Two published reports quoting Leonardo DiCaprio's on whether to settle down, get married and start a family paint two very different portraits of the famous actor.

In an Associated Press interview the 33-year-old actor, who has an on-and-off relationship with model Bar Refaeli, says he has no plans at the moment to settle down and start a family.

"Ah, how do you answer something like that? So, um, I am being asked to look in the future I suppose quickly. No, I don't have any plan," says the famously private star, who has been promoting his upcoming film, "Body of Lies."

DiCaprio can't seem to shake his heartthrob status, according to the Associated Press story.

"That's the only way I like to be referred to," he joked recently, the Associated Press reported. "When I walk on set it's in the contract."

But, in an interview for this Sunday's Parade magazine, the "Titanic" actor says he is open to getting married and having children.

“What I definitely feel a need for is to make my life about more than just my career,” he told Parade. “Just last night I was thinking to myself how little of my life has been lived normally and not spent on some far-off movie location. I want to get married and have children. In saying that, I realize I am contradicting everything I’ve said before. I absolutely believe in marriage.”

DiCaprio has been on the press circuit promoting his new movie "Body of Lies," which is in theaters Oct. 10.

During the Parade interview he also tells the magazine his grandmother's death "last week" is giving him a different outlook on life.

"I feel like a whole era in my life is over,” he told Parade about the death. “My grandma died last week. I have no more grandparents. I feel that coming ahead in my life is more stripping away, for sure. I feel very sad that Oma is gone.”

It is not clear when the Associated Press interview was done and if it was prior to his grandmother's death.

An e-mail sent to DiCaprio's manager by FOXNews.com was not immediately returned Wednesday night.
