Brad Pitt is jealous of Leonardo DiCaprio.The 'Babel' actor feels Leonardo - who has been nominated for an Academy Award for his performance in thriller 'Blood Diamond' - has made better choices about the characters he has played. Brad told Newsweek magazine: "I caught myself on the phone the other day. Leo has been playing some real strong men these last few years and I found myself saying, 'I want to play more of a man.' "Despite his resentment, Brad believes his best roles are yet to come. He said: "I got off the phone and I thought, 'No, live like a man, and the movies will follow.' "Leonardo - whose acclaimed films include 'The Departed', 'The Aviator' and 'Gangs of New York' - paid tribute to his colleagues and fellow nominees after receiving an Oscar nomination for Best Actor the other day. He said: "I'm honored to receive this nomination from the Academy -especially in a year full of such worthy nominees. I am also thrilled for my 'Blood Diamond' co-star Djimon Hounsou, as well as Mark Wahlberg and Marty Scorsese, who are all so deserving of this recognition."Djimon Hounsou and Mark Wahlberg have been nominated in Best Supporting Actor category, while Martin Scorsese is up for the Best Director award for 'The Departed'.
