He is not ugly, he is somewhat cute though not attractive, I am not much a fan but he has always been a fantastic,amazing actor, very skilled, his talent could never be denied.
People like him and Tom Hanks are definitely in the right profession.

He hit his peak in Titanic as far as his looks, where he was gorgeous to look at, and that's when he became an A-list megastar. What I find interesting is how he has sustained his career since then despite losing his boyish good looks. The only actor you can compare Leo to is Tom Cruise, but I think Leo is more respected in Hollywood than Tom.

He was a pretty boy who hit it big before his looks faded.
Then he never did a paycheck movie again. Only did interesting movies with great directors. He basically was only willing to work with a handful of directors over the past 23 years. And he worked with Scorsese 5 times which is 30% of his post Titanic output.

Joaquin and Leo are equal in talent, IMO. Their strengths are just different. Joaquin excels at playing the broken, the twisted, and the walking wounded with extraordinary depth and empathy. Joaquin takes a lot of Sean Penn type of roles but he has a sweetness and guilelessness that Penn lacks and this only adds to the complexity of his characters.
Leo can play the straight man (hee), the everyman, and authority figures convincingly despite his boyish countenance. He also excels at fringe dwellers. Leo was really cute in his early twink years and is still reasonably attractive.

He has a small ding-a-ling. You can see it in that Total Eclipse. A movie where he was totally out of his element aka period piece.
He was a shoo-in for the role because River Phoenix was unavailable. He died / ODd / was murdered by Johnny Depp in front of the Viper Room.

I like Leo a lot (and still think he's cute -- sorry, OP) but I guess my only hesitation with calling him "the greatest actor of his generation" is that he's never done any stage work (or has he? maybe I missed it). I know it makes me old-school to think this way about it (I'm 56) but to me, when you're talking about someone in those kinds of elevated terms, then my mind goes to great actors of the stage as well as film -- Olivier, the Barrymores, actors like that. Acting on film is hard, no doubt, but the stage is where you really prove your mettle -- there are no 20 takes to get it right or someone who will "fix it" for you later in the editing room. It's just you and the words on a stage in front of an audience and I just have so much respect for actors who don't shy away from that challenge. Yes, I know actors on Leo's level don't "have" to do theater -- because why work that hard if you don't have to -- but they should also not be ordained with the title "greatest actor of his/her generation" either because they have not, in my opinion at least, really earned it when their aversion to risk dictates every move they make (and don't make).
Ethan Hawke and Mark Rylance are two modern-day examples of actors who are not only great on film but also on the stage. Each gravitates between both mediums with great ease that many could learn from. And of course there's Denzel Washington, who is without question one of the greatest of his generation and who has never feared putting his neck on the line artistically by appearing on stage. Whether or not one thinks he is successful at it is beside the point; at least he's not afraid to take the chance. That is why, in my opinion, it is actors like him and Hawke and Rylance (to name but a few) for whom I have more respect than movie stars like Leo who, when you put their career choices under a microscope, never really venture beyond the confines of their safety zones.

He could look breathtaking in his prime, but only when photographed from a certain angle, with a certain facial expression, under certain lighting conditions. In Titanic I noticed that he tends to look better in natural light. Even then his face sometimes had a puffiness to it and his lips looked thin in 'indoor' scenes (e.g. the 'drawing' scene in Titanic).
|by Anonymous||reply 54||November 28, 2021 8:15 PM|
I always thought he WANTED to be ugly after Titanic. He cut off his hair, started piling on the pounds, and changed his acting style from emoting mostly through his eyes to pulling ugly Jack Nicholson-esque grimaces. He SHOULD have been hot in The Beach, the first movie he acted in after the release of Titanic, but something about his demeanor in that film was extremely repulsive to me, and I remember thinking, 'He's doing that on purpose'. I felt like he was more concerned with NOT being 'Leo' than trying to actually disappear into the character.

You're right, R55. I don't think he was ever comfortable with the "sex symbol" status he got with Titanic. I also remember jokes about him looking like a lesbian around that period.
He wanted to prove that he was more than just a pretty face and could act. I consider him two-dimensional like Tom Cruise. What some may see as great acting from him, I view it as movie star screen presence and charisma, and Leo certainly has that.

Talent is measured by box office success or net worth. "You don't have an inflated number of billions like Jared and Ivanka, or the Kardashians, so who would ever listen to your poor ass opinion?"
diCaprio is "a magnificent actor" if your measure is box office and your idea of talent is emoting an excruciating shit. I have a dog who can do the latter, better, and with overlays of other emotions.
Trump has cleared the path for a nation of imbeciles to wander about sharing their big think tank ideas. Sure, his popularity stems from years before Trump, but Trump made it easy to cite $$$ or big tits as a good reason for any bad thing.

Someone posted a thread the other day linking to a website that shows different celebrities transformed by an app into the opposite gender.
Young Leo's face did not change *at all*; the AI just gave him long hair.
Maybe he was just pretty enough as a young person that he had his fill of feeling attractive to other people. I imagine as an adolescent in Hollywood, it probably attracted some very unwanted attentions from a lot of older men.
It's interesting to see how many women and men alike fight against nature to keep their youthful beauty, and then people like Leonardo DiCaprio, Marlon Brando, Kathleen Turner et al. appear to just be totally fine with going to seed as nature wants them to do.
