Happy birthday Leonardo DiCaprio! I hope you know that you are considered God’s gift to womankind. Actually I’m sure you know that already and as everyone at the MissMalini HQ is fangirl-ing over everything you do, here’s a list of 10 things that make you the reason our hearts to go on! I’m sure you lovely people (who are reading this brilliant blog) will agree with my wonderful reasons.
1) Because he was the first Romeo we fell madly in love with!
Baz Luhrmann‘s Romeo + Juliet is one of the best adaptations of Shakespeare‘s tragedy hands down! I only wished for the ending to change in this one. Like why do you need to kill teenagers! Okay forget the girl, why would anyone want to kill Leo?
Look at him when he’s crying *sob*
Look at their young, fresh love *sigh*
Leo is best.
2) Because he taught Rose how to fly
Would this scene be considered as iconic as it is without Leo’s wonderful face in it? Nope! Also, don’t forget that he is the ‘king of the world‘.
3) Because he played the most brilliant con-artist who we were all weirdly attracted to
Merry Christmas to you too, king of my heart.
Don’t laugh off my emotions Leo!
4) Because he forced himself into our dreams and we had no problem
Why would we have a problem when we know he’d find himself in our dreams?
He should be the one having a problem with the kind of dreams we have of him.
5) Because he dates the hottest women in the world but we know it’s us (by us I mean me, myself) he actually wants to marry
It’s cool, have your fun..I’ll wait.
As you know and as Blair Waldorf has famously said:
I’m not a stop along the way, I’m a destination
6) Because his friendship with Kate Winslet is adorable
These two are the best! Leo even walked Kate Winslet down the aisle when she got married to Ned Rocknroll (love the surname).
I still hope they end up together. Just a thought you know…
7) Because he is easily one of the finest actors of our generation
Who needs an Oscar? He has our hearts!
8) Because nobody parties like Leo
Show us how it’s done Leo!
Look at that swag.
Just look at it!
9) Because he doesn’t need an Oscar when he has this meme
The best Leo is the ‘Strutting Leo‘!
10) Because no one can look as attractive as he does with a paunch and a beard.
Cheers to you ol’ sport! Have a rocking one!
