However, things just didn't work out, and now is

Leonardo DiCaprio wants us all to know that he isn't exactly the Wolf of Wall Street in real life!
We reported earlier how Leo has denied ever doing cocaine, and now, in a recent interview, he's come out saying that all drugs have been off limits for him.
"Never done it. That's because I saw this stuff literally every day when I was 3 or 4 years old. So Hollywood was a walk in the park for me…. I'd go to parties and it was there and, yeah, there's that temptation. Hollywood is a very volatile place where artists come in and they essentially say they want to belong. It's incredibly vulnerable to be an actor and also get criticism at a young age when you're formulating who you are. We've seen a lot of people fall victim to that, and it's very unfortunate."
Looks like the only mind-blowing he's ever done was in Inception!
We know how tough Leo had it growing up next to junkies, but we're happy that his childhood made him stay away from any and all drugs!
With the tragic loss of Philip Seymour Hoffman, we hope that those in the entertainment industry who do partake in drug use put their habit or addiction into perspective and get help! Life is so short!
