It’s a bird, it’s a plane – it’s Leonardo DiCaprio?!
The 38-year-old actor, who once played an aviator on the big screen, proved he could fly in real life when he hopped on a Flyboard in Ibiza on Wednesday.
With a serious look on his face, DiCaprio appears to be very focused as water power propels him above the waves. Flyboard, which is similar to a wakeboard is connected to turbines and water jets, launches the rider into the air and allows him to float in a controlled fashion.
Though he’s yet to play a waterman, DiCaprio’s next role is just as daring. He appears in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, which opens Nov. 15.
