Leonardo DiCaprio may be one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, but that doesn't mean that he isn't too good to get excited about hanging out with his mom. The actor popped up in Paris with several friends, including Lukas Haas and mom Irmelin Indenbirken, to attend a soccer match between Paris Saint-Germain and R.S.C. Anderlecht. During the match, Leo pulled out his phone to snap a selfie with his mom and her male companion, who sat behind the A-list star. Leo is back in Europe after taking a quick trip out to La over the weekend to host the Lacma Art + Film gala on Saturday.

At a breakfast Saturday, reps from Nzfc and the National Film & Video Foundation spoke about the South Africa/New Zealand Co-Production Treaty, which was signed in 2011.
“I see my role as facilitating opportunities for our filmmakers and backing them up with technical advice, as well as meeting as many people as I can who might want to connect with the New Zealand Film industry,” said Mladen Ivancic, deputy CEO of New Zealand Film Commission (in the photo above).
“We have a particularly good connection with South Africa, in a way that we possibly don’t have with some of the other treaty countries, as we share a common language, have a historical connection and there is a healthy S.A. migrant population in New Zealand.”
