Leo DiCaprio & Clint Eastwood Cover 'Hollywood Reporter'

Leonardo DiCaprio and his J. Edgar director Clint Eastwood take the latest cover of The Hollywood Reporter, on stands today.

The 36-year-old actor slashed his $20 million fee to $2 million to help get the $35 million picture made. (The biopic is about J. Edgar Hoover, the controversial first head of the FBI.)

“[Leo] could have made a lot of money just doing spectacle movies with all kinds of CGI,” says Clint. “But he wants to vary his career, like I’ve always looked to vary mine as a director.”

Clint also wasn’t sure if the rumor that Hoover was a cross-dresser or gay holds true, but that didn’t stop the director for putting Leo in a gay kiss for the film.

“Along the way, people accused him of [that],” Clint notes. “But nobody knows how accurate it was. Evidently the woman who accused him of that, her husband had been sent to the slammer by Hoover. So you don’t know how much was vengeance… [But I think] there is a certain amount of truth [to all the allegations].”

  • bobbyweiner

    20 million fee wow, Leo you are good, but not that good

  • mxxx

    Love them… togheter!!!

  • mel

    @bobbyweiner: it says that he was supossed to get 20M but lowered his salary to 2 millions in order to get the film made because it’s controversial and no studio would pay for it. I also think that this “I lower my salary because it’s a passion project” will probably gain him pros with academy members when it’s time to vote so, who knows…

  • lifeisgood

    Love Leo, Love Clint. I cannot wait for this movie.

  • why

    leo fan sex man

  • fans

    leo looks fat

  • J.

    Whenever I see Clint, I think of Meryl Streep saying she based her character in “the devil wears Prada” on him because he never raised his voice and still managed to be the most intimidating person in a room.
    love the man!!!
    Leo looks puffy.
    lay off the carbs, boo.

  • Yo Landi

    @mel: I agree with you on the “I lower my salary because it’s a passion project” part =)

  • Yo Landi

    Leo has DEFINITELY looked better. Much better. If you see what I mean!

  • Mr. DiCaprio’s Fan

    WOW! Thanks Jared for sharing this amazing magazine cover! Leo looks very relaxed and happy there….:)

  • sexyleoandclint

    I love the both of them, and I also love historical-type movies.

  • riko

    wonder why he is so keen on doing a movie with Beyonce. Did he ever watch Obsessed? can’t act for good!!!!!! J. LO is probably the only singer i’ve seen that can truly be a great movie star too.

  • SusieQ

    Great pics, thanks Jared. Both are great, I can’t wait till next week to see J. EDGAR.

  • ali

    Leo would do everything to get an Oscar (his dream)
    even to slash his salari .
    he dosnt want to be in a relationship with anyone – all he wants is an Oscar .

    i think he is a great actor – i liked the trailer of this movie

  • stabler

    @dax: Uh, who says HIS intentions are good? He seems to be attracted to a model type, so why feel sorry for him? He’s just a playboy. He would settle down if it’s what he wanted.

  • Cupcakes

    Why, oh why, when there are so many other good, and better, actors, is Leonardo repeatedly cast in these films? He always looks the same, sounds the same, there’s nothing new happening. He’s always the same characterization. It’s getting a bit boring, Hollywood, will you please listen?

  • MarilynandtheDiamonds

    Both great and talented men. Thank you Leo for not being a gold digger like Kim K

  • Ka

    Leo always has the right choice of movies. He likes complicated characters. Well done, Leo!

  • A

    Why people always focus on gay issue?


    Please, folks. Leo is a great actor, just facing reality. He always looks the same? Definitely not. Looks like we’re talking about Robert Pattinson here. Give me a break, Leo is too good.

  • LOVE

    Love to see these two leading men together!


    And I forgot to say one thing… simply GORGEOUS on the cover of THR magazine. HOT, HOT, HOT.

  • L

    Leo’s hair style and clothes could be much better than this. What’s wrong with this magazine?

  • Swallow

    $20 million to $2 million? I cant believe that. What a professional actor!

  • zurichgirl

    even your ugly shirt cant make you look bad Leo,

  • Stop

    Thanks Jared for this new post. Please please please dont come here ……

  • FrG

    I love Leo but his hair is horrible there !!!!! Please Leo change of haistyle !!!

  • 34

    yeh Dax, I see it. Wonder if his ex is back? Looks like ex-factor.

  • tinkerbell

    the pay is 24 million, and he’ll be 37 in like two weeks. still looks good in an understated sort of way

  • Oh no

    Oh, no, Leo, your smile is killing me!

  • JJ

    JJ, please let us have beautiful photos of Leo on red carpet! Thanks.

  • HOT

    Leo looks so handsome here.

  • SusieQ

    Leo is a great actor who is truly devoted to his craft, for those who think he is boring, then go look else,go to your own idols. Just don’t disturb the ones who happen to enjoy Leonardo and appreciate his talents. Too bad some don’t see it, it’s their loss..

  • Apple

    There are a lot of sight seeings of Leo in clubs. Not tired?

  • @ tinkerbell

    @tinkerbell: And he earned more than 50 million for inception!

  • Man

    He played so many different roles in all those years. I dont understand why someone said they are the same.

  • gugo

    Wow Clint Eastwood is a legend and yet my all time fave actor
    love Leo too

  • K A Z simply

    Leo diCaprio so handsom in cov ☺

  • K A Z simply

    Leo Handsome as always ☺

  • tv

    eastwood is not a good person. he went behind sondra locke’s back and secretly fathered 2 children with another woman then took years to acknowledge them

  • Nick

    @tv: I know, right? But Leo fans don’t use their brains, they sniff too much of the fangirl fumes and see butterflies coming out of their (Leo and Clint’s) butts instead of seeing the ugly truth for what it is. Clint is a cheating deadbeat dad and Leo is a partying womanizing player.

  • uh

    leo looks old and big head

  • Man

    I have a wish, haters leave and dont come again. Why do they stay here and waste their time to comment if they dont like him?

  • Ka

    Leo looks so different in different roles including but not limit to those in This Boy’s life, What’s eating Gilbert Grape, Titanic, Aviator, Blood Diamond, Departed and so on. He has different voices too, dont forget he has different accents in some of them.
