Did ya hear? Shutter Island – the Scorcese-directed thrilled starring Leonardo DiCaprio – scored big at the box office this weekend, raking in $40.2 million in ticket sales. According to Business Week, “It had a stronger opening weekend than any previous film directed by Scorsese or starred in by DiCaprio, including their three previous collaborations.” In short, Leo is hot sh*t right now. Add to that the news that he has rekindled things with longtime on-and-off gal pal Bar Refaeli, and it’s obvious what’s going on: the guy’s the king of the world. A shlubby, aging, dumpy king.
Bar is off in Mexico this weekend, lounging around with girlfriends while her boyfriend is off pocketing millions just because he’s learned to do a poor man’s Boston accent. Life isn’t fair for most of us, but at least we get to watch how the lucky ones live, right? As if that’s some sort of consolation. [Photo: Splash News Online]
