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."

Robert Downey Jr. Tops Forbes' List Of Top Earning Actors With $75m Take

Jul 21 2014 2:13pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Actor Robert Downey Jr and Susan Downey
Hollywood is increasingly in the business of making movies with disposable actors — performers who are almost interchangeable and easily replaced. The special effects and bombastic action sequences required for the modern blockbuster cost many millions of dollars. Any money studios can save by casting less-famous actors is money that can go to the bottom line. And if those actors can be easily swapped out in sequels, all the better. A dispo ...

Leo DiCaprio shows off his vacation weight gain in Miami: would you hit it?

Jul 21 2014 6:45am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

(
Leonardo DiCaprio has had the summer off. I think he usually paces his projects so he gets summers off, but he’s really been partying a lot this summer in particular. He’s been in Brazil for the World Cup, he’s been in France for the Cannes Film Festival, he’s been in LA with his bros, and now he’s in Miami… not doing much but hanging out on the beach. With his bros, I suspect. I wonder how many of Leo’s friends just get to travel a ...

Here are some photos of LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian “on vacation” in Miami, Florida (they were in Miami at the same time as Leonardo DiCaprio – coincidence?! Probably.) There were more graphic photos of LeAnn but I chose not to use them because A) we’ve seen her bolt-ons in a bikini many times before, B) she really wanted everybody to get a good look at her bolt-ons this weekend and her boobs were pretty much falling out and C) because gross. Besides, she wasn’t doing anything pa ...
