Leonardo DiCaprio is such a convincing actor, he can make people think he’s a jewel thief even when he’s not trying.
The owner of a Sydney jewelry shop claims his sales assistant mistook DiCaprio for a robber during a confusing – but amusing – moment earlier this week.
Two of the actor’s burly bodyguards approached the store and kept watch, making the suspicious clerk fear they were casing the joint.
When DiCaprio himself came in wearing a hoodie and dark sunglasses, the sales assistant didn’t recognize him and feared a robbery was underway.
She took precautions, sending someone to alert the store’s owner, who had stepped out for coffee.
“Linda sent the customer next door to get me, thinking the shop is about the be robbed by these guys,” the proprietor tells the Daily Telegraph. “By the time I get in there Linda has realized who she was serving and let me know everything was all right.”
