Definitive Proof Leonardo DiCaprio Is an Environmental Superhero

Leonardo DiCaprio turns 42 today (Nov. 11, 2016)! 

It’s no secret that the Oscar-winning actor is a huge environmental activist. DiCaprio’s taken full advantage of his star power by bringing attention to the important causes he supports. With a net worth of $245 million, he’s donated his money to many environmentally-conscious causes. In addition to his work with other charities, he owns the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which “is dedicated to the long-term health and wellbeing of all Earth’s inhabitants.” He cares about the environment, he’s friends with the President and he’s an Academy Award-winning actor, could he be more perfect? He may or may not be single, too! (Who ever really knows if he is or isn’t?)

DiCaprio’s dedicated most of his career to saving the environment, which makes him a real-life superhero. He started his foundation 18 years ago which has been awarded almost $60M in grants since its inception. DiCaprio dedicated his Oscar’s acceptance speech to raising awareness for climate change and continues to raise awareness at his own events. From saving tigers to making the lives of children in developing countries better, he has plenty of accomplishments to celebrate on his birthday this year.

“Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.” – Leonardo DiCaprio
