Hollywood heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio says he does not consider the award when he signs up to take on a role. The J Edgar star, who has been nominated for three
Oscars in his career, said he prefers to think about the people he will work with, Contactmusic reported.
"I don't think I ever expected anything like an Oscar ever, to tell you the truth. That is not my motivation when I do these roles. I really am motivated by being able to work with great people and create a body of work that I can look back and be proud of," he said.
The 37-year-old actor is always grateful when people are talking about movies he is in, but has come to learn not all of his films will be a success in the eyes of audiences. "I have learned from my experiences in this industry that there is absolutely no way to control people's opinions on your performance in your movie.
"You go out there, promote your film and hope people like the work you did. But they're going to respond the way they're going to respond when they're in a room with that ballot," he added.
