Matthew McConaughey Auditioned for Leonardo DiCaprio's 'Titanic' Role & Really Wanted It

Matthew McConaughey really wanted to play the role of Jack Dawson in Titanic opposite Kate Winslet, but he wasn’t ever offered the role.

“I went and auditioned. I wanted that,” the 49-year-old Oscar winner told THR on their Awards Chatter podcast. “I auditioned with Kate Winslet, had a good audition, walked away from there pretty confident that I had it. I didn’t get it. I never got offered that. And as I’ve said before not even half jokingly if it’s true, if that was an offer and it didn’t come to me, I’ve got to go back and go, ‘I’ve got to meet in an alley with that agent.’”

The role, of course, went to Leonardo DiCaprio.

    Instead, you were offered the role of 1:56, shoving 2 girls and a cup down my throat while you whimpered in glee, teary eyed. How’s your heart? You might wanna keep an eye on that. Stealing my poetry will get you killed.

    Ikr? So random.

  • Lewisbieber

    They both are very poor actors

    Leo is posting fans on his IG story that voted! Love that I wish he did more social media stuff with fans

    He is getting older maybe both lol? Anyone with a brain knows he hasn’t figured out his personal life or is lacking in self confidence. Other people who are younger and haven’t made it to that part of their lives yet think this is ok and don’t understand why having a new 20 something year old girlfriend every year is a problem and think it’s an accomplishment.

  • asleo

    But the problems is that people is calling him a pedo and HE KNOWS THATS.. he have mental problems
    And #metoo

  • Surfgirl

    I think the bigger issue is that these relationships, that come across to not be that important to him, are starting to overshadow all his professional endeavors in acting, producing and environmental work.

  • asleo

    Yesss thats what i mean… its a shame… because he work so hard

  • asleo

    Definily something happend with emily mace and camila and leo… emily dont follow camila or lucila or even leo anymore. And emily delate all the pic of lucila and her from her insta… weird
    Edit: they are still there but im rigth about the pics… its only one in her IG..

  • Ashley taylor

    I don’t think Leo cares what anyone says. Him bringing this girl to the Lacma gala, leading her to his table was a bold move (agree to disagree on that). Now she’s probably running his Instagram account for him.

    I’m going to sit back and wait for Camila’s “tell all” book. So she can tell us at what age she started sleeping with Leo and Eli. 🍿 🍷

  • Alyssa

    she already told about her 5 hours handjobs for Leo

  • Alyssa

    and the whole industry already knows she got all roles through sex with Eli. Doubt she will have any career, so the book is needed.

  • Alyssa

    I see IMG really keeps his balls hard lol
    Now she needs the extra creepy story repeating AGAING to be knownmentioned atleast somehow. Also that covering of Eli Roth ass who fucked her when she was underage.
    LMAO

  • Helen

    Lol really? And she was singing the praises of both momma and daughter earlier this year calling them “family” LOL 😂

  • disqus_rbXioNurFu

    Damn you’re right! Emily and Alex are long time Leo friends. Isn’t Leo a godfather to one or both of their daughters??? I wonder what happened for Emily to stop following Leo and Camo and momager?

    Edit: disregard they are there.

  • disqus_rbXioNurFu

    Yep she sure was. Something big must have gone down because come to think of it I don’t think she or her husband were at any of Leo’s beach parties over the summer.

  • Alyssa

    Al is out to not pay for the whores so all “friends” and “family” are not interested in them, aging modelizer is the next on exit…so the escort family will be left with Eli, only because he is afraid. lol

  • Helen

    Did Emily used to date Leo at some point?

  • LeoRises

    Why are you lying? Why do people fall for your BS? She still follows all 3 of them. You’re such a lying troll.

  • Surfgirl

    Did Lorena finally get her teeth fixed?

  • asleo

    I was telling you about 2 month And she have probably 4 or 5 pics of her and lucila and now disapear from her insta

  • Surfgirl

    Nah emily still follows all 3 of them

  • Surfgirl

    Yeah your trolling

  • asleo

    No. I dont see emily follow.. And i follow camila and lucila and leo… did they block Me? Im so confusing

  • disqus_rbXioNurFu

    I don’t think so but I wouldn’t stake my life on it. lol

  • disqus_rbXioNurFu

    Okay so this is annoying that you look one way and find nothing and you have to look another way to get the right info. :-( I hate IG!

  • asleo

    What way…. I dont see and why she delate the 4 pics with lucila???

  • disqus_rbXioNurFu

    There’s a group pic with Emily and the momager from last November. I didn’t see any others though so who knows. I didn’t know how many she had on her IG.

  • disqus_rbXioNurFu

    You have to look at Emily’s IG and they’re all there.

  • asleo

    I dont see… my insta dont work or what…… 🤔 and i dont see that emily still follow lucila or leo.. if its my insta sorry guys….

  • Annabelle

    Thanks! The other thread has been infected with trolls!

  • disqus_rbXioNurFu

    You’re the one who told asleo to come over here and get off the thread with the trolls and now you’re calling her a troll? You do know English isn’t her first language and I made the same assumption too until I saw your comment that they were all there so I looked under Emily’s IG and found them there. Not everyone is an IG whiz either.

  • Alyssa

    who cares, its another escort who will end bad

  • asleo

    Thanks i dont troll anybody…. I just post what i see… I dont lie… I cant see the pics or emily follow lucila..
    Sorry if my insta dont work…😣

  • Annabelle

    I did think the same as asleo – they stopped being invited to hang at the house with them, Emily and also no more pics. But I think in general the whole family are not invited during the day anymore that I know of or that has been posted 🤔

  • disqus_rbXioNurFu

    There are different ways to look at who people are following and I always do it one way and forget about the other way. It’s no big deal.

  • Annabelle

    Oh whoa she stopped following Leo – I know that she stopped following Lucila

  • Helen

    You said lucila blocked you maybe that could be why it doesn’t show for you, but don’t worry forget it! 😀

  • Helen

    Lol!! 😜
