Store clerk thought Leo DiCaprio was a robber

An Australian jewelery clerk worried a robbery was about to take place when two burly men walked into The Family Jewels shop in Sydney, Australia, and planted themselves on either side of the door, according to TMZ. A customer in the store asked the clerk, whose name is Linda, if she wanted her to sneak outside to call the police, but Linda asked her to go next door instead and alert the owner of the store. As the customer exited, a third man, his face hidden by a hoodie, cap and dark sunglasses then entered. By the time the owner arrived, Leonardo DiCaprio had taken off his hoodie and glasses and Linda breathed a deep sigh of relief when she recognized him, admitting to the star she’d been afraid he and his security team were robbers. DiCaprio expressed interest in a $1600 Nepalese antique necklace adorned with lapis lazuli and coral for his mother and when Linda showed it to him, she joked, “Don’t you go and run out of the store with the necklace!”

    wow stop the presses. Now what would have made a better story is if Leo pulled a Winona or if she’d have shoved a gun in his face.
    Otherwise kinda cute sotry. Unsure how a minor misunderstanding meant calling the newspaper and telling them.
