Leonardo DiCaprio Responds After Slammed for Taking Private Jet to Pick Up Environmental Award

A representative for the 'Revenant' actor responds to the criticism, saying he only hitched 'a ride with flights that were already planned.'

AceShowbiz - %cLeonardo DiCaprio% was accused of being a hypocrite after he took a private jet to collect an environmental award in New York. Hours later, the actor who has been an avid advocate of climate change took another private jet to attend the star-studded amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala at Cannes in France.

Leo broke his silence through his representative. He insisted that he didn't charter his own jet but merely hitched "a ride with flights that were already planned." His rep said, "He was asked to speak at both Riverkeeper and amfAR events, but the only way to attend the two fundraisers was to hitch a ride with flights that were already planned. Leo helped both events raise millions, donated his own funds, auctioned off his house and had speaking roles in both programs."

During the amfAR Gala at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on Thursday, May 19 in Cap d'Antibes, Leonardo DiCaprio auctioned off a one-week vacation at his home. The lucky winner would stay in his Palm Springs residence but he wouldn't be there.
