He is my favorite because no matter what role he plays, it is believable. There is not one movie of his that I did not like, and I have seen all of them. I have been a fan of his since his Growing Pains days and I have seen him transition to a fine young actor. Not only is he a great actor but he also is a big on environmental and humanitarian causes. In 2010, Leonardo donated over 1,000,000 to earthquake relief efforts. Also that same year, he donated another 1,000,000 to Wildlife Conservation society. I like actors that donate their money to good causes instead of wasting it on drugs and alcohol. He is a good role model for those who want to pursue acting.
Leonardo's first publicity shot was about milk. He often plays the hard-edged anti-hero roles or someone who has suffered a great loss.

He often appears in Martin Scorsese films. He has an intense emotional acting style.

He has won 10 Golden Globe Awards and he is known for never winning an Oscar.

The Leonardo DiCaprio foundation is dedicated to protecting Earth's wild places and commits 3 million to Oceana to protect sharks, marine animals, and habitat in the Pacific and Arctic Oceans.

The best thing about acting is that I get to lose myself in another character and actually get paid for it. It's a great outlet. As for myself, I'm not sure who I am. It seems that I change every day.
