DiCaprio’s mask mystery

Leonardo DiCaprio reportedly covered his face with an ominous black mask as he made a pizza run in Venice, Italy this week.

The Great Gatsby star is in the city to celebrate the Venice Biennale art exhibition.

He’s been seen this week soaking up the sights with friends, taking a ride in a speedboat, and on Friday drew gazes for his unusual attire.

A photo published by the New York Post purportedly shows the actor walking around with an ominous black mask.

Leo topped the look with sunglasses and a cap.

“We’re not sure why. Maybe he didn’t want to be recognised. Maybe Leo was trying to channel Justin Bieber’s inexplicable gas mask escapades in London earlier this year,” PageSix speculated.

Despite rising to fame in the early 90s Leo recently admitted he hasn’t tired of life in the limelight.

"No, I am not bored at all," he told the UK edition of OK! magazine this month.

The 38-year-old said he tries to keep things interesting by picking projects he believes in.

Having that freedom allows him to be less distressed about the negative aspects of his high profile.

"I try to only pick roles that interest me these days, because I don't want to get bored,” he explained, adding, “I don't want to go to work and not be excited about what I do."
