Leonardo DiCaprio

Today we're celebrating the 37th birthday of three-time Academy Award nominee Leonardo DiCaprio. DiCaprio got his acting start on a number of television shows, but he made his feature film debut in the 1991 film, Critters 3. He made his first splash in 1993's What's Eating Gilbert Grape, which scored him his first Oscar nomination. From there DiCaprio landed lead roles in films like 1995's The Basketball Diaries and 1996's Romeo + Juliet, but it was James Cameron's Titanic in 1997 that truly put him on the map, making him a Hollywood heartthrob overnight. He rode that success until appearing in two films in 2002: Catch Me If You Can and Gangs of New York. He's continued to be one of Hollywood's go-to dramatic actors, and you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who wouldn't agree that he has talent. You'll next be able to see DiCaprio in Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar, which is being released today. So, for his birthday, I've listed my ten favorite of DiCaprio's roles from over the years. I hope you enjoy the videos I've supplied. Once again, happy birthday, Mr. DiCaprio!
