leonardo dicaprio, environment“I think I was sort of a little biologist when I was younger. I watched documentaries on rain forest depletion and the loss of species and habitats and it affected me a lot. So I wanted to continue that path and learn more about ecological issues. I try to practice what I preach. I’ve been driving a hybrid car for years now. My house is built green with solar panels. I admit I don’t walk to work and I don’t have a compost pile, but I am trying to set an example.”

– Leonardo DiCaprio in a new interview with Parade Magazine. The actor’s next film, Shutter Island, opens tomorrow.
