The world’s most favorite, beloved and Oscar winner actor Leonardo DiCaprio has to something about his retirement. Leonardo DiCaprio is back on the silver screen as a struggling star of 1960s, Once upon Time in Hollywood. Leonardo will perform as a struggling actor Rick Dalton in Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film. It will be the first time that we see Leo and Brad Pitt star in the same movie as the latter plays Rick’s handsome stunt double, Cliff Booth. Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio said that he will keep waiting for good projects when he will be less wanted in the industry.
In the recent interview, he was asked about one of the most burning questions. Is Leonardo thinking of early retirement as well? To this, the actor revealed, “I mean, I suppose at some point I might retire, but I’ve always looked at this as the greatest gift that anyone’s ever given me. I feel like I won the lotto, so I’m going to keep going as long as they’ll have me.”

Afterward, in an earlier interview, Leo’s co-star Brad had stated that according to him, Hollywood is a younger man’s game. “I just feel, the game itself, it’ll move on naturally. There will be a natural selection to all,” Pitt had stated.
On the other hand, DiCaprio added, “I wait. I wait around until something good pops up,” the actor told Variety on being asked what he would do when he is not as wanted as he is now a la the character in his forthcoming film. “I know there are ebbs and flows in everyone’s careers, sometimes they’re a little hotter, sometimes you may not be hot at all, but if you love what you do, you gotta just keep doing it.”
Besides that, the movie also stars Brad Pitt who is playing the role of DiCaprio’s sidekick, stunt double and best friend.
The movie also stars Margot Robbie and Luke Perry among others. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood also marks Luke Perry’s final role prior to his death in March. The film was first screened at the Cannes International Film Festival 2019 and has reportedly earned a huge appreciation.
