LEONARDO DiCaprio has decided to take a break from acting because filming three movies in two years has left him exhausted.
DiCaprio's latest movie Django Unchained is among this year's (13) Oscars favourites, and he is also preparing to release a big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby and The Wolf of Wall Street with Martin Scorsese.
However, DiCaprio insists that after such a busy year, fans will have to wait a long time before they see him in another picture.
He tells Germany's Bild, "I'm a little bit drained. I am now going to take a long, long break."
When asked about plans for his hiatus, DiCaprio suggested he plans to focus on his love of environmental activism, adding, "I would like to improve the world a bit."
During the interview, the Titanic star also revealed he speaks some German and actually practised with his Austrian/German co-star Christoph Waltz while they were making Django Unchained.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
