The actor has insisted that he enjoys going on the ride with his screen alter egos.
"For me as an actor, just from an actor's perspective, I get to live out a lot of... or, you know, flush out a lot of demons through my filmmaking experiences - I've gotten to play some pretty intense characters lately and, you know, I actually think it's therapeutic in a way for me," The Mirror quoted the actor as saying.
Leonardo continued, "It's amazing to completely focus on something for four, five, six months at a time, have it completely consume your life and be constantly thinking about somebody else's set of circumstances and how they would emotionally react to something.
"I find it fascinating and you know, it's rewarding on a professional and personal level," he added. (ANI)
