Leonardo DiCaprio has revealed his plans to take a breather away from the screen.
The 38-year-old actor, who next stars in Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, admitted he wants a few months off so he can "do other things".
He told Extra: "Right now it's about getting a little breather - getting some time off to do some environmental work, stuff away from making movies. I did three films in a row, back to back to back... Not a permanent break or not an indefinite period, but you know, just a few months off to do some other things."
The actor said he has had to "adjust" to his personal life becoming public, but added: "I'm privileged to do what I do.
"There's a certain price to everything, but every time I listen to myself talk about those prices I get sick to my stomach because I'm so fortunate to do what I do, really I'm a lucky person and I have absolutely nothing to complain about.
"[A lack of privacy is] always something that's synonymous with becoming an actor but that's a conscious choice, too - you know that if you're going to venture into this world your private life is going to become public. But like I said, you adapt to those circumstances."
