We have a bone to pick with the folks at Esquire. Okay, so we know that the mag's most recent Q&A entitled
Leonardo DiCaprio Is A Man
is technically correct (he's nearing 40, after all) — but, you can't deny that this dude has boyish charm on lock-down.
According to the interview, DiCap came in street clothes that confirm our theory: The collar of his T-shirt didn't quite line up with the collar of the checked shirt he wore over it. That, in addition to the fact that his posture was "all twisty," (Esquire's words, not ours!) seems to contradict the meat and potatoes (that this gent's gearing up for the next chapter of his life) of the feature. He reveals: "Hey, look, I'm pretty well-formed as an adult now. I don't have to impress anybody. You ask yourself these different questions: 'What do I want to do?' Interesting question: 'What do I want to do? What makes me really happy?'" He goes on to admit that he feels much more comfortable in his own skin during the past few years than ever before. We're thinking that the new girlfriend doesn't hurt the cause...
To compliment (or contradict, whichever way you see it) the serious nature of the quotes, Esquire styled DiCaprio in some dressed-down duds and handed him the keys to a few retro rides. Naturally, a slew of on-the-road snaps ensued. Who agrees that he probably learned a thing or two from his turn as Jay Gatsby? (Esquire)
