Though he is yet to win an ‘Oscar’ despite proving his acting prowess several times, DiCaprio has already bagged several laurels over the years and is currently a leading Hollywood star. Also known for his antics in parties and clubs, this celebrity has also made waves for his luxurious lifestyle. A source once claimed that the famous actor once showed up at a social gathering and smitten by his charm all the ladies at the party ended up heading to Leonardo’s place from the party arena. DiCaprio’s parents divorced when he was just one and the actor spent most of his childhood with his mother, who took up several jobs to make ends meet. Not many are aware that Leonardo is fluent in German too, thanks to his ancestry.
Starting off his career just by doing commercials, Leonardo broke into international fame with his role in the 1998 Hollywood Blockbuster ‘Titanic’, which became the highest-grossing movie at that time. Since then, he has wooed audiences with his ability to do justice to characters ranging across genres like drama, romance and even thrillers. In 2006, his career reached an all-time high when he was nominated twice in the ‘Best Actor’ category for an ‘Academy Award’, for his roles in the films ‘Departed’ and ‘Blood Diamond’.
Known to be a philanthropist and environmentalist, in 2014, he was nominated as the UN representative for climate change. DiCaprio has attended several conferences held to address environmental issues.
