The world has loved Leonardo DiCaprio ever since we saw him clinging to that door in Titanic. Since then, he's proven time and time again that he's one of the most awesome celebrities in Hollywood. Just check out this list of all the times Leonardo DiCaprio was as cool as you hope he'd be.

Leonardo DiCaprio is known for his acting ability (he finally won that Oscar!), but he's also one of the most vocal humanitarian activists in the business. Leo has sought to raise awareness for climate change, fought to protect endangered species, and even created his own foundation to fund his charitable efforts. But he's not always a serious do-gooder bent on saving the world. Sometimes he just wants to brandish a water-gun or rock a headband. He's that awesome. And lucky for you, there are pictures. 

Not only does Leo seem like a nice guy, but he also just seems incredibly cool - like the time he razzed Jonah Hill on the red carpet during promotions for The Wolf of Wall Street, or the time he took his mom to the Academy Awards. Super swoon worthy! As this list proves, Leo is the coolest, and probably always will be. It's no wonder all those supermodels want to hang out with him. Vote up the best stories of Leo being the awesome guy you always thought he was. When you're done, cast your vote in our list of Leo Dicaprio's best movies.

    Leonardo DiCaprio took his mom to the 2016 Academy Awards because, as he told ABC News, his parents took him to auditions every day after school when he was growing up. And Leo isn't the only celeb who has taken mom along as a date, either!
