Quote of the day: Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio

Have you seen Inception yet? We all know our Do Something Movie Star winner Leonardo DiCaprio is the leading man, but did you know that he brought an extra twist to the movie set during filming? Check out the fun facts he shared in a recent interview.

With a little push from DiCaprio himself, a great deal of the movie was made with solar power! The actor shared, “It’s the first movie I got to do with solar power. I had a conversation about it with Alan Horn, who’s the head of Warner Bros. The generators that we had on the set were all powered by solar energy. It’s going to be a big conversion to do stuff like that every day, not just in making movies but everything in the world.”

The master of Inception added, “We do a lot of things in the world that are wasteful... We keep talking about this all the time. Hopefully, fingers crossed, with these small steps, we’ll make that transition on a much larger scale in the future.”
