Leonardo DiCaprio says he’s taking a break from acting. After working on three films in two years, according to the ABS-CBNnews.com translation, DiCaprio told the Germany daily Bild ”I am a bit drained. I’m now going to take a long, long break. I’ve done three films in two years and I’m just worn out.” Whether we’ll have time to miss him is another matter. He’s been promoting Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. Publicity appearances for upcoming releases of Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby (due out May 10th from Warner Bros) and Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street (4th quarter 2013 via Paramount) will likely cut into his time off. There’s also his production company Appian Way. DiCaprio says he plans to use the time to travel and promote environmental awareness. “I would like to improve the world a bit. I will fly around the world doing good for the environment”. His personal environmental lifestyle? “My roof is covered with solar panels. My car is electric. A normal person does not drive more than 50 kilometres (31 miles) a day. That can be done with a plug.”

Electric cars don't help as much as people think. To provide electricity, companies burn an uninmanginable amount of fossil fuels. If people really want to change the world, they need to change how we create electricity whether its nuclear, wind, solar, etc. So people charging their electric car every day would probably cause more emissions than just regular combustion engines.
Not if they find a way to charge the cars with solar energy.

The unintentional comedy in that is OFF THE CHARTS!

Being in the film industry isn't any easier than a typical 9-5 job.
I understand some of these actors work hard at their craft but they don't have to deal with the rigors of the average joe's workload.

Well they're obviously past their prime for the most part though to be fair.
Even Pacino and De Niro have been in garbage recently.

Opposite for me Pacino then De Niro.
I'm a way bigger De Niro fan though (than Pacino). I think De Niro's been and starred in way greater films overall both in quality and quantity combined. That's not to say obviously Pacino doesn't have his own impressive resume, but just not as much as De Niro imo.
