Leo receives award

Leo has received the Rodolfo-Valentino-award on Jan. 27 in Rome:

NY Daily News - Jan. 30, 2001

     Why 'Lenny' Got the Boot

     Would 'Titanic' have been as a big a hit if it had starred Lenny
     Williams? That's the name that an agent once told Leonardo
     DiCaprio to adopt if he wanted to make it in show biz. But the
     screen hunk told an adoring audience in Rome on Saturday he'd
     never 'insult' his heritage.

     Picking up his Rudolph Valentino film award,
     DiCaprio threatened to bite the hand that fed
     him by declaring how proud he was to have
     German ancestors and the middle name of
     Wilhelm. But, that said, he went back to his

     'Living in Rome for the past five months,' said
     the goateed actor, who has been there shooting
     'Gangs of New York,' 'I have been struck by
     the passion of the people, the beauty of the art
     and culture. ... What impressed me most of all is the overwhelming
     pride that we Italians take in who we are.'

I think it's wonderful that he received a reward.
