Leonardo DiCaprio BEGINNINGS

Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio was born on November 11, 1974 in Hollywood, California, United States of America. His mother is Irmelin Indenbirken, a German-born legal clerk, and his father, George DiCaprio, is an underground comic book artist, producer and distributor of comic books. His father is half Italian (from the Neapolitan area) and half German (from the Bavarian area). Her maternal grandfather, Wilhelm Indenbirken, was German, and her grandmother, Helene Indenbirken (1915-2008), was a German citizen, originally born Yelena Smirnova in Russia. In an interview in Russia, Leo stated that he was “half-Russian” because his two deceased grandparents were also Russian.

His parents met in college and later moved to Los Angeles. He was named Leonardo because his mother was looking at a Leonardo da Vinci painting in an Italian museum when the baby kicked for the first time. His parents parted ways when Leo was one year old, and he mostly lived with his mother. He and his mother lived in several Los Angeles neighborhoods, including Echo Park, or 1874 Hillhurst Avenue in the Los Feliz district (later converted into a public library), while his mother worked various jobs to support themselves. Leo attended Seeds Elementary School (now UCLA’s Laboratory School) and was a student at John Marshall High School a few blocks away after attending the Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies for four years. Either way, he dropped out of high school after his third year, but later he obtained the general equivalent diploma (GED), which in our country corresponds to the high school diploma. He spent part of his childhood in Germany with his maternal grandparents, Wilhelm and Helene. He speaks a little German and Italian.

Leonardo DiCaprio CAREER

Initially appeared in commercials and educational films. At the age of five, he was kicked out of the filming of the children’s show Romper Room for being disruptive, so he followed his stepbrother Adam Farrar’s path to television commercials, and at the age of 14 he got a role in a Matchbox car commercial. His television breakthrough came in 1990, when he was cast in a series based on the film Parenthood; his role as Garry Buckman appeared in 12 episodes. After that, he appeared in supporting roles in shows such as The New Lassie (1989), Roseanne (1991) or the soap opera Santa Barbara (1990), in which he played the young Mason Capwell. He was also nominated for a Young Artist Award for his role in Parenthood and the soap opera, both for best young actor.


He made his film debut in 1991’s Scarecrows Part 3, where he played the son of an evil landlord, Josh, a “blonde-haired average guy with no depth.” The film was not released in cinemas, it was immediately released on videocassette. Soon after, he landed a recurring role on the ABC sitcom Growing Pains, playing Luke Brower, a homeless boy who is taken in by the Seaver family. In 1992, he had a supporting role in the thriller Poison Ivy – Sex, Lies, Revenge. He made his debut on the big screen in 1993, when Robert De Niro personally selected him from around 400 applicants for the lead role in This Is the Fate of Boys.

Also in 1993, we saw him in the film Gilbert Grape, where he played the mentally disabled brother of the character played by Johnny Depp. The film is a tragicomic odyssey of a dysfunctional Iowa family. Director Lasse Hallström later admitted that he was originally looking for a much less handsome actor, but Leonardo was “the most remarkable actor” among the applicants. The film, shot with a budget of 11 million dollars, proved to be a huge critical success, Leo also received several accolades, including nominations for the National Board of Review Award, the Golden Globe Award, and the Oscar Award. New York Times critic Janet Maslin wrote about it: “the film’s real twist comes from Mr. DiCaprio, who plays Arnie’s stuff so startlingly and vividly that it’s hard to watch at first.” His performance is sharp from start to finish,

In 1995, his first work was Sam Raimi’s Western film, Quicker than Death. Sony Pictures was unsure about Leo’s casting, and as a result Sharon Stone, another cast member in the film, decided to pay the actor herself. The film did terribly at the box office, barely reaching $18.5 million in the US, and received mixed reviews from critics. He was then seen in Total Eclipse, a fictionalized version of the homosexual relationship between Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine. In the production, he took the place of River Phoenix, who unfortunately passed away during the film’s preparations. As a minor art-house success, the film brought in 340,000 dollars during its career in domestic cinema.

