Leonardo DiCaprio shows support to Jane Fonda
During his winning speech at the Oscars too, when he won the best actor award for ‘The Revenant’, he highlighted the dangers of climate change.
The Revenant actor was recently seen showing support to the popular actor and environmentalist Jane Fonda, on one of his latest Instagram posts. In it, Leonardo DiCaprio is seen promoting an upcoming book by Fonda “What can I do? The path from climate despair to action” which was released on 7th September.
It’s not new for the ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ actor to show solidarity to climate change issues. During his winning speech at the Oscars, when he won the best actor award for ‘The Revenant’, he highlighted the dangers of climate change and how 2015 was the hottest year till that time. He also spoke about how people shouldn’t take our mother Earth for granted and collectively start to make change. Many agree that his speech took political angles as well, when he urged everyone in the audience to stand along with leaders who weren’t greedy but supported humanity.
For a cause
So, given that he’s chosen to take the activist route for quite a few years now, this new post promoting Jane Fonda’s new book only strengthens his image in the eyes of the media and public as someone who deeply cares about nature.
The actor, in the past, has starred in box office hits like ‘Django Unchained’, ‘Once upon a time in Hollywood’ and ‘Inception’. The superstar was quite popular for not having been able to win an Academy award, despite his iconic movie ‘The Titanic’. However, the Great Gatsby star did break that curse and finally won an Oscar at the 2016 Academy Awards, making all his fans feel victorious, ever since his ‘Titanic’ made a record for becoming one of the highest grossing movies of all time.
The BAFTA best actor award winner is set to take the light-hearted route and appear in “Don’t Look Up”, which is a comedy movie starring the superstar Cate Blanchett. Another extremely promising future project of the actor includes a movie by the legendary director Martin Scorsese. What’s the movie called you ask? “Killers of the Flower Moon”, whose date is yet to be fixed but we do know that it stars the Hollywood living legend, Robert DE Niro!
