The only thing I wish Leo did was go back to having a fun personality. He is serious all the time and not that his movies aren't phenominal and he's a brilliant actor, but I enjoyed seeing him enjoying every aspect off camera.

To faggotjackson:Obviously, you may be in the same class that you are "supposing" Leo to be. Wimpy? Girlfriend? Are you sure you're looking at Leonardo & not someone else?From a strictly hetrosexual female point of view, he is as sexy as they come...with eyes to melt any woman's heart, a perfect jawline, & a personality to match any hetrosexual male, he is ALL MAN...& the women he dates only wish they could hang onto him.
