Leonard DiCaprio almost gave up acting after 1997’s Titanic sent him into superstardom. He didn’t like the attention he was getting, because he felt he was known as “another piece of cute meat.”
“It was pretty disheartening to be objectified like that. I wanted to stop acting for a little bit. It changed my life in a lot of ways, but at the same time, I can’t say that it didn’t give me opportunities. It made me, for the first time, in control of my career.”
Leo says he now loves acting and is getting the kind of roles he wants. Yeah, I don’t think he has to worry about being “cute meat” anymore. I mean now his meat is sort of bloated, fat and a little rancid. That being said, I’d totally let him stick the tip in.
