What would Hollywood be like without the Leonardo DiCaprio? A very bleak place. In honor of the swoon-worthy actor’s 36th birthday, OK! brings you 36 pics for his 36 years on earth. And it’s not only his dashing good looks that captivate — his heavy-hitting performances and philanthropic acts make Leo a true A-lister! And did we mention his dating roster includes supermodels Gisele Bündchen and current bombshell Bar Refaeli!
From his early days on Growing Pains and his role in The Basketball Diaries to co-starring with the likes of Johnny Depp (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape 1993) and Meryl Streep (Marvin’s Room 1996) to three Oscar Nominations (1993 Best Supporting Actor, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape; 2004 Best Actor, The Aviator; 2006 Best Actor, Blood Diamond ) Leo is the cream of the crop when it comes to Tinseltown’s leading actors!
