**After seeing this film last night for the first, and last time, it is absolute that Leo gave a masterful Oscar worthy performance. However, the film was disgusting, filthy and sexist. It is basically pure porn and not anything that I would ever suffer through again, nor could ever recommend.**
We will be finally be able to see this multi talented man in the highly acclaimed, ” Wolf Of Wall Street.”
It was just recorded overnight and we will watch it for the first time tonight.
Leonardo DiCaprio has enjoyed a lengthy, impressive film career and when he comes to town, people always take notice.
As a long time admirer of his off-screen philanthropic work, it is so fitting to write this today to acknowledge what happened yesterday in New York.
Although most people, I suppose, think of Leo only as a movie star, like with so many others who perform on-screen, my respect for him, comes not for his acting, but for the admirable things he does away from Hollywood.
When he made his appearance yesterday at the UN Summit on Climate Change, Leo wasn’t just showing up to be admired, although he was given a most prestigious welcoming by the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, naming him as the Messenger of Peace.
For this Hollywood legend, Climate Change and the disturbing state of the World’s Environmental Health are not only vital, they are something that he has cared deeply about for many years.
So often with those who are in the public eye and under the glare of the lights, it can sometimes be difficult to be taken seriously for those causes, or issues that are close to your heart.
Especially when you look like Leo!
This well known and much loved man, who came to this Summit, was only one of a very long list of VIP’s, Global leaders and others who came to speak about what so many believe, is the most important issue in our World right now, Climate Change.
What disturbs many of us the most, is that it has been five very long years since the last one and nothing was done at that one.
This very abused and tired planet, simply cannot wait another five years for us to wake up and stop our deadly bad behavior.
At any given moment, Mother Earth may just throw her hands up and say: ” You don’t show me any respect, so forget you, I’m outta here~”
Or she may allow us one more last gasp of a chance, thanks to some people like Leo.
You gotta love Leo~

I did not know this about Leo. I hope he can get the message across to all corners of the world.

He is a complicated, multi-faceted man with great talent and passion for our Planet.
But he is only one, we must all do our part too.
