Leonardo DiCaprio Reveals Truth About His Reaction to Lady Gaga at Globes

Leonardo DiCaprio became a trending topic during Sunday night's Golden Globes for one particular moment -- and no, we're not talking about his win for The Revenant.

The 41-year-old actor made quite a face when Lady Gaga, who was walking toward the stage to accept her award for Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie, touched his back as she walked by. Caught off guard, DiCaprio noticeably jumped in his seat and winced. The moment exploded on social media with numerous GIFs, Vines and screenshots.

"Oh lord -- that's trending, huh?" DiCaprio said when ET's Cameron Mathison broke the news in our backstage interview room that that memorable moment was the talk of the Internet.

DiCaprio had a completely logical explanation for why he made the face he did when Lady Gaga brushed by him.

"I just didn't know what was passing me -- that's all!" the Revenant star admitted.

DiCaprio won a Globe himself for his harrowing performance in the gritty film.

"This is a type of film that you won't see coming out of the Hollywood studio system very often," he said. "It's an epic art film and I'm just so happy it got recognized tonight."
