Leonardo DiCaprio Reveals If He Would Have Kids One Day

Leonardo DiCaprio Reveals If He Would Have Kids One Day

Leonardo DiCaprio gives a smoldering stare on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine’s new issue.

Here’s what the 41-year-old Golden Globe winner had to share with the mag:

On if he wants a family: “Do you mean do I want to bring children into a world like this? If it happens, it happens. I’d prefer not to get into specifics about it, just because then it becomes something that is misquoted. But yeah. I don’t know. To articulate how I feel about it is just gonna be misunderstood.”

On the darkness of The Revenant: “[I] would love to do something even darker [than The Revenant]. I don’t know, like how would you penetrate the mind of somebody like Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver? There’s a word in German … schadenfreude. It means humiliation for somebody else, and it can be done in movies, like when Bickle takes [Cybill Shepherd] to the porno theater for his first date. You’re like, ‘Oh, God, please don’t do this!’”

On the planet: “There’s no way we’re not hypocrites about this, and there isn’t a couple of hours a day that I’m not thinking about it. The big question is, is it all too late?”

    He seems not to be very convinced about having kids

  • Hello=)

    He seems to want them but the same old “it will happen when it happens” thing. He has said many interviews that he will tell it to his kids one day, among other things.

    It’s never too late. Don’t court disaster, keep doing what you’re doing. Eventually others will too. Be the change you wish to see.

    Great film, by the way.

    Loving all the Leo posts!

  • Soph

    Loving all the Leo posts!

  • also…

    Schadenfreude? I don’t speak German but I remember that word from the Toni times… That that’s her favorite word!

  • lalaland

    he should marry that sentence and have 2 to 4 kiods with it.
    bbut he is right about misquotations. so true.

  • girl93

    Really?

  • Hello=)

    I agree, I don’t think he wants to be misquoted. I don’t think he doesn’t want any kids, but that he sees it for himself in the future but just doesn’t know when or how it will happen. In other words I don’t think he is actively looking for a women so he can have kids. If he gets her pregnant than hes OK with that LOL

  • also…

    Yep!!!!

  • Guess

    The man gets tired of being asked the same question about kids. I agree it will happen when it happens. You can’t always predict. He is also correct things would be misquoted.

  • lalaland

    true thing. but it may come from his mama.the brave german woman.

  • Hello=)

    I remember that! Toni said it was her favorite word, her humor was kind of sarcastic.

  • Guess

    Hi, what does that mean?

  • lalaland

    my sister said the same things. thats his answer is smart and true. you cant predict those things.

  • Hello=)

    I agree. Hes said time and time again he wants children, just he will get the girl pregnant and it will happen when everything falls right into place at the right time.

  • lalaland

    is that me or he seems more guard than ever on babies and marriage.

  • girl93

    what do you mean with guard?

  • Hello=)

    Well they keep asking him the same question over and over again. It will happen when it will happen and it hasn’t happened yet.

  • lalaland

    pleasure derived by someone from another person’s misfortune

    thx google.

  • Guess

    Yeap, probably thanks to the I don’t need a bra and Toni’s interview about wanting lots of kids.

  • Guess

    Thanks. Don’t think I like the sound of that.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GerrysFascinatingWoman

    Most children who were unhappy seldom have kids. And he doesn’t seem to want to put down roots but to save them, I appreciate that more.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GerrysFascinatingWoman

    Guarded. He’s just not that into it. He knows if he says anything it’ll be taken out of context. Context means a great deal to him. Respect that.

  • lalaland

    i dont know. he s more shy than ever in his lattest interview. like he s holding back.
    i hope he doesnt give up on love and family. sad but somehow he s public person that stuff always back fire. he is probably right to keep his mouth shut.

  • McAwesome

    Hi, he already mentioned this during the radio interview with q-tip. And I think he should ask his mom again about the meaning, lol. Like lala said: Schaden = Damage, and Freude = joy/plessure.
    It’s really to make fun of someone if he falls or something (not making fun if someone has a car accident of course, but those little ‘funny’ things)

  • AzureRose

    That’s really interesting, a new thought added to the usual formula: ““Do you mean do I want to bring children INTO A WORLD LIKE THIS?

  • lalaland

    as if his children would suffer from global warming or starvation or any other thing that touch the poor…
    SMH

  • Shelly

    What’s wrong with this world Leo? Your hot ass is in it. It’s all Gooood!!!!!!! :D

  • Soph

    That’s what I took from this particular answer. It seems like he’s implying that the world won’t be an ideal place for children in the future with the rate we’re going, and I agree.

  • lalaland

    saddistic indeed. i dont like it either.

  • lalaland

    lol

  • Hello=)

    I think he wanted to enforce his concern with Global Warming, though I doubt global warming will actually be a reason he won’t have kids.

  • Soph

    Yup. I agree. He wanted to bring up a point about the future, not necessarily that HIS children will be affected if he has some.

  • Hello=)

    Exactly.

  • lalaland

    leo is obsessed with global warming.
    if/when ezrth shut down his great great great great…children will b dead and buried. so no pb really.

  • AzureRose

    He seems to imply something more than global warming when he says ‘into a world LIKE THIS’.

  • Hello=)

    I think he knows his children wouldn’t be directly majorly affected but hes just trying to raise his point and his concern.

  • lalaland

    you’re right.

    its all very substile. remember when he implies kr was off for him because she didnnt believe in global warming.

  • lalaland

    you’re right.

    its all very substile. remember when he implies kr was off for him because she didnnt believe in global warming.

    I need to buy this magazine.

  • Tigerlilly

    This cover is literally to die for, omg!!! What a sexy motherf*cker. I need a cold shower right now to calm down *unf*

  • Tigerlilly

    I’m by your side, girl!

  • also…

    He has the same exact strategy when it comes to these questions ( marriage, kids ). He is not giving a straight answer, he gives you an open ending. If it happens it happens. Same strategy with different elements ( bringing kids to this world is a new element ). He is not saying straight out like Clooney did back then. He is good at selling his movies and his image ( the mature and serious side of his image not the immature frat boy part ). He says what needs to be said.

  • Tigerlilly

    Well he haven’t even met a woman he could have kids with, so what do you expect? He can’t plan such things alone.

  • also…

    Does it seem like he is looking for a woman to have kids with and be in a serious relationship? If you aren’t looking and you aren’t open to meet someone like that…then you won’t meet her.

  • AK

    i think he probably prefers adopting a child over having his own :) this world is a mess and there are a lot of children who need a family ..

  • Tigerlilly

    He’s 41. He has still a lot of time. And there are people who would say if you’re searching your true one love you’ll never find her or him. It just happens when you least expect it.
