For all of you faithful Leo fans, here’s the latest scoop on his upcoming appearance on "Oprah."
According to Warner Bros, the episode – which was taped last week – will now air on Dec 6, not coincidentally, the day of the Los Angeles premiere of his new film "Blood Diamond."
And here’s a fashion scoop: DiCaprio and his "Diamond" co-star Djimon Hounsou both wore red rubber Blood Diamond bracelets and spoke about the issue of conflict stones on the show.
These new bracelets — designed to help support Global Witness and Amnesty International’s ongoing work on this important issue — will be handed out to guests at the premiere.
Not invited? No sweat.
You can get a red rubber bracelet (just $2) just like Leo’s by clicking here.
You’ll also get a real education about the conflict diamond issue that is so important to the social and environmental activist/actor.
It’s worth mentioning that there are literally thousands of innocent men, women and children in South Africa who can’t wear these bracelets.
Why? Their hands and arms were hacked off by rebels during the ’90s decade-long civil war in Sierra Leone, a war financed and fueled in large part by the illicit sale of rough "conflict" or "blood" diamonds.
That’s why Leo told Time magazine last week that he would never let one of his girlfriends wear diamonds. So if you’re planning to be in the crowd at the Westwood premiere and hope to catch his eye, I’d advise skipping the bling and slipping on a red rubber Blood Diamond bracelet. Then just scream "Leeeeeoooo!"
You might also try, "I’ll show you mine if you’ll show me yours" and hold up your Blood bracelet hand.
