Walking Pork Chop Leo Diddy Caps
is still moaning about being too popular after Titanic …
Leonardo DiCaprio wanted to give up acting for a time after the hit movie “Titanic.”
DiCaprio was back to being considered a “another piece of cute meat” after the 1997 film’s spectacular box office success, an image he had wanted to get away after his days on the cover of teen magazines, he told Newsweek for editions on newsstands Monday. “It was pretty disheartening to be objectified like that. I wanted to stop acting for a little bit,” he said at the magazine’s Oscar panel discussion with other actors. “It changed my life in a lot of ways, but at the same time, I can’t say that it didn’t give me opportunities. It made me, for the first time, in control of my career.”
After many successful movies and critical acclaim, DiCaprio said he loves acting.
“There’s no other art form in the world that affects me more. There’s nothing that I walk away from feeling transformed by the way I do with cinema,” he said.
Poor Leo … thrown back to his days as floppy haired teen idol by the success of Titanic and still whining about it ten years later. He really didn’t need to worry for long about his days as “cute meat” they were very short indeed — as all the press coverage shortly after was about how tubby he was … fatty meat got a lot of good PR around the Atkins diet, but I don’t think Tiger Beat was ever promoting chubby chasing as an adolescent pastime.
While he seems to have yo-yo-ed up and down since the Titanic days – I have to say the cute meat seems to have finally settled on his swollen looking face. He always looks like an angry baby with a sort of Christian Slater toupee whacked on top. I suppose having to wear a Christian Slater toupee would anger most babies – but you get my general point. There may even have been teen-idol cheekbones there once – now it’s a sort of angry ferret face under… I guess all that objectification can get a brother down.
Still fat and sassy as he is DiCaprio really does seems to have his career sorted. Scorcese has clearly adopted him as a combination muse and leading man. After The Departed they are now slated to do a fourth picture together … this time a Teddy Roosevelt bio-pic … maybe that fat face is just a swelled head from all the prestige pics he’s racking up on his Scorcese rich resume.
