    Leonardo DiCaprio and Netflix recently collaborated to create the Oscar-nominated documentary feature Virunga, and the streaming service is eager to continue their successful partnership with the philanthropic actor-producer. Appian Way, DiCaprio's production company, has reportedly signed a multiyear deal to create a slate of documentaries and docuseries which will premiere exclusively on Netflix.

    DiCaprio, a longtime environmental philanthropist and activist, acted as executive producer on last year's Virunga. The Netflix documentarychronicled the plight of mountain gorillas in Africa, and the icnoic actor-producer believes it offered "a window into the incredible cultural and natural diversity of our world, the forces that are threatening to destroy it, and the people who are fighting to protect it." Following Virunga's best documentary feature Oscar nomination, Appian Way and Netflix discussed the possibility of further collaborations, and DiCaprio's production company agreed on Wednesday to release several nonfiction projects for the streaming service that will have environmental and conservation themes.

    In a press statement regarding the multiyear deal, DiCaprio stated that "there’s never been a more critical time for our planet or more of a need for gifted storytellers to help us all make sense of the issues we face."

    "Through this partnership with Netflix, I hope to give documentary filmmakers doing urgent and important work the chance to have their films seen immediately by audiences all around the world," said DiCaprio.

    “This partnership is a natural extension of our incredible relationship with Leo on Virunga," said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. "We look forward to building on our shared success with more thought-provoking, high-quality documentaries and docuseries."

    I watched Virunga and thought it was about Robin's latest kooky vacation.

    Beth posed with a balloon on her private beach last year to show that they care about the environment - never mind the mansions, limos and private jets.

    130. BLIND GOSSIP 04/13 **#2**
    COACHELLA: This major actor made an appearance at Coachella this weekend. We’ve seen him there before, so his presence was not a big surprise. He may have finally hit an age, though, where his popularity with the young and beautiful set is taking a bit of a dive. While at a private party, our actor pointed out a pretty young girl (who looked like a model) to one of his friends. The friend then approached the girl on the actor’s behalf. Using only the celebrity’s first name, the friend told the young girl, "My friend X over there would like to meet you." The young girl looked over at the scruffy actor, but didn’t seem to realize that he was a big celebrity. "No thanks," she said. The friend seemed genuinely surprised. "Why not?" The girl replied with a shrug, "Because he looks like my Dad." Ouch. Leonardo Dicaprio

    This is true of most limousine liberals. Drive gas guzzlers, live in deserts and waste water with huge pools and fountains, mansions that use as much electricity as a shopping mall....the list goes on and on. And these people are concerned about the world? If everyone lived like them, there would be nothing left of it.
