Leonardo DiCaprio Calls Working Schedule 'Is Not the Best Thing for a Relationship'


Leonardo DiCaprio


The 'Great Gatsby' actor talks about fame and how his filming schedule makes it difficult for him to maintain a relationship.

Leonardo DiCaprio graces the cover of Esquire's May edition and has an interview with the magazine about how hard it is for him to keep working and maintaining a relationship at the same time. The 38-year-old actor, who dated beauties like Gisele Bundchen, Bar Refaeli and Erin Heatherton explains his single status, "Six months of being on location or being off in Morocco or someplace like that is not the best thing for a relationship."

DiCaprio also reveals that he thinks he is an "underdog" in Hollywood despite his acclaimed acting career. "I didn't have nice enough clothes or maybe my hair didn't look good. And so you have to understand -getting your foot in the door is like winning the lottery. It's literally like winning the lottery if you get to have a career," he says.

"And I've always felt, Okay, now I've gotten this shot, and I'm lucky to have gotten this shot, and if I don't do this to the best of my ability - if I don't work my a** off and make a life of it - I've squandered this incredibly golden opportunity. And that's always been what has propelled me," he continues.

He tells the magazine that he has a long struggle to cope with fame. "I really didn't understand what fame was and I didn't understand what being in a giant hit was and I didn't understand what a giant hit 'Titanic' was compared to other giant hits," he adds. "There was no rule book. There was nobody to navigate me through the experience of being watched all the time and nobody to tell me how to be normal when everybody is acting and looking at me differently."

"Look, if you're not careful about it, it can develop into a social anxiety," DiCaprio concludes. "It's like, what's going to happen, what photographer is going to jump out where, what kind of thing am I being set up for? You try to talk yourself out of it, but you're never used to it."

However, nowadays he feels happier about his career. "Most recently, in the last few years, I feel way more comfortable than I've ever felt," he says.
