He is by far one of the best actors we have out there, you have to admit, he has given us some wonderful movies. His breakthrough was his role in James Cameron’s Titanic, and that movie was the movie with the highest gross return from 1997 to 2009 when Avatar took his place, that’s 12 years!
Since then he has starred in a number of films that have established him as a force to be reckoned with in show business.
He has won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama, Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, the British Academy Film Award for Best Actor and, after being nominated for 6 Academy Awards in 2016, the Academy Award for Best Actor for The Revenant. DiCaprio is also an environmentalist and philanthropist.
As much as we love to go on and on… and on and on about the many badges he’s earned throughout his career, the subject is a very different one. It’s time to dig up everything in the actor statistics, starting with Leonardo DiCaprio’s greatness.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s height
How big do you think it is at first sight? We all know that there are people who are vertically challenged but still have that ‘big view’ and vice versa. We have here a case of ‘the other way round’, and we are not the only ones who have noticed this.
While he was talking about his greatness, Leo said, “That’s the most important thing that people keep saying to me: ‘Wow! You are much taller than I thought… They probably have the idea that most actors are gnomes or something. Leonardo DiCaprio has obviously been ridiculed by the gods of high places.
He’s 6 feet tall, and here are some celebrities who share Leonardo DiCaprio’s height. There’s Chad Michael Murray, Val Kilmer, and Criss Angel. Despite the fact that he has repeatedly said that he is 6 feet tall, the public does not seem to be in sync with him.
Fans and haters alike, have tried to prove a point, Leonardo DiCaprio’s is not 1.5 meters tall. Movies have been analyzed and pictures have been dug up and the average estimate was 5 feet 11.22 inches, and that’s all we have on Leonardo DiCaprio’s height.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s weight
Most celebrities like to keep it slim, with the exception of those whose on-screen personality is linked to their weight. Leo has had to gain and lose weight for various film roles, so here is a study of the constant fluctuation for you. Doesn’t it seem like every time you blink you see a “Leo of different size”?
Let’s go back in time to the year 2010 when the actor was shooting inception, there is no doubt that he was in good shape, the thing is, he was asked to lose about 30 pounds in preparation for his role in the Oscar-winning film. Not only did he have to look good on screen, but he also had to be physically prepared to shoot the scene where his character got into a fight.
It obviously didn’t happen overnight, there was a strict diet and intense work and it must have paid off well because the actor appeared on screen and looked as fit as ever. However, this particular look was short-lived, because by the end of the year he had gained weight again.
What was the reason for the sudden weight gain? Apparently Leo had gained a few pounds for his new movie J. Edgar. After the movie, he still packed those extra pounds, even though the audience made a fuss, the models he went out with one after the other didn’t seem to mind.
Lately, the actor looks more like his old self as he played in his last movie, The Revenant, his movie role was pretty intense and he did some things that are crazier than losing a few pounds. Apparently Leonardo DiCaprio slept in an animal carcass and ate raw bison for The Revenant. Yeah, anything for an Oscar.
The actor currently weighs 165 pounds.
