Simon & Schuster announced that Leo has signed a deal to publish the book, slated for release in 2013.

“My work requires that I inhabit other people’s lives but my memoir demands that I take on the toughest role of my career – playing myself,” Leo says.

Fair to assume the book will contain some salty language?

Also, any suggestions about a title? How about “A ‘Fighter’s’ Words: My Journey From Struggling Actress to Occasionally Obscene Oscar Winner”?
