Leonardo was named after Leonardo DaVinci when his German mother, Irmelin, felt her unborn baby kick while standing in front of a painting of the great artist at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. “My dad [Italian comic book artist George DiCaprio], being the man that picks up on cosmic messages, said that ‘His name must be Leonardo,'” says the actor.

  1. I don’t care if he’s hot or not or whether he’s a mama’s boy, he’s a brilliant actor. He’s not the type to play the same role over and over again. Blood diamonds, Aviator, The Departed — all such great performances.

  2. @girleegirl see I think it’s the other way around. As he is gettingolder he is getting better. He looked like such a baby for so long now he looks like a man. I love it! Don’t get me wrong I think he was freaking amazingly hot in Romeo and Juliet but him in The Departed was just as good if not better.
