Leonardo DiCaprio has said he will always be driven to "produce great work".

The Hollywood star recently announced he was taking a break because he is "worn out" after working on big films including The Great Gatsby, The Wolf Of Wall Street and Oscar-nominated Django Unchained. But in a new interview he revealed he will always have the desire to make movies, reports Just Jared.

Leo, who is also committed to his environmental work, told August Man magazine: "My goal is to keep doing great work... I haven't stopped yet and hopefully the work will never stop. While I'm here, I will always have that drive to not only produce great work, but to make a difference in the world."

The 38-year-old said it had always been his dream to become an actor.

He said: "I came from a lower middle-class background where, for me, being an actor never seemed like an achievable dream. Once I got my first opportunity to work on a movie, it's really been a mad rush to fulfill that dream.

"As an actor, I do everything possible to tell a great story in a truly artistic way. But at the end of the day you never know how critics and audiences are going to respond. It's always an eternal sort of mystery in making movies, and that's the great fun, challenge and excitement about doing what I do."
