Leonardo DiCaprio has revealed that he prefers to think about the people he will work with instead of the awards he might bag when he signs up to take on a role.
The 'J. Edgar' star, who has been nominated for three Oscars in his career, prefers to think about the people he will work with instead of the possibility of being critically acclaimed for his parts.
"I don't think I ever expected anything like an Oscar ever, to tell you the truth. That is not my motivation when I do these roles. I really am motivated by being able to work with great people and create a body of work that I can look back and be proud of," Contactmusic reported him as telling the Scotsman newspaper.
Although, the 37-year-old actor is always grateful when people are talking about movies he is in, but has realized that not all of his films will be a success in the eyes of audiences.
"I have learned from my experiences in this industry that there is absolutely no way to control people's opinions on your performance in your movie," he said.
"You go out there, promote your film and hope people like the work you did. But they're going to respond the way they're going to respond when they're in a room with that ballot. I'm thankful people are talking about it in that capacity, but ultimately I truly have no control over it," he added.
