Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 18 (ANI
): Leonardo DiCaprio
's love for the world and humanity and is no stranger to anyone.
The 42-year-old Oscar-winning actor arrived at restaurant 'Home' for lunch
with a smitten fan, Elise Lovell
, who had won a raffle to dine with him in aid of the ' Social Bite
' homeless charity
, reports the Guardian.
The 'Titanic' star had a broad smile but few words for several hundred fans who braved near-freezing temperatures and rain outside the central Edinburgh restaurant
that runs a chain of sandwich shops to train and employ homeless staff.
Reportedly, part of his meal at ' Home
' was prepared by Biffy Mackay, a previously homeless trainee chef who said it was the most nerve-racking thing she had ever done.
"I steamed his couscous. He's having lamb tagine. I told him I've loved him since I was nine and that I did a project about him at school. He said, 'That's so cool,'" Mackay gushed.
Her reward was a signed note from the 'The Revenant' actor, reading, "To Biffy, all the best."
Lovell said the actor was "absolutely charming", adding, "It was quite surreal but a fantastic couple of hours."
This is not the first time the actor has been to Scotland. On his first visit to the country, DiCaprio was in Edinburgh
as guest speaker at an award event. (ANI
