Leonardo DiCaprio drinking coffee memes come from a 2019 interview on the TODAY show with the cast and director of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. A still from the interview shows Leo smiling, perhaps smugly, while holding a coffee cup in his hand.

As the internet is obsessed with images of Leonardo DiCaprio holding beverages, this one joined the ranks of this subgenre of memes along with ones from Django Unchained, The Great Gatsby, and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

In these memes, Leo’s pleased and potentially smug expression is used to illustrate scenarios where someone is happy and/or has just caught someone in a lie.

Leo canโ€™t be stopped
