It’s been a big year for the Los Angeles native and he may need a little time to himself now.

It is being reported that Leonardo DiCaprio may be hitting the pause button on his acting career. At least for a little bit. But, hang on…

Before you go tearing your Titanic poster off your bedroom wall and tweeting “#CutForLeo,” relax... He’ll probably be back before you know it.

“I've just done three movies back-to-back, so I'm looking forward to getting back to my house,” he said in a recent interview.

Those three movies include: The Wolf of Wall Street, The Great Gatsby, and Django Unchained, a film that many fans have cried foul at the Academy for snubbing him in the category of Best Supporting Actor.

The roles—all intense, mind you—have taken a toll on his emotional well-being, so a little “Leo Time" will certainly come in handy. And all that means, apparently, is acting like a complete idiot with his buddies… You know, like regular dudes do.

“I take what I do very seriously when I'm on the set that's all I focus on,” he continued. “So my vice is to hang out with my friends, talk about absolutely nothing of importance and act like a complete idiot.”

He likens goofing off with his buddies to “therapy.”

“I love to have friends over, but I haven't really been home for a year and a half so I don't even remember the last time I did that,” he said.

The Wolf of Wall Street and The Great Gatsby are due out in 2013. After that, the actor’s future slate is empty.
