceforth, there’ll be a news blackout on the forthcoming visit of Leonardo DiCaprio not to promote his movie Inception (currently showing nationwide) but for his pro-environment advocacy.
DiCaprio’s US reps have instructed the publicist and project director of the project to keep all things under wraps and keep details of his visit confidential. This is “so the actor will not be disturbed during his holiday at an ultra-luxurious island resort” (in Albay) by a possible media circus.
According to the publicist, DiCaprio’s trip, originally set for next month, has been moved by a few months because his reps were alarmed by the recent typhoon (Basyang) that hit Luzon.
More tidbits courtesy of the publicist:
• The actor is interested to purchase his own personal estate at the island (complete with his own beach and villa) so he can do a private visit often away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi that hounds him in other commercial vacation spots.
• The project director is now working with the tycoon-owner of the island in developing a cluster of villas that will be owned exclusively by Hollywood celebrities as well as launching the actor’s environmental foundation when he arrives.
