Bro King Leonardo DiCaprio Saves Adrian Grenier’s Kickstarter With Last-Minute $50,000 Donation
This whole time I thought being friends with Leonardo DiCaprio meant that you got invited to or thrown bomb-ass epic parties of the century, but it appears there are even better, much more financially beneficial perks.
There is an upcoming documentary about the loneliest sea creature in the ocean where “Adrian Grenier, Josh Zeman & world renowned scientists attempt to find the elusive ’52 Hertz’ whale and fight Ocean Noise Pollution.” The movie about a storied whale that has been heard on sonar, but never actually seen was crowdfunded on Kickstarter.
There was a lot of buzz on the project and even Entourage smokeshow Emmanuelle Chriqui helped promote the doc titled “52: The Search for the Loneliest Whale” with a delightful bikini sideboob pic.
However, do you know what helps even more than a delightful bikini sideboob pic? Being friends with Leonardo DiCaprio. As of March 11, the project was $22,000 short of their $300,000 goal with less than 24 hours until the deadline, and that’s when the Bro King stepped up big fucking time. DiCaprio made a last-minute pledge of $50,000, via his foundation, to ensure that the film would indeed be made.
Ah, the benefits of friendships with Hollywood elite.
Grenier thanked the investors including the one and only DiCaprio in a statement:
“Thank you to the 3,300 backers and the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation for making this science based creative project come to life. These donations validate our ongoing efforts and to get their vote of confidence is a huge moral boost for myself and team Lonely Whale,”
A bro for a bro.
Now that Grenier’s movie has financial backing, we can set our attentions to him as Vincent Chase in the Entourage movie that hits theaters on June 5.
