Here are reasons why:
Have you seen The Departed or Blood Diamond
Several Oscar nominations
Have you seen What's Eating Gilbert Grape or Basketball Diaries
He's modest, which just makes him a great person
(The Walrus, Leo himself said that people thinking he just got into Hollywood for he's looks is he's biggest nightmare and he said he wants people to take him seriously as an actor. He's a FANTASTIC actor, GAH, watch The Aviator if you don't believe me! No talent, seriously who are you to say that, have you seen Blood Diamond or The Departed or The Aviator??? I'm going with NO!!!!)
Leo is one of the greats!!! I'm not just saying that because I'm 14 either! I've seen most of his movies! Blood Diamond was amazing!
