An Interestin Life: A Legacy for the World: Leonardo Di Caprio

Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio
Born in 1974 in Los Angeles, California, Leonardo DiCaprio is an actor and a film producer known for his edgy, unconventional roles. In the early 1990s, DiCaprio began his career by appearing in television commercials, after which he had recurring roles in various television series. He then moved on to film, scoring an Oscar nomination for his role inWhat's Eating Gilbert Grape(1993). In 1997, DiCaprio starred inJames Cameron's epic dramaTitanic, which made him a huge star. His more recent films includeInception (2010), Django Unchained(2012), The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) andThe Revenant(2015), winning his first Oscar for the latter. 

We think he is really interesting because besides being an incredible famous actor and a film producer, he cares and has time for being an environmentalist too. In 2000, he hosted an Earth Day celebration and interviewed formerU.S. President Bill Clintonfor a television segment about global warming. DiCaprio also wrote, narrated and producedThe 11th Hour, an environmental documentary that was released in 2007.  
From a benefit "11th Hour" fine art auction he organized in 2013, he raised nearly $40 million to toward his foundation. He told attendees, "Bid as if the fate of the planet depended on us." It became the world's highest-grossing environmental charity event ever held. DiCaprio states that global warming is the world's "number-one environmental challenge". In July 2016 his foundation awarded $15.6 million to help protect wildlife and the rights of Native Americans, along with combating climate change. 
At the 2016 Oscar ceremony, DiCaprio won the award for Best Actor. He used his acceptance speech to express his appreciation and worry for the environment: “Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people out there who would be most affected by this. For our children’s children and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed.”

An Interesting Life: A legacy for the World: David Beckham

David Beckham is very famous all over the world as a footballer but he also cares about others. He has been a UNICEF UK ambassador since 2005, and in 2015 he launched 7: The David Beckham UNICEF Fund to help protect children in danger around the world. 

Here is what Leonardo and Nicolás say about him.

He is David Robert Joseph Beckham. He was born on 2nd May 1975.He is an English former professional footballer. He played for Manchester United, Preston North End, Real Madrid, Milan, LA Galaxy, Paris Saint-Germain. He is the first English player to win league titles in four countries: England, Spain, the United States and France.
In international football, Beckham made his England debut on 1 September 1996 at the age of 21.
One of the most marketable athletes in sport, Beckham has consistently ranked among the highest earned in football.
He has been married to Victoria Beckham since 1999 and they have four children.

Beckham is one of the most accomplished players of his era and a player with an on-field signature skill, but he's going to be remembered for everything but his skills. He was a good-enough player and good-looking enough dude that people didn't forget. Someone decided to make a film with his name in it, and from then on, Beckham was the most famous player in the world and there was nothing that anyone could do about it.

He is one of the best rappers in the world. His music is reflexive and thoughtful. What I like most about his music is that he fights against discrimination. He leaves the world the desire to continue fighting.

in charge of managing the Vatican and of encouraging peace in the world. He is outstanding for his humility and simplicity, which distinguishes him from other popes.

That's what has made him stand out and get the attention of his superiors. He was born on December 17, 1986. He's 79 years old.
We think that he's very interesting because he's different from others. He doesn't care about luxury. He is only interesed in good, in peace, in the world.
His legacy to the world is the message of simplicity, that the material things aren't so important as long as you are in peace and have faith.

An Interesting Life: A Legacy for the World: Abel Pintus

Abel Federico Pintos was born on 11th of May in 1984, in Bahia Blanca. He’s an Argentinian singer and songwriter of folklore and latin pop. He started his career when he was 7 years old, and his first album was called “Para cantar he nacido”(1997), and he has been making other 10 albums.

His music is quiet and somethimes energic. He sings about the love, the coldness, the personal values or the good dreams.
His first advertising single was “Tu voz” (2004), and he has won different prizes like “Premio Revelaciones Cosquin”(1998) and “Premio al Mejor Intérprete” in the Festival at Viña del Mar.

We think that Aber Pintos is an interesting person because he’s modest and he started singing when he was very young. He became famous on his own and he has never lost his humility.
His legacy is to give good emotions and feelings with his songs.
The song “Sin principio ni final” says that he will love someone forever and she will do it too, telling her that she’s his “Angel of eternity”.
