Leo Jeered by Spanish Press

1/26/2007 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Leonardo DiCaprio has pissed off the Spanish press.

After arriving an hour late for a photo call in Madrid to promo his film "Blood Diamond," the three-time Oscar nominee met with hooting from the angry press.

Leo could only endure thirty seconds of it and walked out of the room annoyed -- prompting the jeering crowd to break into applause! Adios, Leo! Pobrecito, chapparito!

This is what happens when you get so high above other , simple people's lives , thinking that you can allow yourself everything since you are a "star".
Other people's kids and families are waiting for them, warm food .. the prospect of sexy loving.... So Leo dont f....k with the people.....The same people who put you on the throne are also the ones who drag you down....
Learn from history dude...

The press was mad after waiting 1 hour?

PAH-LEASE.....

Since when do the press have an issue about waiting around to see a star? They stand outside of the Ivy everyday in hopes of catching a glimpse.....

Haven't we all been an hour late at some point or another? Sh*t happens.....

I agree with one of the previous comments: the press shoudn't have waited. It would have been deserving for Leo to show up to an empty room. Next time, he'll be more considerate and show up on time like a true professional. I don't see what all the fuss is about him anyway. I won't go and see his movie. I'm only responding to this article because I can't stand arrogant, egotistical people.

I don't feel sorry for him, or any of these other stars who show up late to these events... I mean how hard is it to show up for a photo call? Im assuming he just had to sit there and smile and pose.

I think it is sad when these stars take their status for granted and show up late to parties, movie premiers or whatever else these spoiled brats have to do to get paid.

When us normal people are late to work we get fired, at least he still has millions.

So he can deal with a couple of disgruntled photogs

Whatever    

It is very rude to show up late to a scheduled press conference. He is a little prick.

Sh*t only happens when you are an arrogant self centered prick..It wasn't like the paps were outside a restaurant waiting for photos..this was an appointment to promote the movie. I agree with Renee. How inconsiderate.

Does anyone know WHY he was late? Why do we automatically jump to the conclusion that it was intentional? I was twenty minutes late for a doctor's appointment today because of traffic. It happens. Considering the press stalk these celebrities, you would think they could at least let him explain himself before "booing" him.

Celebrities should start copyrighting their images, so that paparazzi have to get their permission before selling pictures of them to magazines. I bet these press and paparazzi will start being much nicer then...

Standards are badly needed.    

Leo owed them a simple, heartfelt apology.
They could have then proceeded.
He's young. Needs a do-over.

NOW they can pat themselves in the back and can go to bed feeling proud and powerful because they've hooted an American off the room. Yay! he was American from the U.S. n A! THAT'S what it's is all about. - a superiority complex Spain and the French have.
