As Russia is actively rooting for Leonardo DiCaprio, who is nominated for an "Oscar" (for his role in the movie "The Revenant"), he, in turn, shared his further creative plans with the journalists. As it turned out, a Hollywood star would love to play Vladimir Putin, the actor told German newspaper Die Welt in an interview. Also Leo expressed respect for such figures of the Russian history, as Lenin and Rasputin.

DiCaprio talked about his personal encounter with Putin. As an environmental activist he participated in the forum on saving the Siberian tigers in 2010. And din't miss the opportunity to talk with the Russian President. Recalling that meeting, the actor admits: he has extreme respect for the Russian leader. 

By the way, Leonardo DiCaprio is generally known for his great love for Russia and Russian history. The actor even has Russian ancestors. In particular, his grandmother Elizaveta Smirnova.
