There are two types of people in the world - people who work really hard and people who are naturally skilled. And then there is Leonardo DiCaprio who is preternaturally talented and what appears to be very hardworking. 

His awesomeness is undisputed. And this tape from 1983 only restates what we already know. DiCaprio was 9 when this audition for Francis Ford Coppola's The Outsiders was conducted. 

And as the anchor lets us know, he did get the part and appeared for a little while in the pilot. 

You can (re: must) watch the video by RealityHeroes here. It will, obviously, only reinstate your belief that this man deserves an Oscar. 

Because he is worth it!
