My all time favorite, Leonardo Dicaprio is on the cover of GQ’s October issue, and boy, is he making a statement! The actor, along with his gorgeous assets, kept it handsome as always in a white T and black peacoat.
Inside the magazine, Leo teamed up with his J. Edgar director Clint Eastwood for an interview, sharing a little bit about blockbuster movies, family and politics. Hmm…what about his romance with Blake Lively?!
“Throughout my career, I never knew which movies of mine made money and which didn’t. When Titanic came out, people would say, ‘Do you realize what a success this is?’ And I’d say, ‘Yeah, yeah, it’s a hit.’ The [money] stuff never mattered to me until I was into my thirties and got interested in producing . . . But even now I say that unless you want to prove that you can carry a film with your name, continuously trying to achieve box-office success is a dead end.”
Other than being the perfect gentleman in everyway possible, Leo has also kept close to the family throughout his career.
“My father has always been a huge force with me. I had passed on a script about the French poet Arthur Rimbaud [Total Eclipse]. He explained to me that Rimbaud was the James Dean of his time—a radical who took on the institution of poetry and turned it upside down. I did the movie, and I loved playing him. If I just waited for moments of I have to do this, I would do a movie only every four or five years.”
Well thank God that isn’t happening!
Other than J. Edgar being released on November 9th, Leo has also been working on Australian set of The Great Gatsby alongside Tobey Maguire, Isla Fisher and Carey Mulligan.
