INFIDELITY WEBSITE'S TOP OSCAR AFFAIR PICKS

****
Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio
the most desirable from the Oscars 2014
****


Leonardo DiCaprio



Just in time for the 2014 Oscars, leading infidelity website Victoria Milan has released survey results concerned which 4,000 of its members would choose for their dream affair. Both female and male members participated in this vote to decide who would win in the Hottest Actor and Hottest Actress categories.




Cheating females on Victoria Milan chose four-time nominee Leonardo DiCaprio as their top choice for a love affair with 27% of the votes. This time nominated for The Wolf of Wall Street, DiCaprio has been a favourite of the cheating housewife since Titanic. Men frequenting VM overwhelmingly chose the fresh and beautiful 23 year-old Jennifer Lawrence, nominated for her role in American Hustle. Perhaps her tough girl debut set against her feminine beauty is what does it for cheating men; whatever it is, she received a staggering 48% of the votes.




In second place unfaithful women chose British Oscar veteran Cristian Bale, nominated for American Hustle, with 20% of the votes; third place with 19% of the vote was won by Matthew McConaughey, nominated for his role as an AIDS patient in Dallas Buyers Club.




Although Jennifer Lawrence left her competition in the dust for this vote, 15% of cheating men chose Julia Roberts, nominated for her role in August: Osage County. Amy Adams, nominated for her sexy role in American Hustle, followed in third place with 12% of the male vote.

THE GREAT GATSBY AND ICON LEONARDO DICAPRIO

****
BOOKS
****

Leonardo DiCaprio





“I lived in every capital of Europe, collecting jewels, hunting big game, and painting a little,” Leonardo DiCaprio smoothly says as Jay Gatsby in the new film sensation The Great Gatsby-out May 10th. The same sentiment of grandeur can be said for Leonardo DiCaprio’s own life.



In a changing world filled with one-hit actors and fleeting overnight celebrities, DiCaprio has remained on top as a Hollywood star in every sense of the word for the last fifteen years.


In 1998, when Titanic was christened the top grossing film of all time, there wasn’t a newsstand that didn’t feature his photograph on a magazine cover. Thanks to DiCaprio’s star making role in Titanic, Hollywood had found a new cinematic sensation.



Ever since his performance in Titanic, everything Leonardo touches turns to “gold,” and fortunately for him, he has never been shy to make edgy film choices. With his recent back-to-back trio of critically acclaimed hit films—Inception, J. Edgar, and Django Unchained—and now the seasons highly anticipated The Great Gatsby (with The Wolf of Wall Street waiting in the wings), Leonardo is officially acknowledged as being a true “movie idol.”



With this lavishly illustrated Event Bookazines, New York Times best-selling DiCaprio biographer Mark Bego pens the ultimate publication leading you on the epic journey that has been the life of one of Hollywood’s most shining stars. This is a read for fans and enthusiasts alike. This is “Leonardo DiCaprio”

LEONARDO DICAPRIO TALKS TO ESQUIRE MAGAZINE

****
THE ESQUIRE INTERVIEW
****

Leonardo DiCaprio




Leonardo DiCaprio is the cover subject of the May issue of Esquire, on stands April 23rd. In the interview, he opens up about having thought of himself as the underdog at the start of his career, navigating his success, and his single status.



“I always thought of myself as the underdog, because I didn’t have nice enough clothes or maybe my hair didn’t look good. And so you have to understand – getting your foot in the door is like winning the lottery. It’s literally like winning the lottery if you get to have a career. And I’ve always felt, Okay, now I’ve gotten this shot, and I’m lucky to have gotten this shot, and if I don’t do this to the best of my ability – if I don’t work my ass off and make a life of it – I’ve squandered this incredibly golden opportunity. And that’s always been what has propelled me.”



On navigating his early success, “I really didn’t understand what fame was and I didn’t understand what being in a giant hit was and I didn’t understand what a giant hit Titanic was compared to other giant hits. There was no rule book. There was nobody to navigate me through the experience of being watched all the time and nobody to tell me how to be normal when everybody is acting and looking at me differently.”



