Dicaprio: 'Shooting Movies Is Like Going To College'
Leonardo Dicaprio has no plans to ditch acting for college because he gets all the education he needs preparing for new film roles.
The Titanic actor has boosted his brain-power over the years through thorough research, gaining a new area of expertise every time accepts a role.
He tells Empire magazine, "Every movie I do - like Gangs of New York and The Aviator - is like taking a college course on that subject matter, and each time I've gotten involved with these movies it's been like a giant tutorial.
"You have to be a detective and you have to investigate. You have to be a historian in that regard, so, yeah, it's like taking courses, which is great, 'cause I never went to college."
