From Page Six:
This could be Leonardo DiCaprio’s last awards season for a while. The actor has announced he’s retiring from acting indefinitely. “I’m a little bit drained,” he told German newspaper Bild. “I am now going to take a long long break.”
After doing three films in two years – Django Unchained, The Great Gatsby and the recently-finished The Wolf of Wall Street – DiCaprio says, “I’m just worn out.”
Publicity tours for those films still loom, however, but DiCaprio, 38, has other plans for when his schedule slows down. “I would like to improve the world a bit,” he says. “I will fly around the world doing good for the environment.”
In the meantime, he’s living green at home. “My roof is covered with solar panels,” he revealed. “My car is electric. A normal person does not drive more than 50 kilometers a day. That can be done with a plug.”
I could think of a ton of other things you could do with that plug, too, Leo.
However, I guess the most appropriate question in this circumstance would be, “Can we live without Leonardo DiCaprio in cinema for at least a little while?”, to which the short answer is “Yes.” The long answer would be something like, “Why does it have to be for a little while,” or “At least until Baz Luhrmann dies, please.”
