Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio has been in the acting industry since he was just a young boy, making scores of movies over the years and putting in some fantastic performances along the way. This has led to The Wolf of Wall Street star becoming one of the biggest and most sought after stars on the planet, so it is no surprise that the actor continues to give us plenty of movies every year.
However it seems that there are some people who feel that Leonardo DiCaprio has been overdoing things on the acting scene and he has been advised to slow things down a little. It is claimed that friends of Leonardo are worried that if he does not take a break from acting for a while, then he will run the risk of burning himself out.
A supposed source told Radar Online, "Leo has been working like a demon over the past three years - and it's now starting to come back and haunt him. He's pretty burned out at the moment and suffering from insomnia from pushing himself so hard. Everybody is begging Leo to slow down but he's just very focused on making a lot of money right now -- to the exclusion of almost everything else."
With that said, it is hard to see where Leonardo DiCaprio is going to be able to fit in a break from the movie industry, as he and his production company have a whole host of projects lined up for the coming years. Leonardo has no fewer than 35 projects currently in development, although a lot of these are as a producer. We are big fans of DiCaprio and while we would certainly miss him if he did take a break, we would hate to see him burn out.
