Yes, everyone, Leonardo DiCaprio is a Jersey Shore fan!

At least that's what he told the reality-show stars when they ran into him at last night's Vida launch party at West Hollywood hot spot Voyeur...

"I was hanging out in Leonardo DiCaprio's VIP area," Vinny told me earlier today. "He came up to me and said, 'Vinny, you're a good Italian kid.' I guess he saw the episode where my family comes. They were all saying I'm a good kid, levelheaded, have a good family and stuff like that."

While it's highly unlikely Vinny will ever come close to reaching DiCaprio's level of fame, that didn't stop the actor from offering some words of wisdom to the young Staten Island native.

"He was trying to give me some advice about riding the wave and not letting things get to me," Vinny said, adding, "I've never been to L.A. before, so this is pretty crazy. It was my first club experience last night, so it was wild."

Vinny hit the club with Snooki, The Situation, Pauly D, Ronnie, Sammi Sweetheart and even former housemate Angelina.

Meeting Lindsay Lohan wasn't so exciting. "She was just chillin' in her own little zone, you know what I mean?" Vinny said. "I feel like Kevin Connolly and Leonardo DiCaprio were more interested in talking to us. Lindsay was just, you know, another day in the neighborhood for her."
