    He used to be called one of Hollywood’s prettiest faces – yet now life hit him hard in the face with a volleyball.

    While playing volleyball with pals, including Robin Thicke and his fiancee April Love Geary, in Malibu over the weekend, the 44-year-old DiCaprio was photographed getting whacked in the face by a ball after failing to make a bump pass.

    According to Page Six, who reported the unfortunate smack in the face first, the “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood” actor escaped the moment sans injury – even his blue Mets cap survived the day.

    Twitter soon turned the photo into a meme, starting to spread it wildly.

     

    For some users, this image represented what happens when you’re confronted by something you were completely unprepared to confront.

    Others were reminded of the 2000 American survival drama film “Cast Away” and the famous volleyball named Wilson, who was the main character’s companion.

    DiCaprio was recently in Cannes, Frances, where he promoted the upcoming film, “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood,” with co-stars Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie. The film is slated to hit theatres on July 26.
