In news necessitating the presence of a Claire Danes Cry Face GIF, teen heartthrob and alleged big fan of Gelato Messina (like, ‘1.5L take home tub’ big), Leonardo DiCaprio, is reportedly taking “a long, long break” from acting. 

In other words, Leonardo DiCaprio is taking a Gentleman’s Intermission. Cue this.

Leonardo DiCaprio is Taking a “Long Long Break” From Acting

Deadline are reporting that after working on three films in two years [exhausting], DiCaprio has seen fit to go on hiatus from life on camerá, telling German daily Bild, “I am a bit drained. I’m going to take a long, long break. I’ve done three films in two years and I’m just worn out.

Leo is currently on the press/awards season circuit for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained and will soon begin spruiking his shirt-flinging abilities in Baz Luhrmann’s delayed opus in 3D, The Great Gatsby. In addition to this, he’s just finished filming Martin Scorcese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, which also stars Australian newbie Margot Robbie, so try not to take the news of his exhaustion any harder than you already are.

In his me-time, Soy DiCap will ‘focus on me’, travel and promote environmental awareness: “I would like to improve the world a bit. I will fly around the world doing good for the environment.”

Before you point out the inherent contradiction of flying a jumbo jet around the world to do good for the environment [INCEPTION HORNS], know that Leo offsets his carbon emissions through a “roof covered with solar panels. My car is electric. A normal person does not drive more than 50 kilometres a day. That can be done with a plug.”

Simple ways that you too can do good for the environment and have something, anything, in common with Leonardo DiCaprio: actor on hiatus and full-time environmentalist
