Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio (born November 11, 1974) is an American actor and film producer. DiCaprio began his career by appearing in television commercials in the early 1990s, after which he had recurring roles in various television series such as the soap opera Santa Barbara and the sitcom Growing Pains. In 1993, he began his film career by starring as Josh in Critters 3 (1991). He starred in the film adaptation of the memoir This Boy’s Life (1993), and was praised for his supporting role in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993). He gained public recognition with leading roles in The Basketball Diaries (1995) and the romantic drama Romeo + Juliet (1996), before achieving international fame with James Cameron’s epic romance Titanic (1997), which became the highest-grossing film of all time until Cameron’s science fiction film Avatar (2009) overtook it.

Since 2000, DiCaprio has received critical acclaim for his work in a wide range of film genres. DiCaprio’s subsequent films include The Man in the Iron Mask (1998), the biographical crime drama Catch Me If You Can (2002), and the epic historical drama Gangs of New York (2002), which marked his first of many collaborations with director, Martin Scorsese. He was acclaimed for his performances in the political war thriller Blood Diamond (2006), the neo-noir crime drama The Departed (2006), the espionage thriller Body of Lies (2008), the drama Revolutionary Road (2008), the psychological thriller Shutter Island (2010), the science fiction thriller Inception (2010), the biographical film J.

Alice DarbyLove these ppl! I'm convinced one of our best strategies is to buy up as much land as possible around the world. Ted Turner used to be one of the largest landowners here and abroad. Wonder if we can buy some vital land in Indo? Naturally indigenous people would be stakeholders. You could pull this off Leo with crowdfunding. Food for thought honey. But you're doing great! Keeping it positive and moving ahead🌏😎

Ji NoI was following with much interest what Doug Tompkins and his wive were doing for years. I wasn't aware that he passed away. Very sad to hear. They are a big inspiration, to all environmentalists.

April CloseWonderful. If everyone who has more money than they could ever use would just use some of it to help the planet they would be doing something worth remembering them for.

Chad LeinenWe're still screwed. You're not saving anything your just delaying the death sentence. The real battle is within the minds and hearts of human beings. I profoundly respect your efforts and this fight does need to be fought. But who is responsible for setting the tactics and angles to combat the root cause of our problem? That's who I want to talk to. Does such a person even exist?

Valeria Pérez ValenzuelaMe siento enormemente emocionada por esta ayuda a preservar especies en nuestro territorio, que constituyen patrimonio para nuestros pueblos originarios, que hasta hoy en la actualidad luchan por defender la madre tierra...Desde la educación estamos intentando que nuestros niños y jóvenes comprendan la importancia que tiene el planeta y sus recursos, el cuidado que debemos tener con ello...Y bueno! Como bien lo dijo Malala en su discurso, podemos cambiar el mundo con un niño, un maestro, un libro y un lápiz...Gracias totales!!!!

Nathalie Tachetwe need more if these actions with parks and protected areas. we need space for nature, space for animals and space for us. The conservation work to preserve life has became harder and has to be honored. It is always a great news to see such actions, there is still hope and still lots to do. Thanks to LDC foundation and its partner for the preserving of our beautiful lands. If I could I would buy some acres of land to be protected. We need nature, we need the trees for our lives and souls. 🐝🕷🌳🌱 let's all keep it up!

Brigitte PoischenGood decision! A little bit of paradise, this side of Paradise. All of nature could and should look that way... Wishing you a peaceful week. May God bless you. (Most folks think that it is good to be rich, or powerful, or important, but it is much more important to be good - and to do the right thing!)
