Hollywood heartthrob and versatile actor Leonardo DiCaprio will turn 50 on November 11, 2024. As he races to reach this big milestone by next year, he disclosed what’s on his to-do list.
Is it winning another Oscar award or bagging one more Martin Scorsese film? Fans are speculating and media portals are abuzz with rumors and stories of what he would do. The Titanic hunk bared it all in an interview about his dreams as he finds himself hitting half a century.
Leo’s Down-to-Earth Dreams
In addition to being a dreamboat, Leonardo DiCaprio is practical and yet stoic, with dreams that are well rooted in reality. His response to the question about what big things he hopes to achieve as he nears the cusp of the big 5-0 is quite humble.
“You know what, just one more movie,” were his exact words. He said he had no idea of what to expect when turning 50, revealing that he made no plans.
The man who has given us blockbusters like Django Unchained, Inception, Shutter Island, and others craves to do one more film, shows how grounded he is.
When the Elusive Oscar Embraced Leonardo
Global movie-goers and filmmakers do not doubt the capabilities and talent of Leonardo and would argue he is one of the best of this generation. His filmography boasts of directors like Christopher Nolan, Quentin Tarantino, Steven Spielberg, and James Cameron, among many others.
However, the Academy Award was elusive to him for many years. After getting nominated for 5 consecutive years, Leonardo DiCaprio won the Best Actor Oscar for the 2015 motion picture Revenant. Fans went gaga after he won the honor, his first-ever golden statuette, and almost broke the internet.
What’s Keeping Leonardo Busy Now?
His last movie Killers of the Flower Moon, released in October this year, is a crime thriller that stars Lily Gladstone opposite him. Critics called it the most sinister and coldly pessimistic movie ever to be shot in the Wild West backdrop.
Leonardo is an environmental activist who speaks against deforestation, promotes clean water projects, and advocates wild animals legal rights. Protecting endangered species, restoring old islands, and more are on his agenda.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s Love Life
On the personal front, he is traveling across the globe with rumored girlfriend Italian model Vittoria Ceretti. Ceretti,25, and DiCaprio, 49, have been spotted together since late August; she was the main attraction at his star-studded birthday party on November 11.
Incidentally, Leo is also notorious for dating only women under the age of 25. There are many running memes about this topic. Netizens are now joking about Vittoria Ceretti who is already 25, and call this relationship doomed from the start.
As Leo turns one year older, fans and internet trolls alike wish he would just settle down and be successful offscreen, too. We also hope that he wins another Oscar soon!
