The eyebrow-raising price tag of the 2020 Oscar nominee gift bag is over $US225,000. Included in that is a 24-carat gold-plated vape pen – and the inspiration for its placement is none other than nominee Leonardo DiCaprio.

DiCaprio is nominated for Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” LA-based company Distinctive Assets put the nominees’ gift bags together for the Oscars each year, and founder Lash Fary told Reuters that the vape inclusion was thanks to DiCaprio’s well-documented love of vaping.

“I only give this to the top acting and directing nominees. So, because we’re only gifting about 25 people, that means I get the most insanely priced things,” Fary told Reuters.

DiCaprio has been photographed over the years vaping, and in this case, his use of a vape on the 2016 SAG Awards red carpet may have been the direct inspiration for the gold-plated edition in the 2020 Oscars gift bag
