 We share a special relationship. Martin trusts my instincts,

 He is also Italian, from the same neighbourhood and at the same age as my father. He gives me as an actor always the feeling of security.

 I was 12 and people were coming to our school to inform us about different professions, There was a salesman, a biologist... and suddenly someone said, 'Acting is a profession as well.' And I thought 'What? You can earn money with that?' From that moment on it was clear that I wanted to try it.

 It was one of the most daunting experiences of my life, because everything could have come differently if I wouldn't have been concentrating on what was said... I think it's scary, this haphazardness of life. I could have been distracted on that day.

 Just because you've done a good performance once, doesn't mean you're always going to be good... That's why some of the greatest actors in the world have gone a little bit nuts. They're saying to themselves, 'What happened? You used to love me?' It's an easy trap to fall into. You just have to realize that when you're hot, you're hot, and when you're not, you're not.

 I think I was sort of a little biologist when I was younger. I watched documentaries on rain forest depletion and the loss of species and habitats and it affected me a lot. So I wanted to continue that path and learn more about ecological issues. I try to practice what I preach. I've been driving a hybrid car for years now. My house is built green with solar panels. I admit I don't walk to work and I don't have a compost pile, but I am trying to set an example.

 I did a film with Robert De Niro called This Boy's Life. I was just sort of a wild child that didn't know how to conduct himself on a film set or obey any rules. Finally, De Niro said to me, 'Look, I know this may suck right now, but pain is temporary, film is forever. Whatever you do right now is burned into celluloid for all time and for thousands of years to come.' That mantra kind of stuck with me, and no matter how hard it was doing a film, I never forgot it. No matter what happens, your work speaks for itself in the end.

 If you'd asked me at sixteen the director I wanted to work with, it would have been Martin Scorsese. So I couldn't wait to be in one of his films. You have to know your character inside out or he'll let you have it. Marty's not afraid to sit there for days on end just to get a scene right. Most important, I trust him which makes my job as an actor a lot easier. 
— Leonardo Di-Caprio on his childhood dreams / February 17, 2010
 I have to say Shutter Island was one of the most intense, hardcore filming experiences I've ever had as we explored what the mentally ill had to face in the days when mental hospitals were called insane asylums. It was really very traumatic, and I don't say that about a film very often. I went to places and unearthed some things that I didn't think I was capable of. It was like an emotional layer cake that just kept getting deeper and deeper. 
— Leonardo Di-Caprio / February 17, 2010
 When I take nicotine patches I have blood curdling nightmares of murder. Mass murders,I wake up in the middle of the night and have to take them off. I don't really remember my dreams that much apart from then. I don't know what that means about me from a psychological point of view but that's the truth.
