Essential Trivia About Leonardo DiCaprio and his Breakout Role

0

Leonardo DiCaprio is without a doubt one of the most instantly recognizable Hollywood stars alive. Many people do not know it but DiCaprio is one of Hollywood's child prodigies who went on to rise to the very top of the totem pole. But that said, which is his universally acknowledged breakout role in a film?

In 1997 DiCaprio rose to global stardom in James Cameron's epic romance, Titanic, but by then he had already become something of a household name. Indeed, many film critics and Hollywood historians are in agreement that DiCaprio's breakout role was his portrayal of Romeo in Baz Luhrmann's 1996 film, Romeo + Juliet. In the film, DiCaprio is molded in essentially the same cast as the hopeless romantic penned by Shakespeare but with some embellishments. The epic romance occurs in a contemporary setting rather than Verona of antiquity. Romeo meets Juliet and the two fall in love before they come to realize that their families are sworn enemies. While the two meet an unhappy ending as told in the bard's play, there is an interesting twist.
