Introduction: Are You in the Know About DiCaprio?
"Everywhere I go, people are staring at me. I don't know if people are staring because they recognize me or because they think I'm a weirdo." -- Leonardo DiCaprio
Times sure have changed for Leonardo DiCaprio. A few short months ago he was just one of a huge pack of young Hollywood actors, well known to a small group of fans, but certainly not a household name. Then, along came a billion-dollar blockbuster called Titanic. Suddenly, Leonardo was a major star (if not the major star) in Hollywood, and his world turned upside down. TV commentators spent countless hours speculating whether or not he would attend the 1998 Academy Awards show (he did not) and whether or not he would be partying at New York's Chaos club or Moomba restaurant (he often did). Leo couldn't make a move without the cameras following him. He even had to hire bodyguards to accompany him and his friends on their late-night outings.
Despite the considerable disruption to his private life, Leo is extremely thankful to his fans, because he knows that they are the reason he is where he is today. Of his fame, he'll say only that, "It's cool, but we'll see how it goes." But of his fans he says, "They'll never know how grateful I am for their support."
Are you one of the people who can't get enough of Leonardo DiCaprio? Do you collect his pictures and pin them all over your walls? Do you scribble his name on every page of your notebook? Do you rent his movies and have all-night marathon screenings of This Boy's Life, The Basketball Diaries, and Romeo & Juliet? Were you convinced he was robbed of a Best Actor nomination for Titanic? Are you waiting with baited breath for the release of Woody Allen's new movie, Celebrity, hoping to catch a glimpse of Leo in a cameo role? Do you keep up-to-date on all things DiCaprio, including his likes and dislikes, and the behind-the-scenes secrets from all of his movies?
If you answered yes to those questions, you qualify as a true DiCaprimaniac -- and this book is for you! Pop Quiz: Leonardo DiCaprio is filled with questions about the world's hottest heartthrob, Leonardo DiCaprio. Some of the questions are relatively easy -- others will take Leo know-how of titanic proportions to answer correctly. (We're not even sure his mother could answer all of the questions in this book!) But don't agonize too long over the toughies -- you can always check your answers at the end of each section. And don't forget to total your score at the end of the book, just to see how you measure up to other Leo fans.
So what are you waiting for? Turn the page and let the fun begin!
