Leo wants to be more than eye candy

Leonardo Dicaprio wasn't thrilled with being "another piece of cute meat" after the huge success of Titanic - and nearly quit acting because of it. "It was pretty disheartening to be objectified like that," the Blood Diamond actor said at Newsweek's Oscar panel discussion. "I wanted to stop acting for a little bit. It changed my life in a lot of ways, but at the same time, I can't say it didn't give me opportunities. It made me, for the first time, in control of my career... There's nothing that I walk away from feeling transformed by the way I do with cinema."
