With more than 50 awards and over thrice as many nominations, there is little doubt that Leonardo DiCaprio’s talent lies in acting. Here are the top five movie characters he played and left us completely blown away.
Jack Dawson in 1997’s Titanic
Titanic has always been the epic romance tragedy, and DiCaprio starred in it as Jack Dawson. We all loved the latter’s energy and determination to live every day as if it were his last one, plus his love with Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) is pure magic.
Jordan Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street
DiCaprio’s performance as Jordan Belfort in Terence Winter’s The Wolf of Wall Street is impressive. Jordan’s pitching style is something we all admire, and his drive to make money gives us hope that we can all be super rich if we work hard enough.
Frank Abagnale in Catch Me If You Can
We all hope that we’ll never be victims of scammers and cons, but we can all agree that Frank (DiCaprio) in Catch Me If You Can is incredibly smart, despite his young age. Unfortunately, he ends up in prison, but he also works for the FBI later, so maybe things are not so bad for him.
Hugh Glass in The Revenant
DiCaprio played Glass in 2015’s The Revenant, and he killed it! Critics loved how he fully committed himself to the role. Anybody who has watched the movie can’t help but awe at Glass’s perseverance.
Howard Hughes in The Aviator
Evidently, DiCaprio relished playing the role of Hughes in John Logan’s The Aviator. One of the things that he teaches us is that disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) should not limit our ambition.
