Superstar actor Leonardo Dicaprio credits his father GEORGE with keeping him in touch with the real world. The TITANIC star dislikes intrusive Hollywood culture - and relies on his dad to give him a fresh perspective on life. DiCaprio says, "He has always veered me towards things you don't commonly see in the world, and that goes for art and politics. "He's always tried to give me a different perspective, a different outlook on things. He's heavily influenced me in my career as well."
