ControversiesIn 2005, he was severely injured when a model named Aretha Wilson hit him over the head with a broken bottle at a Hollywood party. Wilson, while protesting her innocence, claimed she thought Mr DiCaprio was, in fact, an ex-boyfriend who had been bad-mouthing her. DiCaprio needed 17 stitches for the gashes on his face and ear. Later, Wilson pleaded guilty and was sentenced to two years in prison in 2010.

In June 2017, he returned Marlon Brando’s best actor Oscar statuette to the US government as part of an investigation into the money laundering by a state-owned Malaysian investment fund. He also returned Picasso painting and other artifacts that he had received as his 38th birthday gift in 2012 from business associates at Red Granite Pictures, which also funded his film “Wolf of Wall Street.” Reportedly, Red Granite co-founder Riza Aziz may have helped his stepfather, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, embezzle USD 4.5 billion from a political development scheme, reported Los Angeles Times. The misappropriated funds were used to form the production company that funded the Martin Scorsese-directed movie “Wolf of Wall Street.”

In September 2019, various climate activists from India urged him to withdraw support for a controversial tree-planting program in India, which could result in catastrophic environmental damage. In an open letter, more than 90 Indian environmental and rights groups, warned DiCaprio and his endorsement of the Cauvery Calling campaign was ill-advised. They said the campaign could lead to the “drying up of streams and rivulets and destruction of wildlife habitats.”

Leonardo DiCaprio Quotes:

“You can dream of a moment for years and still somehow miss it when it comes. You’ve got to reach through the flames and take it, or lose it forever. I took it.”

“I wear the mask. It does not wear me.”

“I still believe in paradise. But now at least I know it’s not some place you can look for. Because it’s not where you go. It’s how you feel for a moment in your life when you’re a part of something. And if you find that moment … it lasts forever.”

“Two little mice fell in a bucket of cream. The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse, wouldn’t quit. He struggled so hard that eventually he churned that cream into butter and crawled out. Gentlemen, as of this moment, I am that second mouse.”
