Leonardo DiCaprio believes the international fame he received for his starring role in 'Titanic' has affected his personal life
Leonardo DiCaprio thinks appearing in 'Titanic' has affected his personal life.
The 41-year-old actor - who has dated a string of beauties, including Kelly Rohrbach, Toni Garrn, Gisele Bundchen and Bar Refaeli - shot to global fame following his lead role in the 1997 movie and still feels uneasy having so much attention on him.
He said: "It was a surreal point in my life. You become this sort of independent actor and then you are in this one film that for whatever reason connects with people on a worldwide level.
"And you are at this really young age and you don't know how to react to it. My immediate reaction was to stop everything and take a break and let it settle down.
"But it has affected my personal life ever since. I don't think you ever get used to the type of attention certainly the media has on you."
Leonardo faced gruelling conditions working on his latest movie 'The Revenant' and admits it was just as tough shooting 'Titanic', albeit a very different experience.
He told Empire magazine: "They are pretty neck and neck. I couldn't choose between them. They are apples and oranges though, one had a lot of stages, the other was in nature.
"But the film time was equivalent ... Let's put it this way, they were both difficult for different reasons. Although both had cold water."
