Happy actor Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't mind that he hasn't won an Oscar yet and insists he still hasn't reached his full acting potential yet

Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't mind that he hasn't won an Oscar.

The 34-year-old actor insists he can cope with not being recognised by the Academy Awards because he hasn't yet reached his full potential in the movie industry.

He said: "The truth of the matter is that I have a lot to prove to myself still as an actor. And I still have that kind of thirst to want to do a performance that I'm happy with."

Leonardo, who reunites with 'Titanic' co-star Kate Winslet on new movie 'Revolutionary Road', also revealed he found it "interesting" to see how Kate's attitude to the industry has changed.

He added: "It's interesting to see her after all these years and be in a working environment with her because she's still got that same bizarre professionalism that she had in her early 20s.

"She's still a committed actress, she's still fervent about making every detail of her character come alive, but now she's way more in control of that."
