Leonardo DiCaprio Covers 'GQ' October 2011

Leonardo DiCaprio takes the cover of GQ‘s October issue.

Here’s what the 36-year-old J. Edgar star had to share with the mag:

On if he has any interest in directing: “Yeah, I do. And if I did direct, I would try to have the same no-bulls— approach to it as [Clint Eastwood] and his crew have. Seriously, there are no frills on his set. It’s a small, tight-knit crew.”

On which movie he’s proud of: “The Aviator. I’d wanted to play Howard Hughes for 10 years and was around for multiple rewrites. Michael Mann was on it at one point. And finally [Martin] Scorsese got involved. I was very proud of that movie. It was the first film where I felt inherently like a partner.”

On a movie he originally passed on, then changed his mind: “My father has always been a huge force with me. I had passed on a script about the French poet Arthur Rimbaud [Total Eclipse]. He explained to me that Rimbaud was the James Dean of his time … I did the movie, and I loved playing him. If I just waited for moments of ‘I have to do this,’ I would do a movie only every four or five years.”

    Who do you think you are, running round leaving scars
    Collecting your jar of hearts, and tearing love apart
    You’re gonna catch a cold from the ice inside your soul
    So don’t come back for me, don’t come back at all

  • Algren

    I wish he would do more movies. Aside from J. Edgar and The Great Gatsby, he currently has 19 projects in various stages of development but he only does one movie a year.

  • Simon Pigg

    Leonardo DiCaprio is a good actor and seems like a decent guy but he needs to grow up and find someone around his own age to settle down with who can give him the kick in the balls he needs such as Winona Ryder, Melissa George, Cameron Diaz, Denise Richards, Kristen Wiig, Sandra Bullock, Neve Campbell, etc.

    I must say Leo is absolutely amazing, plus just looking at him, to me, just shows how he’s genuinely passionate about acting. I just love his acting ability, very inspiring to watch it :)

    @Bar Refaeli: don’t hate because Bar can’t even get an American magazine cover.

  • Cammie

    I like his eyes, but I don’t like the way they styled his hair on the cover…

  • let the music play

    Leo, is like fine wine getter better with the passing of time, thanks, Jared !


    *O* Why the surprise? This man will always be beautiful no matter what age. YUMMY! Leo, get in my bed.

  • Josephine

    I absolutely love Leo!!!!! I think he is one of the best actors out there. He should’ve won many awards. Wonder why he hasn’t yet. That’s BS!

    Next issue, please put Adam Lambert on! He is another hot one!

  • let the music play

    Leo is like fine wine only getting better with time, thanks, Jared !

  • toodles

    don’t really care for the girl he’s dating, but i love me some leo.

  • Jory

    Very handsome, love his acting he’s so passionate and out there for every character

  • ellie’

    Leo is the best actor of our generation, hands down. Just the way he moves,speaks,mannerisms in all his films, just wow. I can watch him forever.

    @Bar Refaeli:

    isn it time for you to call the razzi again?

    leo’s here

    razzi run

    ok he’s not

    but im here

    take my picture

  • ha
  • gela

    @Simon Pigg: You are back with the same comment over and over. You get boring every time. Change your vocabulary at least.


    I do believe Barf and Lukas were not great friends, when she was dating Leo. So, what’s up? Also, why the hell is she still wearing the LOVE RING. I think LD and Barf are playing with public minds. Is that a GOOD decision, Leo? If this is true, just watch the box office backlash. I think we need to hear from you.


    ooops… sorry. This is in response to Barf’s post here:

  • sos

    That was weird I could see these pics but not the post?WOW looking good LD.Love that second pic.I hope we get a trailer for J Edgar soon.LOL!At the cover,”Horny?finally there’s an app for that”right on Leo’s shoulder.GQ knows….

  • Hmmm…

    @HYPOCRITE: Why are you so worked up? Partying in a club doesn`t mean they are `great friends` now. Lukas was seen with Gisele as well in NYC and it didn`t seem they were so `great friends` while Leo dated Gisele. Take it easy! Just be happy that Bar is gone. Too bad Leo managed to downgrade even from Bar… Who would have thought it can be done? But Leo did it!

  • sally

    @HYPOCRITE: Oh yeah, the public care about Leo and bar relationship so they go against the movie. You sounds like a 4 year old girl who just lost her eye contact. Moron. lol By the way, the movie is not a box office film. Just little heads up before you come her and scream to say i told you so. Then again, you are really a 4 years who doesn’t know these things. Stick on watching like “I don’t how she does it” movies these weekend, that will be up to your speed. LOL

  • k

    amazing love him!

  • LondonCalling

    his face is perfection.

  • http://ada slig o lambert ^_____^cute

    thanks jared for post. Leonardo so handsome ^^

  • ka simply amazing

    he really looking good! Sooo handsome :D

  • Joanne

    Why would there be a Box office backlash if he dated Bar again, he was with her last yr and Shutter Island/Inception did well at the Boxoffice…People don’t care who dates that much.

    Truthfully I would rather see him with Bar then Plastic Sugery Queen, aleast there would be less media attention. Eventhough I don’t care much for Bar either.

    But she is lesser of the 2 evils..

  • MarilynandtheDiamonds


  • rose

    Leonardo is beautiful and a wonderful actor. Just love him.

  • Halli

    Nice photoshop and angles there GQ.
    Trying to make Leo look like James Dean instead of the fat headed toad face he now has.

  • Zazz

    Leo looks fine … but he’d be hotter if he dated women closer to his age.

  • raven

    @sos: Yeah he looks good in these pics. His eyes really stand out in the cover pic.

  • Back off Blake Lively!

    This one’s all mine! LOL!

  • Amused Aussie

    bahahaha- this from dlisted blind items is too funny:

    Which married big-screen tough guy has let slip his fascination with transsexual porn stars? The actor – currently going through some bumpy issues with his famous wife – was overheard at a party discussing his attraction to a certain famous she-male! (National Enquirer via Blind Gossip)

    Bumpy famous wife = Jennifer Garner = Ben Affleck? So many Blake Lively jokes, so little time

  • Amused Aussie

    and there is also a strong rumour that when Gatsby finishes filming at fox studios- that badley coopers next movie will be filmed there- Paradise something or other…..

  • YourBigFatAss

    close your eyes and just listen to the dialogue , he sounds the same in most every role, and that is silly and disturbing ! there are plenty of actors in hollywood can’t they use someone else other than the same old people over and over again ? ruins film for me, sorry goofs !

  • Abigail

    HE is an actor. A person who has the real passion for acting. A person who wouldn’t make rubbish movie just for the sake of owning a Rolls Royce to drive around and show off. And PS, he’s the only actor whom I find sexy even though he doesn’t have a massive killer body.

  • raven

    Gee, Why am I getting a thumbs down for my post to sos? I didn’t say anything offensive.

    @Amused Aussie: LOL at the blind item.

  • Elena

    @raven: eh, just the bellafreaks or blaketards doing what they do.

  • Team SM

    So damn sexy. Really has aged well

  • Condessa

    @Elena: LOL, “blaketards”.

  • Elena

    @Condessa: haha, well it seemed like an apt descriptor (not to say that all fans of blake are idiots, just the ones that have been posting on these threads lately).

  • Elena

    @Condessa: haha, well it seemed like an apt descriptor (not to say that all blake fans are idiots, just the ones who have been invading these posts as of late).

  • TheTruthIs

    He needs to work out his arms a bit to get some definition. Too plump on this picture…
