Leonardo DiCaprio: This is my year

Leonardo DiCaprio has revealed he is planning to start "taking care of myself".
The Shutter Island star confesses he loves to party, and takes his work extremely seriously, but reaching 35 has made him assess his priorities.
Leo told the Daily Telegraph: "This year is going to be the year of really taking care of myself because I've reached 35 and I've taken a lot of things seriously, maybe too seriously at times, so I'm going to make sure that whatever I do next and whatever choices I make are really right for me, and we'll see where that takes me."
The multi Oscar-nominated actor - who is back with on/off girlfriend Bar Rafaeli - understands it's important to enjoy himself.
He joked: "I go out and have a drink every once in a while - Ooh, I know that's controversial, isn't it? I sometimes go on a vacation, too.
"I take what I do very seriously, and when I'm on the set that's all I focus on, so my vice is to hang out with my friends and talk about absolutely nothing of importance whatsoever and act like a complete idiot because I've got to filter out a lot of the serious stuff I'm dealing with all the time.
"It's like therapy to just be a complete idiot with my friends and it's fantastic."
