Leonardo DiCaprio is one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors, so naturally everyone wants to know what his plan is where a love life is concerned.
The 39-year old actor has been linked in recent years to Blake Lively and supermodel Gisele Bundchen, but hasn’t come close to walking down the aisle yet. He says it’s not out of the question, but he just doesn’t know what the future holds for him.
“I take it as it comes,” the actor said. “We’ll see what happens in the future. We’ll see what happens. … I don’t try to determine what the future will be. I take it day by day.”
He also said that, for an actor who is so dedicated to his job, it’s not easy to work and have a relationship.
“Six months of being on location or being off in Morocco or someplace like that is not the best thing for a relationship,” he said. “There’s a certain price to everything, but every time I listen to myself talk about those prices I get sick to my stomach because I’m so fortunate to do what I do, really I’m a lucky person.”
DiCaprio, whose turn as a controlling, wealthy Southern aristocrat in “Django Unchained” was quite a departure from his past roles, also talked a bit about his latest film, “The Great Gatsby”. The movie is based on the popular book and was helmed by Baz Luhrmann, who also directed DiCaprio in “Romeo + Juliet”.
“When you make a movie, you have to be much more specific about everything you do. You have to make choices as an actor and as a storyteller that dramatize these brilliant chapters. I think it’s a risk, just in the sense that it’s so beloved, and you’re almost setting yourself up for criticism in a lot of ways,” he said.
