Leonardo DiCaprio: 'I'm taking a break from movies'

By Gavriella Tjandra,

The Django Unchained star admits that he needs a long break from movie filming to live life and focus on environmental activism.

DiCaprio told a German media caterer, Bild newspaper, that he was exhausted of filming at the moment, reported E! News.

"I am a bit drained," he said.

"I am going to take a long, long break.

"I have done three films in two year, and I'm just worn out."

Looking back to his movie experience for the past years, the actor has been busy shooting three back-to-back movies: Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, that just hit the box office, Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, and Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street.

Taking a long break from movies is not for the 38-year-old actor to stay at home to waste time. He is going to concentrate more on environmental work.

He wishes to raise an awareness for the threat of global warming, a cause that he claims to be close to his heart.

"I would like to improve the world a bit.

"I will fly around the world doing good for the environment."

He then admitted that he had applied environment-friendly technology in his daily life.

"My roof is covered with solar panels.

"My car is electric."

DiCaprio has not just started being active for a cause. He previously contributed to Sean Penn's charity auction for Haiti earthquake victims, The Huffington Post reported.

He won a dinner party with former President Bill Clinton with an initial bid of $100,000, that was combined later with two other rival contenders, and summed up to $400,000.

The charity raised $4 million in total.
