DiCaprio: I want a little break

Leonardo DiCaprio says he needs some time off after making three films in a row

Leonardo DiCaprio has revealed his plans to take a breather away from the screen.

The 38-year-old actor, who next stars in Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, admitted he wants a few months off so he can "do other things".

He told Extra: "Right now it's about getting a little breather - getting some time off to do some environmental work, stuff away from making movies. I did three films in a row, back to back to back... Not a permanent break or not an indefinite period, but you know, just a few months off to do some other things."

The actor said he has had to "adjust" to his personal life becoming public, but added: "I'm privileged to do what I do.

"There's a certain price to everything, but every time I listen to myself talk about those prices I get sick to my stomach because I'm so fortunate to do what I do, really I'm a lucky person and I have absolutely nothing to complain about.

"[A lack of privacy is] always something that's synonymous with becoming an actor but that's a conscious choice, too - you know that if you're going to venture into this world your private life is going to become public. But like I said, you adapt to those circumstances."

Responsibilities involving insurance, inheritances and taxes will command your attention. Don't put these matters off a moment longer. You may be busy with work and family, but these duties will never let up. If you continue to spend all of your energy on these things, you'll miss a golden opportunity. Ask colleagues and relatives for help with mundane errands while you focus on the long term financial future. If you don't protect your economic interests, nobody else will.More
