Leonardo DiCaprio says he will not drink too much at the Golden Globes ceremony on Sunday.
The actor has been attending both the Academy Awards and the Globes for decades.
According to Leo, the fact that there is an open bar at the Globes makes it much easier to handle.
“It’s a much more calm atmosphere. Everyone has a drink at their table, we’re eating, we’re all socializing, we’re not sitting in an auditorium,” he told MTV News. “It’s a lot more relaxed and a lot more fun.”
Despite the pleasure of an open bar, the star warns against drinking too much. The 39-year-old says having one too many could lead to some embarrassment onstage.
“You don’t want to go above three,” he explained. “Two takes the edge off; three, you’re going up onstage and doing something silly.”
Leo is very likely to be in the spotlight at the ceremony on January 12. The star has been nominated for Best Actor in a Motion Picture for his for his role as Jordan Belfort in The Wolf Of Wall Street.
“It’s rare when someone is unafraid to divulge how dark they went,” he told Variety. “With all these people on Wall Street who’ve screwed over so many people since 2008, I became obsessed with playing a character who made me understand the mentality and nature of the seduction of Wall Street and greed.
“I appreciated his honesty. This film may be misunderstood by some; I hope people understand we’re not condoning this behavior, that we’re indicting it.”
