DiCaprio didn’t want to star in ‘Titanic’!
“Titanic” is one of the names in the history of world cinema. Released in 1997, this movie is not only timeless but has captured the hearts of different generations of viewers. So, twenty-five years after its release, the film is still debated.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet starred in James Cameron’s ‘Titanic’. It is the most successful film of their careers for both of them. But you will be surprised to learn that DiCaprio did not want to act in this film! Because he found the story of ‘Titanic’ ‘boring’!
James Cameron recently told a magazine about it. He said: “DiCaprio didn’t want to play the central role in the film. He thought the photo was boring. For this reason, he had to be persuaded in various ways. Leo only agreed after I was able to convince him that this was a really tough challenge for him.
The actor and producer commented on DiCaprio’s reluctance to star in “Titanic” a few months ago. Cameron said Kate Winslet was screen tested for the role of Rose. But DiCaprio disagreed.
James Cameron commented on this incident: “I was ready with the camera setup for the look test. But Leo didn’t know his test was in progress. He thought it was another encounter with Kate. Then go to another room and ask them to say a dialogue. But DiCaprio didn’t want to go. I then got angry and asked him to leave. DiCaprio then asks, “If I don’t speak the dialogue, won’t I get the part?” I say, it’s a great film on canvas. Two years of my life will pass behind. So I don’t want to make any casting mistakes. Either you read it or you don’t understand the character.”
After hearing Cameron’s words, DiCaprio did a screen test. The later story is more or less known to everyone.
Meanwhile, on the 25th anniversary of its release, “Titanic” is hitting theaters again. The film will be released in 4K on February 10. But it will take a few days.
Note that James Cameron made ‘Titanic’ by combining various fictional characters with the sinking of the famous ‘RMS Titanic’. The film, made on a budget of $200 million, won the title of one of the most successful films of all time, earning $2.195 billion worldwide.
