Leonardo DiCaprio's 'Titanic' Role Almost Went to Clueless' Jeremy Sisto

It was recently announced that Clueless‘s Jeremy Sisto was up for Leonardo‘s role in Titanic.

“That was one of the many, many jobs I didn’t get. It’s always fun to see a movie that you know really well and love with this alternate-universe person in there. So while I was a little embarrassed to reveal one of my many failures in life, at the same time I couldn’t deprive Titanic lovers of seeing that alternate universe,” Jeremy shared to Huffington Post.

He added, “It was a pretty great experience. To be involved in something that had that kind of scope β€” anything James Cameron does has this huge scope to it. He’s trying to push the limits on things. So I was just insanely inspired by it and a little heartbroken when the role didn’t come my way.”

  • Scarlett

    It wasn’t recently announced. It’s been known forever. It takes 10 seconds to search you tube and find Jeremy’s screen test. It’s not new news.

  • Jo

    Nice to see him with his Dad, its been a while.
    And to see him wearing a different coloured shirt. lol.

  • https://plus.google.com/+deechattaway Moon Gazer

  • Still Together

    New Thread? Wow Jared To what do we owe the pleasure?? lol

  • CourtneyBettyEricLee

    That’s right Leo whip out pics of you enjoying a day with the family as usual, – this time daddy George – to erase those partying/blunt pics. And before any naive stans come at me to pearl clutch that Leo does not play the game, then you must be as foolish as to think Leo is not the type to get into bed with a model like Pg 6 said. I’m back to ONTD where they are less blind

  • Still Together

    Victoria BC is looking for the wrong Leo? lol

  • Jo

    Are these pictures recent though?
    I’m only asking because those shots of him wearing a black jacket, and getting into the car are not new.
    I saw them on BZ a while back

  • ####

    Those are from when he had lunch with lukas and others at the Beverly hills Hilton. The others are from Friday. I like the pic of him in the bank and he sees the pap and all you see are his eyes above the other mans head! He looks so good in these pics!!! Yummy!!!!

  • Davina

  • Jetstream

  • Mango

    Couldnt have said it any better!! Leo is smiling with his eyes! 😍

  • girl93

    riri? lol let’s forget to talk about her.

  • disqus_huMVeuRCIi

    Yowza! 😍 So is he getting skinny for the role? Or just because? :-)

  • https://plus.google.com/+deechattaway Moon Gazer

    Haha smizing (if you like tyra) lol. He’s so damned adorable.

  • blackcat

    Well he will be sure to attend Kevin’s Connolly birthday like Also… predicted. Glad he dropped the dead weight! So funny how we didnt get pictures of him last weekend even tho he was in LA. I guess this weekend he’s feeling free and sending the world a message!! lol : )

  • Shelly

    Does anyone know if he went to that charity fundraiser Lukas and Kevin and other was on the list I think Rih was performing ?

  • Jo

    Funny isn’t it.

    We know he has been coming to LA often last month, without sightings, for whatever reason ( it even started Leo in LA or Calgary debate) but he managed to never get papped all those times.

  • ####

    It’s probably for the role bc he’s stranded in the wilderness for like a month.

  • IamSteffi

    Hmm

  • Shelly

    So maybe that’s why he let himself go he had to gain than lose jmo.

  • disqus_huMVeuRCIi

    Well here’s to hoping he keeps it up :-)

  • blackcat

    If this woman had looked different everyone would assume Leo was dating this woman or his new girlfriend…lol Smh @people/media…Im sure Daily Fail wont be writing their fan fiction with this woman’s picture even tho there is absolutely nothing wrong with her.

  • blackcat

    Welp groupies lied. They didnt go back to LA yesterday because they had to work they went back because Leo went back. LOL Those B*tchies know they dont have no d*mn jobs unless you consider being on your knees a job??? Maybe they do,..they just might…LOL

  • Soph

    I like his outfit

  • Missy

    His arms look niiiiiiiiiice!!!

  • Cheer Cheers

    Nah Rihanna was in NYC yesterday and flew to Paris from there.

  • george michael

    I wonder if Leo watches Titanic when he’s at home. Just to reminisce on when he used to be attractive and slim.

  • lovenhanced

    But you know the trolls keep talking about how fat he is!!;)

  • lovenhanced

    You wish!

  • disqus_huMVeuRCIi

    Yes but also that looks like a big fat rock on her wedding ring finger.

  • lovenhanced

    Ontd where its full of Leonardo haters! We arent blind here btw. We are all aware of it!

  • villedeville

    He looks like he slimmed down quite a lot. One week he looks bloated and overweight, the next week he’s very slim. It may good look on him, but this yo-yo-ing in body weight could be dangerous to his health.

  • https://plus.google.com/+deechattaway Moon Gazer

    One. I like your name. I’m a huge George Michael fan. And A… leo is like a fine wine. He’s gorgeous even still. More so now. (He grew out of his boyish cuteness and into fantastic manliness!) He’s still very attractive (beauty is in the eye of the beholder) there are still a lot of us who think he looks amazing.

    Slim is overrated. !!

  • lovenhanced

    There has been discussion that he does colonics…..

  • lovenhanced

    Titanic?? The super slim boyish look stopped after the aviator actually Imo.
