Leonardo DiCaprio Talks Meeting Martin Scorsese at Age 18!

Leonardo DiCaprio Talks Meeting Martin Scorsese at Age 18!

Leonardo DiCaprio poses with his longtime collaborator, director Martin Scorsese, as well as Wolf of Wall Street co-star Jonah Hill on the cover of THR‘s latest issue.

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

Leo, on meeting Martin for the first time: “I was in New York. I was 18 or so. I had just done What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?, and there was an afterparty at some bar downtown. You (to Scorsese) were there. I quickly bumped into you, and I was sort of paralyzed. And I just sort of stood there, and [you said]: ‘Hey, kid, I saw your movie. You did a great job. Keep it up.’ And I just didn’t say anything.”

Martin, on meeting Jonah for the first time: “The first time I met [Hill] was at the [Oscars]. He was sitting in front of me. He was great, just sitting there.”

Leo, on wanting to keep Wolf of Wall Street as true as possible: “Films exploring [humanity’s] darker nature are the most profound.”
