This probably isn’t the most romantic start to Jack and Rose’s extraordinary love story, but it is true. To make filming the nude scene in the movie less awkward, Kate flashed DiCaprio the first time she ever met him. Incidentally, the nude sketch scene, where Rose urges Jack to draw her like one of his French girls, was one of the first to be shot.(source)

7 Leonardo DiCaprio has never done drugs and was taught how to play being high by drug experts in the movie The Wolf of Wall Street.

While DiCaprio certainly has a wild side, the actor insists that he’s never done drugs. So, playing the role of coke-snorting Jordan Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street probably didn’t come naturally to him. In a press conference, he said that he and co-star Jonah Hill prepped for the movie by consulting with an on-set drug expert and by watching a YouTube video titled ‘The Drunkest Man in the World’.(source)

Officers of the Taliban militia arrested 28 barbers across the city of Kabul for giving customers haircuts inspired by DiCaprio’s look in Titanic. Allegedly, barbers across the country were sent a letter from the Taliban, warning them not to give western, foreign haircuts to the youth. The movie was also banned in Afghanistan but Jack’s Titanic haircut, which was basically a long fringe and cropped back, became popular after copies of the movie became available on video tapes.(source)

9  Leonardo Dicaprio bought a 104-acre island in Belize 10 years ago and has plans to build the world’s first eco-restorative resort that “restores” the island’s over-fished waters, coastline and forest.

The resort will be called ‘Blackadore Caye: A Restorative Island’ and will not only provide healing services to its guests but will also heal the island. The island is plagued by “overfishing, an eroding coastline and deforestation of its mangrove trees”. Guests will have to follow guidelines about what can, and cannot, be brought to the island. Plastic bottles, for example, will not be allowed on Blackadore Caye. The resort will also be fully equipped with infinity pools, villas built over the water, private beaches and a manatee conservation area. You can head to the island in 2018, for some serious R&R.(source)

The actor worked with orphans at SOS Children’s Villages in South Africa while he was shooting for the movie Blood Diamond. It was at the orphanage that DiCaprio really bonded with a South African baby girl, after talking and playing with her. While he will not be raising her, or living with her, Leo decided to sponsor her. He sends her a monthly cheque and they often speak on the phone.(source)
