Local resident of BPC, A-list actor Leonardo DiCaprio, is retiring from acting. The NY Post article also has a comment from him referencing his green BPC apartment.
From the NY Post, “Leonardo DiCaprio…has announced he’s retiring from acting indefinitely. “I’m a little bit drained,” he told the German newspaper Bild. “I am now going to take a long, long break.” After doing three films — “Django Unchained,” “The Great Gatsby” and the recently finished “The Wolf of Wall Street (filmed in Downtown)”. “I would like to improve the world a bit,” he said. “I will fly around the world doing good for the environment.” In the meantime, he’s living green at home. “My roof is covered with solar panels,” he said. “My car is electric. A normal person does not drive more than [30 miles] a day. That can be done with a plug.””
