Leonardo DiCaprio: I Was 'Reluctant' to Tackle 'Great Gatsby'

Leonardo DiCaprio sits down to chat about his upcoming film The Great Gatsby on Good Morning America on Wednesday (May 8) in New York City.

“I read it in junior high school and it made sense to me. It was representative of the roaring twenties. Baz handed me a first edition copy, and as an adult, it takes on a different meaning. It’s really an existential novel,” Leo said about re-visiting the book before accepting the role.

“I was reluctant…what’s so powerful about this novel is everyone has their own interpretation of these characters,” Leo added about maybe not taking the leading role.
