Actor LEONARDO DiCAPRIO spent hours practising his losing smile for last month's (27FEB05) OSCARS - because he knew he wouldn't scoop the Best Actor trophy for his role in The Aviator.

DiCaprio was glad he rehearsed his reaction, because the cameras refused to leave him alone when Jamie Foxx collected the coveted trophy for his efforts in RAY.

The movie hunk says, "I wasn't surprised that Jamie got the award. But I knew that cameras would be stuffed up my face so I had my response ready. Anyone who says they don't practice is a liar."
