Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo have teamed up in a bid to widen access to clean energy.
At a New York City community garden on Thursday, the movie stars launched “100%,” a campaign aimed at making energy from renewable sources available to everyone — and making it affordable.
DiCaprio has spent much of the last few years on environmental and animal conservation efforts. The actor said the clean energy movement was no longer about politics, but humanity.
“This is a grassroots people’s movement but the ambition of this movement is absolutely revolutionary. Clean energy grows local economies,” he told the crowd.
Never miss a local story.
Ruffalo called the issue “serious.”
“This is really mankind’s greatest threat, and it should take some serious problem solving on all of our parts,” he said. “And we don’t really have to give up anything to do it. ... We will be collecting the sun and the wind that falls on us every single day.”
Don’t call me
So that speculation earlier this week that it was Charlize Theron who dumped Sean Penn? An insider told Us Weekly it’s true.
Apparently the Mad Max: Fury Road actress did that thing dates do to make you crazy: She stopped picking up her phone, in this case during the Cannes Film Festival last month.
“Charlize wasn’t responding to his calls and texts,” the source told Us. “She just cut it off.”
Prince Harry formally ended his full-time military service in Britain’s army Friday, wrapping up a career in which he qualified as an Apache helicopter pilot and completed two tours of duty in Afghanistan.
The fifth in line to the British throne had revealed in March that he intended to end his service to take a more vigorous role in his charitable endeavors, particularly those in Africa. The 30-year-old Harry now will spend the summer working with the Zoological Society of London and with experts in wildlife protection in Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania and Botswana.
Officially a couple