Leo appeared in the short film Don’s Pub, which consisted mainly of improvised elements, as a favor to up-and-coming director RD Robb. When Robb decided to extend the black-and-white film to theatrical length, Leo and his colleague Tobey Maguire took a court order to prevent its release, arguing that they had never intended the film for a theatrical release, which would have commercial value due to their stardom. The film was finally screened at the 2001 Berlin International Film Festival, where it was well received by critics. Leo’s last film in 1995 was Diary of a Basket Maker, a biographical film about American writer-poet Jim Carroll.

1996-2001: Growing success

In 1996, she starred opposite Claire Danes in Baz Luhrman’s Romeo and Juliet, a shortened, modernized version of William Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy, so it did not contain the original dialogues. The film grossed a total of $147 million at the box office.

Later, in the same year, she starred in Jerry Zaks’s drama, and we saw her again alongside Robert De Niro in Marvin’s Room. The film is based on the 1991 stage play of the same name, which was adapted into a film script by the writer Scott McPherson himself. It is about two sisters, played by Meryl Streep and Diane Keaton, whose paths cross again after 17 years due to a tragedy. He played Leo Hank, the troubled son of Meryl Streep’s character, who is sent to the asylum for burning down his mother’s house.

In 1997, he starred in James Cameron’s blockbuster film Titanic. He played 20-year-old Jack Dawson, a penniless young man from Wisconsin who wins two third-class tickets on the ill-fated ship. Leo initially declined to portray the character, but Cameron convinced him to take on the role because he strongly believed in Leo’s acting abilities. Against expectations, the film ended up becoming the highest-grossing film of all time with a total of $1.843 million, and it remained the top until Cameron’s other film, 2010’s Avatar, overtook it. Thus, Leo became a movie superstar and had many fans: mainly teenage girls and young women who became known as “Leo-Mania”. In May 1998, he was on the cover of at least four teen magazines, and three books about him were among the 6 best-selling paperbacks on the New York Times Bestseller list. More than 200 of his fans contacted AMPAS about Leo not receiving a nomination for his portrayal of Jack at the 70th Academy Awards. However, he was nominated for several other high-level awards, including the Golden Globe. Speaking about the success of Titanic in 2000, Leo said: “I’m not connected to this whole Titanic phenomenon and what my face has become around the world. (…) I will never reach this level of popularity again, nor do I expect to. It’s not something I’m going to try to achieve.” this was also the case with the Golden Globe. Speaking about the success of Titanic in 2000, Leo said: “I’m not connected to this whole Titanic phenomenon and what my face has become around the world. (…) I will never reach this level of popularity again, nor do I expect to. It’s not something I’m going to try to achieve.” this was also the case with the Golden Globe. Speaking about the success of Titanic in 2000, Leo said: “I’m not connected to this whole Titanic phenomenon and what my face has become around the world. (…) I will never reach this level of popularity again, nor do I expect to. It’s not something I’m going to try to achieve.”

The following year, he appeared in a minor, self-mocking role in Woody Allen’s scathing satire about fame, Star vs. In the same year, he appeared in a dual role in The Iron Mask as the evil XIV. King Louis and his secret, likeable twin brother, Fílöp. The film was directed by Randall Wallace, based on the 1939 film of the same name. Although it received mixed and negative reviews, it grossed $180 million internationally. Leo’s performance was well received by critics, with Entertainment Weekly critic Owen Gleiberman writing: “the shockingly androgynous DiCaprio hardly looks old enough to play anyone with hormones, but he’s a fluid and instinctive actor with the face of a mischievous angel.”

His next project was The Shore, published in 2000, based on Alex Garland’s 1996 novel of the same name. He portrayed a backpacking American tourist in search of the perfect life in a secret island commune in the Gulf of Thailand. The film, made on a budget of 50 million dollars, was a financial success, bringing in 144 million dollars worldwide, but compared to his previous project, this film was thoroughly panned by critics. Todd McCarthy of Variety noted that “Richard [DiCaprio’s character] is too much of an American everyman and not a well-rounded enough individual to fully capture our interest and imagination, and DiCaprio, while perfectly watchable, doesn’t endow him with an unexpected twist or distinctiveness, to turn this man from a nobody into a one-dimensional character.

