Leonardo DiCaprio practically missed out on a task in ‘Titanic’.
The Hollywood heartthrob performed Jack Dawson within the iconic 1997 movie however director James Cameron revealed that it nearly fell aside as a result of star’s poor angle throughout auditions.
In a profession retrospective for GQ, James mentioned: “There was a gathering with Leo after which there was a display screen check with Leo.
“The assembly was humorous as a result of I’m sitting in my convention room, ready to fulfill an actor. And I go searching, and all the ladies in the whole workplace are within the assembly. All of them needed to fulfill Leo. It was hysterical.”
The ‘Avatar’ director mentioned that the primary assembly with DiCaprio went properly because the actor “charmed everyone” however issues didn’t go as easily when he was requested again for a display screen check with co-star Kate Winslet.
James, 68, mentioned: “So he got here again a few days later, and I had the digital camera set as much as document the video.
“He did not know he was going to check. He thought it was one other assembly to fulfill Kate. So I mentioned, ‘Okay, we’ll simply go within the subsequent room, and we’ll run some traces and I am going to video it.’
“And he mentioned, ‘You imply, I am studying?’ I mentioned, ‘Yeah’. He mentioned, ‘Oh, I do not learn.'”
The filmmaker continued: “I shook his hand and mentioned, ‘Thanks for coming by.’ And he mentioned, ‘Wait, wait, wait. If I do not learn, I do not get the half? Similar to that?’
“And I mentioned, ‘Oh yeah. Come on. It is a big film that’s going to take two years of my life, and you will be gone doing 5 different issues whereas I am doing post-production. So, I am not going to f*** it up by making the incorrect determination in casting. So, you are going to learn, otherwise you’re not going to get the half.'”
