It’s Leo’s 40th birthday today. That’s 40 years without an Oscar –  the poor guy has been nominated several times and always seems to go home empty handed.

Here are some pictures of him without the golden trophy, and what he’s probably (we use the word loosely) thinking.

1. I’ll just grow this beard and no one will recognise me as Leo – no Oscar – DiCaprio.
