Leonardo DiCaprio Taking Indefinite Acting Break; Mia Farrow Also

The decades-long box office feud between Leonardo DiCaprio and Mia Farrow has ended in a gentleman's draw as both parties have, in tandem, withdrawn from acting.

DiCaprio reportedly made his semi-retirement known to the German newspaper Bild, where he explained, "I'm a little bit drained. I am now going to take a long long break. I'm just worn out."

With shooting completed on Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street--apparently his final film for a while--DiCaprio says he'll now concentrate on his ecological efforts, saying he "will fly around the world doing good for the environment" and stealing the premise of Captain Planet.

Hearing that DiCaprio upheld his side of their quiet truce, Farrow yesterday responded likewise, tweeting (via), "Like my colleague Leonardo DiCaprio I too will be retiring from acting indefinitely." Her last film for now, and possibly forever, is Todd Solondz's Dark Horse.

In short, now you can definitely forget about Inception 2, starring Mia Farrow.
