DiCaprio garnered a Best Actor Oscar nomination yesterday for his role as a South African mercenary in Blood Diamond, while his other blockbuster, The Departed, is up for Best Picture. He plays an undercover cop in the crime thriller.
He says, “I caught myself on the phone the other day. Leo has been playing some real strong men these last few years and I found myself saying, ‘I want to play more of a man.’ I got off the phone and I thought, ‘No, live like a man, and the movies will follow.'”
