To all you ladies out there, Leonardo DiCaprio opened up in the brand new issue of Parade about wanting to be married and live a normal life.
The "Titanic" hunk said, "What I definitely feel a need for is to make my life about more than just my career. Just last night I was thinking to myself how little of my life has been lived normally and not spent on some far-off movie location. I want to get married and have children. In saying that, I realize I am contradicting everything I've said before. I absolutely believe in marriage."
The 33-year-old Academy Award-winning actor added, "I hope I never get cynical. I think you need youthful energy, excitement, and optimism in life.” Mr. DiCaprio talked about his other loves saying, “There is a lot I want to do, and the more cynical you become, the more you sit on your butt and do nothing. The one thing that I would love is to never become cynical about the things I think are really important, like family, like the environment. What I want is to be known as someone who stood for something."
DiCaprio started off in the spotlight at a very young age, but stated, "My parents never tried to steer me in any direction. I wanted to be an actor, but I never thought it was a real possibility, ever. I thought I’d be a marine biologist, because nature and evolution fascinated me.”
“We're all after love, aren't we?" he said. "Love is what people are hungry for. That's absolutely why I became an actor."
When the popular "Titanic" came out in 1996, DiCaprio got his break-through role, telling,"I'm grateful for the possibilities it's given me. If it hadn't been for that movie, I wouldn't have been able to take control of my career.” For that duration of that time, Mr. DiCaprio said, “I started to think about things that meant more to the world than this glorified, superficial media exposure of me, something I never felt was justified."
