When previously asked his thoughts about having children, Leo’s answer was a little ambiguous — but made it clear they were not a priority for him.
“Do you mean do I want to bring children into a world like this?” he told Rolling Stone in 2016. “If it happens, it happens. I’d prefer not to get into specifics about it, just because then it becomes something that is misquoted.
But, yeah. I don’t know… To articulate how I feel about it is just gonna be misunderstood,” he said.
Clearly, starting a family is not high on his list of priorities right now — but that may have something to do with Leo’s environmental work. The actor has advocated for cleaner energy initiatives and immediate policy to reverse the effects of climate change for years. He’s continuously used his platform as an actor to promote his ideas.
But with the current state of the world, which is so bad scientists say the effects of climate change will be irreversible in a matter of years, it’s not surprising that Leo isn’t focused on raising the next generation.
