It’s been a huge year for Golden Globe winner Leonardo DiCaprio. The 38-year-old actor has worked hard, filming three movies back-to-back. And fresh off the success of his film Django Unchained, Leo is preparing for the release of The Great Gatsby and The Wolf Of Wall Street.
Now, Leo says he’s ready for a break, and rightfully so!
“To me, right now it’s about getting a little breather–getting some time off,” he said. “Not a permanent break or not an indefinite period, but you know, just a few month off to do some other things.”
He hasn’t let the magnitude of his success go to his head either. In an interview with US Weekly, the 38-year-old was sure to acknowledge that while he’s looking forward to taking some time for himself, he hasn’t forgotten how fortunate he is to have well…the coolest job ever!
“I have absolutely nothing to complain about,” he says. “There’s a certain pride to everything, but every time I listen to myself talk about those prices I get sick to my stomach because I’m so fortunate to do what I do. Really, I’m a lucky person.”
DiCaprio, who is currently single, also opened up about his love life and may just be looking for a lucky lady to share his success with, though he’s not forcing anything.
“I take it as it comes,” he told Extra. “We’ll see what happens in the future. I don’t try to determine what the future will be. I take it day by day.”
Leo, call us!
