Camera-shy Leonardo DiCaprio was seen ducking his head and wiping his nose inside his Super Bowl suite ahead of the Chief’s sensational win on Sunday.
As the big screen showed celebrities awaiting the game, DiCaprio was barely recognizable as he wore a baseball cap that covered his face and pulled at his nose.
The actor, 49, lowered his head towards the table as the camera zoomed in on him, as if he did not want to be seen, before the broadcast focused on someone else.
His friends, sitting next to him, laughed as DiCaprio tried to deflect the attention.

People online laughed at the funny situation. One person wrote: “They did him dirty for this,” while another said: “No one can just have a booger these days.”
Another wrote: “Leo look up, you’re on camera,” while a fourth said: “The cold environment inside must have given him colds.”
Meanwhile, DiCaprio’s presence at Sunday’s Super Bowl at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas also led to a joke on Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants-themed broadcast for the big game.
The children’s network had a special commentary broadcast with the voices of the characters SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star as they watched the battle on the field between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.
At one point, the camera captured the Oscar winner, 49, who was seen at the game with his friend Tobey Maguire, 48, when the ball was placed at the 25-yard line as a result of a touchback.

The SpongeBob SquarePants character said, “Leonardo DiCaprio, 25 years old, that’s his dating history,” referring to the Titanic actor’s penchant for dating women in their 20s and 30s.
The prank was a hit with social media users, many of whom took to Twitter to express their amusement.
“No way did the Nickelodeon broadcast show Leonardo DiCaprio and SpongeBob SquarePants just say, ‘What’s funnier than 24… 25… that’s in reference to his dating history?’ BRO HAHAH,” said one user.
One viewer said, “My only real exposure to the Super Bowl this year was Patrick Star criticizing a botched play and SpongeBob criticizing Leonardo DiCaprio.”
Another described the situation: ‘They turned the camera to see Leonardo DiCaprio and Spongebob mentioned that he doesn’t date women over 25???????????????’
One user said: “Spongebob with comments was NOT on my #SuperBowl bingo card.”