On relationships, “Six months of being on location or being off in Morocco or someplace like that is not the best thing for a relationship.”

MOVIE IDOL LEONARDO DICAPRIO IN GREAT GATSBY

****
THE GLORIOUS CORNER

Story By: G. H. Harding
****

Leonardo DiCaprio



LEO’S RIDE --- “I lived in every capital of Europe, collecting jewels, hunting big game, and painting a little,” Leonardo DiCaprio smoothly says as Jay Gatsby in the forthcoming film sensation The Great Gatsby. The same sentiment of grandeur can be said for Leonardo DiCaprio’s own life. In a changing world filled with one-hit actors and fleeting overnight celebrities, DiCaprio has remained on top as a Hollywood star in every sense of the word for the last fifteen years. In 1998, when Titanic was christened the top grossing film of all time, there wasn't a newsstand that didn't feature his photograph on a magazine cover. Thanks to DiCaprio’s star making role in Titanic, Hollywood had found a new cinematic sensation. Ever since his performance in Titanic, everything Leo touches turns to “gold,” and fortunately for him, he has never been afraid to make edgy film choices. With his recent back-to-back trio of critically acclaimed hit films —Inception, J. Edgar, and Django Unchained—and now the spring 2013 season’s highly anticipated The Great Gatsby, Leonardo is officially acknowledged as being a true “movie idol.”

New pub-firm, Event Bookazines has teamed with New York Times best selling DiCaprio biographer Mark Bego to produce the ultimate publication on the epic journey that has been the life of one of Hollywood’s most shining stars. This is a read for fans and enthusiasts alike. At the end of the month, watch for Leonardo DiCaprio: Movie Idol. We've seen it … pure Leo gold!





STEPHEN STILLS --- I was in college (1971) when I went to see a sold-out show by Stephen Stills at Madison Square Garden. The hall was packed (22,000) and Stills, believe it or not, opened the show by himself, surrounded by a battery of guitars. I don’t know whether it was drink, drugs, or some other reason, but he was erratic, he wasn’t signing totally on key, yet … I couldn’t take my eyes off him. Nor could the audience. An amazing performer in almost every sense; his music, from his days with Buffalo Springfield, to his many incarnations with mates Crosby, Stills and Nash (and, sometimes Young), and perhaps his most creative period with his group Manassas . Rhino Records has just released a 4-CD compilation on his career entitled Carry On. It is a dizzying ride, with almost everything he has released, included here (songs with Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton). There’s a 113-page booklet jammed full of notes and details. There’s no denying his talent here; his songs “Dark Star,” “Fishes And Scorpions,” “To A Flame,” “It Doesn’t Matter,” “Colorado,” and “Change Partners” just brimming with originality. It’s amazing he does so many things so well. It also harks back to a time when artists actually rote their own material, as well as performed it. A great ride.

LEONARDO DICAPRIO TO LEAD ANIMAL RIGHTS

Leonardo DiCaprio



IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare) today announced that actor and activist Leonardo DiCaprio will lead its Animal Action campaign to save elephants and shut down the cruel international ivory trade. The campaign launched this week as part of an annual international education program that reaches seven million teachers, students and their families in more than 15 countries worldwide.



DiCaprio serves as the global ambassador for the program, which highlights a different animal and conservation theme each year. This year’s theme is “Elephants, Never Forget,” and focuses on the crisis that elephants face 20 years after the international ivory trade ban was put in place.



While elephant populations started to recover following the ban, lax poaching oversight over the past several years has led to the prospect of extinction for the species in several African countries.



Over the course of the year, IFAW will collect one million signatures urging governments to oppose any further international trade in ivory and step up efforts to combat poaching.



“The ivory trade fuels conflict and strife,” said DiCaprio. “Elephants are killed by poachers so their tusks can be traded for weapons and drugs by international criminal organizations before becoming trinkets and jewelry for consumers. Authorities in 85 countries have seized almost 400 tons of ivory on the black market since the 1989 ivory trade ban.”



