He is an astounding actor who, as his colleagues say, spends most time learning about nature, ecology and plants. People would be amazed how much energy and focus he spends into sustaining the health of the planet.
If anything he is more of a fighter for a better world than actor.
However, his acting is flawless and this award was long coming. But even though the world thought him winning an Oscar would break the internet, what actually “broke” the internet was his speech.
“Making “The Revenant” was about men’s relationship to the natural world, a world that we collectively felt in the 2015 as the hottest year in recorded history. Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow.
Climate change is real!
It is happening right now!
It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating!
We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters or the big corporations, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people who will be most affected by this, for our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed.
I thank you all for this amazing award tonight!
Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted.
Thank you so very much!”
