For some reason people think I'm joking when I say he's my favorite actor. I don't know why! He's great!
When he was in Growing Pains I wrote him a letter. Every once in a while my parents would let me get one of those teen magazines and they had addresses for stars, where you could send fan mail. Kids are sooo spoiled these days, with email, twitter and facebook and all that. The stars all seem so much more accessible now. Maybe that's part of the problem. I don't know. We aren't here to talk about the media and celebrity. We're here to talk favorite actor. Yeah, I sent him a letter way back in the day. I didn't hear back from him. I sent a few letters when I was a kid. I sent a letter to NKOTB asking if they would please give me a million dollars to buy this cool house. There was this house I thought was awesome, I asked my mom how much it cost, she said "probably like a million dollars." So off goes the letter. (Update: They didn't give it to me...yet) You know who did reply to me? Ralph Macchio's publicist sent me a signed head shot. It said, "Best wishes, Ralph Macchio" Years after the letter, but that doesn't matter.
ANYWAYS, back to Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio. Yes, favorite actor. He's just amazing. He has the best scream. Instead of me describing him I'll show you video evidence of greatness.
