Leonardo DiCaprio Reveals He Turned Down 'Hocus Pocus' Role

Leonardo DiCaprio suits up to attend a conversation and special screening celebrating his film The Wolf of Wall Street on Thursday (February 13) at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City.

The screening was part of a five-film retrospective of Leo and Martin Scorsese‘s award winning collaboration.

Leo recently revealed that he turned down “more money than I ever dreamed of” to star in the film Hocus Pocus so that he could audition for the movie What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.

“I don’t know where the hell I got the nerve,” Leonardo told Variety. “You live in an environment where you’re influenced by people telling you to make a lot of money and strike while the iron’s hot. But if there’s one thing I’m very proud of, it’s being a young man who was sticking to my guns.”

25+ pictures inside of Leonardo DiCaprio at the screening and conversation…

    Hocus Pocus Says:

    OMG, he must be running out of things to talk about. Dear Leo no one gives a crap about HP. That was donkey ages ago! And he had some money by then so of course its easier to turn stuff down. He was in Gremlins and we will never forget it even though he doesn’t want people to remember that he was in Gremlins. lol He had the nerves when he was younger but it seems like he’s lost all his nerves now. And now he’s an older guy that can’t find his guns….hmmmm…

    Wow so let’s see….I dont think toni has ever had a US mag cover. Nina just got the cover (shared or not) of SI’s 50th anniversary issue??? A mag that just about every guy owns especially the swimsuit issue!

    just an observation….LOL

    Shared or not it`s the 50th anniversary issue. Toni walks into an airport and Nina`s face will be all over the place. That`s quite a Valentine`s Day gift from Leo. lol

    Maybe she’s not insecure in that way. Maybe some people are right, and she knows exactly what she signed up for with Leo
