Leonardo Dicaprio is nearly 40 years old, and has had quite the career. His new film The Wolf of Wall Street is out now, but it was a full 16 years ago that one of his biggest films, Titanic, was released. DiCaprio came away from the film with more than a great experience — he also made a lifelong friend.

DiCaprio again worked with his Titanic costar Kate Winslet, in 2008's Revolutionary Road, and has stayed great friends with the actress.
"She's the greatest person. She's so genuine. I love that girl," he told USA Today. "She has a brand-new baby and is in love."
Winslet just gave birth to her third child, Bear, a year after marrying her third husband Ned Rocknroll. DiCaprio's love life has gone in a very opposite direction, and he remains one of the most-eligible bachelors in Hollywood.
He seems focused on his career though. DiCaprio is known for his extensive research on his roles, and admits he spent a fair amount of time on trading room floors preparing for The Wolf of Wall Street.
"I wasn't incognito. I couldn't be. I was there, walking around," he explained, saying he was too well-known to go unnoticed.

Although his character wasn't the best guy, he knows there are a lot of traders who are out there working hard every day, saying, "There's a lot of guys that are doing a lot of great stuff and are responsible."
The Wolf of Wall Street is in theaters now.