2002 to 2007: Collaboration with Scorsese

His first film in 2002 was the biographical crime drama Catch Me If You Can, based on the life of Frank Abagnale Jr., who used his charm, confidence and many different personas to make millions by cashing checks in the 1960s before his 19th birthday. forged. Directed by Steven Spielberg, the film was shot in 147 different locations in 52 days, making it the “most adventurous, supercharged filmmaking experience” Leo had ever experienced. Catch Me If You Can was critically acclaimed and became an international hit, grossing $351.1 million, making it Leo’s highest-grossing film since Titanic. Robert Ebert praised his performance, noting that while “DiCaprio, who has played dark and troubled characters in his recent films, is lively and charming this time as he plays a boy who who finds out what he’s good at and does it.” The following year, he was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for his role.

Also in 2002, he appeared in Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York, a historical film set in the middle of the 19th century and set in the Five Points district of New York. Scorsese initially struggled to sell his idea to a studio, while Leo became interested in playing the main character, Amsterdam Vallon, the young leader of the Irish faction, so eventually Miramax Films agreed to finance the project. Despite this, the film’s budget was greatly increased due to bickering between the producer and director, eventually making it Scorsese’s most expensive film ever with its marathon 8-month shooting time and $103 million budget. Upon its release, Bands of New York became a financial and critical success. Leo’s acting skills were praised, but in most reviews he was overshadowed by Daniel Day-Lewis’ performance.

Following their collaboration with Scorsese, the pair teamed up again to produce a biopic of the eccentric and obsessive American filmmaker Howard Hughes, who was also one of the pioneers of aviation. The Aviator (2004) follows Hughes’ life from the late 1920s to 1947. Leo originally planned the film with director Michael Mann, who, however, did not undertake the direction after two biopics, Ali and The Insider. This is how Leo sent the script written by John Logan to Scorsese, who quickly signed on as director, and as an executive producer, Leo also contributed to the film as an off-camera producer. The Aviator was also a critical and financial success. Leo received rave reviews for his performance and won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor and was nominated for an Academy Award.

In 2005, the French Minister of Culture made Leo one of the Commanders of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Order of Arts and Letters) for his contribution to the arts. The following year, he appeared in Véres gémánt and A tegla. Blood Diamond is a film by Edward Zwick, in which he played a Rhodesian diamond smuggler who participated in the civil war in Sierra Leone. The film itself received generally favorable reviews, and Leo was praised for the authenticity of his South African accent, which is notoriously difficult to imitate. The Brick is again Scorsese’s film, in which he played Billy Costigan, an undercover policeman active in the Irish mob in Boston. The film was awaited by many, so it is no wonder that it received overwhelmingly positive reviews and became one of the most sought-after films of 2006. With a budget of $90 million, it became Leo and Scorsese’s highest-grossing joint production to date, easily surpassing The Aviator’s $213.7 million. Leo’s performance in The Brick was applauded by critics, and he even won a Satellite Award for best supporting actor. In the same year, he was nominated twice at the Golden Globe and the Screen Actors Guild, both for the 2006 film, and for Blood Diamond he received his third Oscar nomination.

In 2007, he worked as a producer again: the comedy-drama The Gardener in the Garden of Eden presents the development story of a young man, while the documentary The Last Hour explores the problems of our Earth’s ecosystem.

From 2008 to 2012: Spies, heroes, thrillers

In 2008, he played a role in the spy film Web of Lies, based on the novel of the same name by David Ignatius. The film shows the lives of three men who fight against a terrorist organization and each other in the crossfire of the Middle East and the war on terror. For the Ridley Scott-directed film, Leo dyed his hair brown and wore brown contact lenses, based on his own decision, considering earlier political films from the 1970s such as The Parallax Project (1974) or Three Days of the Vulture ( 1975). The film received mixed reception and was a moderate success at the box office with a total of $115 million on a budget of $67.5 million.

