Test Your Leonardo DiCaprio Knowledge With These Titanic Leo Facts

Subscribe to 98.1 The Hawk on

Today, Leonardo DiCaprio is a household name; the man is one of the biggest and most beloved movie stars in the world. But did you know that when DiCaprio was first starting out as a child actor an agent tried to convince him to change his name? It’s true; if this agent had his way Leonardo DiCaprio could have been known the world over as “Lenny Williams,” because that sounded “familiar” and had a “friendly ring to it.” That’s just one of the titanic (sorry) Leonardo DiCaprio facts in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!

DiCaprio is a well-known environmentalist, but he goes even further; his house is powered by solar panels, he drives electric cars, and he owns an island (the whole, entire freaking island!) off the coast of Belize, which he is transforming into an “eco-friendly resort.” The island, named “Blackadore Caye,” is set to open to the public in 2018, and will feature artificial reefs, a nursery to grow local marine grass, and a manatee conservation area.

‘You Think You Know Movies?’ is a ScreenCrush original series that dives deep into the cinematic worlds of your favorite movies and freeze frames a few tidbits you might not have known. We’ve already tackled Star Wars, The Avengers and Spider-Man, but now it’s all about Leo with these DiCaprio facts. Watch more installments of ‘You Think You Know Movies?’ below and let us know in the comments what movies we should cover next.
