Leonardo Dicaprio has piped Johnny Depp (one of my favourite actors) as the the most bankable Hollywood actor at the moment. An online article states:
"Leonardo DiCaprio was Hollywood's highest paid actor over the last year as he made an estimated $77 million (£47 million.)" Jeez!
Though surveys and polls change easily in Hollywood, Dicaprio and Depp are two actors I feel know their 'onions' and deserve the credit for their work.
Dicaprio has worked hard over the years (so has Johnny Depp, who I think is one of the most versatile actors out there) and I think he deserves the honour that is coming to him. With great movies to his credit like, The Aviator, Catch Me if you Can, Titanic, The Breach, Romeo and Juliet, just to name a few.
A friend believes: "Leo deserves this one I would say if you ask me, He is a bankable actor, He has matured greatly over the yrs and has had a stellar run in the cut-throat world of Hollywood, just look @ his oeuvre, lets not forget his magazine cover good looks, lol.... He has also managed fame very well..... He just needs an oscar to validate his position among the all time greats"
Few actors in the world have had a career quite as diverse as Leonardo DiCaprio's. DiCaprio has gone from relatively humble beginnings, as a supporting cast member of the sitcom Growing Pains and low budget horror movies, such as Critters 3, to a major teenage heart-throb in the 1990's.
