His new film “The Great Gatsby” hits theaters next month, and during promotions Leonardo DiCaprio covered the May 2013 issue of Esquire magazine. After donning a sexy suit for the Max Vadukul black-and-white photo shoot, the 38-year-old actor opened up about everything from the pesky paparazzi to his acting success.
“Mostly recently, the last few years, I feel way more comfortable than I’ve ever felt,” the “Titanic” star explained about his career. “You always talk about that, and then one day you’re like, ‘If they don’t like this, well, f***’em.’ What can you do?”
“Hey, look, I’m pretty well-formed as an adult now. I don’t have to impress anybody,” he added.
When discussing the annoying shutterbugs, Mr. DiCaprio said, “Look, if you’re not careful about it, it can develop into a social anxiety. It’s like, what’s going to happen, what photographer is going to jump out where, what kind of thing am I being set up for? You try to talk yourself out of it, but you’re never used to it.”
In regards to living the single life, Leo declared, “Six months of being on location or being off in Morocco or someplace like that is not the best thing for a relationship.”
