“I went to a supermarket with my cap and glasses on, and I was on the cover of a magazine,” said the Titanic actor. “I was behind a woman at the checkout counter who was looking at magazines. She turned to me and goes, ‘There he is again, that Leonardo DiCaprio. Don’t you wish he’d just disappear?’ I said (to myself), ‘This is the moment where I either go, “Do you know who I am?” or put my hat further down, pay for my CornNuts and get out of there.'”

Back then, in an effort to take a break from the media frenzy, Leonardo DiCaprio chose to step away from the limelight for a period. He sought solace in visiting museums globally, gradually collecting art, and seeking diverse experiences. This respite allowed him to distance himself from the intense media attention he was receiving, although he’s not entirely certain about how he managed it all.
