With five Academy Award nominations and a win for “The Revenant,” Leonardo DiCaprio has established himself as a Hollywood icon who has stayed classy, opting for challenging roles with major auteurs including Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese — all the while chasing humanitarian issues through his prolific environmental activism.
In “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” DiCaprio plays a washed-up movie star at the end of his tether — which is perhaps the biggest stretch yet for an actor with such an esteemed pedigree and enviable body of work. With nearly $3 billion dollars of global box office to his name, and a list of roles that prove his selective instincts each time out, DiCaprio is one of the few movie stars working today who always delivers something worth seeing. His “Hollywood” character may be facing a challenging moment in his career, but it’s safe to assume that DiCaprio himself is just getting started.
