Like the man he portrayed in The Aviator, the eccentric Howard Hughes, Leo had OCD as a child. “I had the thing where I would walk to school and have to walk, you know, go back a block because I didn’t step on a crack,” he told Katie Couric in 2004. “And I felt like something was going to go wrong if I didn’t do that.” But the star has been able to talk himself out of his obsessive urges: “I’m able to say at some point, ‘OK, you’re being ridiculous, stop stepping on every gum stain you see. You don’t need to do that.”

  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.
