21-year-old Swedish model and musician Konrad Annerud has been the talk of the web lately. Sadly it is not because of his own talents but because he is the spitting image of award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
Pictures of Annerud online show his resemblance to DiCaprio through his eyes and blond floppy hair, most definitely DiCaprio circa 1997.
Annerud says, “It can be a bit hard sometimes when people call me Leo instead of my name. But it’s fun to be like him. He’s handsome.” Yes Konrad it could worse, you might have been born with the looks of a less successful and less attractive actor.
“It’s much worse when I am abroad. When I was in Italy last summer, I kind of felt like I wanted to shave off my hair. It was Chaos. People shouted ‘Leo!‘ and wanted to take pictures all the time,” Annerud tells Swedish website Nyheter24. Agreed that can become problematic especially if you’re just trying to have a vacation yourself.
Annerud has turned into a social media sensation, on his Instagram account he has more that 18,000 followers. There’s been no comment yet from the now 40-year-old DiCaprio as to whether he thinks Annerud looks like him or not.
