Leonardo DiCaprio honored by BAFTA nod

Jan 8 2014, 9:30am CST | by

Leonardo DiCaprio is "truly honored" to be nominated for a BAFTA award.

The 39-year-old hunk has landed a Best Actor nod for his portrayal of scandalous stockbroker Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorsese's riveting new film 'The Wolf of Wall Street', and he is ecstatic to be up for the award alongside Christian Bale ('American Hustle') and Tom Hanks ('Captain Phillips').

He said in a statement: "I am truly honoured to be nominated today by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. These nominations reflect the determination of an extraordinary cast, crew and of course the great Marty Scorsese."

The 2014 BAFTA nominations were announced in London today (08.01.14) and British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor - who is nominated for his harrowing portrayal of Solomon Northup in '12 Years a Slave' - is particularly excited to be considered for Best Actor alongside Hollywood heavyweights such as Leonardo, Christian and Tom.

He told BBC News: "It's been one of the greatest experiences I've had as an actor and as a person, so I can't tell you how excited I am and to be received this way by BAFTA is a really phenomenal moment."

Meanwhile, Dame Judi Dench celebrates a history-making 15th BAFTA nomination for Best Actress for her role in 'Philomena'.

The 79-year-old actress will battle 'Gravity' star Sandra Bullock and 'Blue Jasmine' leading lady Cate Blanchett for the award.

She enthused: "I'm very proud to be associated with this film and I thank BAFTA voters for the nomination. I'm honoured and thrilled to be in such fine company."

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 bet ...

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 around ...

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.)
