Leo's Bipolar Camera Hatred

1/17/2007 2:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

After last week's anti-camera shopping spree at a Golden Globe swag event, Leonardo DiCaprio continued to prove his distaste for American cameras as he buried himself in a coat while making his way through LAX.

However, his hatred seemed to magically transform over a long international flight; when the superstar landed in Japan, he was suddenly photog-friendly, waving and smiling for waiting paparazzi at Tokyo's International Airport.

Why the big change, Leo-San?

Movie folk know that the money is made internationally. And frankly we have enough pics of Leo, so for a few weeks he is anti camera here. TMZ you are trying to make him look bad on this. There are soooo many other things you can point out if you really look, this is a non story.

Pretty sure that Leo San has some lucrative commercial deals over there. He is too cool for us and the photogs here, but over there he hawks beer and foot powder and clothes... so they want him smiling and not cringing and ducking into some stinky sweater.
He is a two faced fool and we all know it.
He thinks he is being so crafty and sneaky.
I can't stand the guy.

TomKat did the same thing with baby Suri - a no-show over here, then as soon as they touch down in Rome, she's splashed all over (no hiding!) !!!

Seems a bit hypocritical to me.
