He slowed down for a few years after the latter became the highest-grossing movie at the time. In an effort to shake off the stigma of being a romantic hero, Leonardo DiCaprio looked for roles in other genres, such as crime dramas like Catch Me If You Can (2002) and Gangs of New York (2002), the latter of which marked the beginning of his many fruitful partnerships with director Martin Scorsese.


In addition to playing Howard Hughes in The Aviator (2004), Leonardo DiCaprio won praise for his roles in Blood Diamond (2006), The Departed (2006), and Revolutionary Road (2008).

The action thriller Inception (2010), the western Django Unchained (2012), the romantic drama The Great Gatsby (2013), the biopic The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), the survival drama The Revenant (2015), for which he won an Academy Award and a BAFTA Award for Best Actor, and the comedy-drama Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019) were just a few of the high-profile director's projects that DiCaprio appeared in in the following decade.


What is Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation?


The man of culture, Leonardo DiCaprio, is no stranger to giving to a wide range of charities and has a long history of doing so. This actor left a trail of numerous charities that have greatly benefited from his selflessness and generosity, including Declare Yourself, Feeding America, Global Cool, Global Green, the Pediatric Epilepsy Project, and many more.

Through a number of cooperative partnerships, the organization supports efforts in integrated innovation that contribute to the preservation of wildlife while also bringing harmony to communities and unbalanced ecosystems. His foundation has donated more than $80 million to support more than 70 incredibly successful projects in more than 40 nations since it was founded.


In July 2015, DiCaprio committed $15 million in grants to a range of environmental groups working on global conservation initiatives. The benefits of this initiative range from those that empower indigenous communities to protect and preserve their natural resources to cutting-edge organizations dedicated to innovation and environmental preservation.


DiCaprio has decided to step up his own efforts to support those who are tackling the most urgent problems in relation to global conservation after being inspired by Al Gore's fight against global warming, helping to make it possible for organizations like ClearWater and National Geographic Pristine Seas, which work to protect millions of acres of tropical rainforest in Ecuador and the seas, respectively, to accomplish more ambitious goals in a shorter amount of time.


Leo contributed $35,000 outside of his foundation to start the Leonardo DiCaprio Computer Center at the Los Feliz Library in California, which was constructed on the site of his childhood home. He contributed $1 million to the relief efforts for Haiti and another $1 million to those for Hurricane Harvey.
