Leonardo DiCaprio has admitted that he is exhausted from back-to-back filming and is looking to take a ‘long, long’ break from acting. In an interview with German publication Bild [via The News], he says, “"I am a bit drained. I'm now going to take a long, long break. I've done three films in two years and I'm just worn out."
He adds that he wants to take the time to work on his environmental campaigning, saying, “I would like to improve the world a bit. I will fly around the world doing good for the environment.”
The actor is a passionate advocate for eco-friendly technology, admitting, “My roof is covered with solar panels. My car is electric. A normal person does not drive more than 50 kilometres (31 miles) a day. That can be done with a plug."
DiCaprio is currently promoting ‘Django Unchained’, and will next be seen in ‘The Great Gatsby’ with Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan. He’s definitely been busy the last few years, as right after Inception and J. Edgar, he went back-to-back with filming Django, Great Gatsby, and The Wolf of Wall Street. Although there are a lot of projects in development for the actor, there’s nothing definitive yet. He is set to produce ‘Runner, Runner’ and ‘Out of the Furnace’, but his next acting project hasn’t been confirmed and likely won’t be for a while.
