Leonardo DiCaprio 70 Renowned Quotes

Widely known around the world as the actor “Leo,” Leonardo DiCaprio’s full name is Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio. Leo is one of Hollywood’s greatest American actors, and now filmmaker and producer. He is currently in a relationship with the actress, Camila Moronne. Leonardo came into the showbiz scene with much anticipation, being that he was such an eye candy growing up as a teen. Known already for his good looks, Leo was already seen as a talent from the likes of Robert De Niro who personally handpicked Leonardo to star opposite him in the film This Boy’s Life. From then on, a slew of other roles soon followed, including one of his first prominent roles in the film What’s Eating Gilbert Grape together with another rising matinee idol, Johnny Depp. 

Leonardo would then star in the modern remake of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, and this film became the platform for further success in the future. He would star as a drug addict who had grand dreams of becoming a basketball star. With this role, Leo would take on other unique roles including those in Titanic, The Aviator, Catch Me If You Can, Inception, and The Departed, all of which had him a nomination for the Oscars. It was a surprise then that, being the talented actor that Leo was, he never won an Academy Awards yet. Then it would come to pass that Leonardo DiCaprio would win an Oscar for his role in the period film The Revenant where he played the role of the American hunter and frontiersman Hugh Glass. With how Leo reinvented himself apart from his amazing talent and looks, it would be well to know his mind through some of his famous quotes.

We must empower leaders who don’t speak for corporate interests but who speak for us, our children’s children and those whose voices cannot be heard. Take action!”
