Leonardo DiCaprio: I miss dreaming
Leonardo DiCaprio only likes dreams where he realises he`s asleep and can steer the action.
The actor gave up smoking a year-and-a-half ago, and has previously revealed the nicotine patches he used to quell his cravings gave him nightmares. The terrifying visions have now subsided, and the actor rarely dreams at all.
He admits his undisturbed sleep is a worry for him, adding he wishes he had certain dreams more often.
"It`s strange but I don`t dream much at all. I wonder if that means there`s something wrong with me?" he mused. "I would like to dream more because I like dreams. The kind of dreams I really like are the ones where you realise you`re dreaming and you`re able to say to yourself, `OK, I`m dreaming, so I can do whatever the hell I want right now. Hey, let`s try this!` That`s a good dream."
Leonardo, 35, thinks he slumbers so soundly because he is happy with his life. He has no aspirations he still wants to fulfil, as his only hope as a child was to become an actor.
He is also happy in his personal life, explaining he loves nothing better than relaxing with friends when he has time off. "My only real self-indulgence is to hang out with friends, talk about nothing of any importance, do funny voice and act like a complete child," he told Company magazine. "Being an idiot with your friends is the best therapy."
