Potential future Oscar winner, Leonardo "I've Almost Died Four Times (opens in new tab)" DiCaprio just gave a riveting interview (opens in new tab) in which he revealed several important tidbits about himself.
1) He spent his formative months with a terrifying Hieronymus Bosch painting hanging above his crib. "You literally see Adam and Eve being given paradise," Leo says. "Then you see in the middle, this overpopulation and excess...then the last panel is just a burnt-down apocalypse. That was my favorite painting."
Just let that sit in for a sec while staring at this gif:
Ok cool, so to reiterate: baby Leo gazed at Dutch art while the rest of us were stacking blocks and being basic. Moving on.
2) Speaking of babies, Leo wants some. Or, at least, he isn't horrified by the idea. When asked if he'd like to start a family, The Revenant star said, "Do you mean do I want to bring children into a world like this? If it happens, it happens. I'd prefer not to get into specifics about it, just because then it becomes something that is misquoted. But yeah. I don't know. To articulate how I feel about it is just gonna be misunderstood."
What is clear is that Leo has a lot of feelings—secretive as they may be—so don't be surprised if he produces an heir. Although, who needs a baby when you have an Oscar to gaze at adoringly all day, amirite?
