Is it just me or does Leonardo DiCaprio get (or get to choose from) the coolest film roles around? I’m not a massive film buff and I don’t really like most generic Hollywood blockbusters, I can watch even less on regular TV. I can’t relate to the whole ‘guy gets the girl’ aspect of it all in particular :). I’ve personally always preferred to read a good book instead or, particularly in my younger days, play video games.
I can’t say I’m a huge fan of Leonardo DiCaprio, I’ve heard some sources say the guy in real life is a complete jerk and that his money and status has gone to his head giving him an ego the size of Texas. Then again, I’m uninformed and wouldn’t like to judge, he’s certainly not stingy with his money though, having donated large sums to charity. None the less, I love his films and I know if I could be in films I would choose his films!
I’ve picked the movies above out as my personal favourites but he has been in many a great film. Speaking of films and TV, I signed up with a company that provides extras to the TV and film industries not too long ago as one of my side projects. After providing my photos I immediately got a call possibly offering me a role as an unnamed and nondescript ‘officer’ in the TV series ‘This is England’. My photos then got rejected and I wasn’t required in the end.. I had stars in my eyes for a minute there :).
