The American actor first appeared in the television shows, Parenthood, in 1989 and Growing Pains, in 1990. With This Boy's Life and What's Eating Gilbert Grape, in 1993, he caught the attention of professionals before he earned an immense teen idol status with the hardcore Romeo and Juliet, in 1996 and the international blockbuster, Titanic, in 1997. Rapidly, Leonardo DiCaprio who had always thought of him as an indie actor found himself in the middle of a worldwide madness, the attraction of paparazzi and hysterical young girls. It was his fruitful collaboration with director Martin Scorsese – a relationship resembling the director had engaged with Robert De Niro – that enabled the actor transition from teen heartthrob to adult star with Gangs of New York and Catch me if you Can, in 2002 and The Aviator, in 2004. Leonardo DiCaprio went on proving his incredible and versatile acting skills with such features as Revolutionary Road, in 2008, Shutter Island and Inception, in 2010, J.Edgar, in 2011 and The Great Gatsby as well as The Wolf of Wall Street, in 2013. A committed environmental activist who narrated Al Gore’s 11th Hour, in 2006, the American actor also earned the reputation of being a ferocious playboy, specialised in Victoria's Secret models. Incarnating the ideal romantic lead in his youth, Leonardo DiCaprio managed to grow out strong from a mania that could have installed him in a cliché. However, the actor who has never won an Oscar despite his undeniable talent, is the victim of a long lasting Leo-bashing although he embodies what Hollywood praises: the good looks, the beautiful girls, the cool, a certain arrogance in his amazing talent and the eco-conscious...Some kind of Hollywood hubris symbol.
