Leonardo DiCaprio's Old Family Photo Has Sparked A Debate About Women's Armpit Hair

In just a week, the photo has amassed over 7,400 comments and 102,000 reactions, with people debating whether Leo's mom's armpit hair is shocking, totally natural, or just a sign of their ~bohemian lifestyle~ at the time.


DiCaprio's public relations team did not immediately reply to BuzzFeed News' request for comment — probably because they literally had a thousand other things more important to do.
