Book Description

It was only the beginning when Leonardo DiCaprio stood astride the bow in Titanic – the movie that would go on to smash all records, raking in a whopping £1.1 billion worldwide. Now, Leo has rocketed to become the highest paid actor in the world, earning an estimated £50 million in 2011 alone. And his position looks set to be secure for some time to come as the release of a new 3D version of James Cameron’s epic heralds another sensational year in the life of Hollywood’s hottest talent, that will also see him take on the lead role in a new adaptation of The Great Gatsby and see him cast as a villain in Quentin Tarantino’s new blockbuster Django Unchained. It’s a far cry from the heart-throb’s humble beginnings when he had to scrape for parts in TV commercials and soap operas before his eye catching performance in Baz Luhrmann’s stylish Romeo + Juliet. Cementing his reputation with captivating performances in films like Catch Me If You Can and The Departed, DiCaprio won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Howard Hughes in The Aviator. A keen environmentalist and conservationist, he has given millions to good causes around the globe and has never been shy about wearing his political ideals on his sleeve. Yet, although he’s spent over 15 years at the top of his profession, Leonardo remains something of an enigma. He has famously dated some of the world’s most beautiful women but seems no nearer to settling down and his often daring movie choices suggest someone still striving for perfection despite his stunning successes. Leonardo: The Biography charts DiCaprio’s meteoric rise to fame and delves beneath his polished Hollywood image to examine just what makes him tick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Biog of Leonardo DiCaprio 19 April 2012
This is a must have for any Leonardo fan who wants a bang up to date biography of the actor.
It's a fantastic read and gives a great insight into his incredible career which has spanned 20 years.
There's a lot more depth to him than the usual Hollywood actors who choose obvious film roles. He has worked hard to build up an impressive and varied portfolio of roles and it's been fascinating to read more about these. With Titanic back in the cinemas this is a good time to become reacquainted with who I think is one of the most talented actors of his generation.

The author of this book obviously knows his stuff about Leo! This is a fantastic up to date biography of the man himself, Leonardo DiCaprio. Well written, informative and interesting - definitely one I will be recommending to other fans.

I bought this book as I love Leonardo Dicaprio! He is my favourite actor by far and in my opinion all his films are fantastic (especially Shutter Island and The Aviator, both which he should have got Oscars for!!) Fantastic book, packed with information about the actor, is very up-to-date.The author Douglas Wight certainly knows his stuff when it comes to Dicaprio!
Also packed full of pictures of him, (looking gorgeous as ever!!)
Would recommend to anyone who is a Dicaprio fan!! :)
