Leo flew eyebrow artist 7,500 miles to do his brows for the Oscars

Even the failed Independent sees the hypocrisy!


How much effort do you put into the appearance of your eyebrows? Tinting? Threading? Pencilling in? Plucking the strays? Or perhaps nothing at all?

Well if you’re an A-lister with the eyes of the world watching, it seems no length is too extreme to ensure your brows are perfect.

Australian eyebrow-artist to the stars Sharon-Lee Hamilton was flown from Sydney to Los Angeles to tend to a select few celebrities’ brows before the 2017 Oscars.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire are reportedly two members of the Hollywood elite who insisted on Hamilton flying the 7,500 across the Pacific Ocean, despite DiCaprio’s environmental stance.

Hamilton has previously revealed that when travelling on request, her costs are covered.


Words fail me!

    You couldn’t make it up – oops, obviously you can!

    Their ridiculous vanity knows no bounds.

    If that picture is any indication, it was not money well spent.

    Oh well, at least there are some plants somewhere grateful for the extra shot of CO2.

      Jeeves declined the invitation to help, he would not have approved of the clip on of course!

    Words have failed most of us where de Caprio is concerned!

    The amazing thing about this is that the Indy is still surprised at this poseur’s hypocrisy when every self-respecting sceptical blog has been reporting this for the last few years (along with the behaviour of all the other we-must-save-the-planet long-haul jaunters).

    What is alarming is that the 21st century journalist (or what passes for a journalist) seems incapable of recognising the hypocrisy. They can’t all be that dense or unobservant, can they?

    Nevertheless this small breach in the dyke is welcome. Perhaps the message that the econuts don’t actually believe any of the crap the spout will start to penetrate the skulls of even the dimmest journos. I’d recommend standing well back because when this dam breaks the flood will be awesome!

      It is more than just the execrable state of modern ‘journalism’ I think. I have come to the conclusion after viewing the Trump celebrity hate-fest, that it is a simple case of instinctive symbiosis. ‘Celebrities’ cannot survive without the ego-stroking and fawning of the MSM, while the MSM cannot survive without the fuel of celebrity posturing and playing to the gallery.

    I have no doubt that when gets the image right, Climate Alchemy will have vanished and he’ll be viewed as a somewhat dim heretic.

    Why are we really surprised? He is a dumb leftie and hypocrisy is an important part of being a leftie, along with do as I say not do as I do.

    Have heart. He could not use a sailboat or a solar-powered plane because there was not enough time. Swimming was out – too many sharks.

      Question, George. Why can’t he pluck his own effin’ eyebrows like wot the rest of us have to do? I mean, talk about “first world problems”!

      I did enjoy this year’s Grade A cock-up though. Couldn’t have happened to a better bunch of [insert description of choice here]. Larf? The tears were streamin’ down me face!

        and Meryl [Streep]…………… tripped up, though not over her own gob.

    The only thing on the planet that will give Leo the rise, is looking at his reflected image in the mirror.

    Nothing else matters, money no object.

    His ceaselessly gullible and adoring fans – astound…………………….I can never fathom mankind’s ability, his propensity to prove it and there’s more than one born every minute.

    Being green, saving mamma Gaia is so vacant, so cruel to be cool, but Leo never in his wildest dreams would drink the Kool aid with his followers, no, OH NO! ……… he’d be ladelling it out and as he does.

    People like DiCaprio degrade all of humanity, not quite as much as did Obarmy but in the same category – just a lower order, ie from scuttling sand crab down along, to amoeba.

    On the other hand, it would be a plucky move.

    I’ll get me coat!

    In La Paz,BCS,Mexico for the winter and got a haircut in February. Olga did a magnificent job and threw in the eyebrow trim for free. All for 50 pesos and mine look good enough for the Oscars.
