Is Leonardo DiCaprio taking a break from acting? Sadly, yes.
After working on three films in two years, according to the Agence France-Press translation, DiCaprio told the Germany daily Bild:
”I am a bit drained. I’m now going to take a long, long break. I’ve done three films in two years and I’m just worn out.”
Fear not, however, for we will still see his face more than enough. As of late, he’s been promoting Quentin Tarantino’s critically acclaimed 'Django Unchained'. Publicity appearances for upcoming releases of Baz Luhrmann’s 'The Great Gatsby' (due out May 10th from Warner Bros) and Martin Scorsese’s 'The Wolf Of Wall Street' (4th quarter 2013 via Paramount) will likely cut into his time off.
There’s also his production company Appian Way. DiCaprio says he plans to use the time to travel and promote environmental awareness.
“I would like to improve the world a bit. I will fly around the world doing good for the environment”.
What is his personal environmental lifestyle, you ask?
“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.”
Well, this is one of the many reasons Hollywood loves Leo. He deserves a little time off...but not too much.
