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.”

    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.” lol. Makes it seem like Scorsese couldn’t think of anything particularly complementary to say.

    HAHA12 Says:

    Lol Leo’s shoes..too funny. The story of meeting Marty is so cute, btw Leo and Marty won the Spotlight Award: Career Collaboration from the National Board Of Review and WOWS’s screenwriter Terence Winter won Best Adapted Screenplay! WOWS also placed in their top ten movies list.

    Also here’s the 26 minute interview of Leo, Marty, Jonah Hill, and Terence Winter discussing WOWS. Will watch it later:

    Thanks for posting!

    HAHA12 Says:

    So based on all the early word I’ve been reading WOWS is a really good film and is said to be reminiscent of Scorsese’s GoodFellas but Leo’s sleazy and unlikeable character will be a turn off to many people and some think that the movie glorifies debauchery and drug use. Personally I heard Belfort’s novel does exactly that as well and is incredibly self indulgent so I think they were trying to capture the novel as best as they can. Apparently Belfort’s novel is poorly written and really bad but WOWS is written excellently. The movie won’t be for everyone but Zzzz like you said I think I’ll really love it! It looks so modern despite being set in the 80s/90s. And apparently it doesn’t make the audience sympathize or show remorse for Belfort which is a good thing since he does not deserve it.

    HAHA12 Says:

    No problem, I’m gonna watch it a little later. Hopefully some funny stories are joke about the production of the film.

    HAHA12 Says:

    Also, I’ve been the words ‘crazy’ ‘dirty’ and ‘masterpiece’ describing the movie the most, lol I can’t wait for this. It’s said Leo snorts coke off a woman’s ass or vag, not sure which one LMAO

    HAHA12 Says:

    Same here! I’m not sure when I’ll be able to see it because I still need to find someone to watch it with but hopefully I see it opening day. Did you see this tweet about it? LMAO
