Leonardo DiCaprio, one of the ultimate heartthrobs of Hollywood, may finally win a much desired Oscar (the first of his career) this awards season – and we couldn’t be happier for him!

Here’s 11 times we totally fell head over heels for the angle faced actor (let’s just not talk about the man-bun and beard look of 2014, ok?)

  1. When he danced like this with total conviction, and didn’t care what anybody thought…


  1. When he went on a one-man mission to save the earth!

In 1998, Leo founded The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which is, “dedicated to the long-term health and wellbeing of all Earth’s inhabitants”. In 2013 his foundation gave $3 million to the WWF to protect endangered tigers in Nepal, and this year the actor donated $15 million through his foundation to environmental causes. You go Leo!

  1. Every time we saw him in a tux. Every. Single. Time


  1. The first time we saw this sweet picture of the adorable actor at the start of this career – so cute!


  1. When we found out that unlike so many other Hollywood stars, he has never done drugs

The star had to speak to a drug expert to prepare for his role in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ and he watched a video of “the drunkest man in the world” with co-star Jonah Hill for inspiration for their parts!

  1. Every time his blue eyes sparkled like this…



  1. The time we learnt that the gorgeous actor was German, Bavarian AND Italian – swoon! 


  1. When he still acted graciously the fifth time he lost out on winning an Oscar…



  1. When we found out how he chose to spend his birthday in 2013…

Shunning an exclusive soirée or a party of models on a super yacht (this time at least anyway) Leo chose to celebrate his birthday in 2013 with a charity event that raise $3 million. Niiiice.

  1. When he decided to take his mum as his date to the Golden Globes in 2014…

Leonardo-DiCaprio-and-his-mum …and then went on to thank her in this emotional and heart-felt acceptance speech at the BAFTAs in 2016:

  1. When this cheeky little move happened… 



Leo, can you just stop making us love you so much?!
