hearing about Leonardo’s first Oscar in the middle of my midterms studying definitely gave me an extra boost and I can’t help but go search for his acceptance speech. it’s finally here and i feel like he deserves more than one oscar for all his amazing past works but yeah finally! :’)
Good-looking people definitely have an edge over others in terms of capturing attention because people naturally want to watch them, which really helps actors/models in their job. The entertainment industry is flooded with countless attractive people but i feel that only a small proportion fully utilised their x factor, good looks and charms to the fullest, in the most meaningful way possible. And Leonardo DiCaprio in my opinion is the perfect example for someone who knows how to play his strengths for a greater good.
First Oscar after a decade and he set aside his speech to raise awareness about climate change. He’s the kind of actor that I would respect and admire. ❤
