Reporter reads more into TV interview than is really there. Ghosts, especially ghosts haunting celebrities, are a big hit getter.
The Titanic actor is frequently awoken by eerie creaking sounds at his California mansion and has to get out of bed and check the windows and doors to reassure himself burglars are not on the premises.
He admits he has been left spooked by the ghost-like sounds and is now thinking about selling up and moving on.
In an interview on British TV news show Lorraine, DiCaprio says, “(I’ve been scared) in my own house. My home makes weird noises at times and I have to get up in the middle of the night and check if there’s somebody breaking in. It’s like creaking or something – these weird ghost noises, but I don’t believe in ghosts. It’s like the wind or the way it was built.”
If he doesn’t believe in ghosts and he’s probably onto something with his own theory, why make it sound like he does? Typical of these celeb stories – they are made out to be more than they are. It also leads readers to believe that their favorite celebs believe in ghosts (even though he states he doesn’t) so THEY MUST BE REAL! RIGHT? Ugh. If only people were more interested in science and world events instead of celebrity gossip… I know, keep dreaming.
