Biography

American actor, lead in a film that was the most outstanding commercial and popular success of all times, "Titanic." The film won Oscars across the board on 3/23/1998, Los Angeles, CA, and while DiCaprio did not pick up any of the awards himself, he was without a doubt the king-of-the-world with the sweeping acclaim.

His parents manage his career, though divorced from the time he was a baby. His mom worked as a legal secretary and he spent a lot of time with his dad, who distributed underground literature. He lived with his mom until 1995, when he bought his own place. He signed with an agent at 14 and played his first role on TV in 1991 in "Growing Pains." His portrayal of a retarded boy in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" earned him an Oscar nomination. He also played in "This Boy's Life," "The Basketball Diaries," "The Quick and the Dead," and in 1996, "Romeo and Juliet," all before he was 21.

An instinctual, skilled actor, he began to feel his way though the mine field of super stardom in 1998, having a ball with the media, finding beautiful women available, and making the club scene, tossing back absolute and smoking expensive cigars. For sport, he races all-terrain vehicles, skydives and bungee jumps. In 1997 he ended a 15-month romance with L.A. model Kristin Zang.

His success sparked not only female adulation but four books written about him and more than 500 Web sites for fans hungry to know every morsel about his daily breathing in and breathing out.

On January 30, 2005, at the ripe old age of 30, he was awarded a Lifetime Achievement award at the Santa Barbara, California's International Film Festival. The award was a result of the critical acclaim he enjoyed for his portrayal of Howard Hughes in Martin Scorsese's film, "The Aviator."
