In 1996 my friends and I all went to see Romeo + Juliet starring Mr. DiCaprio and Angela Chase. If you are into dudes and you saw that movie, you were probably one of the thousands of people who audibly gasped when Romeo is introduced with a slow pan up his long, lean body to his insanely angelic face. I'm not kidding, the entire theatre was one huge whoosh of breath. Popcorn exploded. He was beautiful. He was seriously beautiful. My dad was like "Sweetie, that is a lady" when I started taping his picture up all over my room, but I didn't care. I suppose androgyny is comforting to middle school girls and that's why guys who looked like DiCaprio looked are popular with that age. I can tell you I'm really not into it now (with few exceptions). But he was very beautiful and very slim and had lips like a cupid's bow. I also stand by my statement that he was a great actor. I used to scream that a lot at my dad when he made fun of me for liking such a pretty boy. "HE IS A GREAT ACTOR AND YOU ARE A BUTTFACE DAD!" I would scream, and slam my door and cry onto my Leonardo DiCaprio pillow (not really).
(This was also when the internet was fresh and new and one time in a chat room someone said they'd send me a picture of Leonardo DiCaprio and it was his head photoshopped onto a naked man with a giant penis. I didn't know what to do about it. Later we sold that computer to our older neighbor and I wiped the drives but I was still terrified that the DiCaprio Porn was lurking somewhere and would spring out at her one afternoon.)
