Leonardo DiCaprio Rolling Stone Aug. 5 2010 “Inception” Star Leonardo DiCaprio On Avoiding Hollywood’s Dark Side

Inception star Leonardo DiCaprio considers himself pretty lucky to have avoided becoming a fallen Hollywood child star, particularly given his early days as a partier and a self-proclaimed “punk.”

DiCaprio tells Rolling Stone Magazine: “I got to be wild and nuts, and I didn’t suffer as much as people do now, where they have to play it so safe that they ruin their credibility. I didn’t care what anyone thought,” Leo explains.

The Titanic actor was quick never to push too far into the Tinseltown abyss: “It was also about avoiding the tornado of chaos, of potential downfall. My two main competitors in the beginning, the blond-haired kids I went to audition with, one hung himself and the other died of a heroin overdose… I was never into drugs at all. There aren’t stories of me in a pool of my own vomit in a hotel room on the Hollywood Strip.”
