Leonardo DiCaprio taking a 'long, long break' from acting

Leonardo DiCaprio is taking a "long, long break" from acting.
The 'Django Unchained' star has admitted he is completely "worn out" after shooting three intense movies back-to-back and is planning to take a significant amount of time away from Hollywood.
The 38-year-old actor told German newspaper Bild: "I am a bit drained. I'm not going to take a long, long break. I've done three films in two years and I'm just worn out."
Before shooting his latest movie, Leonardo filmed the adaptation of 'The Great Gatsby' with Baz Luhrmann and Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street.'
The actor plans to use his time off to focus on his other passion, saving the environment.
He said: "I would like to improve the world a bit. I will fly around the world doing good for the environment. My roof is 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."
Leonardo previously revealed he likes to act "like a complete idiot" to relax.
He said: "I take what I do very seriously when I'm on the set that's all I focus on. So my vice is to hang out with my friends, talk about absolutely nothing of importance and act like a complete idiot.
"It's like therapy to just be a complete idiot with my friends."
But Leonardo hasn't spent time in Los Angeles with his friends for "a year and a half" because of his busy filming schedule and he is "looking forward" to some home comforts when he has finished his promotional work.
He explained: "I love to have friends over, but I haven't really been home for a year and a half so I don't even remember the last time I did that.
"I've just done three movies back-to-back, so I'm looking forward to getting back to my house."
Who the fuck wants to hear that when they're busting their asses 40+ hours a week to (barely) make ends meet?

Kind of an unfortunate quote. Was this vetted by his "people"?
Well, now that i think about it, Leo has been working regularly since he was a kid. He has done a couple dozen films and received several Oscar nominations.

and sucking dick
"Working hard" on a movie isn't really working hard though, is it Leo?

Translates to: gets sloppy drunk to relax
It's because his head is splitting open, it's cracking down the center. A fault-line has been forming down the center of his forehead for years.
Who doesn't love a cleaved forehead?

Evidently he doesn't share my view that the world would be improved by a reduction in sanctimony levels.
Instead of flitting about the world via jets to preach about his low carbon footprint, he might stay at home and improve the pea brain inside that great huge noggin, or at least leave behind the big steamer trunk filled with lessons on how others should live.
I thought he was finally going to settle down and get married.
It starts out with: "Leonardo DiCaprio is taking a "long, long break" from acting."
Then goes on to quote him saying: "I'm not going to take a long, long break."

We LOVE it when they do our work for us.

So let me get this straight, OP. "I'm not going to take a long, long break," means "I'm going to take a long, long break."
I'm worn out too! I wish Leo would give ME a break!
Lukas Haas's hole
Has anyone in the history of the world ever changed their lifestyle because some narcissist with a publicist said they should?
But I don't suppose it really matters, if what he wants is to feel good about himself.
He's getting wrinkles, uh-oh. Next stop Lifetime movies. Hello Tatum!
Tired of playing the game!
Ain't it a cwying shame,
I'm so tired!
Goddammit, I'm exhausted!
Translation: "I've been trolling for an Oscar for two years now, and Fuck You all, I'm not going to play any more! For a little while."
I know how THAT feels!
Is he afraid we won't know he's missing even for a short time?
Does anyone else think the real Leonardo DiCaprio died and was replaced was a near lookalike who has a giant bowling ball head and can't act like Paul was replaced with Faul? Because I do. Or else he has that disease Rocky Dennis died from.
Many conspiracies of Leo in hiding, while a fake DiCaprio plays him.
Leo is pushing 40 - perhaps he's ready to settle down and get married and have kids!
Normal person??? Does he realize how patronizing and stupid that sounds?
I wonder how the real DiCaprio died.
Why didn't Leo ever get together with that nice Kate Winslet? They would have made a lovely couple. Maybe their schedules were too hectic after 'Titanic' to spend any time together.
Your great-aunt Edna

Take it easy, drama queen.
Oh, I like that conspiracy theory a lot!
If he died (or retired and hid), around what time can we see the difference ? In which film ?
Now, for the long, long break that make him appear like a sore loser who takes back his toys because not nominated, I blame the journalists with their sensationalist titles that don't reflect the truth.
For the record, I drive more or less 100 km a day, and I don't have to drive that much for my job.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
