Leonardo DiCaprio is an American actor, film producer, and environmentalist. He has often played unconventional roles, particularly in biopics and period films. As of 2019, his films have grossed $7.2 billion worldwide, and he has placed eight times in annual rankings of the world's highest-paid actors.
Born in Los Angeles, DiCaprio began his career by appearing in television commercials in the late 1980s. In the early 1990s, he played recurring roles in various television series, such as the sitcom Parenthood. Leonardo DiCaprio had his first major film role as Tobias "Toby" Wolff in This Boy's Life (1993). 19-year-old Leonardo received critical acclaim and first Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance as a developmentally disabled boy Arnie Grape in What's Eating Gilbert Grape (1993), becoming the seventh-youngest nominee in the category. He achieved international stardom in the epic romance Titanic (1997), which became the highest-grossing film to that point. After a few commercially unsuccessful films, DiCaprio starred in two successful features in 2002: the biographical crime drama Catch Me If You Can and the historical drama Gangs of New York, which marked his first of many collaborations with director Martin Scorsese.
DiCaprio portrayed Howard Hughes in The Aviator (2004) and continued to receive acclaim for his performances in the political thriller Blood Diamond (2006), the crime drama The Departed (2006), and the romantic drama Revolutionary Road (2008). In the 2010s, he starred in the science fiction thriller Inception (2010), the western Django Unchained (2012), the biopic The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), the survival drama The Revenant (2015), and the comedy-drama Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019), all of which were critical and commercial successes. His accolades include an Academy Award, a BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe Award for The Revenant as well as two other Golden Globes for The Aviator and The Wolf of Wall Street.
DiCaprio is the founder of Appian Way Productions—a production company that has produced some of his films and the documentary series Greensburg (2008–2010)—and the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, a nonprofit organization devoted to promoting environmental awareness. He regularly supports charitable causes and has produced several documentaries on the environment. In 2005, he was named the commander of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres for his contributions to the arts, and in 2016, he was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine.
In October 2020, it was announced that DiCaprio will star in an Adam McKay-directed comedy film for Netflix called Don't Look Up, featuring an ensemble cast including Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Timothée Chalamet, Kid Cudi, Matthew Perry, and Ariana Grande.
