Biography for Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio (born Nov. 11, 1974 (43 years ago)) is an American actor and movie producer whose career rose with his role in the TV sit-com Growing Pains and quickly moved to films.

His critically acclaimed breakthrough movie performance came in This Boy's Life, and was quickly followed by What's Eating Gilbert Grape. His performance as the mentally handicapped brother of Johnny Depp (9 walls), in the title role, brought him nominations for the Golden Globe and Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He gained fame for his role as Jack Dawson in Titanic, and has starred in many other successful movies including Romeo + Juliet, Catch Me If You Can, and Blood Diamond, for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor.

Another Academy Award nomination came for his role as Howard Hughes in The Aviator, directed by Martin Scorsese. He has also worked with Scorsese in movies such as Gangs of New York and The Departed. This working partnership brought comparison to the earlier working relationship between Scorsese and actor Robert De Niro (6 walls), who also benefited from roles in Scorsese movies early in his career.

DiCaprio has also been nominated two times for BAFTA, three times for SAG and is a Silver Bear Award winner.

Early life

DiCaprio was born in Los Angeles, California, the only child of Irmelin (nťe Indenbirken), a former legal secretary, and George DiCaprio, an underground comic artist and producer/distributor of comic books. His mother moved from Oer-Erkenschwick, Germany, to the U.S. during the 1950s, while his father is a fourth-generation American of half Italian and half German descent. His maternal grandmother, Helene Indenbirken, who was born Yelena Smirnova, was an immigrant from Russia. DiCaprio's parents met while attending college together and subsequently moved to Los Angeles. He was named after artist Leonardo da Vinci, as his pregnant mother was standing in front of a da Vinci painting at a museum in Italy when DiCaprio first kicked. His parents divorced when he was aged twelve months and he lived mostly with his mother, although his father was around intermittently. During his childhood, he attended Seeds Elementary School. He was interested in baseball cards, comic books, and he frequently visited museums with his father. DiCaprio and his mother lived in several neighborhoods such as Echo Park.

During his teen years, he lived at 1874 (143 years ago) Hillhurst Avenue, Los Feliz district of Los Angeles, California (which was later converted into a local public library) and his mother worked several jobs to support them. He graduated from John Marshall High School a few blocks away, after attending the Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies for four years.

Personal life

DiCaprio dated Brazilian supermodel Gisele BŁndchen (30 walls) on and off from 2001 (16 years ago) to 2005 (12 years ago), and has also dated Kristen Zang. Since 2005 (12 years ago), he has dated Israeli model Bar Refaeli. He is close friends with Tobey Maguire and Titanic and Revolutionary Road co-star Kate Winslet. He was childhood friends with the late Christopher Pettiet.

On Aug. 5, 2008 (9 years ago), DiCaprio's maternal grandmother, Helene Indenbirken (b. Jul. 7, 1915 (102 years ago)), died in Oer-Erkenschwick, Germany, at the age of 93. His grandmother was an important pillar in his life; DiCaprio called her "Oma" (Grandma) and took her to some of his movie premieres. He had visited her in Germany in the last days of her life.

DiCaprio owns a home in Los Angeles and an apartment in TriBeCa, in Manhattan, New York. He bought an island in Belize where he is planning to create an eco-friendly resort, as well as an apartment in Riverhouse, an eco-friendly building overlooking the Hudson River in Manhattan.

DiCaprio has said in interviews that his favorite TV show is The Twilight (54 walls) Zone and he plans to make a series of movies based on episodes written by Rod Serling.
