The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) will be honouring Leonardo DiCaprio with ‘Actors Inspiration Award’ in recognition of his film accomplishments and charity work. The ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ star will be handed the desirable accolade at the SAG Foundation’s 30th Anniversary Celebration at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills on November 5, 2015. The actor founded Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation in 1998 and has donated over $30 million toward environmental causes. SAG Foundation President JoBeth Williams said: ‘To commemorate our landmark anniversary, we’re excited to honour Leonardo DiCaprio’s outstanding achievements with our Actors Inspiration Award. ‘With beloved and acclaimed films as diverse as ‘Titanic’ to ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ to his latest film ‘The Revenant’, Leonardo’s career is a gold standard example to his craft.
