As an extremely busy and super-successful actor and producer, Leonardo DiCaprio is doing quite well for himself, of course. On “Wolf of Wall Street” alone in 2013, he made $25 million as compared to his co-star, Jonah Hill, who only made $60,000.00. BTW, Jonah was actually offering to play DiCaprio’s character’s best friend and business partner for SAG scale. Imagine that. He did get an Oscar nomination for that part though, as did Leo, but neither won that year.
As for Leonardo DiCaprio’s net worth, it went from $100,820,000 in 2011 to $144,000,000 in 2012, 185,000,000 in 2013, $230,000,000 in 2014, to $250,000,000 in 2015. And now in 2016, it will undoubtedly increase exponentially, especially if he wins an Oscar for best actor in “The Revenant”.

Born Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio on November 11, 1974 in Hollywood, CA, Leonardo DiCaprio has become one of the highest paid and most sought-after actors in his field. And, it’s only bound to get better once he wins that elusive Oscar. None of his previous nominations have led to a win, but this year could definitely change that streak.
So, if you haven’t seen “The Revenant” yet, it’s definitely a must-see film. After all, how else will you know whether to root for all the Oscar nominated categories, including best picture, best actor and best director, just to name a few. And, if you missed any of the other Leonard DiCaprio blockbusters, you really should check them out. That way, you’ll know for yourself just why he gets paid what he does and why the Leonardo DiCaprio net worth keeps climbing so much every year. We just watched “The Departed” for the umpteenth time today on television and still love it more every time we see it. Leo’s stoically underplayed brooding Billy Costigan is a classic performance. And, his youthful performance in “Catch Me if You Can” is always such fun to watch. He plays the part of the young criminal genius, Frank Abignail, to a “T” and it quickly becomes a fave of everybody who sees it, even today. It’s quite obvious why he gets paid some $20 million on average per picture.
