Leo walking on the set of Inception

It was 2009 when Leo was snapped sauntering around on set in Paris, arms swinging, head cocked to the side, a smile on his face denoting the pleasure of movement. It was the image that launched a thousand memes — including Leo wandering through Mordor, Leo inspiring an official dance and accompanying rap, and even a blog. Perhaps he was just enjoying the thrill of being on a movie set, or he was musing about how scrambled our minds would be after seeing Inception in theaters. Regardless, Leo is greatly enjoying himself — and we’re greatly enjoying that. (Photo: Splash News)

Actor, philanthropist, and former Bop magazine pinup dreamboat Leonardo DiCaprio is celebrating his 43rd birthday on Saturday, Nov. 11. Undoubtedly, he will be doing so surrounded by models and his bro posse, possibly on a yacht‚ but we want to celebrate him for doing one of the things he loves most: happy walking.

Happy walking? you might ask. Well, it’s hard to find a photo of him without some manner of smirk on his face as he traipses the New York landscape, traverses the streets of Paris, and even tromps his way through Toronto. Leo loves walking so much that he famously became a meme, called “Strutting Leo,” thanks to a photo taken of him on the set of Inception.

We don’t think he struts so much as saunters, or jovially jaunts. Join us as we highlight the best examples of Leo’s love for a good stroll.
