    Leo’s so close to his family; I think that’s why he stays levelheaded even though he has been a child star, he has a strong family network.

    I agree Jenny.

    I don’t know why but I was surprised to read that Leo’s grandmother and Aunt live in Germany. Where exactl is his fmaily originally from? Dicaprio sounds Italian.

    He’s half Italian half German. I remember from when i was obsessed with him (when i was 10, after Titanic came out) lol
    He’s really matured into a GREAT actor.
    My DAD loves him more than I do now lol.
    It’s so funny he’s like,”Leonardo Dicaprio is the greatest actor of our time.” lol, and see’s all his movies.
