Leonardo DiCaprio, from movies such as Titanic, Departed, and recently Django Unchained, told German newspaper Bild [via AFP] that he is taking a much needed break for his other goals.
After delving into the filming of three big movies in the past two years, Django Unchained, The Great Gatsby, and The Wolf of Wall Street, DiCaprio says he is “a bit drained” and will be taking a “long, long break” from acting.
This doesn’t mean we won’t be seeing him for the next few years though. DiCaprio is still just as involved in saving the world, specifically environmental protection, as ever. He plans to “fly around the world doing good for the environment,” which started with him living a green life himself. His house has solar panelling on the roof and he owns an electric car.
This isn’t the first time we will be without new movies from DiCaprio for a few years. Since 2002 he has been in the habit of releasing one or two movies every two years until 2010. In 2010 he released two as usual, but then J. Edgar came out in 2011, followed by his most recent three: Django in 2012 with Gatsby and Wolf coming out later this year. He does have an impressive resume, so I’m sure I’ll be able to hold off my DiCaprio obsession with those for a few years.
Are you upset he’s leaving acting for a few years?
