Paul Rudd Clarifies This Rumor About 'Titanic' & Leonardo DiCaprio's Role in the Film!

Paul Rudd is clarifying the rumor that he turned down the role of Jack Dawson in Titanic, the role that eventually went to Leonardo DiCaprio.

“No, no that’s not true. I was never in the running. I just had a real interest in it because my father was a Titanic expert,” Paul said during a recent appearance on The Ringer‘s “10 Questions With With Kyle Brandt” podcast.

Paul then continued, “That was how he made his living. Talking about the Titanic. So when they announced they were making this film I really wanted to get in on it for my dad. But no we were not in the running.”

In fact, Paul actually helped encourage Leonardo to take the role!
