After starring in Django Unchained, The Great Gatsby and The Wolf of Wall Street, he thinks it’s time to shun the celebrity life and do charity work instead. Leonardo told German newspaper, Bild: ‘I am a bit drained. I'm going to take a long, long break. I've done three films in two years and I'm just worn out.'
A hectic filming schedule has also meant Leonardo is away from his LA home and he’s more than ready to move back in. He said: ‘I love to have friends over, but I haven't really been home for a year and a half so I don't even remember the last time I did that.
'I've just done three movies back-to-back, so I'm looking forward to getting back to my house.'
But you won’t see him putting his feet up, as many of us would want to, instead, the actor revealed plans to do environmental work across the globe, adding: ‘I would like to improve the world a bit. I will fly around the world doing good for the environment. My roof is covered with solar panels.
'My car is electric. A normal person does not drive more than 50 kilometres (31 miles) a day. That can be done with a plug.'
Talented, good looking and caring for the environment, is Leonardo DiCaprio the perfect man?
