Hey Leonardo has an interesting interview with Leonardo DiCaprio. I'll admit, I've only read a tiny bit of it, but the bit I read was interesting.

For instance, he essentially turned down the following roles:
Robin in Batman Forever
Anakin Skywalker

Now, I don't know that much about Leo, but he seems to have made smart career moves over the years, those included. It's tempting to think he could have improved the Star Wars prequels, but if George Lucas can coax horrible performances out of Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor, one assumes he could have gotten one out of Leo too.

There's a theory, that of course I can't find on the internet right now, that people stop maturing the moment they become famous. They're locked into whatever maturity level they were at when they hit it big. That makes a lot of sense. Michael Jackson was forever a 6-year-old. Tommy Lee Jones didn't become famous until he was in his 30's or 40's and it shows.

Leo (who incidentally is the same age as yours truly) became famous pretty young, so I'd expect him to be more f-d up. Except that, even when he was in his 20's, he seemed like he was in his 40's.

Why am I musing on Leonardo DiCaprio? I have no idea.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
