Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio is an actor, environmentalist and a certified hottie! Known for his blockbuster films with directors like Martin Scorsese, James Cameron, and Chris Nolan, today we celebrate all things that made him… well, Leo! Without anymore wordplay, here’s presenting to you a few things between love and Leo!

Loved for his performance in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape

Leo received his first academy award nomination for this film where he plays a mentally disabled boy who loves to climb water tanks, despite his fear of water. Leo shared the screen with Johnny Depp, and his character, Arnie Grape, became one of Leo’s most memorable. Remember the line “Match in the gas tank… boom boom!”

Loved by Kate Winslet

Among high flying Hollywood friends, Kate & Leo have been buddies in the true sense. In interviews and public appearances they have always been clear about their mutual love, respect and admiration for each other, both personally and professionally. Wonder what Kate Winslet would gift Leo on his birthday? Any ideas?

Loved by all the girls… and even a few guys, wink wink!

Yes, Leo has been in some intense films, and is acclaimed as a serious actor. But let’s not forget that he is also a heart throb. Especially with his roles in Titanic and The Beach, Leo has long enjoyed a seriously dedicated fan base who’ve put him on their ‘TO DO’ List. But when I think of Leo as a romantic actor, I think of Romeo and Juliet and the song, Lovefool by The Cardigans.

Certainly a trend here for tall, lean models. His recent love interests include Gisele Bundchen, Bar Rafaely and latest Erin Heatherton (with whom he supposed called quits). He also dated Blake Lively, who can certainly pass off as a model, well almost.

Loved for his environmental work

There are actors who give their names to causes, and then there’s Leo who dives into them, head on. Leo’s work with environmental and humanitarian causes has long been known, and the honest fact is that his actions speak for themselves.

So on his birthday, we wish Leo all the love and warm hugs he deserves… and whole lot of success!

P.S. In his next film The Great Gatsby, he acts with Amitabh Bachchan.
