Leonardo DiCaprio Wanted To Take Break After ‘Titanic’
Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio has admitted he wanted to stop acting in films for sometime after the huge success of his 1997 release, ‘Titanic’. According to the actor, after the role that he portrayed in the flick made him a ‘pretty boy’ in the eyes of the public which was not good for his career.
Leonardo DiCaprio quoted, "At first I hated the way I was turned into a pretty boy, as if that was all that was expected of me. It made me almost want to stop acting for a while because the attention that was focused on me was not where I wanted to take my career."
"I didn't want to do romantic films or anything which just exploited my image or appearance. I also kind of had to be more careful about the friends I was hanging out with. I was living a pretty big life for a while and then that just gets tiresome," he added.
The actor also revealed that he has stopped partying for quite a long time and leads a quite life now.
"You get all the partying out of your system, so I live much more quietly these days. I haven't done the nightclub scene in a long, long time. It's boring, to tell you the truth," he said.
