Amazing Texas Grandmother “Photoshops” Her Late Husband Out of Portrait, Replaces Him with Leonardo DiCaprio
We love nothing more than a sassy Southern grandma!
Familiar faces line the walls of 80-year-old Peggy Zundel’s home in Rockwall, Texas. But when her granddaughter Rebecca Fletcher visited recently, she was surprised to find that a new (though very familiar) face had popped up among those of her relatives.
Fletcher couldn’t help but laugh when she realized her grandma had pasted a photo of actor Leonardo DiCaprio over her late husband’s face in an old photo of the two of them. Amused, she shared a picture of the portrait on Facebook. The post quickly went viral.
“At my Grandma's house. She put a magazine cut-out of Leonardo DiCaprio over her late (not so nice) husband's face,” Fletcher wrote alongside the pic. “The 80+ year old's version of photoshop. I can't.”
Zundel told The Dallas Morning News that one day she mentioned to her daughter that she was tired of looking at the photo of her and her ex-husband.
“He wasn’t the nicest man,” Zundel explained. “But it’s the only picture I have of me that’s worth looking at,” she added with a laugh.
Determined to keep the flattering photo of herself, Zundel says she and her daughter searched through magazines for the perfect image to replace her ex with. When she came across a photo of the Oscar-winning actor, Zundel cut it out and positioned it just-so over her former husband’s face.
“I was looking for anyone with a nice face. It just so happened that it fit that picture,” she notes.
And as if that weren’t reason enough to love her, The Dallas Morning News reports that Zundel is also such a Fixer Upper fanatic that she has cut out and framed photos of Chip and Joanna Gaines. In fact, a photo of the couple is featured next to portraits of her family—six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
“I have two pictures of them. Oh, honey, I just love both of them,” Zundel told reporter Cassandra Jaramillo. “One day before I pass away, I want to see them.”
