Veg out with Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo DiCaprio was born the on November 11, he is a Scorpio, the seducer of the Zodiac. Water sign Scorpio's are said to be strong willed and magnetic. Leonardo DiCaprio definitely seems to fit such qualities. The gorgeous DiCaprio is not only a great actor, he is also a practicing environmentalist and humanitarian. DiCaprio flies commercial flights, uses solar power, and drives a hybrid too. DiCaprio also donates and volunteers for children's causes. All these qualities make me love Leonardo DiCaprio even more. I suspect Leonardo DiCaprio will have a lifelong successful acting career like the great actor Jack Nicholson. Be sure to catch DiCaprio's next great movie "Inception", a sci-fi thriller
in theaters now.
