Leo, the idiot

entertainment Updated: Feb 15, 2010 00:11 IST

Leonardo DiCaprio has a vice he can’t shake — acting like “a complete idiot” with his closest pals.

The Titanic star is often photographed clubbing or enjoying sunshine holidays with beautiful models — but he insists such luxuries allow him to escape his challenging film career and humanitarian efforts.

He explains, “I go out and have a drink every once in a while. Ooh, I know that’s controversial, isn’t it? I sometimes go on a vacation, too. I take what I do very seriously and when I’m on the set, that’s all I focus on. So my vice is to hang out with my friends and talk about absolutely nothing of importance whatsoever and act like a complete idiot because I’ve got to filter out a lot of the serious stuff I’m dealing with all the time.”

He says, “It’s like therapy to just be a complete idiot with my friends. It’s fantastic.”
