Leo’s Attacker On Trial

Posted on November 15, 2010


leoIn 2005, at a stage in Leonardo DiCaprio‘s career where he was really beginning to be taken seriously as a male lead actor, media attention towards the him was more than ever and a couple of fans unfortunately went a little too far. One wrote letters to the Inception star claiming she was pregnant with his child and that God had told her they must marry, (she is now under a restraining order), and another resorted to violence. At a Hollywood Hills party the woman smashed a wine glass and cut DiCaprio on the side of his head, resulting in him needing 18 stitches on his ear and neck. The woman claims she was defending herself as DiCaprio became hostile when she joked that he was gay, but that story hasn’t washed well with the law. Aretha Wilson is on trial this week and will face no less than two years in jail for the attack. DiCaprio is not the only one to have to deal with crazed fans in recent years, Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Mariah Carey and many more have had restraining orders issued against people who make them feel unsafe. Shame, really, that people become so obsessed that they go that bit too far…not the way to impress! I don’t know or claim to know the ins and outs of this case, other than that published by DiCaprio‘s spokesperson, but all I can say is this…Who would want to harm that pretty face?
