LEONARDO DiCAPRIO (Jordan Belfort/Producer) is an award-winning actor and a three-time Academy Award nominee. DiCaprio most recently starred as Jay Gatsby in "The Great Gatsby", directed by Baz Luhrmann. Prior to "The Great Gatsby", he starred in "Django Unchained," where he received a Golden Globe nomination for his work. As the title role in "J. Edgar", under the direction of Clint Eastwood, he received Golden Globe, Critics' Choice and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award nominations for his work in the film. Additionally, he starred in Christopher Nolan's blockbuster "Inception," and the dramatic thriller "Shutter Island," which marked his fourth collaboration with director Martin Scorsese, prior to "Wolf of Wall Street," his fifth film under the direction of Scorsese.

DiCaprio earned his latest Oscar nod in 2007 for his performance in Edward Zwick's drama "Blood Diamond," also receiving Golden Globe, Critics' Choice and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award nominations for his work in the film. That same year, he garnered Golden Globe, BAFTA Award, Critics' Choice Award and SAG Award nominations for his role in the Oscar-winning Best Picture "The Departed," directed by Scorsese. He also shared in a SAG Award nomination for Outstanding Motion Picture Cast Performance as a member of the ensemble cast of "The Departed."

He previously earned an Academy Award nomination for his performance in Scorsese's acclaimed 2004 biopic "The Aviator." DiCaprio's portrayal of Howard Hughes in that film also brought him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama, as well as Critics' Choice and BAFTA Award nominations. He was also honored with two SAG Award nominations, one for Best Actor and another for Outstanding Motion Picture Cast Performance as part of the "The Aviator" cast.

In addition to his acting work, DiCaprio launched his own production company, Appian Way. Under the Appian Way banner, he wrote, produced and narrated the acclaimed environmentally themed documentary "The 11th Hour." Among Appian Way's other productions are the aforementioned "Shutter Island" and "The Aviator," as well as "The Ides of March," "Red Riding Hood," "Orphan," "Public Enemies" and the soon to be released "Out of the Furnace" starring Christian Bale and Woody Harrelson and "Runner, Runner" starring Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck.

Born in Hollywood, California, DiCaprio started acting at the age of 14. His breakthrough feature film role came in Michael Caton-Jones' 1993 screen adaptation of Tobias Wolff's autobiographical drama "This Boy's Life." That same year, he co-starred in Lasse Hallstrom's "What's Eating Gilbert Grape," earning his first Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for his performance as a mentally handicapped young man. In addition, he won the National Board of Review Award for Best Supporting Actor and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association's New Generation Award for his work in the film.

In 1995, DiCaprio had starring roles in three very different films, beginning with Sam Raimi's Western, "The Quick and the Dead." He also garnered praise for his performance as drug addict Jim Carroll in the harrowing drama "The Basketball Diaries," and for his portrayal of disturbed pansexual poet Arthur Rimbaud in Agnieszka Holland's "Total Eclipse." The following year, DiCaprio starred in Baz Luhrmann's contemporary screen adaptation of "William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet," for which he won the Best Actor Award at the Berlin International Film Festival. He also joined an all-star ensemble cast in "Marvin's Room," sharing in a SAG Award nomination for Outstanding Motion Picture Cast Performance.

In 1997, DiCaprio starred opposite Kate Winslet in the blockbuster "Titanic," for which he earned a Golden Globe Award nomination. The film shattered every box office record on its way to winning 11 Oscars, including Best Picture. His subsequent film work includes dual roles in "The Man in the Iron Mask"; "The Beach"; Woody Allen's "Celebrity"; Steven Spielberg's "Catch Me If You Can" (receiving a Golden Globe nomination); "Gangs of New York" (his first film for director Martin Scorsese); Ridley Scott's "Body of Lies"; and Sam Mendes' "Revolutionary Road," which reunited DiCaprio with Winslet and brought him his seventh Golden Globe nomination.

DiCaprio is well known for his dedication to the environment on a global scale, producing creative projects such as the documentary "11th Hour," spearheading numerous public awareness campaigns, and launching The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. DiCaprio serves on the boards of World Wildlife Fund, Natural Resources Defense Council, and International Fund for Animal Welfare.
