Leonardo DiCaprio did NOT fly a Sydney-based eyebrow artist to Los Angeles to tend to his eyebrows before the Oscars, despite a fake news story. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this. We’re told it’s 100 percent “untrue.”

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, DiCaprio got “primed for the Oscars by Australian ‘eyebrow artist’ Sharon-Lee Hamilton.” The newspaper alleges that before the Oscar-winner hit the red carpet on Sunday, he had Hamilton “trim and wax [his] brows.” The tabloid notes her services usually cost 200 Australian dollars, which is a little more that $150 in the U.S., but the bill goes much higher when her travel costs have to be covered.

Filling out the tabloid’s article are claims about other celebrities whose eyebrows she’s supposedly tended to, including DiCaprio’s buddy Tobey Maguire and his estranged wife Jennifer. The paper quotes Hamilton as saying, “I first began doing Jen Maguire while they were here in Sydney filming The Great Gatsby.

Curiously, however, Hamilton does not actually tell the paper she was flying to Los Angeles to do DiCaprio’s brows for the Academy Awards. There’s not one single quotation from her specifically about the actor. Instead, the way the article was written seemingly gives the impression that Hamilton flew around 15 hours from Sydney to Hollywood to pamper DiCaprio at a tremendous cost.

But it’s all untrue. Hamilton did not trim, wax or do anything to DiCaprio’s eyebrows before he handed the Best Actress Oscar to Emma Stone. A mutual friend of Gossip Cop and DiCaprio’s assures us it’s complete “BS.”
