Leonardo DiCaprio Talks Meeting Martin Scorsese at Age 18!
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.”
