Leonardo DiCaprio Was Reluctant To Play The Great Gatsby
It’s quite possibly the most iconic character Leo has ever played, which is exactly why he almost turned down the role explaining:
“I was reluctant…because everybody has their interpretation of this character and their own intimate understanding of him.”
To breathe life int the role Leo locked himself away and read the novel repeatedly…dissecting every word.
A lot of critics think all that hard work will pay off and he’ll be walking away with more than a few trophies when awards season rolls around next winter.
