He is the only child of Irmelin (née Indenbirken), a legal secretary, and George DiCaprio, an underground comix artist and producer and distributor of comic books. DiCaprio’s father is of Italian (from Alife) and German (from Bavaria) descent. DiCaprio’s maternal grandfather, Wilhelm Indenbirken, was German. His maternal grandmother, Helene Indenbirken (born Yelena Smirnova; 1915–2008), was a Russian-born German citizen. In an interview in Russia, DiCaprio referred to himself as “half-Russian” and said that two of his grandparents were Russian. DiCaprio’s parents met while attending college and subsequently moved to Los Angeles, California.
DiCaprio was named Leonardo because his pregnant mother was looking at a Leonardo da Vinci painting in the Uffizi museum in Florence, Italy, when he first kicked. His parents separated when he was a year old, and he lived mostly with his mother. The two lived in several Los Angeles neighborhoods, such as Echo Park and Los Feliz (his Los Feliz residence was later converted into a public library), while his mother worked several jobs. DiCaprio attended Seeds Elementary School (now UCLA Lab School) and John Marshall High School a few blocks away
In 1979, DiCaprio was removed at the age of five from the set of the children’s television series Romper Room for being disruptive.
He began his career by appearing in several commercials and educational films, following his older stepbrother Adam Farrar into television commercials, and landing an ad at age 14 for Matchbox cars by Mattel, which he considered his first role. Throughout his teens he was seen in commercials for Kraft Foods, Bubble Yum, Apple Jacks, and many more.
In 1989, he played the role of Glen in two episodes of the television show The New Lassie.

That same year, DiCaprio got a break on television when he was cast in Parenthood. A series based on a successful comedy film by the same name. His works that year earned him two nomination at the Young Artist Award in Best Young Actor in a Daytime Series (Santa Barbara) and Best Young Actor Starring in a New Television Series (Parenthood).
In 1991, he played an un-credited role in one episode of Roseanne.
Later that year, DiCaprio’s debut film role was in the comedic sci-fi horror film Critters 3, in which he played the stepson of an evil landlord, a role that DiCaprio described as “your average, no-depth, standard kid with blond hair.” Released in March that year, the movie went direct-to-video.

He played opposite De Niro, who was acting as his stepfather, and Ellen Barkin as his mother. The film was directed by Michael Caton-Jones and released in 1993.
In 1993, DiCaprio co-starred as the mentally handicapped brother of Johnny Depp’s character in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, a comic-tragic odyssey of a dysfunctional Iowa family. Director Lasse Hallström admitted he was initially looking for a less good-looking actor but finally settled on DiCaprio as he had emerged as “the most observant actor” among all who auditioned. Budgeted at US$11 million, the film became a critical success, resulting in various accolades for DiCaprio, who was awarded the National Board of Review Award and nominated for both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for his portrayal. New York Times critic Janet Maslin praised DiCaprio’s performance, writing “the film’s real show-stopping turn comes from Mr. DiCaprio, who makes Arnie’s many tics so startling and vivid that at first he is difficult to watch. The performance has a sharp, desperate intensity from beginning to end.” this is the struggle of Leonardo because of his hard struggle im gonna wish him again HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEONARDO DICAPRIO
DiCaprio’s romantic relationships have been widely covered in the media. In 1997, DiCaprio dated the British singer Emma Bunton.

LEONARDO DICAPRIO OSCAR
It was a big night at the 2016 Oscars for Leonardo DiCaprio, who joined the ranks of Oscar winners by the end of the telecast. Kicking off his night, Leonardo made headlines walking the red carpet with fellow Oscar nominee Kate Winslet, giving fans a Titanic reunion. The biggest highlight of the night for the six-time Oscar nominated actor: making history by finally winning his first Oscar! Leonardo won Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in The Revenant, and his Oscar acceptance speech was certainly one for the record books.
Making The Revenant was about man’s relationship to the natural world. A world that we collectively felt in 2015 as the hottest year in recorded history. Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow. Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people out there who would be most affected by this. For our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed. I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted. Thank you so very much.
