 Leonardo DiCaprio Devotes Off-Screen Time to Saving Planet
莱昂纳多荧幕外“拯救地球”



In his new film J. Edgar, Leonardo DiCaprio stars as J. Edgar Hoover, famous for making the FBI into a world-renowned law enforcement agency and infamous for the files he kept on Americans both in and out of power.

"Is that legal?"
"Sometimes you have to bend the rules a little in order to keep your country safe."

"It's interesting in this day and age to do a film about political espionage and wiretapping," notes DiCaprio. "I don't think those types of secrets that J. Edgar Hoover was able to obtain and keep would be possible in today's world. With the Internet and 'Wikileaks' it doesn't seem that those types of secrets can be kept for that long a period of time."

It's no secret, though, that DiCaprio is a committed and vocal environmental activist. More than a decade ago he inspired a Hollywood trend by becoming the first among his peers to start driving a fuel-efficient hybrid car.

"I think that every car should have that technology," DiCaprio says. "It really has dramatically less emissions and, not only that, the gas mileage is unbelievable. If we have the technology to make every car like that - and we should - we would reduce our dependence on oil, foreign and domestic."

DiCaprio says he's been fascinated by nature ever since he was a child growing up in smog-choked Los Angeles.

"I actually wanted to be a marine biologist when I was very young. That was a great passion of mine, so I suppose in the off-season when not making movies, I became more and more active as an environmentalist and tried to be more vocal about issues that I felt were important," he explains.

The Leonardo diCaprio Foundation, established in 1998 to promote a sustainable future, has been active in issues ranging from eliminating plastic grocery bags to ending shark-finning, the brutal practice blamed for a steep decline in shark populations around the world.

"Right now, the campaign that I'm a part of is to save the last remaining wild tigers throughout Asia," explains DiCaprio. "There are only 3,200 left in the wild. There are more Asian tigers in cages in Texas than there are tigers in the wild and we are at risk of losing this iconic species for all time."

At an Asian tiger summit in Moscow last year, DiCaprio personally donated $1 million to a program for protecting habitat as well as wildlife.

"Throughout Asia, a lot of countries are selling off jungle and forest rights for palm oil and for paper and pulp companies. So it's more of land preservation effort," he explains, "because if you can unify the public behind saving an iconic species like the tiger, like they did with the panda, that means you need to protect their habitat and everything that they hunt."

DiCaprio has won acclaim for his encyclopedic knowledge of the environment and sustainability. He says he uses his movie star status to draw attention to what he considers a global concern.

"It's important to everybody," DiCaprio stresses. "I think that the environmental movement is the biggest people movement in the world."

DiCaprio also brings his environmental activism into the workplace, requiring his film projects to adopt "green" practices to prevent wasting resources.


在新电影J. Edgar中,莱昂纳多饰演的J. Edgar Hoover主要功绩是使FBI成为世界闻名的执法机构也因他保存的当政和不当政期间的美国文件而变得声名狼藉。

“那是合法的吗?”
“有些时候为了保证国家安全,你必须向一些规定稍微地妥协一下。”

莱昂纳多说:“我觉得很有趣今年今天可以拍一个关于政治间谍和窃听题材的电影。我不认为J. Edgar Hoover 在当今世界还有可能获得和保存秘密并不为人知,因为有互联网和‘维基解密’,这些秘密就不可能再被掩盖如此之久。”

然而,莱昂纳多是一个忠诚和为环境保护发声的积极分子却早已不是秘密。十多年之前,他是他这一代中第一个开始骑节能混合动力车的人并随之在好莱坞中掀起了一股潮流。

莱昂纳多说:“我认为每一辆车都应该应用该种技术。它的确能帮助减少很多的废气排放,不仅如此,它每英里的耗油量也是不可思议的。如果每一辆车我们都运用该种技术,那么我们将降低对国内外油的依赖。”

莱昂纳多说他从很小在烟雾袅绕的洛杉矶生活的时候就非常向往大自然。

“我小的时候其实是想成为一个海洋生物学家。我一直都对此充满热情,所以我打算在荧幕外没拍电影的时候,更多的是作为一个环境保护者来活动并尽可能地为我觉得重要的议题发声。”

莱昂纳多·迪卡普里奥基金成立于1998年,为了促进可持续的未来发展,从消除塑料购物袋到终止致使全世界鲸鱼数量急剧下降的残忍行为即食用鱼翅,该基金都积极地发挥了作用。

莱昂纳多说:“最近,我作为成员之一的活动是拯救亚洲仅存的野生虎。现在总共只有3,200只虎在野外,德克萨斯州被关在笼子中的亚洲虎数量远远多于在野外的虎的数量。我们随时都可能失去这个标志性物种。”

在去年关于亚洲虎的首脑会议上,莱昂纳多个人捐赠了100万美元给一个保护人类和野生动物的项目。

莱昂纳多说:“在亚洲,许多国家出售草丛和森林使用权给棕榈油、纸和纸浆公司,所以我们又要为土地保护做更多的努力。因为如果你能统一后面的市民拯救像老虎和熊猫之类的标志性野生动物,那么就意味着你需要保护他们的居住环境和他们所猎取的一切。”

莱昂纳多在环境方面的广博知识和对于环保的耐久力赢得了大家的一致赞扬。他说他用电影明星的身份来吸引更多的人群来关注他所认为的全球都更应关注的问题。

莱昂纳多强调:“我认为环境运动是世界上最大的人民运动。”

莱昂纳多还将自己的环保积极性带到了工作的地方,他要求他的电影团队都要采取绿色环保的做法以防止浪费资源。
