There is another Leonardo DiCaprio walking amongst us. And it's kind of eerie. Last year saw two movies with very similar plot lines. Both Enemy, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, and The Double, starring Jesse Eisenberg, followed men who discover their exact lookalike with disastrous consequences. Now, those movies seem to be playing out in real life as a carbon copy of Leonardo DiCaprio emerges from Sweden. Only this guy is 20 years younger!
Meet Konrad Annerud! He has garnered more than 58,000 Instargram followers for the sheer fact that he is the mirror image of Leonardo DiCaprio...From twenty years ago. Yes, it's as if 90s Leo went back in time to enjoy life as a bartender and musicians. And yes, considering his striking good looks, he also occasionally models. In fact, his resemblance to Leonardo DiCaprio is turning him into a star in his own right.
Making matters even creepier is the fact that Konrad Annerud likes to rock the same slicked-back dirty blonde hair as Leonardo DiCaprio. And he has perfected that same smoldering stare that is capable of piercing even the most unsuspecting heart, be it man, woman or dog! If a movie ever needs to have someone play a young Leonardo DiCaprio, they don't have to rely on CGI technology to de-age the actor. They can just use Konrad Annerud, and people will think Leonardo DiCaprio shot his footage years ago.
Konrad Annerud is currently 21 years old, and looks as though he blew right off the Titanic. The man claims that he is constantly bombarded with selfie requests, and gets mistaken for his Doppelgänger nearly ever single day, which has turned his life into chaos. About the whole ordeal, the master bartender had this to say to Swedish website Nyheter.
"It can become a bit hard sometimes when people call me Leo instead of my name. I get to hear that I look like him quite often, especially since I work as a bartender in a nightclub. But it's fun to be like him. He's handsome."
Konrad Annerud must like all the attention as he's done nothing to change his looks, and even goes so far as to dress like the actor, often wearing leather jackets, tight white T-shirts, tight jeans and boots. He also likes to smoke cigarettes much like the young Leo did, though DiCaprio has since switched to an E-cig. One thing that has become incredibly difficult for Konrad Annerud is traveling abroad.
"It's much worse when I am abroad. When I was in Italy last summer, I kind of felt like I wanted to shave off my hair. It was chaos. People shouted 'Leo!' and wanted to take pictures all the time. It was the craziest thing I ever experienced."
We're not sure if Leonardo DiCaprio has come face-to-face with his younger clone yet. Or how he might feel about all of this. There is some rumors that Hollywood is already dreaming up projects for the two to star in together, but we've heard of nothing official. Some fans think this dude's even better looking than the real thing. You can take a loo and decide for yourself.
