Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio was born on November 11, 1974 in Los Angeles, California. He began his professional career as an actor when he was only five years old, according to US media. His first appearance was on the television show "Romper Room" and he made several commercials and small roles in educational videos.

In the nineties he appeared in the first series, such as "The new Lassie", "Roseanne" and "Growing Pains".

In 1991 came his first opportunity on the big screen. A young 15-year-old DiCaprio participated in the third installment of "Critters III," a scary, low-budget film. Two years later, in 1993, he shared a poster with Robert de Niro in "This boy's life" and gained notoriety with "What’s eating Gilbert Grape", in which he played the brother with functional diversity of Johnny Depp.

His performance earned him a first nomination for the Oscars and the Golden Globes. The young actor resonated in the corners of Hollywood.

In 1998, the actor became a star for the blockbuster "Titanic". The angelic face of DiCaprio delighted teenagers around the world, who lined their folders with posters that, for months, gifted youth magazines. This was his first, and some would say that unique, purely commercial paper. After the impressive success of the film, the actor moved away from this type of roles and launched into more complex ones that were an interpretive challenge for him.

On a personal level, Leonardo DiCaprio strives to keep his private life out of the spotlight. In 2000, in an interview with Time magazine he said that his intention was to be as ambiguous as he could to not reveal his true personality, his private "I".

During his adolescence and youth DiCaprio dated other boys in the entertainment world of about the same age, such as the actors Tobey Maguire and Kevin Conolly or the magician David Blaine, and they called themselves Pussy Posse, although he claims he has never used that term. His preference for models younger than him does not go unnoticed. Leonardo has been celebrating his birthday, but his partners always stayed at the same age

He has not dated any woman older than 25 at the time of starting the relationship and all his known partners have been models. His current girlfriend, Camila Morrone, an Argentine model, came into the world while DiCaprio was filming "Titanic" (when he was 23 years old). But all this goes unnoticed, it is in the background because DiCaprio knows how to weather the storm.

It is the biggest problem that humanity has faced, "he said on the occasion of the premiere of one of his documentaries about it. Something he did not forget when picking up his Oscar. The actor was named UN Messenger of Peace by his activism in favor of the climate and several audiovisual works on this subject bear his signature as a producer.
