EDINBURGH • Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio visited a cafe in Edinburgh, Scotland, on Thursday to raise awareness of the plight of homelessness.

The actor, well known for his roles in The Revenant (2015) and Titanic (1997), stopped in for lunch at Home, a restaurant that serves Scottish and French cuisine and spends its profits on projects supporting the homeless.

Crowds of fans braved the wet weather to catch a glimpse of DiCaprio, who signed autographs before eating at the cafe.

His fellow Hollywood heart- throb, actor George Clooney, visited a sister cafe Social Bites in Edinburgh last year.
