Leo DiCaprio Vows To Save Environment By Flying All Over The World

Django Unchained and Titanic star Leonardo DiCaprio says he is planning to take a significant break from filming and concentrate on his environmental campaigning.

In an interview with Germany's mass circulation daily Bild, the 38-year-old American actor said: "I am a bit drained. I'm now going to take a long, long break. I've done three films in two years and I'm just worn out.''

"I would like to improve the world a bit. I will fly around the world doing good for the environment,''

Um... I wonder if he realizes that planes burn fossil fuel. Hopefully, he'll fly public airlines instead of chartering a jet.

"I would like to improve the world a bit."

Just the fact that you're going to take a "long break" from making movies takes care of that.

The clown doesn’t know squat about the environment. Hollywood isn’t exactly the greenest industry in the world either.

I remember reading that they bulldozed a mountaintop in Slovakia and covered it with wax to film the final scene in that movie.

I’ve heard this guy talk and have read his interviews. He is not a very smart guy, to say the least. He is a very good actor though.

LOL! Nice1. If you wouldn't mind, can you burn some of the 10 gallons of used motor oil I'm storing in my garage?

On second thought, I'll just dump them in the storm sewer at the end of my driveway....in honor of Leo's environmental improvement efforts of course.

doing good for the environment

environmental campaigning

How do you do good for the environment?

How do you campaign for the environment?

People say stuff like this so other people will feel good about you. And it is very infantile and immature.

Think how deep down empty your soul would have to be to say stupid stuff like this, so other stupid idiots will say "What a good man this is."

Why dosent he do something useful like start a gun manufacturing company and create some employment.

When I read this, I felt a deep sense of embarrassment for this guy. Announcing a public relations campaign for his ego. What an empty suit.

It appears that there are a couple of flop movies in progress. Matt Damon, Russell Crowe, Sean Penn, and Arnold Schwarzenegger to name a few. GOOD!

Maybe not exactly related, but I have a suspicion that Hollywood may not be too happy with some recent things from their stars. Jamie Foxx's joke about killing white people, Sammy Jackson's statement about voting for Obama because he is black, and Jessica Alba telling us that we should pledge allegiance to Obama. Of course, Hollywood may agree with these things, but it kind of doesn't want stars going around saying them. They still won't admit, but it does hurt the bottom line. I enjoyed the Avengers, but a sequel is on my list of movies not to watch because of the Obama supporting human debris who star in it. There have been several movies I have already passed on because of who is in it. We each make our choices for our own reasons. I can no longer pay money to see movies made by people who support the terror Obama is going to bring to us all. The few hours of entertainment value simply cannot counter the daily consciousness of what is going on in this nation.

Ditto here. Those who are donors, endorsers, party guests, media members or entertainers should not profit from us.

Their disdain of capitalism, the Constitution and our freedoms IS acceptable to the Occupy people, the work-hating/refusing entitlement crowd, the morally corrupt, the low-information people and the ignorant.

Cry me a river. Reading lines in front of a camera is "WORK"??? Probably got paid $25 million for each of those picture. Sheesh. Pansy-ass wouldn't last a day at a real job.

I know. I can’t go in good consciousness to movies anymore made by people who say in essence, “See my movie and make me rich. And I hope Obama takes everything you have and you die in poverty.”

That is just so special about darling Leo. But the environment has been around for a couple of million years, and there isn’t a whole lot Leo can do for it. I have a kind suggestion though. There are a lot of people STILL suffering because of that nasty little storm that did so much damage in New York. I bet a LOT of them have seen his movies. Maybe Leo can go there, and start with one house, just one house, and do what he can to get the house repaired, get the power restored, and then go to the next house. Leo should help the people who are suffering because of the incompetence of the Democrats he loves so much. He should help the people, and let mother nature take care of the weather.

I've read that Geoge Clooney, Matt Damon, and Sean Penn's "star power" is diminishing rapidly precisely because their political views REALLY turn off about half the audience.

Not smart to alienate prospective "buyers" of a product you are trying to sell.

And frankly the only one with any actual talent is Penn.

Doesn't mean I'll pay to see his movies anymore.

Just like certain politicians...this guy thinks he's far more significant then he really is....

Hollywood has their “favorites” and so does Washington. In both arenas it's competing for the major ‘roles’....and that always depends on who you know..not who you are...be it a statesman or an actor...one is “positioning” the other is “role-playing”....both are attempting to gain “attention” and keep their bank accounts flush.
