LEONARDO DiCAPRIO got an unexpected greeting while shooting his upcoming movie THE DEPARTED recently, when an excited group of strippers hunted him down.

The TITANIC star, currently dating Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, is in Boston, Massachusetts, working on the movie alongside Jack Nicholson, Mark Wahlberg and Matt Damon, and was stunned when a group of scantily-clad strippers came looking for him.

Damon says, "We had one night where we were shooting all night next to a strip club. And there's just this point where we're driving to the set and like 20 girls in G-strings with dollar bills coming out were like, 'Where's Leonardo?'

"I'm like, 'Yes, my friend, this is my home. Welcome."
