Answer The Phone, Leo! Five Million $$$ Is Calling!

| Filed under: Leonardo DiCaprio


Wow! Nice work if you can get it!

Sources are reporting that Leonardo DiCaprio has agreed to shoot a TV commercial overseas for a Chinese cell phone company, Guangdong OPPO Mobile Telecommunications Corp. He'll fly over to Asia late in April and the commercial will air sometime later this year.

His pay-out for this seemingly simple gig? $5 million!!!

Damn! How much yuan is that?!?!?!

We're hearing that this deal will be among the most lucrative one-off endorsement deals to date for Leo. (Tag Heuer and Suzuki paid him pretty handsomely as well for the ads he did for them.)

You might think that's pretty excessive and you'd be right - but considering all the good Leo does, we imagine he is going to be spreading that wealth around.

    The only reason you liked this story is because you think Guang means "long thick".

    I think it is stupid that the Chinese don't feel that any of their stars are big enough, so have to use someone white.

    So true, I'm Chinese-German and I always get better service than my Asian cousins when I'm there. They love whites (and are racist towards other Asians, lol). But the wireless business there is insanely competitive (that's why their rates are SOOO much better than N.America) so I don't think it's excessive at all.

    Didn't some Asian businessman pay 1.5 mil for a dog recently? I mean if a red-headed poop machine goes for that much then Mr.Inception should get more!

    1.3 Billion people, and they give this one guy 5 Million dollars for a commercial.
    Business as usual.
