Burtsev, who shares an uncanny similarity to Oscar-winning Leonardo DiCaprio, made headlines earlier this year, but now he is busy promoting Pyat Ozer vodka in a new commercial.
In the commercial, Burtsev is apparently searching for the meaning of life, but then he suddenly realizes that his life is nothing “but a fake.” Burtsev is seen talking on a fake iPhone while driving a fake BMW and has a fake romantic relationship with a fake model. Everything is fake for the fake Leonardo DiCaprio!
Such painful revelations about his life lead Burtsev to leave all of that fake stuff in the past and take only Pyat Ozer vodka with him on the journey to a peaceful lake. In the commercial, a picture of the real Leonardo DiCaprio can be seen in the rearview mirror of Burtsev’s fake BMW.
Burtsev first came to the media’s attention in January of this year, when the world was talking about Leonardo DiCaprio’s chances of getting his first Oscar at the Academy Awards ceremony in February. And the 41-year-old actor did, in fact, win his first Oscar for his role in The Revenant.

In January, a Russian news service reported that they had found a Leonardo DiCaprio lookalike in the Russian forces. And then the emergency services officer created his own Instagram account, where he shared stories and pictures of people running up to him and taking selfies after thinking he was the real Oscar-winning actor.
Burtsev has also been posting photos of himself reenacting classic Leonardo DiCaprio film moments, including from such films as Titanic, The Revenant, and The Great Gatsby. And with this recent commercial, it looks like Burtsev has found a way to capitalize on his celebrity likeness.
In other Leo news, one of the actor’s more recent co-stars has come forward and revealed what it was like filming sex scenes with the Oscar-winning actor. Margot Robbie, who acted against Leonardo DiCaprio in Wolf of Wall Street, admitted that the whole experience was “awkward.”
It’s no surprise that filming sex scenes would be awkward for the actors involved. When you’re surrounded by the film’s crew while pretending to be having sex with someone who you’ve met, that’s indeed awkward. And that’s exactly what having onscreen sex with Leonardo DiCaprio felt like for his Wolf of Wall Street co-star Margot Robbie, according to ET Online.

In her recent interview with Vanity Fair, Robbie admitted that her first sex scene with Leonardo DiCaprio was very awkward.
“I’d done scenes where it’s leading into sex or sex has just finished, but I hadn’t done a start-to-finish sex scene like I did in Wolf.”
But Robbie has advice for all those struggling to have sex during filming: The sooner you have sex with your onscreen partner, the sooner you can stop doing it.

It’s long been known that Leonardo DiCaprio has a thing for models. And his new girlfriend is no exception, according to the Bit Bag. The Oscar-winning actor is currently dating a blonde model named Nina Agdal.
A source close to Agdal recently confirmed to Us Magazine that the 24-year-old model is dating Leonardo DiCaprio. The Danish model is popular for her appearance in a Super Bowl television commercial for Carl’s Jr. in 2013 alongside socialite Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, and model Kate Upton.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Agdal have been traveling together to different countries lately. In particular, the source revealed that the lovebirds visited Montauk, New York this summer and also enjoyed their time on a private island in the Bahamas.

And according to sources close to both Leonardo DiCaprio and Agdal, the two are keeping their relationship “super casual.” Sources say the Revenant actor is not planning to propose to the model anytime soon.