Poaching by international syndicates may be more intense now than ever before. In the past century, the number of elephants in the wild has declined by a staggering 50 percent.



Yet, recent public polling shows that many don’t understand the deathly implications of elephant poaching. The poll, conducted by TNS on behalf of IFAW, found that 31 percent of people in the UK, 27 percent in Germany, 23 percent in the U.S. and 38 percent in Australia think that an elephant doesn’t have to die for its tusks to be removed. And in China, the world’s largest market for illegal ivory, 70 percent of consumers were unaware that elephants are killed for their ivory, according to a 2007 IFAW study.



“Many people around the world still have no idea that elephants are killed for their ivory tusks, and that’s why public education is so important,” DiCaprio added. “There were 1.3 million elephants in 1979; rampant poaching and other factors have reduced that by more than half, to an estimated 500,000.”



“We are honored to have Leonardo’s support for our Animal Action campaign to stem the ivory trade,” said IFAW President and CEO Fred O’Regan. “With his help, we hope to create a groundswell for elephant protection that can’t be ignored.”



The Animal Action program provides free education packs, films, advocacy activities and special events that celebrate elephants, introduce young people to the threats they face and empower them to take action.




About IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare)



Founded in 1969, IFAW saves animals in crisis around the world. With projects in more than 40 countries, IFAW rescues individual animals, works to prevent cruelty to animals, and advocates for the protection of wildlife and habitats.

LEONARDO DICAPRIO ON HOLLYWOOD LEGENDS

Leonardo DiCaprio


Sexy star Leonardo DiCaprio says he understands the struggle some Hollywood legends face when their careers start to go down hill, and is insisting it is very easy for stars to become detached from reality. Leonardo became one of Hollywood's hottest leading men after starring in James Cameron's record breaking "Titanic," and has proved to be a hit at the box office ever since. But DiCaprio doesn't take his popularity for granted, insisting he can see how stars become "nuts" after falling for their own hype. He tells "Access Hollywood," "Just because you've done a good performance once, doesn't mean you're always going to be good. That's why some of the greatest actors in the world have gone a little bit nuts. They're saying to themselves, 'What happened? You used to love me?' "It's an easy trap to fall into. You just have to realize that when you're hot, you're hot, and when you're not, you're not."

LEONARDO DICAPRIO ABOUT RIVER PHOENIX

River Phoenix


Superstar Leonardo Dicaprio is regretting not introducing himself to River Phoenix at a Halloween party, because hours later, Phoenix lost his life outside a Los Angeles California nightclub. DiCaprio was at the beginning of his Hollywood career when he spied his longtime hero Phoenix was at a party on Halloween night. The up and coming star, who was 18 at the time, was desperate to corner his idol for a chat but didn’t have time to approach Phoenix before he left the bash. And DiCaprio will always remember the missed opportunity, because 23-year-old Phoenix collapsed and died from a drug overdose outside the Viper Room a few hours later. He tells Esquire magazine, "When I was eighteen, River Phoenix was far and away my hero. Think of all those early great performances - My Own Private Idaho, Stand by Me. I always wanted to meet him. One night, I was at this Halloween party, and he passed me. He was beyond pale - he looked white. Before I got a chance to say hello, he was gone, driving off to the Viper Room, where he fell over and died.

Editors Note: I met River Phoenix at Gay night at the Limelight nightclub. He was not so nice. He was with friends and they were all wasted to the hill. I asked for his photo and he was so nasty and he gave me some wild drugged out photo with his hands like claws. Was yelling "Is this what you want." He and his friends then went into the gay sex backroom, behind the VIP area. Those were the days when anything went in New York City. Over the years, I kept misplacing the pic, it was like bad karma. It is once again missing. So Leonardo, since you were beginning your career, and if you were introduced to River, he either would have been nasty or thought you were cute and been super nice.
