What did Leonardo DiCaprio have to say about having children?

Though he's known to have one of the most private personal lives in Hollywood, Leonardo DiCaprio has opened up about his feelings on becoming a father, saying: "If it happens, it happens."

The Shutter Island actor, who has scooped his third Golden Globes award, seems to be open to having children one day. Rolling Stone magazine quizzed the 41-year-old - who has recently split from his model girlfriend Kelly Rohrbach - about any future plans he may have to start a family.

"Do you mean do I want to bring children into a world like this?" the environmental activist told the magazine. "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," he added. "To articulate how I feel about it is just gonna be misunderstood."

After beating fellow Golden Globes nominee Eddie Redmayne and being crowned Best Actor for his stellar performance in The Revenant, he also said he feels his new film has been misunderstood.

The Hollywood star felt that critics' concerns that the violent plot would not appeal to female viewers was unjust. "I think it's silly, and I think that the women I've spoken to really enjoyed the movie," he commented.

Whether he chooses to have children or not, Leonardo intends to keep his personal life out of the media spotlight. "I liked it when you went to see a movie and you didn't know everything about the actor," he told the publication.

However, the question on everyone's lips is will the acclaimed actor finally win an Oscar this year after five unfulfilled nominations? "Sure, everyone likes to be recognised, but that's out of my hands - other people control those things," he said. "I will say it would help the film, bring it to more people."
