Leonardo DiCaprio never tempted by drugs

Dec 16 2013, 5:32am CST | by

Leonardo DiCaprio has never been tempted to try drugs.

The 39-year-old actor - who grew up in Los Angeles - admits he's never been swayed into the path of illegal substances, like many stars in the public eye, because he'd watched from a young age how they can cause pain in users' lives.

He is quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying: "I'd seen all the hedonism and insanity of the world of drugs. I grew up in a hardcore neighborhood. Then coming to Hollywood and actually starting to make a career, you see the stuff around you and you're like, 'I saw this at age seven'. It's never really been a problem for me."

The 'Wolf of Wall Street' star is hotly tipped to receive an Academy Award for his portrayal of American businessman Jordan Belfort in the biographical black comedy film, but he insists he's not taking it too seriously yet.

He explained: "I realised long ago you can't control what people think is worthy of an award. That's so beyond your control. It's something one shouldn't even attempt to manipulate, because, if you do, that's transparent. I have no idea [how I'll get on], I really don't."

Meanwhile, Leonardo has decided to take a "long break" from acting after the promotion for 'Wolf of Wall Street' has finished because he feels exhausted.

He said "I have done three films in two years. I am most certainly drained now. I will now take a long break before I come back."

Simone Holtznagel Is The New Face Of Guess

Oct 9 2014 2:49pm CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

Australian models seem to do well for themselves. Unemployment rates among hot blond women with large hooters runs about zero. That takes into account the vast majority who need not look for a job in the first place. This chick is the new face of Guess. Which I think means jeans and jackets primarily for eventual resell in Moroccan bazaars. She joins a long list of Guess girls who have gone on to fuck and marry very successfully like Claudia Schiffer, Alessandra Ambrosio, ...

Miles Teller on John Cusack: ‘I guess we look alike… but I don’t want his career’

Oct 8 2014 6:45am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Miles Teller is doing the promotional rounds to support Whiplash, the little indie movie with major buzz at many different film festivals. JK Simmons is pretty much guaranteed a Best Support Actor Oscar nomination (if not the actual award) for the film, and I’m sure the film will become one of Teller’s calling cards for casting agents for years to come. Miles is still recovering (sort of) from his W Magazine interview, where he basically said that doing Divergent was a business decisio ...

Lindsay Lohan Photoshops Herself Into Charity Photo, Continues to be Ridiculous

Earlier today, we reported that Lindsay Lohan is teaming up with Oprah for a second season of her reality show that no one watches.  Between that and the fact that Lindsay is actually getting occasional, semi-decent reviews for her performance in a London production of Speed the Plow (after nearly being laughed off the stage in her debut), it was really starting to look like she'd managed to turn her life around.

Oct 3 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Kate Winslet covers the new issue of Marie Claire UK. I wonder what she’s promoting? Let me look it up…eh, your guess is as good as mine. Maybe she’s promoting A Little Chaos, which doesn’t come out in America until next year. Maybe she’s promoting one of her modeling contracts. Maybe she’s just promoting herself and how she’s going to turn 40 years old (in October 2015). In any case, it’s a nice cover and a pretty nice shoot. Kate manages to get through the interview with ...
