For Leonardo DiCaprio, this year’s Golden Globes represented the perfect opportunity to have a rendezvous with his mother rather than with his Victoria’s Secret model girlfriend. The actor displayed his young flame Toni Garrn during the after-party, but the award ceremony was reserved for his mother.
Jordan Belfort’s impersonator went up against fellow actors Christian Bale, Joaquin Phoenix, Oscar Isaac and Bruce Dern and won a statuette for the Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical. Critics have reached the conclusion that The Wolf of Wall Street is one of DiCaprio’s best performances. To the attendants’ delight, the actor toasted the manner in which host Tina Fey announced him “And now, like a supermodel’s vagina, let’s all give a warm welcome to Leonardo DiCaprio.” Known for his Victoria’s Secret angels weakness, the “wolf” was full of gratitude during the event, but only when speaking of his mother. “I wouldn’t be doing any of this if it weren’t for her, both my parents,” DiCaprio said.
The 71st Annual Golden Globes that took place on Sunday, Jan. 12 portrayed a sensitive DiCaprio aware of the fact that his success is credited solely to his mother. “She’s the only reason I’m able to do what I do,” he said. Although the child actor grew up to become an awarded artist, a fate worthy of the name he wears, DiCaprio kept his eyes on the prize. As a result, although Brad Pitt also auditioned for Jordan Belfort’s role, Martin Scorsese was convinced by DiCaprio’s determination. The collaboration between The Wolf of Wall Street‘s leading actor and director Martin Scorsese is not in its first spring. After five movies in which they worked side by side, DiCaprio paid his respects to Scorsese’s genius. “And I got my favorite director in the world, one of my favorite artists of all time, to direct it”, the actor said.
The playboy who never deviates from his love for Victoria’s Secret angels left the thrills of the Golden Globes for his mother, Irmelin. The family of two was all smiles when DiCaprio received his second Golden Globe statuette after a nine-year pause. Although sources say the Golden Globes represent a prelude for the Oscars and DiCaprio could finally go home with the most recognized prize in the world, any uncertainty will be dispersed on March 2.
Sources predict that DiCaprio will bring his lucky charm to the Oscars, too: his mother. Although 21-year old girlfriend Toni Garrn enjoyed the actor’s presence during the second half of the night, the gesture of choosing his mother over his flame was commented by countless sources. Irrespective of the image he created and his love for supermodels, DiCaprio demonstrated his gratitude for the one who always stood in his corner.
DiCaprio is relaxed when it comes to his parent’s reaction to his roles, but displays an unspoken affection toward his mother. “She supported this little kid who said , ‘I want to be an actor’ at 12 years old, which is ridiculous, and she drove me to all these auditions,” the actor said. As his actions demonstrate, blood is thicker than girlfriends.
