Movie stars don’t come any bigger than Leonardo DiCaprio. Unarguably most famous for his portrayal of the young dashing Jack in the epic romance, Titanic, the actor has featured in some of the most acclaimed movies of his generation. He has also garnered numerous accolades, including the elusive Oscar, and towers heads and shoulders above most of his peers. When the history of Hollywood is finally written, there is no doubt that his name will feature prominently. As of 2020, Leonardo Dicaprio’s net worth is $260 million

Leonardo DiCaprio’s Early Life 

Every great journey starts with a single step, and Leonardo DiCaprio’s is no different. The American actor was born Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio on the 11th of November 1974 in Los Angeles. He is 45 years old

Displaying a natural affinity for the arts, Leo logged his first stage performance, albeit an impromptu one, at the age of two. He subsequently landed a role in a children’s TV series, Romper Room, at the age of five before spending the next several years appearing in commercials and educational films. 

In the year 1991, a 17-year-old Leo landed a recurring role on the popular sitcom, Growing Pains. His stint on the show was short-lived but it fetched him some award nominations. It also led to roles in acclaimed movies such as This Boy’s Life and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993). Leo’s portrayal of a mentally-challenged boy in the latter film brought him critical praise as well as several awards. It also scored him his very first Oscar nomination, for the best supporting actor, at the age of 19.

Following a successful 1993, Leonardo DiCaprio’s career stalled as he found himself without many offers from major studios. His few acting gigs were mostly restricted to indie movies but he refused to be discouraged. He persevered and was soon rewarded with two career-defining roles. The first was his portrayal of Romeo in the 1996 film, Romeo + Juliet. The second was his starring role as Jack on the epic romance movie, Titanic. DiCaprio’s portrayal of Jack earned him several award nominations. It also launched him to unassailable international stardom which persists to this day.

What We Know About His Parents

Leonardo DiCaprio hails from a family of three. His mother is a former legal secretary named Irmelin (nee Indenbirken) while his father is a comic book distributor and performance artist named George DiCaprio. Leonardo DiCaprio’s mom is of German and Russian descent while his dad has German and Italian ancestry. The actor is quite proud of his heritage and openly acknowledges it. He is also fluent in both Italian and German languages. 

Meanwhile, DiCaprio’s parents commenced their relationship while they were both in college and moved out to L.A upon the completion of their studies. They subsequently tied the knot and welcomed their son in the year 1974. The couple sadly separated when Leo was just a year old and George moved out. To ensure that the divorce did not affect their son negatively, Leo’s parents made a pact that they would always live near each other. They kept to this promise for several years and as such, even though the actor mostly grew up with his mother, his dad was an active presence in his life. He maintains a close relationship with both parents and often takes them as his date to the major industry awards.

He also never fails to acknowledge the role that they played in his success story. In his acceptance speech at the 30th SAG awards where he was honored with the actor’s inspiration award, Leonardo DiCaprio revealed that it was his father that introduced him to some of Robert De Niro’s great films. He also disclosed that his dad assured him that he would always be proud of him irrespective of his being successful or not. The Titanic star ended his speech by stating that he would not be ‘the man, actor and philanthropist’ that he was today without his mom and dad.

There are few times in human history where voices are amplified at such pivotal moments and in such transformational ways – but @GretaThunberg has become a leader of our time. History will judge us for what we do today to help guarantee that future generations can enjoy the same livable planet that we have so clearly taken for granted. I hope that Greta’s message is a wake-up call to world leaders everywhere that the time for inaction is over. It is because of Greta, and young activists everywhere that I am optimistic about what the future holds. It was an honor to spend time with Greta. She and I have made a commitment to support one another, in hopes of securing a brighter future for our planet. #FridaysforFuture #ClimateStrike @fridaysforfuture
