Leonardo DiCaprio credits mother for success

leonardo-dicaprio-he-weinstein-company-netflix-2014_4022183 Speaking backstage after the Golden Globe ceremony, Leonardo DiCaprio said he is thankful to his mom for making it possible for him to become an actor.

His mother Irmelin was very supportive and even encouraged him to pursue his dreams as an actor at a young age.

DiCaprio told Access Hollywood: ”I wouldn’t be doing any of this if it weren’t for her, both my parents. She supported this little kid who said, ‘I want to be an actor,’ at 12 years old, which is ridiculous, and she drove me to all these auditions. She’s the only reason I’m able to do what I do.”

    Leonardo DiCaprio definitely deserves this award and it was so sweet he has thanked his mom for her job done when he was twelve and said he wanted to become and actor. No matter how stupid this sounded then, his mom believed in him and did everything to assist the young talent to become and actor. The result we all can se now. Congratulations, Leo!
