Yep, there are two Leonardo DiCaprios, and the second one looks like he just stepped off the Titanic—very much alive. Is this real or have we manifested a double due to our combined psychic longing for more Leo?
Nope, it’s really just some guy who’s been blessed with spectacular genes and a built-in ticket to fame (at least 15 minutes of it). His name is Konrad Annerud, and he’s a 21-year-old bartender whose resemblance to Leo has made him a local attraction, and has allowed him to amass about 59,000 Instagram followers (the true measure of fame).
A single glance at any one of his many Instagram photos makes clear just how close the resemblance is: it’s almost eerie.
Take a look:
So how does Little Leo feel about looking like one of the world’s most famous and well-loved actors? Well, for starters, don’t call him Little Leo.
He said it’s usually gratifying to look like the star, but that it can get annoying at times.
“It can be quite annoying sometimes when people call me ‘Leo’ instead of my real name. But it’s fun to look like him, I mean, he’s handsome.”
Love that subtle compliment to himself there. Well done, Konrad. Well done.
Konrad admits that traveling is probably the worst part of sharing a face with 90s-era Leo:
“When I was in Italy this summer, I almost felt like shaving my hair off. It was very chaotic; people were yelling ‘Leo’ and wanted to take photos with me all the time. It was one of the craziest things I’ve ever experienced.”
I gurss it could be worse, Konrad.
As for us, we have so many questions. For one, is he planning to be a model/actor/work in entertainment at all? Is the world big enough for two Leos?! Does he also wear a man bun and have a horde of model ex-girlfriends? Would HE have survived the sinking of the Titanic?
But most important, he should find himself a Kate Winslet look-alike and reenact that terrible death scene (the wooden door could TOTALLY have fit both of them, guys). I smell an alternate ending.
