The New York Post is being mocked for its headline claiming that Leonardo DiCaprio - a famously recognizable man - looks unrecognizable in his new role in Martin Scorsese's latest film.

"Leonardo DiCaprio unrecognizable in first photos of new Scorsese film," the Post tweeted Monday alongside an image of DiCaprio and his "Killers of the Flower Moon" costar Lily Gladstone. Unfortunately for them, Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio looks exactly like Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

Film writer Scott Weinberg wrote: "The only way Leo is 'unrecognizable' in this photo is if he's playing the woman, the bowl, or the salt shaker."

While DiCaprio is hardly hidden under make-up or prosthetics here, he has been a little more transformative in previous performances, such as his grizzled, Oscar-winning turn in "The Revenant" or his villainous role in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained."

"Killers of the Flower Moon" is one of the most hotly anticipated upcoming movies, with many wondering if DiCaprio will earn another Oscar nomination to add to his existing seven.

Directed by Martin Scorsese and also starring Robert De Niro, "Killers of the Flower Moon" is a western movie following several mysterious murders in the Osage County in the 1920s.

The movie, which does not have a release date as of yet, will be released in theaters - although it is unclear if it will also be released on Apple TV+, since the movie is part-funded by Apple despite Scorsese's recent comments about streaming services.
