Leonardo DiCaprio: I'll get married one day

Newly-single Leonardo DiCaprio is refusing to rule marriage out of his future, insisting "that time will come".
The Wolf of Wall Street star was recently reported to have parted ways with model/actress Kelly Rohrbach late last year
, after dating for around five months.
She joined the likes of Gisele Bundchen, Blake Lively, Bar Refaeli, Toni Garrn, and Erin Heatherton on Leonardo's list of stunning exes, but despite his latest love split, Hollywood's famous bachelor still has hopes of one day settling down.
"That time will come when that time comes," the 41-year-old tells Parade magazine. "The truth is, you can't predict marriage. You can't plan it. It's just going to happen when it happens."
Leonardo is instead choosing to focus on his career as his work allows him to escape the monotony of everyday life, even though he is still baffled by the intensity of his fame.
"If I wanted to quit acting, I could have done it a long time ago," he explains. "I love making movies. I feel lucky and fortunate to do it, and it is absolutely worth sacrificing a lot of my private life.
"I don't think anyone (famous) ever really gets used to it. It's always surreal. At the end of the day, there are people with much harder jobs who sacrifice a lot more of their own lives to do them, people in the armed forces. I don't want to hear myself complain about the hardships of being famous - because I do have the freedom to stop, if I wanted to..."
"Life can get pretty monotonous," Leonardo continues. "Acting is like living multiple lives. When you make a movie, you go off to different places, live different cultures, investigate somebody else's reality, and you try to manifest that to the best of your ability. It is incredibly eye-opening. That's why I love acting. There's nothing as transformative as what a film, a documentary, can do to get people to care about something else besides their own lives."
He concludes, "My dad always told me, 'Go out there, son, and whatever you do, I don't care if you're successful or not, just have an interesting life. Just be happy to put your pants on in the morning.' I believe I'm doing that."
