Leonardo DiCaprio has said that without his mother's encouragement from a young age he wouldn't be where he is today.
The Wolf of Wall Street star told Access Hollywood, "I wouldn't be doing any of this is if weren't for her, both my parents.
"She supported this little kid who said, 'I want to be an actor', at 12 years old, which is ridiculous, and she drove me to all these auditions. She's the only reason I'm able to do what I do."
DiCaprio was honoured at Sunday night's Golden Globe awards taking home the award for Best Actor (Comedy or Musical) for his portrayal of former stockbroker Jordan Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street, which hits cinemas this Friday, January 17.
