Celebrity Photos of the Week: Mr. DiCaprio goes to Washington!

1 of 24

Ahoy there, Goran Visnjic. How thrilled are you to be appearing in the new TV sci-fi series Extant? Judging by the look on his face at this week’s L.A. premiere, the G-Man is bemused or transfused (which makes sense since he used to play a doctor on ER).

Whatever his state, Goran settled down by the time he posed with Extant star Halle Berry on the red carpet. Wisely, he elected not to razz Ms. Berry about her obvious demotion from movie star to TV star. Hey, nothing wrong with the small screen, right, Goran?

Also at the premiere was up-and-coming child star Pierce Gagnon, who plays Ms. Berry’s son in Extant. Sam, you made the pants too long

And here’s Extant cast member Annie Wersching. Sam, you made the skirt too short

And since he’s the guy who actually signed off on Extant, CBS CEO Les Moonves naturally showed up at the premiere with his much younger trophy wife Julie Chen, who just happens to host the CBS series Big Brother. It’s good to be King Moonves

We now take you to Barcelona, where Cameron Diaz waits anxiously for Jason Segel to say something wry and clever at the premiere of Sex Tape…. Wait for it..

Oh, Jason, you wag. Your must have an eidetic memory. How do you keep recalling those wicked one-liners from How I Met Your Mother?

Since we’ve crossed the pond, let’s sneak into the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival, an annual event that helps companies burn up their annual budgets by sending execs to listen to experts babble on the importance of advertising. Experts like Ralph Fiennes. Hey, if Lord Voldemort isn’t the right spokesguy for advertising, there isn’t one

Even more befuddling was the presence of musician/actor Jared Leto at the Cannes advertising hoedown. Judging by his beatific expression here, he’s still riding high from his Oscar win for Dallas Buyer’s Club a few months back. Let’s see if we can drag him back down to earth...

Yo, Leto! Somebody just keyed your vintage Volkswagen Kombi microbus! Nope, that didn’t work

Yo, Leto! Some 30 Seconds to Mars groupie says you’re the father of her child and wants half your annual income for the rest of your career! Huh, he actually posed for a selfie with her

Yo, Leto! The Food and Drug Administration just declared that tie-dyed T-shirts are hazardous to your health. Yep, that did it

Now to Washington, D.C., where Leonardo DiCaprio appeared in support of Barack Obama’s plan to create the largest marine preserve in the world. Nothing says sincerity like an actor in a suit he nicked from his last movie

But Leo is actually serious about his personal conservation efforts. Look, he even has his own foundation, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. They put the name up on the overhead and everything

And without a supermodel in sight, Leo was focused and spoke passionately about his efforts to spread the word about the impending ecological apocalypse. Now, if he can just get through his speech without reverting to standard DiCaprio behaviour...

Stand down, Leo! Secretary of State is just a job title!

Meanwhile in New York, ex-Heroes star Zachary Quinto garnered solid fashion accolades at the TrevorLIVE Benefit by dressing like a young boy ready for his Bar Mitzvah

Strangely enough, so did Ellen Page at the same event

And our last stop is in Hollywood, where the cast of True Blood showed up in force for the premiere of the icky vampire saga’s seventh and final season. Let’s give Rutina Wesley the benefit of the doubt by assuming she really had to get dressed in a hurry

Also at the True Blood premiere was that fine Aussie actor Ryan Kwanten, inexplicably attired as a forties-era movie bellboy for the occasion. Call for Philip Morris!

And looky here, isn’t that Lea Thompson? She’s never appeared on an episode of True Blood, but wasn’t she just adorable on Caroline in the City?

Ditto for Michael Emerson, best known for playing a creepy guy on Lost and currently playing a creepy magnanimous guy on Person of Interest, shown here with wife Carrie Preston, who has actually appeared on True Blood. A night out is a night out in Hollywood

And perhaps the biggest draw at the True Blood premiere party: Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., the eldest son of you-know-who and just recently released from the hyperbaric chamber left to him by the late King of Pop. It’s eerie how much he looks like his father, right?

Eerie and then some. Good for you, little Michael. Don’t stop ‘til you get enough. And give our regards to Blanket
