Think back to the days of your youth. Before Justin Bieber had Purpose or the boys of One Direction dragged you down. It was a simpler time, when a boy with perfect, floppy hair and a cigarette behind his ear never let go. That’s right, we’re talking about Leonardo DiCaprio circa 1996/’97 when Jack Dawson was our Romeo (see what we did there?). Well, fans are having major flashbacks thanks to new Internet sensation Konrad Annerud.
The 21-year-old Swedish model, musician, and bartender is the spitting image of ‘90s Leo, and now our hearts can go on. Annerud’s Instagram account is like a shrine to the five-time Oscar nominee, featuring some modeling pics, shirtless photos, and a series of shots with cigarettes that will make you feel like you are on the Titanic, learning to spit “like a man.”
“It can become a bit hard sometimes when people call me Leo instead of my name,” Annerud told Swedish website Nyheter. “But it’s fun to be like him. He’s handsome.” (No word yet on whether or not Annerud is looking for his Rose.)
And it isn’t just his Instagram account that is causing a stir. Annerud also admitted to turning heads when he’s out and about.
“It’s much worse when I am abroad,” he told Nyheter. “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.”
The real DiCaprio, 40, who is preparing for the release of his latest Oscar attempt, The Revenant, has yet to comment on his look-alike. But if these two got together in the same room, the world might never recover.
