More than just celebrating his birthday, DiCaprio finds it stinging to be reminded that, among his countless achievements, the discovery of immortality is not found. Maybe that’s why he makes his partners pay for it. once these blow out the twenty-fifth candle. Jokes aside, DiCaprio is now in his prime, if he ever had a genuinely bad one.
