Leonardo DiCaprio may have a hectic schedule, but the Hollywood star has said that when he does get time to relax, he acts like a 'complete idiot' and discusses absolutely 'nothing of importance.'

The 'Django Unchained' star may take his movies 'very seriously', but he's said that when he does get some rare time off he loves nothing more than to act like a 'fool.'

He said: ''I take what I do very seriously when I'm on the set that's all I focus on. So my vice is to hang out with my friends, talk about absolutely nothing of importance and act like a complete idiot.

''It's like therapy to just be a complete idiot with my friends," he told the Daily Mail.

However, Leo says that he hasn't spent time with his friends for a 'year and a half' because of his hectic schedule, which has seen the star shoot 'Django Unchained', 'The Great Gatsby' and 'The Wolf of Wall Street'. This means that the actor is supe-excited about finally spending time with his pals once he's finished promotional work.

He explained: ''I love to have friends over, but I haven't really been home for a year and a half so I don't even remember the last time I did that."

''I've just done three movies back-to-back, so I'm looking forward to getting back to my house.''

When the 38-year-old star isn't at home he loves to escape from his busy showbiz lifestyle by diving underwater and 'disconnecting from earth'.

He added: ''I love diving - it's one of my favourite things. I've been to a lot of different places around the world and sought out coral reefs and different species to see underwater."

''It's a whole new experience when you're down there. You really disconnect from earth and you're almost in a dream world.''
