The Best Leonardo DiCaprio Memes

The best Leonardo DiCaprio memes come from his best movies including Django Unchained and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

By Rick Gonzales | Updated

Leonardo DiCaprio has been fodder for the press pretty much throughout his entire career, much of it concerning the age of the women in his life. His professional life has, from time to time, taken its fair share of fun poking as well. In fact, it is his professional life that has seen the meme-makers take their liberties (as they often do) and create some wonderfully funny Leonardo DiCaprio memes.

As you will see, many of the Leonardo DiCaprio memes stem from one single picture. It is from the Quentin Tarantino film, Django Unchained, where Leo was playing bad guy Calvin Candie.

The film is a classic for a number of reasons, including the fact that it was DiCaprio’s first turn as the villain. Of course, it also produced a number of great memes, which you will see.

So, here are some of the best Leonardo DiCaprio memes out there.

Best Leonardo DiCaprio Memes

Leonardo DiCaprio Meme – Girls vs Boys Matching Outfits

This first Leonardo DiCaprio meme is a combo of two well-known pictures. The first is the famous “woman yelling at her cat” meme, Taylor Armstrong, from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and of course, the second is Leonardo DiCaprio in Django Unchained.

This meme is fun as it shows just how concerned women are with how they present themselves, while guys, they simply could care less.

Leonardo DiCaprio Meme – No More Jokes Oscar

In 2015, Leo finally got the monkey off his back (for dragging a huge grizzly on his back) when he won the Best Actor Academy Award for his role as Hugh Glass in Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s The Revenant.

Prior to that win, DiCaprio had been nominated for Best Supporting Actor for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, and Best Actor for The Aviator, Blood Diamond, and The Wolf of Wall Street, which also got him a Best Picture Nomination. He was also nominated for Best Actor for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, but this came after his win for The Revenant.

Meme’ers were quick to break out the good stuff after his win; in this one, it is another iconic shot of Leo. Here, you see him again on the Titanic, but instead of holding onto Kate Winslet’s Rose, he is in full embrace of the Oscar statue.

Leonardo DiCaprio Meme – Bathroom Gagging

You have to hand it to the creativity of some meme’ers. Sometimes, they really know their shhhi…stuff. In this hilarious Leonardo DiCaprio meme, we get him in a public bathroom on the toilet with Calvin Candie’s laughing face. The rest of the meme speaks for itself.

It’s gross, but oh so funny.

Leonardo DiCaprio Meme – Wheels on a Shopping Cart

For any of us who’ve gone grocery shopping, we know exactly the annoyance of this meme. You may not realize it when you first grab that defective shopping cart, and when you finally do realize it, you think you can push your way through it. Alas, that does not happen, and it only gets worse and worse as you move through the store.

This hilarious Leonardo DiCaprio meme combines a picture of him from The Great Gatsby and his unmitigated laughter from Django Unchained. It’s perfect.

Leonardo DiCaprio Meme – Quit Making That Face

Leonardo DiCaprio memes

This is a perfect example of what happens when you don’t heed your mother’s warning. “Quit making that face or it will freeze that way.” In Leo’s case, they found a picture of him laughing as a young boy and compared it to him laughing as Calvin Candie in Django Unchained. It’s amazing how similar they are. See? He should have listened to Mom.

Leonardo DiCaprio Meme – Clark Kent

Leonardo DiCaprio memes

This one is so good! And so true! How people never knew that Clark Kent was Superman was such a mystery. Here is proof positive what “Clark” thought of everyone unable to recognize that he was indeed Superman. Slap a pair of glasses on Calvin Candie and you have meme gold. The traction that Leo has gotten from one picture.

Leonardo DiCaprio Meme – Watching Django Unchained

Leonardo DiCaprio memes

In this one, we get two Leos for the price of one. Of course, one of these Leos is him as Calvin, while the other one is Leo as Rick Dalton from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. This one has Dalton pointing to the television as he is watching Django and sees the scene where Calvin is laughing.

Seriously, this one picture proves it’s worth a thousand (or many more) words.

Leonardo DiCaprio Meme – Spamming Department

Leonardo DiCaprio memes

There is gold in them thar hills! In this case, once again we get Leonardo DiCaprio as Calvin Candie, laughing his ass off. Here, it’s all about the spammers and how they feel when users just randomly click “accept” without doing their due diligence. Now the spammers are laughing themselves all the way to the bank.

Leonardo DiCaprio Meme – Politicians Before and After Election

Leonardo DiCaprio memes

This one is probably much more relevant today than it ever has been. Here we get two Leo’s, one again from The Great Gatsby and the other from, what else, Django Unchained. It is a perfect juxtaposition and if you really think about it, kind of sad (but funny at the same time).

The upper picture shows just how smooth politicians can be, smarmy with all of their promises, and the bottom shows just how politicians feel when all of their promises (aka lies) get them into office.

This one picture of Leonardo DiCaprio (Calvin Candie laughing) has produced some downright funny memes. As it has universal appeal, expect to see many more.
