The word legend seems to get thrown around far too freely these days and there are so many people who get referred to as a legend without actually having achieved that much to deserve such a high label. However, when it comes to the acting industry, it is fair to say that Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio more than deserves to be regarded as a legend.
Leonardo DiCaprio has been working hard in the acting industry since he was just a young boy and, following a string of hugely impressive performances, he is now regarded as one of the biggest and best stars in the business. Now, Leo has opened up about his career and how he has got to where he is today, saying that a lot of the credit should be aimed at his father.
DiCaprio was chatting to Britain's GQ magazine, when he explained to them, "My dad has been incredibly influential. I give him credit for so many of my choices as an actor, especially early on, steering me towards non-obvious sorts of characters and to take risks."
He then went on to add, "My father says basically this: ‘No matter what you do, two things matter. Try to lead an interesting life and no matter what your life is like, try to find a way to wake up every morning and just be happy you can put your pants on’."
Despite giving us some of the best on-screen performances we have ever seen, Leonardo DiCaprio only managed to get his hands on his first Academy Awards at the Oscars this year, although we are pretty sure that it will not be his last. Keep up the good work, Leo.
