Has anyone ever told you that you look like someone famous? 33-year-old Roman Burtsev always hears that he looks like Leonardo DiCaprio, and now he's committed himself to becoming more like the famous actor in a new Russian reality show, Romance With DiCaprio.
DiCaprio is a big deal in Russia, so Burtsev has become a social media sensation since the Internet discovered just how much he looks like the 41-year-old American actor. When a local TV station found out about "Fat Leo," they turned the emergency services technician into a reality star.
Romance With Dicaprio has remade parts of The Revenant and recreated the iconic image of Kate and Leo on the prow of the Titanic by having Burtsev pose with regular women.
In addition to free voice lessons and sessions with a dietician, the show also promises to find Burtsev a lady. He's already been ice skating and karaoke-ing with a handful of hopeful gals.
What does DiCaprio have to say about his dopplegänger? Nothing yet, but we're hoping he might comment soon once Romance With DiCaprio gains a little more clout. Leo has previously mentioned that he'd like to play Putin in a movie. Maybe Burstev could play Leo in the movie about the making of the Putin movie?
