Leonardo DiCaprio Covers Parade

Leonardo DiCaprio Covers Parade

Leonardo DiCaprio is featured in the latest issue of Parade. The 33-year-old opens up about being after love, wanting to get married and having kids some day. Here’s what Leo shared:

On why he became an actor: “My parents never tried to steer me in any direction. I wanted to be an actor, but I never thought it was a real possibility, ever. I thought I’d be a marine biologist, because nature and evolution fascinated me… We’re all after love, aren’t we? Love is what people are hungry for. That’s absolutely why I became an actor.”

On his career skyrocketing: “I am proud to have been in Titanic. I’m grateful for the possibilities it’s given me. If it hadn’t been for that movie, I wouldn’t have been able to take control of my career. It was during that time that I started to think about things that meant more to the world than this glorified, superficial media exposure of me, something I never felt was justified.”

On finding love in his life: “What I definitely feel a need for is to make my life about more than just my career. Just last night I was thinking to myself how little of my life has been lived normally and not spent on some far-off movie location. I want to get married and have children. In saying that, I realize I am contradicting everything I’ve said before. I absolutely believe in marriage.”

On looking to the future: “I hope I never get cynical. I think you need youthful energy, excitement, and optimism in life. There is a lot I want to do, and the more cynical you become, the more you sit on your butt and do nothing. The one thing that I would love is to never become cynical about the things I think are really important, like family, like the environment. (smiles) What I want is to be known as someone who stood for something.”

Read the full (and revealing) interview at Leo‘s new movie, Body of Lies, co-starring Russell Crowe opens Oct. 10.

wow, nice photos and interview – he is very articulate and I love his comments about not being cynical and doing something meaningful. He’s sexy and more importantly, a fantastic actor!

He looks and sounds great. Very Errol Flynnish! (if anyone reading this remembers…I’m only 50 and I’m hot!).

Absolutely cool!

Revolutionary Road looks sort of boring based on the preview. But I’ll see what the reviews say about it first.

he always takes my breath away!!!

My God, Leo’s it’s better and better, He’s an adorable person, looks mature and intelligent man and an amazing actor. I have proud of him, and I love hear that he wants his family, so cute and handsome as ever, I just love him!!!
