Happy Birthday - Leonardo DiCaprio (40)

Happy 40th Birthday to one of the best actors and one of my favorite Leonardo DiCaprio!

Some people like to say his great acting begin after huge success of Titanic in 1997 but I always say he acted amazingly even before that (he just wasn't recognized yet). For example his work in This Boy's Life (1993), What's Eating Gilbert Grape (1993), The Basketball Diaries (1995) and Romeo + Juliet (1996) was tremendous. But I do agree the best roles for Leo happened after 2000.

I wanted to do Best 10 films by Leo but the list was full right away. He has so many stunning movies! If Leo is in the movie, you know it's worth watching. And I'm not even exaggerating. Catch Me If You Can (2002), The Aviator (2004), The Departed and Blood Diamond in 2006, Body of Lies and Revolutionary Road in 2008, breathtaking Shutter Island and Inception in 2010, biography J. Edgar (2011), Django Unchained (2012) and last year's The Great Gatsby and The Wolf of Wall Street. I would recommend you to see them all.

He's currently filming adventure drama The Revenant.

Leo has been nominated for various awards, including 4 Oscars: in a supporting role for What's Eating Gilbert Grape and in a leading role for the films The Aviator, Blood Diamond and The Wolf of Wall Street. He's been also nominated for 10 Golden Globes, of which he won two (for the The Aviator and The Wolf of Wall Street).

I'm sure you know Leo is also a committed environmentalist. Just last month his foundation, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, have provided $2 million in grant to Oceans 5, an international funders’ collaborative dedicated to stopping overfishing and establishing marine reserves in the world’s five oceans. He also made a passionate speech at the United Nations Climate Summit in September: click.

Since May 2013, he's been dating German model Toni Garrn.

I really hope he will continue in doing such an amazing job as an actor and as a human being! All the best in the future Leo! Keep on wonderful work!
