Since entering the international stage with his portrayal of a downtrodden artist in “Titanic,” Leonardo DiCaprio has helmed the majority of the films he’s appeared in. From the con artist in “Catch Me If You Can” to the revenge-seeking explorer in “The Revenant,” DiCaprio manages time and time again to artfully portray iconic characters with cross-generational appeal.

We know his roles, we may even follow the tabloids’ latest rumors, but PrettyFamous wanted to identify 25 facts about the highly awarded actor (finally, with an Oscar in hand). We put them in numerical order from smallest to largest, and will count up the facts and figures that define the leading man we all love.
