Over 30 years as an artist, Leonardo DiCaprio has created his own ‘brand’ in Hollywood. He still maintains his fame and charm on the screen even though he doesn’t pursue market films or “hang on” to billion-dollar franchises.
Greatness in Hollywood
Born in 1974 in Los Angeles (USA), the child of the DiCaprio family was called Leonardo – after Leonardo da Vinci, because the mother realized her son first kicked in her stomach while she was looking at the artist’s painting. This masterpiece is in the Italian museum. Born in the “promised land” of world cinema with a special name, the passion for art has smoldered in Leonardo DiCaprio, growing with him and reaching outstanding achievements in the future.
The male star started appearing in television commercials and got his chance in the series Romper Room (1980). Although active early, it was not until the late 1980s that the 7X handsome man officially entered the film world. Leonardo DiCaprio got his first big TV role in 1990 as an adopted homeless boy on the ABC sitcom Growing Pains.
Realizing the acting potential of this rookie artist, Robert De Niro chose him to co-star in the movie This Boy’s Life and was well received.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s fame began to rise when he played the male lead in the movie Romeo + Juliet (1996). A face without dead corners with eyes that can speak, a small, angular chin, and the image of a passionate, romantic and sweet Romeo make him the dream “prince” of many girls.
Only a year later, the male star 7X had a spectacular “makeover” with the image of a naked, romantic character in the blockbuster Titanic directed by James Cameron. The sad love story of Jack and Rose has touched millions of global audiences and brought the main star couple to A-list stars.
After the incredible success of Titanic, Leonardo DiCaprio made a choice that helped define his film career for the next two decades.

Director Quentin Tarantino said of the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor: “One of the things I like about Leo is that he doesn’t do two movies a year.” The powerful filmmaker likens the actor to Al Pacino or Robert De Niro in the 1970s, when they did not try to appear as densely on the screen as other stars, but devoted themselves to one work.
And talented director Martin Scorsese called Leonardo DiCaprio his “perfect muse”. The legendary filmmaker praised, “There’s one important thing about him that I’ve always wanted to say is that Leo was born to be a movie actor. He can act well in films without words because his facial expressions and eyes are soulful without having to speak.”
