It's not often a Hollywood star would swap the high life for a stint out in the wilderness - but *Leonardo DiCaprio * is planning to do just that.

The 38-year-old actor, right, has revealed that he wants to have a "long, long break" from acting to pursue his passion for the environment.

"I would like to improve the world a bit," he told German newspaper Bild.

"I will fly around the world doing good for the environment. My roof is covered with solar panels. My car is electric. A normal person does not drive more than 50km a day. That can be done with a plug."

The Django Unchained star also admitted he was "worn out" after shooting three movies back-to-back and that he was planning to take a significant amount of time away from the bright lights of Tinseltown.

"I'm a bit drained. I'm now going to take a long, long break. I've done three films in two years and I'm just worn out," he said.

Before his latest movie, DiCaprio filmed *Baz Luhrmann *'s screen adaptation of The Great Gatsby and *Martin Scorsese *'s The Wolf of Wall Street.
