How much money does Leonardo DiCaprio have?

Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the highest paid actors in the world . Between January 2013 and 2014 he was able to earn an incredible 60 million euros and left other Hollywood greats like Johnny Depp and Adam Sandler behind. In addition to acting, he has also been working as a film producer since 2005 , which brings him more income and additional income. In addition, the Hollywood star still owns numerous luxury properties and its own island. He was able to build up an estimated fortune of around 235 million euros  .


But Leonardo is not the person who buys luxury yachts and countless sports cars. He lives rather modestly and donates a lot of his money. In 2012 he also supported Barack Obama in his US presidential election. He also founded his own foundation for the rescue of endangered animal species, the “ Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation ” , thereby supporting many environmental protection organizations worldwide. DiCaprio currently ranks third on the Forbes list of the most influential actors in the world. In 2019, he also donated $5 million to save the wildfire-stricken Amazon.

In December 2013 Leo entered motorsport together with Venturi Automobiles and founded his own team in the new FIA Formula E Championship – the first racing series with electric cars , which started in September 2014 for the first time.

Career as an actor

Leonardo DiCaprio’s acting career took off in the late 1980s, where he had a few appearances in commercials and minor roles in educational films and series. He first got his attention in 1993 with the role of Arnie Grape , a handicapped boy, in the film Gilbert Grape – Somewhere in Iowa alongside Johnny Depp. Leonardo’s acting performance was honored with an Oscar nomination in the category “Best Supporting Actor”.

In the years that followed, DiCaprio landed starring roles in several films and became increasingly popular with Hollywood directors. James Cameron hired him in 1997 for his groundbreaking role in Titanic opposite Kate Winslet. Titanic has won eleven Oscars and is the second highest-grossing film of all time to date . Leonardo DiCaprio became a huge teen idol and heartthrob.

Buoyed by his success with Titanic, Leonardo DiCaprio continued to take roles in films such as Celebrity and The Beach, which met with little success. In 2002, Martin Scorsese hired him for his new film Gangs of New York . DiCaprio was finally able to shed his boyish image in the film epic and shine with his serious and brutal leading role as “Amsterdam Vallon”. In the same year he was booked by Steven Spielberg for the film “Catch Me If You Can”.

In 2005 the successful collaboration with Martin Scorsese continued. He re-engaged Leonardo for the lead role in the film The Aviator, for which he received a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor and was nominated for an Oscar in the same category . In 2007, the director and actor filmed Departed. That same year, Leonardo DiCaprio starred in Blood Diamond, for which he again received an Oscar nomination for Best Actor. In 2008 he played leading roles in the drama “Trouble Times” and the thriller “The Man Who Never Lived”.

2010 saw the fifth collaboration with Scorsese in the film “Shutter Island” (4 Oscars) , which, after Titanic, is the most successful film with DiCaprio to date. In early 2011, the successful actor collaborated with Clint Eastwood on the film adaptation of the life of J. Edgar Hoover. Quentin Tarantino would direct DiCaprio in front of the camera for the first time in Django Unchained . In late 2011 and early 2012, Leo took on the role of the Great Gatsby in the film of the same name.

In the film  “The Wolf of Wall Street” he worked for the fifth time with Martin Scorsese and received his Oscar nominations four and five. This time for best actor in the role of Jordan Belfort and as producer for best picture.

In September 2014, filming began on the western thriller The Revenant. The film hit theaters in early 2016 and was an incredible success. Oscar nomination number six was therefore not long in coming. This time, however, actually by winning the coveted trophy.
