It's hard to believe that fresh-faced Leonardo DiCaprio's been on our screens for over 20 years. We take a look at his best moments: from child actor to Hollywood hunk
Born to a German mother and a Italian-German-American father, Leonardo (left with his older step-brother Adam Farrar) started acting in commecials at a young age. At 5 he was asked to leave the set of TV series Romper Room for being disruptive!
Leonardo DiCaprio had a few minor roles on TV, including an appearance in show Roseanne. At 15 he landed the role of young Mason Capwell in US soap Santa Barbara and a year later he started playing the character Gary Buckman in TV show Parenthood Pic: Photoshot
At 17 Leonardo landed a part in popular TV show 'Growing Pains'. He played Luke Brower, a homeless boy who moves in with the Seaver family.
'Growing Pains' put Leo on the map and he soon was offered films such as 'This Boy's Life' and more importantly 'What's Eating Gilbert Grapes' opposite Johnny Depp and Juliette Lewis. DiCaprio shone as Arnie Grape, was nominated for the Best Actor in a Supporting Role Oscar and bigger roles soon started pouring in...
DiCaprio, age 21 attends the premiere of 'Romeo and Juliet' - in which he starred as Romeo opposite Claire Danes' Juliet - with a girlfriend. The same year the actor played Hank in drama 'Marvin's Room' but his big role was yet to come...
Leonardo DiCaprio landed the role of Jack Dawson in hugely successful drama 'Titanic', co-starring Kate Winslet and Billy Zane. 'Titanic' became the highest grossing film of all time until another film directed by James Cameron took the number 1 spot: Avatar in 2009
Leonardo DiCaprio poses for a photo with his mum Irmelin Indenbirken and grandmother Helena. Leonardo's mum has always been supportive of her son's acting career.
Leonardo Di Caprio met his model girlfriend Gisele Bundchen in 2001 but sadly the relationship wasn't to last...
Leonardo DiCaprio and girlfriend Gisele Bundchen dated until 2005 before deciding to go their own way. At the time it was said that the Brazilian supermodel was keen to get married whilst DiCaprio was not ready for the commitment yet...
Leonardo DiCaprio's love life was on the rocks in 2005, but his professional one certainly wasn't. The actor won a Best Performance by an Actor Golden Globe for his portrayal of Howard Hughes in the film 'The Aviator'. He also received his second Oscar nomination but didn't win
DiCaprio met Israeli model Bar Refaeli soon after splitting from Gisele Bundchen in 2005. The pair met at a party in honour of band U2 in Las Vegas. They split up in mid 2011.
DiCaprio was reunited with his 'Titanic' co-star Kate Winslet in 2008 when they filmed 'Revolutionary Road' together. The film was directed by Winslet's then husband, Sam Mendes
It was more blockbusters for DiCaprio after 'Revolutionary Road'. The actor starred in 'Shutter Island' and 'Inception'. 'Inception' had a truly star-studded cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Cillian Murphy, Marion Cotillard and Michael Caine.
It's hard to believe that youthful looking Leonardo is 37! His star getting brighter and brighter too. The actor is working on several high profile films, including the much awaited 'The Great Gatsby' in which he plays Jay Gatsby, 'Django Unchained', 'Creed of Violence' and Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street'. DiCaprio also has a new woman in his life, model Erin Heatherton
