Melbourne, (ANI): Leonardo DiCaprio has revealed that his friends keep him grounded. The Titanic star said that stardom has a negative effect on a lot of good actors. "Just because you've done a good performance once, doesn't mean you're always going to be good. That's why some of the greatest actors in the world have gone a little bit nuts," the Daily Telegraph quoted him as telling parade.com.
He added: “They're saying to themselves, ''What happened? You used to love me?'' It's an easy trap to fall into. You just have to realise that when you're hot, you're hot, and when you're not, you're not. "I know this is going to sound lame, but one of my favourite things is hanging out with my friends. They take me away from the world of show business and keep me grounded.
“It brings me back to who I am. When I didn't want to go out in public after all the craziness surrounding Titanic, they sort of pushed me out the door. They were like, ''Are you going to hide out like a little hermit?'' "
