Leonardo DiCaprio is unquestionably one of the biggest and most influential movie stars of all time.

When he was just 19 years old, he received an Academy Award nomination for his performance in What's Eating Gilbert Grape, but it wasn't until 1997's Titanic that he became a true phenomenon.

From there, he solidified his status as an A-lister and eventually won the Oscar for Best Actor for his performance in 2015's The Revenant.

DiCaprio has worked with an array of acclaimed directors including Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Christopher Nolan and Quentin Tarantino.
