Even though Leonardo DiCaprio has a stellar career where he consistently charms viewers and critics, he has only one Academy Award, which remained a conversation topic among the fans.

Turns out Edward Norton has found the reason for DiCaprio winning only one Academy Award in his career, as Norton believes that the Inception actor is just unlucky. The Fight Club actor was present on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he shared that DiCaprio is immensely “addicted to devices” he jokes about the actor often checking “which club is blowing up and which Israeli supermodel turned 18 four hours ago” He added that they call him “Unlucky Leo” as he described his life-threatening accidents. He said,

“We were underwater, and he has this crappy little like aftermarket like snapshot digital camera in some sort of housing, but he’s obsessed. You know, he’s underwater like this on it all the time. And we call him Unlucky Leo because Leo has almost had a parachute not open on him, he’s had a plane engine blow up on him.”

Edward Norton added that the Django Unchained actor almost drowned while scuba diving when they were together,

“So in the water and after a while I’m looking around and I realize he’s just not there so I start swimming out like deep into the ocean and then I see it’s Leo and he’s coming toward me and I can see from like 50 yards away his eyes are like this big and he’s going like this [imitates Leonardo DiCaprio’s actions],” said Edward Norton. “You say you gave him Oxygen,” Fallon added.

“So I give it to him and he’s like we did the buddy breath thing and we go up abd he’s like falling all over me like ‘Oh buddy buddy, you saved my life, you saved me’ I’m like let’s get out of the water like let’s not do this.”

Norton’s explanation sounds reasonable as DiCaprio not winning the Oscar is just him being unlucky.
