Leonardo DiCaprio Explains Why He Doesn't Do Sequels

Leonardo DiCaprio is opening up about why he hasn’t done a sequel in his adult acting career and why you shouldn’t expect him to do one anytime soon.

“To me, every movie that I’ve done has been its own piece of individual art,” the 41-year-old The Revenant actor told Variety. “That’s not to say I wouldn’t do something that has sequels. Some of the greatest movies in the world — The Godfather — have had sequels. The Godfather 2 is fantastic.”

“You read a script, it’s got a beginning and an end. It’s hard to envision that being resurrected again. It just hasn’t happened,” Leo added.

Leo was reportedly on studio wish lists to play the roles of Spider-Man, Anakin Skywalker, and Robin.

The only sequel that Leo has appeared in was a horror movie called Critters 3, which was released when he was just 17 years old.

    Hi, where’s the location?

  • hmhey

    i assume is probably la/beverly hills?

  • Barry

    Well, he dies at the end of so many of his movies that it would be difficult to comeback.

  • ####

    I would assume LA somewhere but I couldn’t figure out where she works. It might be an Italian place.

  • lala

    I think Leonardo Dicaprio has done a great job of picking films to be in during his career. Most of his movies have been pretty good and he is of course a great actor.
    He doesn’t seem to be a franchise type actor and I don’t think he’d fit in a franchise film.

    I can see him doing one like the Bourne series.

  • Revengefan0101

    LOL. This is true. Any psychiatrists here who would like to explain why Leo is drawn to characters who wind up dying at the end of the movie?

    Hi ladies! Seems like Leo has been pretty quiet the last few days! Hopefully, he’s actually giving his body a rest after all the travelling and partying his done the last few weeks – lol!
    Does anyone have any idea when the premiere starts tomorrow? I’ve been looking everywhere! Depending on the time, I might check it out!

  • AzureRose

    Look at most of his movie women and his relationship with them indeed….. THOSE relationship would be Freud’s psychiatric dream.

  • Fan Girl

    I bet Leo ‘secretly’ has a thing for hot/pretty black girls.

  • AzureRose

    Oh, my….. Noooooo!!!!

  • Charade

    Ummm a premiere with all the people and photographers screaming, the chaos has to be pretty confusing and scary if you’re just 7 years-old. Wouldn’t take him there if he was my son

    TheRevenant ‏@RevenantMovie
    Tune in tomorrow at 6:30pm PT to the World Premiere of #TheRevenant. Follow along for exclusive coverage.

  • kipty

    Lol I don’t think so. But this is a nice picture.😊

  • Guess

    How would you know?? He has dated Naomi Campbell and pic with Quincy Jones’ daughter when I believe they dated briefly. I’m just saying you never know. Leo loves beautiful women, period.

  • Guess

    Maybe would be refreshing for him and his relationships than the same old wanna be famous bleached skinny blondes 😊

  • CourtneyBettyEricLee

    People keep using that ONE picture from the Bar years as ‘proof’ of Leo secretly loving black girls. That same picture is repeated over and over. I’m black, and I find it desperate to be honest.

  • Dream Girl

    Maybe he does, but he prefers blondes.

  • Dream Girl

    Maybe if Leo ever gets married then we will know for sure.

  • kipty

    Lol I think we would have seen a few in his groupie entourage by now if so. There are none. Just my opinion, but he’s entitled to his taste. I think he and Naomi are just friends. ETA: Kidada’s mother is a blonde white woman and she’s very fair skinned as a result.

  • kipty

    Yes, I remember. I thought it was silly. I’m sure he appreciates a beautiful woman period but you’d have to be blind not to see that he has a preference for white European models, preferably blonde. Tbh, if he were attracted to a black woman I think she’d have to have some admixture.

  • Guess

    Again, you don’t know if they would need to be mixed. Sorry, that really sounded awful to say that you would think the black woman would need to be mixed. You are entitled to your opinion.

  • CourtneyBettyEricLee

    I see what you mean and I agree, the same way he prefers blondes over all. But the debate is just so embarrassing in my opinion, especially since it seems to be a one sided desire/hope more then anything.

    Yeah Leo and Naomi are definitely friends but they had an affair, or were dating for a short time, in the 90s

  • Guess

    Hi, we keep flagging hoping this will stop. Please flagged.

  • Shelly

    Wow…….. what a pic! I never seen either. Great find girl! :)
