Leonardo DiCaprio: Hollywood’s enfant prodige turns 48

Leonardo DiCaprio, born in 1974, was born 48 years ago in Los Angeles, California, and is considered one of Hollywood’s most famous actors and producers. Since his debut, DiCaprio has become an idol for the generation of the time, but not only. The girls and boys of the 90s loved him, who among you didn’t studded his teenage bedroom with a poster of DiCaprio? Speaking instead of style evolution, in the early years of his career Leonardo DiCaprio wore easy looks, sweatshirts, denim jackets, caps and total denim looks. Today, at almost fifty years of age, he shines on red carpets all over the world in tailored evening gowns.

Leo has been one of our greatest loves for 30 years now, but have you ever wondered why we still like him so much? Almost four decades lived between a myriad of films, the environmental cause and a timeless beauty, we celebrate him on his birthday by looking back over his career and most successful films.

Today, Leonardo DiCaprio finally received his coveted Academy Award for his role in The Revenant (2015), the film directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu in which he played a fur trapper seeking revenge after his companions kill his son. DiCaprio’s career began in 1992, however, when he starred with Robert De Niro in This Boy’s Life (1993). The following year, for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993), he received his first Oscar nomination for Best Actor. Other independent films followed, among them Total Eclipse (1995), centred on poet Arthur Rimbaud’s homosexual relationship with Paul Verlaine.

From the mid-1990s onwards, DiCaprio would conquer an increasingly wide audience with various successful films. We loved him in Romeo x Juliet (1996), the film based on William Shakespeare’s novel directed by Baz Luhrmann, but especially in James Cameron’s Titanic (1997). His Jack Dawson and Kate Winslet as Rose DeWitt helped make this film an incredible success.


In the decade 2000-2010 DiCaprio starred in films such as Danny Boyle’s The Beach (2000), Gangs of New York (2003), The Aviator (2004) and Shutter Island (2010) directed by Martin Scorsese, then in 2006 Edward Zwick’s Blood Diamond. In the last ten years Leo has starred in films such as Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained (2012), in 2013 he starred in Luhrmann’s lavish adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby, and the following year came Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street.
