Got Abused in "The Basketball Diaries"

Leo played as Jim Caroll, a high school basketball star. Pressured by a wicked coach and a concerned mother, Jim develops an appetite for heroin. In the movie, Jim is even abused by his coach.

All happen in Titanic (1997).

Got Arrested in "Catch Me If You Can"

Leo played as Frank Abagnale, Jr. who worked as a doctor, a lawyer, and as a co-pilot for a major airline, all before his 18th birthday. A master of deception, he was also a brilliant forger, whose skill gave him his first real claim to fame: At the age of 17, Frank Abagnale, Jr. became the most successful bank robber in the history of the U.S. FBI Agent Carl Hanratty makes it his prime mission to capture Frank and bring him to justice, but Frank is always one step ahead of him.

Reunited with Kate but She Had an Abortion and Died

12 years after Titanic, the couple reunited in Revolutionary Road (2008) but seems like this time is not to make up for the tears we shed in Titanic. Kate got an Oscar nomination, but at least, Leo did not have to die in the movie.

Shutter Island, this movie is just mind-blowing!

Playing as a lonely millionaire living in the captivating world of the wealthy in The Great Gatsby still does not help him change his fate.

The Wolf of Wall Street is a great movie, Leo. But Matthew McConaughey deserved the Oscar with his performance in Dallas Buyers Club.

The Revenant and His Misery is Pushed to Extreme

He risked hypothermia on a regular basis, he ate a raw bison liver, he had to simulate getting attacked by a bear, he worked through sick days, etc
