I am a child of the 90s. I was raised on Growing Pains and definitely watched Titanic when I was way too young. These and many other factors made me a die-hard Leonardo DiCaprio fan, and my teenage heart still loves him.
Since today is Leo's birthday (He's 40! 40!!!) I thought I'd share some pictures to see how he has gone from the dorky kid on growing pains to the classy environmentalist he is today!
1970s - How cute is he?!
1989 - Starting his career with small time roles and commercials.
1991 - Cast in Growing Pains, his big break!
1993 - Staring in This Boy's Life and turning his focus to film.
1995 - Romeo & Juliet. By far one of my favorite Baz Luhrmann's and the wackiest retelling of R&J I've ever seen!
1997 - The year that changed everyone's lives. Titanic was released.
2005 - Not his best year. He was attacked at a party with a glass bottle and had to go to trial to resolve the problem.
2007 - Starred in the 11th Hour and began to work heavily in environmental affairs.
2014 - The man he is today. Happy birthday Leonardo! I hope you finally win that Oscar :)
