“Someday that’s absolutely gonna happen,” Leo told Access Hollywood. “And I look forward to it.”

But, he doesn't hear his biological clock ticking just yet.

The 35-year-old actor also talked about having children with Swiss newspaper, Le Matin, saying, “Do I want to be a father?" Leo asked the Swiss newspaper (via Access Hollywood). "Yes, but I think I have a few more years.”

And he also believes he can play a great father on screen, without being one in real life.

“That said, I don’t think I need to have children to play a father in the movies," Leo, who plays the father of two young children in Inception, said. "This feeling is in me, I understand it completely. In my private life, I still have time to become a dad, and I’ve no desire to rush.”

“I like that I’ve reached an age where I can play more mature, responsible characters, and that includes the father of a family.”

Leo also shared why he chooses to keep his personal life, like his relationship with Bar Refaeli, private.

“I want to be an actor just like my role models. Robert De Niro, for example,” he shared. “Being discreet in his private life has allowed him to be even more credible in different roles on the big screen.”
