Leonardo DiCaprio Taking A Break: Actor Says He Is 'Worn Out'

In the midst of awards season, one Golden Globe nominee says that it is time for a break.

"I am a bit drained," Leonardo DiCaprio told German publication Bild. "I'm now going to take a long, long break. I've done three films in two years and I'm just worn out."

But rather than spending his break relaxing, DiCaprio says that he will take the time to focus on the environment. "I would like to improve the world a bit," he said. "I will fly around the world doing good for the environment."

While he was beat out by his co-star Christoph Waltz, DiCaprio was recently nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained."

DiCaprio's latest, "The Great Gatsby," hits theaters on May 10.
