Leonardo DiCaprio & Kerry Washington Cover 'Vibe' December/January 2013

Leonardo DiCaprio and his Django Unchained co-stars Kerry Washington and Jamie Foxx take the cover of Vibe magazine’s December/January issue, on newsstands December 11.

Here’s what the cast had to share with the mag:

Leo, on addressing the issues in Django Unchained: “For me, the initial thing obviously was playing someone so disreputable and horrible whose ideas I obviously couldn’t connect with on any level. I think it took me to places I didn’t even imagine. I remember our first read and it was hard for me to wrap my head around it. My initial response was ‘Do we need to go this far? Are we going too far?’”

Kerry, on the reality of the movie: “I remember there was this one moment in the script where Jamie’s character was put in an awful crazy medieval metal mask. I said, “That’s some sick thing Quentin thought up.” And when I went to the production office to meet about my wardrobe, I saw into the research office. Twenty photos of real masks like that. It made me sad….I didn’t even know that they wore masks like that, that people did that to us. It took a Tarantino movie for me to know that that’s not some crazy thing out of his imagination. That’s how it went down.”

Jamie, on the impact of the film: “Every two, three years there is a movie about the Holocaust because they want you to remember and they want you to be reminded of what it was. When was the last time you’ve seen a move about slavery? What we were doing was an acrobatic routine with the highest degree of difficulty. It’s a tough script to read. I had both my daughters come down to the plantation and I walk them through and said, ‘This is where your people come from. This is your background.’”

    If you have to ask if you are going too far, then yes you are going too far. Django is going to be highly offensive. There is no way it should be released as a Christmas film. People in HW have their heads up their a s s.

    These 3 looks real good together I don’t know how everybody else feel but I just gotta feeling that this movie has and Oscar written all over it. Leo can’t do no wrong, Kerri love her and especially in Scandal the best show on t.v comes on Thursdays at 10 pm on abc and Jamie Foxx wow look how far has he come he is def doing and amazing job! Great cast overall

    @Tiana Says:

    Has Oscar written all over it? Why because you had a fanciful idea in your mind? Sorry but an Oscar is for quality films of substance. Something Django is not. Leo can do wrong and he is. Taking on this role is a huge mistake.

    Can’t WAIT for the movie!

    @Weirdo:

    History is highly offensive. Don’t be upset if this film stays true to the horrors and language of the time. In fact, I this film or any one on slavery cannot even begin to scratch the surface of the barbaric animalistic godless ways slaves were really treated.

    @Halli Says:

    Don’t worry I won’t be watching it. I HIGHLY doubt the subject will be treated with dignity in this campy western throwback that Tarantino is creating. The use of the word ‘despicable’ is right. I’ll PASS on this one.

    Jamie’s Holocaust comment is ridiculous.

    poster Says:

    not everything that is highly offensive has to be reproduced explicitly on screen for audiences to see. I’m sure kids get molested in the past but you will never see that explicitly reproduced on the big screen. Why?Because that’s disgusting, but its not disgusting to see a black women explicitly raped and hog tied to a tree and whipped? All in the script. I’m sure Tarantino will get very graphic with it. That’s his thing. Have fun seeing this one on Christmas day right after you open the presents.

    A Says:

    @poster: I agree. I hate seeing black women treated this way in the media and in movies and television.
    For once, I would just like to see black women portrayed with dignity and be normal! Just a normal, complex, individual like everyone else!
    Is it too much to ask? I’m personally working on a script and encourage more black women to write and produce (I wish I could produce but I don’t have the financial situation in order) and direct!
    I’m 23 years old and I will not give up until I see progress for us.
    And I find it very disturbing that this movie will be released on Christmas day….would a holocaust movie be released on Christmas day? ( ._.)

    My thoughts exactly!

    @Halli: Very well put. I never thought of history in that way but you are right.

    @Halli: Very well said. Never thought of history that way.

    me Says:

    I was not sure if I would go for this movie, because I found Tarantino controversial regarding sensitive subjects, but after reading all these hatred opinions I actually rethought my not-going for going for sure.
    First of all, this movie is not even close to how slaves where treated on the South. From movies trailers I see Django as a very bold, perky and cocky guy, which was impossible for that time. If you disagree read “Gone with the Wind” or “Cabin of Uncle Tom”, such behavior was unthinkable for a slave.
    Listening to you, we should not watch Holocost movies, because it can be very offensive for Jewish people. History is history, we must learn from it and move forward, trying being better.

    Nice to see Jean Dujardin, Leo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill in the same pic! Thanks JJ! Leo looks quite happy.

    Weirdo Says:

    Django Unchained is set to screen this weekend. We’ll see what people have to say about the final cut.
    I expect serious backlash for this film. No doubt it will be quintessential Tarantino and to be released on Christmas day is pure stupidity. Whoever thought that was a good idea should be fired. I guess if you’re going to be offensive might as well go all out.
    The fact that several actors turned this down or dropped out during filming is a pretty good sign that some people did want to touch this with a ten-foot pole. Career suicide.

    Marie J Says:

    It’s gonna earn a majority of its box-office overseas, so even though it isn’t family-oriented Django Unchained will function as counter-programming for males he have already seen the Hobbit, come Christmas day.

  22. 22
    Weirdo Says:

    @Marie J – if that’s the case it’s too bad because then people abroad have this as an example of what slavery in the US was all about. Or at least they will think it is something we as Americans believe is OK to portray in this manner and it is not.

    the fame monster Says:

    @Weirdo
    I think you should reserve judgement until you see the movie (or wait for reviews after film is realeased since you don’t want to see it).
    You are just judging based on the trailer and subject matter. I admit, I don’t like the subject matter but if it’s a good film, I will probably check it out.
    The trailer makes it look campy and cartoonish but I am hearing there are some accurate, albeit, horrible things in there about slavery.

    And the studios always release their Oscar bait at Christmas. It’s the last decent time to release a film before the end of the year if they want to be considered. Many of Leo’s films have been released at that time and none of them were family films. So it’s not a dumb decision, but a pretty normal one by Hollywood.

  24. 24
    Weirdo Says:

    @fame: Django was screened this weekend and someone who saw it tweeted and called it a “3 hour homage to ‘Blazing Saddles’.” Uh yeah….that pretty much says it all right there. I think my judgment about the film based on what has been released to the public are pretty accurate.

    CAN’T wait!!!!! Love you Leo! Muahhhh :)
