One of his most significant financial windfalls came from the 1997 blockbuster Titanic, where his base salary was $2.5 million.

Additionally, he has earned at least $100 million from endorsements, real estate investments, and venture capital stakes.



 

DiCaprio's breakthrough came with his critically acclaimed performance in the 1992 film This Boy's Life. However, it was his role in Titanic that catapulted him to worldwide stardom and firmly established him as a leading man in the industry. He continued to thrive with a string of successful films, including Catch Me If You Can, The Aviator, The Departed, and Inception.

Collaborating frequently with acclaimed director Martin Scorsese, DiCaprio showcased his versatility in movies like Gangs of New York, The Wolf of Wall Street, and The Revenant.

Beyond his acting prowess, Leonardo DiCaprio is known for his unwavering commitment to environmental causes. In 1998, following the success of Titanic, he founded the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, a non-profit organization focused on environmental conservation and sustainability. Over the years, the foundation has donated more than $80 million to support over 70 successful projects in 40 countries, aiming to protect wildlife, restore ecosystems, and combat climate change.



 

DiCaprio is not only an acclaimed actor but also a savvy real estate investor. His real estate portfolio is worth over $100 million and includes properties in various locations. He owns oceanfront homes in Malibu, Hollywood Hills, Palm Springs, and an undeveloped plot of land in Malibu. Additionally, in 2005, he acquired a 104-acre private island in Belize, which he later transformed into an eco-friendly private resort called Blackadore Caye.



 

Throughout his career, DiCaprio has garnered significant attention for his relationships with high-profile models and actresses. His personal life has been relatively private, but he has dated celebrities such as Gisele B√ľndchen, Bar Refaeli, and Camila Morrone. DiCaprio set his sights on Hadid in September, just one month after his previous relationship ended in August 2022 with Camila Morrone, whom he dated for four years, "but she (Hadid) hasn't shown an interest," a source told Marie Claire.
