Leonardo DiCaprio wants you to know he’s not backing the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative

Actor's rep said he only signed a petition to save one Hollywood building

For two months, the backers of the controversial Neighborhood Integrity Initiative have boasted that Leonardo DiCaprio is among its star-studded list of supporters.

But that’s no longer the case.

A spokesperson for DiCaprio reached out to Vox writer David Roberts Thursday to clarify that the Oscar-winning actor and noted environmentalist had never actually endorsed the anti-density initiative, the website’s sister publication Curbed reported.

Rather, he only signed a petition from the Coalition to Preserve L.A. — the group behind the initiative — to save a particular Hollywood building.

The Coalition has since removed DiCaprio’s name from its initial announcement of supporters, which also include Kirsten Dunst, Joaquin Phoenix, Chris Pine, Garrett Hedlund and Chloe Sevigny. [Curbed]Cathaleen Chen
