Craziest Things Leonardo DiCaprio Has Done For A Role


Before he won an Oscar in 2016 for The Revenant, Leonardo DiCaprio had been pushing himself to the limit in the hopes of taking home the gold statue. Forced to convince the world he was more than just Jack from Titanic, Leo has slowly become one of the very best actors of his generation. But just how far has he been willing to go for his craft?

Many actors have done crazy things for their art. From gaining weight to plastic surgery, for some, the sky is literally the limit as to what they’re willing to do for their art. How far is too far when it comes to making movies?

Now that Leo has finally got his Oscar, the question is whether he will keep putting his body through such extremes for his work. We can’t be the only ones to be afraid that if he pushes himself any further, he might get himself killed.
