InTallaght have just received the exclusive news that Hollywood’s Golden boy and winner of Best Actor at the Oscars this year, none other than Leonardo Di Caprio is due to make a visit to Tallaght later this year. As we all know, The Revenant star is highly involved in raising awareness of climate change and used his Oscar speech to highlight the cause:
“Climate change is real. It is happening right now, it is the most urgent threat facing our entire species and we need to work collectively and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world… who speak for all of humanity.”
The actor’s foundation, The Leonardo Di Caprio Foundation announced this morning that they are starting a world tour to raise the issue with individual governments and will come to Ireland in October, and have listed Tallaght as a location. While the foundation will not disclose the exact location they did say:
“The time has come for us to meet face to face with the leaders of each and every Government to help them realise just how important a need for change is. Mr Di Caprio is tired of waiting for them to make changes and so is personally calling on each and every leader to plead with them for the futures of the human race, and indeed the world.”
A source close to the actor said that Leo might make a longer stop in Tallaght as he is fond of hillwalking and heard that The Hellfire Club is one of the best views of the city. We are definitely excited about the possibility of seeing the star in the flesh and will be looking for a tent to camp out on the hill to see him!
