About Leonardo DiCaprio

When he’s not walking the red carpet, Leonardo DiCaprio is fighting against climate change through meetings with POTUS, UN addresses, and influential documentaries. After winning an Oscar this year for his role in The Revenant, he used his acceptance speech as a platform to address environmental causes and the worsening state of our planet’s health. His newest documentary Before The Flood taps into the global issues that we are all facing with climate change, no matter where you fall on the political spectrum. While he may covet his Academy Award, his finest accomplishment is creating greater awareness for our fragile environment.
