Leonardo DiCaprio facts
It's common knowledge that Winslet and Leo are still super close, but did you know that in 2012 Leo gave Kate away at her wedding to Ned Rocknroll? Apparently not even her parents were aware of the nuptials!
2. His Oscar Win Almost Broke The Internet
His first ever Oscar win for The Revenant generated 440,000 tweets per minute, making it the most-tweeted Oscar moment of all time.
3. He's A Peachy-Keen Jelly Bean
Leo might look like he's lived the wild life, but apparently he's never taken drugs in his life. For The Wolf Of Wall Street he had to be taught how to act high by drug experts.
4. A Titanic Gesture
On discovering that Millvina Dean, the last remaining survivor of the Titanic, had been forced to sell her memorabilia to pay for her care home, Leo and Kate set up a trust fund so she'd never have to worry about her future again.
5. Save Don's Plum!
In 2001 he starred in a movie called Don's Plum. However, you'd be forgiven for not knowing that, seeing as Leo has banned the film from airing in Canada and the US — seemingly because it depicts him as being a bit of an asshole.

According to reports, when Leo was in utero, his parents were gazing at a Leonardo Da Vinci portrait in Florence, Italy when the bub-to-be first kicked. His father took it as a cosmic sign.
