Leonardo DiCaprio: From Child Actor to Hollywood Star

Born on November 11, 1974, Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio began his career in commercials at just 5 years old. 

In 1990, the young Los Angeles performer was hired to join the cast of the 1990 series Parenthood. He later worked on The New Lassie and Roseanne before making his big-screen debut in the horror film Critters 3 (1991).

His first big role would come a year later, in 1992, with the film This Boy's Life, directed and starring Robert De Niro. Although said work was not really popular, it did earn him recognition by the Hollywood industry, which quickly sought him out to play one of the main roles in the drama What's Eating Gilbert Grape? (1993), by Lasse Hallström. For that role, DiCaprio was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor!

Titanic and other great Leo hits

In 1997, Leonardo DiCaprio appeared in the blockbuster Titanic (1997), with which director James Cameron recounted the mythical story of the sinking of the RMS Titanic through the romance of a low-class young man and an English aristocrat (Kate Winslet).

The film was a great success, becoming the highest-grossing film of all time, and its actors were catapulted to the top of the film industry, where they have managed to stay until then.

After his work in the maritime epic, Leonardo DiCaprio was enshrined as one of the best actors of his generation thanks to his work in films like Catch Me If You Can (2002), The Aviator (2004), Blood Diamond (2006), Revolutionary Road (2008), Inception (2010) The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) and The Revenant (2015), for which he won the Oscar for Best Actor after 6 nominations.
