Leonardo DiCaprio—winner of the most recent Oscar’s Best Actor award—just wanted some privacy at a hockey game this weekend. 

It’s hard to watch a hockey game when you got your hat down that far, isn’t it?

DiCaprio was caught hiding from the cameras at the New York Islander’s April 9 match against the Buffalo Sabres. Kevin Connolly, actor and long-time Islanders fan, can be seen sitting to DiCaprio’s right. Connolly is best known for his role as Eric Murphy on HBO’s “Entourage.”

The video, uploaded to YouTube on April 10, shows DiCaprio with a popped jacket collar and severely tilted University of California Golden Bears baseball cap. 

One of the game’s announcers likens DiCaprio’s hiding style to Howard Hughes, who Leo played in 2004’s “The Aviator.” 

There is Mr. Leonardo DiCaprio, who is seated in Section 1!

“It’s hard to watch a hockey game when you got your hat down that far, isn’t it?” noted one announcer. “He doesn’t want anyone to know he is here,” responded the other.

The announcers jokingly call out Leo: “There is Mr. Leonardo DiCaprio, who is seated in Section 1!”
