Los Angeles: Leonardo DiCaprio's choices have been different from the romantic hero role that made him famous in 'Titanic' but the actor is very proud of his breakout role in the James Cameron directed movie.

DiCaprio, who is up for an Oscar in the best actor category for playing a reckless and immoral stock broker in 'The Wolf of Wall Street', believes the film's popularity helped him have a greater control on his career.

"You know, it's been such a long time, but it was such a huge part of my life. And people maybe think I have a reaction to that, to that film, but the truth is, I'm incredibly proud of it. And not only that, the movie has really made me be in control of my career," DiCaprio told Gayle Kin on CBS' This Morning.

The 39-year-old actor has been nominated at the Oscars for five times and is a strong favourite this year for his fifth collaboration with director Martin Scorsese.

They have previously worked together on 'The Gangs of New York', 'The Aviator', 'The Departed' and 'Shutter Island'.
