Leonardo DiCaprio splashed out $1,400 on beauty products - including facemasks, moisturisers and anti-wrinkle lotions - during a shopping spree
Leonardo DiCaprio spent $1,400 on beauty products on a shopping spree.
The 35-year-old Hollywood star stunned fellow shoppers at Los Angeles' Blue Mercury store by splashing out on facemasks, moisturisers, eye creams, anti-wrinkle lotions, soap and toners - with his publicist later insisting the haul was a gift for someone else.
However, fan and fellow shopper Bonnie Lockhart was unconvinced.
She said: "Leonardo asked a lot of questions and seemed to be most concerned about wrinkle creams."
The heartthrob is taking extra care of his appearance ahead of action movie 'Inception' - for which he has to shed 30lbs before filming starts.
A source told RadarOnline: "Leonardo has gained weight recently and looks almost a bit flabby, which isn't good, especially as the camera adds pounds.
"There's an action scene coming up at the end of the year in which he needs to appear emaciated, so the pressure is on."
Although Leonardo - who plays Jacob Hastley in the film, which is about an officer worker who becomes involved in a blackmail scandal - is finding it hard to cut out calorific treats, he is determined to be in top shape for the scene.
The movie source said: "He is following a strict diet and is embarking on a rigorous workout regime. Leonardo is a pretty determined kind of guy and when he sets his mind to things he always achieves them. Though this is going to be hard for him, you can guarantee he'll succeed."
