Can we take a minute to think about how long we’ve all had a crush on Leonardo DiCaprio? DiCaprio’s been making us swoon since his Tiger Beat teen days on “Growing Pains” (ok, so Luke Brower was annoying as hell, but Leo was gosh darn cute!), followed up by impressive and equally crush-inducing roles in flicks like The Basketball Diaries, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and Romeo + Juliet. But it was his turn in—duh—Titanic that made him a household name and made us never let go (ha!) of our crush. Though he was the face of a global phenomenon as Jack Dawson and had plenty of money, opportunities and, likely, women being thrown at him, DiCaprio didn’t go the pretty-faced party boy route, instead choosing to prove his acting chops in dramatic roles in Gangs of New York, Catch Me If You Can and The Departed. And acting chops he’s got—the three-time Oscar nominee is one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood, which luckily for us means even more screen time of this handsome face!