In the same year, the audience saw Kate Winslet again in the drama Freedom Roads, directed by Kate’s husband at the time, Sam Mendes. With both of them reluctant to make a romantic film like Titanic, Kate suggested the three of them make the film based on the 1961 Richard Yates novel after reading Justin Haythe’s script and seeing how it related to the 1997 to box office success. As soon as Leo agreed to make the film, production began almost immediately. Leo noted that he saw his character as “unheroic” and “a bit of a coward” and that he was “just willing to be a product of his environment.” To prepare for portraying a 1950s couple in a failing marriage, Kate and Leo watched a number of videos promoting suburban life, to prepare themselves for the film, which eventually received favorable reviews. Leo received another Golden Globe nomination.

In 2008, the reality TV series Greensburg was presented, in which an American city is rebuilt after a hurricane to become the green utopia of tomorrow. Leo worked as the show’s executive producer. In 2009, he once again worked as a producer, this time in the mystical horror The Orphan, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. In the meantime, he continued his collaboration with Scorsese: in 2010, the psychological thriller Storm Island was published, based on the 2003 novel of the same name written by Dennis Lehane. He played Marshal Edward “Teddy” Daniels, who investigates an island psychiatric institution and questions his own sanity. The film grossed $294 million.

Also in 2010, he appeared in Origins directed by Christopher Nolan. The film is based on the theory of lucid dreaming and dream incubation, and Leo plays Dom Cobb, an “extractor” (dream thief) who enters other people’s dreams in order to obtain otherwise inaccessible information. Cobb is offered to live his old life again if he helps plant an idea in the brain of a corporate target. Leo said of the film: “I was intrigued by the concept – the concept of dream robbery and how this character would open up his dream world and how that would ultimately affect his life.” The release was met with critical acclaim, and the film grossed $825 million worldwide. Leo agreed to take a cut of his $20 million fee for his appearance in the film, in exchange for a first-dollar gross point, meaning that you get money directly from the top of ticket sales. The risk paid off: Leo earned $50 million with the film, making it his highest salary to date. In July 2010, it was reported that Leo had turned down a Vikings film to be directed by Mel Gibson, due to Gibson’s anger-filled arguments and domestic violence attempts that had come to light.

In 2011, he appeared alongside Armie Hammer and Naomi Watts in Clint Eastwood’s biographical film J. Edgar, about the title character, J. Edgar Hoover. The film, written by Dustin Lance Black, focuses on the life of the FBI director, starting with the Palmer raids, including an investigation into his private life, such as his alleged secret homosexuality. Reviews of the film were mostly mixed, with a number of critics praising Leo’s performance, but believing the film to be overall lacking in context. Roger Ebert praised Leo’s performance, which he called a “fully realized, subtle and pervasive performance that suggests more than Hoover ever revealed, perhaps even to himself.” In the same year, he produced the mystical fantasy-horror The Girl and the Wolf,

In 2012, Leo played the evil Calvin Candle in Quentin Tarantino’s spaghetti western Django Unchained. During filming, Leo accidentally cut his hand with a bottle, but continued filming despite the injury, and Tarantino decided to use this element in the final film. The film was well received and positively reviewed by critics, and Leo received his ninth Golden Globe nomination. Django Unchained grossed $424 million worldwide.

From 2013 to the present: the well-deserved Oscar

His next film was again directed by Baz Luhrman (director of 1996’s Romeo and Juliet), and this was an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 novel, The Great Gatsby. The film was released on 10 May 2013 and also starred Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire. Critics received mixed reviews, but praised Leo’s portrayal of Jay Gatsby. Rafer Guzman at Newsday claimed that “Leonardo DiCaprio is now the Gatsby to beat. Despite the borderline humorous entrance — surrounded by fireworks and accompanied by Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” — DiCaprio brings this maddeningly enigmatic character. He’s as tough as Alan Ladd in ’49 and as suave as Redford in ’74, yet vulnerable, touching, funny, a spoof and a man. You hear it all in Gatsby’s favorite phrase, in the ‘old sport’, which was a verbal face-twitch that was confusing to other actors. It’s a huge, hard-earned achievement.” Matt Zoller Seitz of RogerEbert.com described Leo’s performance as: “The greatest and most effortless special effects in the film,” he says, “It’s an iconic performance—perhaps the best of his career.” The film grossed $348 million, making it Luhrmann’s highest-grossing film.

