DiCaprio admits being 'rebellious' after 'Titanic'

Leonardo DiCapario says he went through a period of rebellion following the success of the hit 1997 movie 'Titanic'.

“Titanic was a period of rebellion for me,” he told Parade.com.

“I was very much portrayed in the press as a heart-throb. It wasn’t what I wanted to be. It was like a runaway train. This thing just took off. I didn’t understand what was happening to me. My instinctive reaction to this tabloid madness was to want to run away.”

However, Leo is grateful for the career opportunities Titanic gave him.

“If it hadn’t been for that movie, I wouldn’t have been able to take control of my career,” he says.
