Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the biggest names in Hollywood. He’s starred in some of the biggest films, and everyone agrees he’s a total hunk.
Something many don’t realize about him is that he was raised primarily by his mother, Irmelin Indenbirken, after she split from Leo’s dad.
When Leo won BAFTA’s Best Actor award he accredited his success to his mom.
During his acceptance speech, he paid tribute to his mom saying:
“This person drove me three hours to every day to show me a better life…I grew up in a very rough neighborhood.”
To make the day that Leo won even sweeter, it was her birthday!
