Summary
While looking at the story of DiCaprio's meteoric rise to fame, this updated edition delves beneath his polished Hollywood image to examine just what makes him tick It was only the beginning when Leonardo DiCaprio stood astride the bow in Titanic. Leo has rocketed to become one of the highest paid actors in the world, and his position looks set to be secure for some time to come as the release of a new 3D version of Titanic heralds another sensational year for one of Hollywood's hottest talents. Recently Leo has taken on the lead role in a new adaptation of The Great Gatsby and as the villain in Quentin Tarantino's blockbuster Django Unchained. Both are a far cry from the heartthrob?s humble beginnings when he had to scrape for parts in TV commercials and soap operas before his eye catching performance in Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet. Cementing his reputation with captivating performances in films like Catch Me If You Can and The Departed, DiCaprio won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Howard Hughes in The Aviator. A keen environmentalist and conservationist, he has given millions to good causes around the globe and has never been shy about wearing his political ideals on his sleeve. Yet, although he's spent over 15 years at the top of his profession, Leonardo remains something of an enigma. He has famously dated some of the world's most beautiful women but seems no nearer to settling down, and his often daring movie choices suggest someone still striving for perfection despite his stunning successes
