Who would've thought Leonardo DiCaprio gets anxious?
The “Inception” star opened up about his anxiety, his childhood and his post-“Titanic” love life in the new issue of Rolling Stone, currently on newsstands.
"[My stomach churns over] really stupid stuff," DiCaprio told Rolling Stone. "Things that shouldn't make you anxious whatsoever. It's crazy how your mind will become this database to make you worry about things that are so arbitrary.”
But when he was younger, DiCaprio was just “a dwarf with the biggest mouth in the world.” (His words, not ours.)
“I would talk back to anyone and be up for any fight, and when you tell a kid that's three years older than you to shove it, you're going to get your (expletive) beat … I was a real punk, there's no question about it," he said.
And while you’d never know it based on his current relationship with Israeli supermodel Bar Rafaeli, DiCaprio said he had better luck with the ladies pre-“Titanic” fame.
Back then, the actor said, “My interactions with [girls] didn't have all the stigma behind it, not to mention there wasn’t a perception of her talking to me for only one reason."
