Leonardo DiCaprio is undoubtedly one of my favourite actors. I put him right up there with my other ‘greats’ – Morgan Freeman, Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins.
Did you know that he has been acting since the age of five (he turns 41 later this year, so you do the maths) and, he has acted in some of the most financially-successful and critically-lauded movies of all time? And yet, he has yet to win an Oscar.
This fact seriously blows my mind because, to me, his performance in nearly every single movie has been incredible!
Stand outs, for me, include…
- What’s eating Gilbert Grape – 1993
- Titanic – 1997
- Catch me if you can – 2002
- Django Unchained – 2012
- The Wolf of Wall Street – 2013
Not just a handsome face – his heart is in the right place too
A committed environmentalist, DiCaprio often chooses to fly on commercial flights instead of chartering private jets, which use more fuel. He has also mentioned that he drives a hybrid car and that his house has solar panels.
