Leonardo

Leonardo DiCaprio is one of Hollywood’s heavyweights, successfully evolving from a child star, over a career that has already spanned two decades. In Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby, he plays the title role of Jay Gatsby, a handsome social climber, trying to win the heart of a married woman. Baz and Leo first teamed up 17 years ago when Luhrmann gave DiCaprio a big break, casting him in the lead role of Romeo + Juliet. Now they’re at it again and Allison Langdon has just spent time with Leo ahead of The Great Gatsby’s world premiere.
