Leonardo DiCaprio is still open to the idea of getting married.

The 'Great Gatsby' star - who has previously dated a string of high profile beauties including Gisele Bundchen, Bar Refaeli, Blake Lively and Erin Heatherton but is believed to be currently single - is excited to take more time off to do other things for the next few months and still thinks about settling down to have a family.

The 39-year-old actor told 'Extra': "I take it as it comes. We'll see what happens in the future. I don't try to determine what the future will be. I take it day by day.

"To me, right now it's about getting a little breather -- getting some time off.

"Not a permanent break or not an indefinite period, but you know, just a few months off to do some other things.

"I have absolutely nothing to complain about. There's a certain price to everything, but every time I listen to myself talk about those prices I get sick to my stomach because I'm so fortunate to do what I do. Really, I'm a lucky person."

DiCaprio also insisted that he is "feeling great" about his upcoming 40th birthday in November.

The 'Django Unchained' star - who is planning to use his time away from acting to focus on his environmental work - previously revealed he enjoys his endeavours in trying to help the planet, and finds his experiences "gratifying and fulfilling".

He added: "In my adult life, my environmental work and activism remain a priority.

"I created a foundation that focuses on raising public awareness of the very important issues concerning our planet, our environment, and the impact we as people have on the world we live in.

"It is not only an extremely fulfilling and gratifying learning experience, but has also taken me to some of the most interesting and beautiful places in the world."
