On Tuesday, TMZ published a slew of images of DiCaprio just trying to relax and enjoy the summer in Malibu by playing a friendly game of volleyball with his pals. Unfortunately, not even the actor’s decades-long career and long-awaited Academy Award could save him from the wrath of the volleyball. TMZ caught the exact moment when the ball smacked DiCaprio directly in the face, to both the horror and the delight of the Internet. These photos are more tragic than the “I’ll never let go, Jack” scene in Titanic—also, we hope Leo is okay—but we’re here for the memes, which began pouring out of Twitter almost immediately.
But first, please enjoy the photo that started it all:
“I would have never thought that @LeoDiCaprio could be an accurate representation of me in high school attempting PE,” one person tweeted. “Leonardo DiCaprio getting smacked in the face by a volleyball sums up how my year is going in one image,” someone else wrote.
And of course, there were also a ton of Wilson references, since the whole scene looks like a remake of Tom Hanks’s Castaway with the volleyball starring as the villain. “Finally, @tomhanks gets revenge on @LeoDiCaprio for #CatchMeIfYouCan by sending Wilson after him,” one person joked.
The funniest part of it all is that DiCaprio seems to actually really like volleyball. The Daily Mail reported that he’d been spotted playing with Ansel Elgort at Malibu Beach last year, and a few weeks later he challenged Scott Eastwood to a match. Maybe he’s just rusty since it’s the beginning of summer? Regardless, let’s just hope he and the volleyball work things out ASAP.
