Of all the legendary actors/actresses who are worthy of an Academy Award, it’s pretty safe to say that Leonardo DiCaprio is the most deserving. DiCaprio has been nominated for the Oscars four times in the past, out of which three were for the Best Actor category. We have to admit, he never fails to mesmerise the audience with his amazing acting skills and he’s comfortable with any role, be it a romantic lover boy in Titanic or a polished antagonist in Django Unchained or a genius stockbroker in The Wolf Of Wall Street.
Reel life aside, Leonardo is also an amazing human being and has taken initiatives for many philanthropic works across the globe. In 1998, DiCaprio and his mother donated $35,000 for a “Leonardo DiCaprio Computer Center” at the Los Feliz branch of the Los Angeles Public Library, the site of his childhood home. In November 2010, DiCaprio donated $1 million to the Wildlife Conservation Society at Russia’s tiger summit. In recognition of his philanthropic work, he was made the Honorary Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Pacific Palisades-based Reef Check Foundation and still serves the position.
He’s also famous for being a ladies’ man, with a long list of affairs throughout his career. He has a very distinct choice when it comes to women, with blondes in their mid-20’s being his favourites. From Victoria’s Secret model Toni Garrn to supermodel Giselle Bundchen, and Erin Heatherton, Blake Lively and Sienna Miller being amongst them.
Leonardo has been a frequent target of internet memes for being denied Oscar multiple times. But most of them seem to sympathise with him rather than troll him. A few of them have been compiled here for you.
We wish him good luck this year the Academy Awards. What more we can say:
“Oscar deserves Leonardo, more than Leonardo deserves an Oscar”