Leo once again – for the fifth time – directed Scorsese to make a film about the life of a broker named Jordan Belfort, which was titled The Wolf of Wall Street, and in addition to the main role, he also took on the production job. The man was arrested in the late 1990s on charges of securities forgery and money laundering. Filming began on August 8, 2012 in New York, and the premiere took place on December 25, 2013. He won the Golden Globe Award for the role and received his fourth Oscar nomination. In the same year, he worked as a producer for two more films: the crime thriller Fire of Anger, directed by Scott Cooper, and the thriller Blind Luck, directed by Brad Furman. In January 2013, he announced that he would be taking an extended break from acting to “fly around the world doing good for the environment.”

Although he put aside his acting work for a while, he continued making films as an (executive) producer: in 2014, the war documentary Virunga was released, which presents a group of gorilla protectors. In the same year, the documentary Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret was presented, which presents an environmentally friendly man who tries to find a solution to the most pressing problems of our planet. Leo was also the producer of Catching the Sun, a historical documentary made a year later, which follows the inventors of the use of alternative resources.

In 2015, he played a fur trapper named Hugh Glass in the survival drama The Returner, directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu. The film was well received by critics, Leo’s performance was universally praised, which was also reflected in numerous awards: he finally won his first Oscar for best actor, his 11th nomination, and his 3rd award at the Golden Globes, as well as his first BAFTA award, also as best actor.

He is also active as a producer: in 2016, he contributed to the financing of four films. The documentary The Ivory Game presents a wildlife activist who fights against poachers in Africa, while the documentary Before the Flood shows how climate change affects our environment and what our society can do to stop the process. Of course, he doesn’t neglect feature films either: the thriller/horror Delirium, directed by Dennis Iliadis, was released in 2017, the crime drama Law of the Night, directed by Ben Affleck, was released in 2016, but Leo is the producer of the new Robin Hood adventure film released in 2018. Directed by Otto Bathurst. In 2018, he also produced the psychological horror film Delirium, directed by Dennis Iliadis. It also stars Topher Grace, Patricia Clarkson, Callan Mulvey and Genesis Rodriguez. The film is about a man who inherits an estate from his rich father after being released from a mental institution. Strange events happen, and he tries to find out if there are ghosts in the house, or if it’s all just happening in his head.

In 2019, he was the narrator of the global warming documentary Ice on Fire, and was seen as Rick Dalton, an aging television star, in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, about the Manson Family murders. To fit into the film’s budget, both Leo and Brad Pitt agreed to the relatively low salary of $10 million. According to Tarantino, the pair of the two was the most exciting star duo he worked with. This film also brought nominations for major awards, such as the Oscar, Golden Globe or BAFTA. The film ended up grossing $374 million against a budget of $90 million.

In October 2020, it was announced that she would star in the Adam McKay-directed Netflix comedy Don’t Look Up! was given an address. Along with her, many well-known celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Timothée Chalamet and Matthew Perry also joined the cast. The film premiered on Netflix in 2021.

On August 10, 2015, it was announced that Martin Scorsese would direct the adaptation of Erik Larson’s novel The Devil in White City, written by Billi Ray, and starring Leo. In October 2015, his production company, Appian Way, acquired the film rights to a book about the Volkswagen emissions scandal.

Leonardo DiCaprio Environmental activism

Following the success of Titanic, 24-year-old Leo founded the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation in 1998, a non-profit organization created to raise awareness of environmental awareness. Although it deals with all areas of the environment, it primarily focuses on global warming, the goal is to preserve the Earth’s biological diversity and support renewable energies. The company has carried out projects in more than 40 countries and produced two short web documentary series, Water Planet and Global Warning.

He is praised by many environmental groups for his active involvement in these causes. Among the recognitions, the Martin Litton Environmental Award received in 2001, which he received from Environment Now, as well as the Environmental Leadership Award, which was presented to him by Global Green USA in 2003, should be highlighted.

