Happy Friday! Welcome to Drink Like A Famous Person, where we let you bring out your fabulous side in the name of some well-earned R&R. Eschew your regular habits this weekend by drinking like...
In honor of the 86th Academy Awards on Sunday, we give you the drinking habits of this storied entertainer and Oscar nominee in the hope that 2014 is the year he finally wins. As Internet denizens are fond of remembering, Leo has won not a single one of these prestigious prizes in his 21-year film career -- although he's been nominated three other times.
So start rehearsing your toast, because Leonardo DiCaprio definitely has a thing for champagne.
Back in 2012, the actor reportedly spent $3 million on Armand de Brignac, the French vintner that hawks bottles for absurd sums, during his birthday celebration at The Darby in New York. A source told In Touch Weekly that the party "ordered 18 cases, then requested more bottles!" And no, it wasn't part of some pre-"Wall Street" method exercise -- all proceeds from the event went to victims of Hurricane Sandy.
If you'd rather save your $250,000 for a house or retirement or your children's college educations instead of a single bottle of champagne, though, the slideshow below has a few other options for you. Labels aside, we can all certainly learn a thing or two about raising a glass from Leo.
He's had a lot of practice in...
"The Great Gatsby"
And of course "The Wolf of Wall Street."
