London’s Leicester Square was filled with screams of “Leo” and “Tom” as the Oscar-nominated stars of The Revenant arrived on the red carpet for the film’s UK premiere on the evening of Thursday January 14th, 2016. Fittingly, the British weather was doing its darndest to recreate the harsh temperatures which plagued the shoot of the film, leaving fans (and press) shivering in the cold for merely a glimpse of megastar Leonardo DiCaprio.

While words with the two main stars of the film were scarce, we managed to speak with our new ginger crush and the man who’s in all of the year’s best films (#StarWars) – Domhnall Gleeson. We also spoke with The Revenant costar Paul Anderson.

In spite of Domhnall and Paul’s words with the press, the swooning of the crowd over Tom Hardy, and the presence of superstardom in the form of Leonardo DiCaprio, the real star of the night was Will Poulter. The man was the first to arrive and the last to seek warmth inside the cinema as he took a photo with every single fan on the red carpet. He even was chipper and waving to us on his way into the cinema after 1.5 hours of selfie-posing in the cold. What a trooper.

As an ode to his endurance and newly appointed title of “King of the Selfie”, I present to you –
