Sexy Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio is vowing to boycott the paparazzi, calling them "disrespectful and dangerous". The award winning actor, became an international star at the age of 23 after landing the lead role in the 1997 film Titanic alongside Kate Winslet. But DiCaprio is admitting he’s been fighting to stay away from the limelight since turning into a major Hollywood star overnight, and he’s happy to keep his name out of the press. He says, "Actually I’m not in the tabloids anymore. I am sometimes, but I’ve watched the culture change. I’m old hat. And I love it. You know what it is with me? This is something I’d like to clarify. I’ve heard people say, ‘Because you hide, it makes you seem ungrateful.’ "The mere fact that these - I’ll use the word piles - are earning money from exploiting my image is the only reason I hide myself or am not a photo-friendly person. I do not like the way they conduct themselves. I think they’re disrespectful and dangerous. The reason I don’t pose or smile or that I seem mad is that I don’t want them to make a living off my private life."
Editors Note: But you will use the paparazzi to promote your films and projects. Maybe your next premiere everyone in the media should boycott you and then the studios won't hire you because they can't get press for their pictures. Maybe this is the answer Leonardo !

There is a difference between 'photographers' at a red carpet event, such as a movie premeire,and thescumbags 'paparazzi' losers who followed guys like Dicaprio the minute they leave their home until they return.
