Leonardo DiCaprio is an American actor and film producer who has made a fortune acquiring various properties over the years. He is one of the highest paid actors in the world. DiCaprio is the recipient of numerous accolades, including an Academy Award, a BAFTA, and a Golden Globe Award for The Revenant as well as two other Golden Globes for The Aviator and The Wolf of Wall Street.

A few years ago, he sold his oceanfront Malibu house for about $11 million (nearly 7 times more than what he paid for it 20 years earlier). Our real estate investor and talented actor has bought and sold numerous properties in New York, Hollywood, Palm Springs and The Hamptons.

For example, in 2009, DiCaprio bought an entire island, Blackadore Caye, off mainland Belize for $1.75 million on which he wants to open an environment-friendly resort. In addition, it is said that in 2014, DiCaprio also bought for $5.32 million the original Dinah Shore residence designed by Donald Wexler in Palm Springs, California, called 432 Hermosa. He even uses it as his own vacation home and rents it for at least $3,750 a night.
