Leonardo DiCaprio Bio

Leonardo DiCaprio went from child star to Hollywood hunk in no time at all. Now he has won the heart of our favorite Gossip Girl, Blake Lively. Learn more in Leo’s Kidzworld bio!

Humble Beginnings

Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio was born in Los Angeles, California. Throughout his acting career he has appeared in more than 27 movies and six TV shows. As a child he filmed several commercials and made guest appearances on TV shows like Roseanne and Parenthood. His big break came in 1991 (he was 17-years-old) when he was cast as Luke – a homeless boy – in the popular show Growing Pains. It was during this time that he was able to make Hollywood connections and focus on shaping his acting skills. From there Leo started his quick climb to fame, starring alongside Hollywood greats like Johnny Depp, Gene Hackman and Kevin Connolly.

Teen Heartthrob

In the late 1990s Leo co-starred with Claire Danes in Romeo + Juliet, a modern interpretation of William Shakespeare’s classic play. His romantic performance won the hearts of girls all across the nation, and he settled into his role as America’s heartthrob. In 1997 Leo took on his most swoon-worthy role yet, as Jack Dawson in Titanic. The film recounts the tragic sinking of the RMS Titanic in 1912. Leo played a poor artist that falls in love with one of the ship’s wealthier guests. Titanic was a box office success, becoming the highest grossing film of all time. Check out this clip of one of the most memorable moments from the film.

Big Screen Boss

Since Titanic Leo has continued to star in successful Hollywood films including Catch Me If You Can, Gangs of New York, The Aviator (for which he won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor), The Departed and Revolutionary Road, among others. In 2010 he took the world by storm with his performance in Inception, a movie about a man who manipulates other people’s dreams. What’s next for this Hollywood hunk? Leo has signed on to play Jay Gatsby in The Great Gatsby, based on the book by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It won’t be released until 2012 so you still have time to read the book!

Gossiping Leo

In May 2011 reports started to leak out that Leo had fallen for blonde bombshell Blake Lively, who plays Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl. The two have been captured all across the world, enjoying vacations to Disneyland, the French Riviera and other parts of Europe. Thier love didn't last and the two broke up in October 2011.
