Every movie Leonardo DiCaprio is in now just screams “PLEASE GIVE ME AN OSCAR!” and it’s just looks so desperate.
And let me tell you why, thirteen-year-old on my dash.
Leonardo DiCaprio consistently chooses (and has consistently chosen) high caliber projects and does his job as an actor pretty astoundingly well every damn time. He appears “desperate” to you because you now associate his otherwise incredible performances with Oscar clips because that is typically the quality of his output, and you’re now judging that output through a lens which has been decided for you by the Academy, which is to say, one that tells you He Historically Will Not Get The Thing, to which you wrongfully assume his attempts are then rendered Pathetic. You see here wherein lies the problem (hint: it’s mostly you.)
So yes, it’s going to seem like he is desperate for an Oscar when really, he’s just being Miley and doing the same damn thing he always does: Crushing It. Leonardo DiCaprio does his own thing. He set the bar that high at a very young age and he aims for it every time. So if you’re looking for some variety, no, you won’t be seeing him cameo in a horror spoof, or captaining a rom-com. That’s not his game. Leo’s game is quality and respect for the craft. To be honest, I hope he never gets that Oscar. At this point, it doesn’t deserve him. (via snowmanoclock)
”To me, what hurts me, is the fact that you are told all the times: “we are equal” like “I don’t know what is your deal” like “what is your fucking issue with this or with that?” but then you realize: no, actually we are not! You are getting paid more than I. You get to have more options in terms of what you want to watch for entertainment. When you go to the movies you have 90 movies. 90 different stories that you can watch through your eyes, through the eyes of a male. And one complain that I might make - one observation - that’s actually very very truth about the fact that there isn’t enough things for us, for women out there it’s like ”shut up!” Why aren’t you happy? Why can’t you just be like every girl? Just… why do you always have to try to be the man? It’s not even about trying to be the man, it’s about trying to feel significant, trying to feel equal, trying to believe that my purpose in life was more than just be half of something else and deliver the packages, the kids to this individual so that they can glorify themselves. By the time of my 30’s and I fall in love and I have a career, I’m gonna be making less than a man, I’m gonna lose my name to a man. […] And by the time that they come back they are unattractive! (x)
