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."

Aug 27 2014 2:26am CDT | Source: WNYC Music

The Hollywood movie about mobster Whitey Bulger has been filming in and around Boston for months, with a high profile list of actors. That means getting Johnny Depp and the others to sound like they're from Boston. And as locals certainly know — getting that Boston accent right can make or break the movie. There have been plenty of films about the Boston mob — Leonardo DiCaprio and Jack Nicholson worked with Hollywood dialect c ...

We could debate for hours who has the best ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Was it Chris Pratt drinking vodka? Was it Olivia Wilde using breast milk? Was it Charlie Sheen dumping cash on his head and challenging Ashton Kutcher and Chuck Lorre to donate $10,000 to the cause? Or was it Leonardo DiCaprio actually donating $100,000 to the cause? But we can no longer debate who is the oldest ALS Ice Bucket Challenge ...

Rihanna: ‘Lipstick draws attention away from flaws, and guys are stupid’

Aug 21 2014 6:15am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

These are photos of Rihanna in NYC on Tuesday. She’s wearing casual/workout gear and looks so ridiculously fantastic. I don’t know if RiRi is heading towards or away from the gym in these pics or is even thinking about working out at all. Whatever the case, this should be the look that Taylor Swift aims towards instead of the orchestrated, perfect gym exit pap shots. Rihanna popped into a feature in the September issue of Elle (the one with Kristen Stewart’s desecration). Rihann ...