Leo presided over the national celebration of Earth Day in 2000, where he interviewed President Bill Clinton and discussed some of his plans to combat global warming and protect the environment. In 2007, he played an important role in the creation of the documentary The Last Hour, which shows the relationship of humans to nature and global warming. He was also the co-producer, co-writer and narrator of the film. At the charity “The Last Hour” fine art auction held in 2013, he collected nearly 40 million dollars for his foundation. He urged the participants to “donate as if the fate of our planet depended on us.” This made the event the highest-grossing environmental charity event in the world. According to Leonardo, global warming is the world’s ”

He is an active supporter of many environmental organizations, including the World Wildlife Fund, Global Green USA, the International Fund for Animal Welfare and the Natural Resources Defense Council. In early 2016, he traveled to Indonesia, where he criticized the government’s forest-destroying methods of palm oil extraction.

He only drives eco-friendly vehicles, including an electric Tesla Roadster, a Fisker Karma hybrid and a Toyota Prius. Your home is powered by solar panels. At the 2007 Oscars, he took the stage with former Vice President Al Gore, where they said that the gala had incorporated environmentally friendly methods into the production processes. In 2007, he performed at the Live Earth concert in New York, and in 2010, he was nominated for the VH1 Do Something Award, which is given to people who do good, for his environmental work. In 2014, he was appointed UN Climate Change Representative, and later that year he delivered the opening speech at the UN Climate Summit. In April 2016, he spoke at the UN again, this time before the Paris Climate Change Agreement.

In 2015, he worked as an executive producer on the exclusive editing of the documentary Cowspiracy made for Netflix. In the film, the impact of livestock farming on the environment and the position of various environmental protection organizations on the issue were examined. When accepting his award at the 2016 Oscars, he used his acceptance speech to express his commitment and concern for the environment: “Climate change is real and it’s happening right now. This is the most urgent threat to our entire species, so we must work together and end procrastination. We must support those leaders of the world who do not speak to the biggest polluters, but who raise their voices for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of disadvantaged people who are most affected by this problem.

At the beginning of 2016, he met with Pope Francis, and in addition to his donation, he also talked about matters related to the environment. A few days later, possibly inspired by the meeting, the Pope announced that he would star in a planned faith-based fundraising film called Beyond the Sun. This will be his first acting experience, and the first time in history that a pope has appeared in a feature film. The profits from the film will go to Argentine charities.

In October 2016, Leo joined Mark Ruffalo in North Dakota to support the Standing Rock Tribe’s protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline. In April 2017, he participated in the People’s Climate March, where they protested President Trump’s inaction on climate change.

Leonardo DiCaprio PHILANTHROPY

In 1998, Leonardo and his mother donated $35,000 to establish a Leonardo DiCaprio Computer Center at the Los Angeles Public Library’s Los Feliz branch, on the site of his childhood home. The library was rebuilt after the 1994 Northridge earthquake and opened in early 1999. During the filming of Blood Diamond, he worked with 24 orphaned residents of the Maputo SOS children’s village in Mozambique, and according to his colleagues, he was very touched by working with the children. In 2010, he donated $1 million to Haiti earthquake relief.

In November 2010, he donated one million dollars to the Wildlife Conservation Society at the Tiger Summit in Russia. Two previous plans for the event were canceled, but Leo managed to keep it with his persistence, which is why then-Prime Minister Vladimir Putin called him a “muzik”, that is, a “real man”. In 2011, Leo joined the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s campaign to free a tiger named Tony from the Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete, Louisiana, where he had spent the past decade. In April 2013, he donated $61,000 to GLAAD, an organization that supports the representation of gay people in the media.

At the beginning of 2016, he met Pope Francis, where he made a generous donation and talked about environmental issues. A few days later, probably as a result of the meeting with Leonardo, the head of the Catholic Church announced that he wanted to appear in an upcoming faith-based charity film, which will be titled Beyond the Sun. Not only will this be Pope Francis’ first foray into acting, but it will also be the first time in history that the Pope appears in a full-length film. The film’s proceeds are planned to be donated to Argentine charities.
