It was the eye roll seen ’round the world. As Gaga approached the Golden Globe stage to accept her (surprise) award for American Horror Story (YOU WERE ROBBED, KIRSTEN DUNST!), her hip pad brushed against Leonardo diCaprio, which caused him to make a crazy face that immediately became the most-memed GIF of the night.
He spoke about his “viral catastrophe” to Entertainment Tonight. In the clip below, he is informed “Your reaction to Lady Gaga is trending.” Leo sheepishly smiles and says, “Oh Lord. That’s trending, huh?” – then explains: “I just didn’t know what was passing me, that’s all. I was like, oh!”
So there you have it. He didn’t know “what” was passing him.
