Leonardo DiCaprio has said that he's to take a break from acting.

The star of 'Django Unchained', and the forthcoming 'The Wolf of Wall Street' with Martin Scorsese, revealed his plans during an interview with the German newspaper 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,” he said.

Asked of his plans, he said that he'd be taking up his interest in environmental issues instead of appearing in front of the camera.

“I would like to improve the world a bit. I will fly around the world doing good for the environment. My roof is covered with solar panels," he added.

“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.”

Before DiCaprio disappears, however, he has his Scorsese project, as well as playing Jay Gatsby in Baz Luhrmann's version of 'The Great Gatsby', while he's also been linked to Alejandro González Iñárritu's 'The Revenant'.
