Web Catch: Leonardo who? News anchor credits DiCaprio for 'Mona Lisa'

"Titanic" fans know that Jack Dawson, played by a dashing young Leonardo DiCaprio, can draw with the best of 'em.

And sure, DiCaprio was convincing as famed con-man and escape artist Frank Abagnale Jr. in "Catch Me If You Can."

But FOX News anchor Shepard Smith seems to have mixed up his Leos.

The above video (forever immortalized on Twitter) shows Smith reporting “an update from scientists trying to identify the model for Leonardo DiCaprio’s 'Mona Lisa.'”

In his defense, it's Thursday – the day also known as Is It Friday Yet? – and maybe he's had a long week. So Shepard, if you're reading this, we believe this is the Leo you're looking for. (We're just relieved you didn't give a shout-out to this one.)
