Leonardo DiCaprio: 'Titanic' Was Experiment With Kate Winslet

Leonardo DiCaprio snaps a photo with Robert De Niro while hanging out inside the 2016 amfAR New York Gala held at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday evening (February 10) in New York City.

The 41-year-old Revenant star skipped the carpet, but showed up to support movie producer Harvey Weinstein, who was being honored that night.

Leo recently opened up about the massive success of Titanic.

Titanic was very much an experiment for Kate Winslet and I,” Leo told Deadline. “We’d done all of these independent movies. I loved her as an actress and she said, ‘Let’s do this together, we can do this.’ We did it, and it became something that we could’ve never foreseen.”

He added, “My whole life became about things that weren’t about acting.”

    I 100% believe that tea about them not getting along super well during The Aviator. I don’t think they care for each other much so this is about to be awkward.

  • dicaprioistheone

    Bobby D and Leo D, two of the greatest, if not the greatest, to ever do it. DeNiro has aged really well. I would love to see them reunite on screen.

  • Zzzzzz
  • dicaprioistheone

    I’m actually surprised they are not sitting together. This Kate-Leo narrative is beginning to overshadow certain aspects of the award season, even #Oscarssowhite to a degree. I was thinking the powers that be at these award ceremonies would want to play that up more to further divert attention away from the diversity controversy and potentially boost ratings. They could bill it as a Titanic reunion. But maybe that’s more of an American thing. Wherever he sits, I just hope he wins. || T-minus 17 days to Oscar :-)

  • Dis gonna be gud

    OMG I didn’t. Well this changes things. Thanks for posting this. Where is this from??

  • Dis gonna be gud

    It’s probably an American thing so I’m not that surprised. I’m sure at the Oscars will sit Kate and Leo closer together.

    Wow in almost two weeks we’ll be able to call him Academy Award Winner Leonardo DiCaprio. Soo excited

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! It’s from Armani’s 40th Anniversary bash – May 12015. It’s a fantastic shot. Love Leo and Cate!

    So would they feel better if he was surrounded by old wrinkly men? 😒

    And LOL at “work schedules keeping them apart” that woman was two steps behind him everywhere he went

  • girl93

    who is the brunette who is talking with him?

  • girl93

    Yeah, Bobby D need to do other type of movies instead those crappy comedies!!

  • Maria Pierre

    A girl on bz said that it was Alina Baikova,but i don’t know,i don’t think it’s her…

  • girl93

    Oh well, just another model

  • Guess

    GM ladies! I was reading the response on DM that said Blake dumped Leo for Ryan. I think it was mentioned here Blake played Leo. I was not following at the time. I thought like now he did not want to settle down. The response to the comment was the same. Anyone can enlightened me🤔. If she did play him maybe one of the reasons he continues to date and not married. I also think Leo is not going to be pressured as well. I think this is what went wrong with Gisselle. As for Bar, I agree with the poster that said he dodged the bullet on that one👏. Enjoy your day. I’m off today and very cold on the East Coast.

  • Guess

    By the way, I want to send out love and prayers to Just Saying. I think she mentioned last time posted was going into the hospital this month . Hope all is well, ☺️😊.

    BAFTA red carpet live starting from 17:00 (5 pm) Western Europe time.
    (Remember GB is one hour behind the rest of Western Europe)
    http://www.bafta.org/film/awards/red-carpet-live

  • Tigerlilly

    One of my favorites shots of him :)

  • Tigerlilly

    Yeah, but ‘Titanic’ is just one movie with an unexpected success and nothing like ‘Twilight’ with a large crazy fanbase long before the movies LOL

  • Fangirl

    Leo is back to his comfort zone. LOL.

  • Tata

    No one played anyone. That was a stupid Lainey ‘narrative’ that became a fact because the truth was too boring and mundane for gossip blogs.
    They met during Gatsby trials, they were seen circling each other for a while; they publicly came out in 2011, dated, it did not work out. Apparently Blake wanted commitment and marriage; Leo, did not.
    But there was definitely hurt feelings on both sides for a while.

  • Fangirl

    Is Leo already in London or still in NYC?

  • Tata

    LOL. But there are no gaggle of models surrounding him.
    Leo’s sitting between Georgina Chapman and and Uma Thurman; and there is no story (yet) of him mingling or living it up. Daily Fail strikes again!

  • Jo

    Thanks

  • Jo

    If he is that was quick enough to make my head spin!

  • Fangirl

    So the blonde is Uma Thurman, that’s why she looks so familiar to me.

  • Hello=)

    IMO it seemed to me Leo liked Blake more than Blake liked Leo.

  • Jo

    Read this on another site, quote from an Aussie DJ, whose girlfriend was an extra on Gatsby:

    “Blake broke up with Leo over the phone and when he went to the cast dinner that night, ***** said he was upset and kept trying staring at his phone”.

  • Jo

    That’s awful.

    Didn’t know that. Best wishes to Just Sayin

  • Fangirl

    How dare you Blake Lively!!! 😡

  • Jo

    Lol

    Toni/Bar/Blake/Erin response after the upteenth picture of Leo with Nina Agdal, Kat Torres, Anna Jagdoninska, Anne V e.t.c while with them.

  • Shelly
  • dicaprioistheone

    Wahoo!

  • Jo

    LOL.

    There was another shot where he seemed to look at the camera; to make sure there was a clearer shot of the Pain. lol

    Can’t seem to find it.

  • dicaprioistheone

    Agreed. I think he’s above the roles he’s accepting right now.

  • ####

    I didn’t know his dad was a part of Appian Way. That’s cool. I think his mom is a member of the board for his foundation.

    I remember all the news from that era I do not know how much of it is true but it was mostly believed Blake and Ryan used Leo because ryan cheated on Scarlett (they were newly married back then)with Blake while they were filming green lantern and it went all public there were countless rumours and sightings of them together. They needed to make damage control so they tried to save their image (which was already down with their flobbed movie) Scarlett and Ryan headed to divorce and Blake found herself a high profiled “boyfriend” to show off to press every single day ( you remember all that europe trip Leo and Blake photographed nonstopped together it was so obviously pr) make it look like she is not the reason for their divorce but back then everybody was saying Blake and Ryan was together all this time and Leo was just a pr move for them
