Leonardo DiCaprio is enjoying some time off before awards season gets into full swing. The actor and his model girlfriend Toni Garrn were photographed sharing a meal in Mexico on Thursday, Jan. 2.
DiCaprio is scheduled to attend the Golden Globes on Sunday, Jan. 12, where he's nominated in the Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy) category for his role as Jordan Belfort in "The Wolf of Wall Street."
The R-rated film recently set the record for the most use of the f-word in a single movie.

According to Variety, the word "f--k" is uttered 506 times in "The Wolf of Wall Street's" 180-minute running time. Previously, Spike Lee's 1999 film "Summer of Sam" set the record with 435 instances.
DiCaprio, 39, recently reacted to some critics' opinion that the movie glorifies greed and excess.
"It's exciting to be a part of a film, in a way, that is kind of bold and is taking a chance like that, and I think that anyone that thinks this is a celebration of Wall Street and this sort of hedonism--yes, the unique thing about [director Martin Scorsese] is that he doesn't judge his characters. And that was something that you don't quite understand while you're making the movie, but he allows the freedom of this almost hypnotic, drug-infused, wild ride that these characters go on," the "Great Gatsby" star argued. "And he allows you, as an audience--guilty or not--to enjoy in that ride without judging who these people are. Because ultimately, he keeps saying this: 'Who am I to judge anybody?'"
He continued, "I think if anyone watches this movie, at the end of 'Wolf of Wall Street,' they're going to see that we're not at all condoning this behavior. In fact we're saying that this is something that is in our very culture and it needs to be looked at and it needs to be talked about. Because, to me, this attitude of what these characters represent in this film are ultimately everything that's wrong with the world we live in."
