One of the best actors of his generation is ready to take a ‘long, long break’ from his craft.
In a new interview with the German newspaper, Bild, Leonardo DiCaprio says that he is ready to take a break from acting after being ‘worn out’ by a crazily intense last two years:
“I am a bit drained. I’m not going to take a long, long break. I’ve done three films in two years and I’m just worn out.”
The 38-year-old actor spent the last two years focusing on Tarantino’s DJANGO, as well as Baz Luhrmann’s new adaptation of THE GREAT GATSBY, and Martin Scorsese’s THE WOLF OF WALL STREET.
So what will DiCaprio be doing with all of his spare time? Focusing on his other passion: saving the environment:
“I would like to improve the world a bit. I will fly around the world doing good for the environment. My roof is covered with solar panels…My car is electric. A normal person does not drive more than 50 kilometres (31 miles) a day. That can be done with a plug.”
And hopefully, even with doing all that right, the DJANGO UNCHAINED star says that he looks forward to having some fun with his friends:
“I take what I do very seriously when I’m on the set that’s all I focus on. So my vice is to hang out with my friends, talk about absolutely nothing of importance and act like a complete idiot. It’s like therapy to just be a complete idiot with my friends.”
Be a complete idiot as much as you want…only as long as you promise to return to theaters very soon…
