Leo Proves That The Rich Get Richer

8/14/2006 9:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Leo DiCaprio makes tens of millions of dollars for each movie he shoots. So what do you get the man who has everything when you have to buy him a present? You get him even richer.

We've learned that Leo went to the verrrry pricey Williams-Sonoma store in Beverly Hills the other day to buy a few kitchen items. The store is famous for cooking gadgets, plates, knives -- all things kitchen.

When it came time to checkout, Leo handed the guy at the register a gift certificate for more than $5,700. And get this -- that was the BALANCE on the certificate. It was probably originally for either $7,500 or $10,000. Someone at the store tells TMZ that when the certificates get into the stratosphere like that, they typically go up in $2,500 increments.

Leo didn't buy that much that day, so he still had plenty left on the certificate. Oh well -- we just live in his world.

It is nice to hear that he cooks like us regular people, instead of having a maid to do all the work. Then again, he might be buying it for the maid to use.

When the heck is "Leo buys a can opener" a news worthy story? I guess Barbie Cavallari hasn't found a new c-lister to sleep her way into the ragazines with yet or Gary Coleman isn't returning your calls. YES, his gift certifs. are at a higher level than us common folks, but the dude rakes in 20 million a picture. He has rich friends. Can you really see them trading socks or $10 McDonald's gift certifs? Heck , maybe is was a house warming gift from years ago. I'm sure he bought a new house in the last 10 years. I don't know for sure, I'll leave the celeb stalking to you guys.

Leo is the most amazing actor out there today, he has more talent in his little pinky than most people do in their whole body. Although this story sucks and Leo deserves better than this b**l**it , I'd much rather read about him going grocerie shopping than the endless promtion by TMZ for Paris Hilton!!!

Another celebrity gets a flippin' gift certificate when they can afford it... and the rest of us get nothing.
