Leonardo DiCaprio almost lost his role in ‘Titanic’

The Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio established himself as a celluloid star thanks to the award-winning ‘Titanic’ (1997), the James Cameron film that won no less than eleven golden statuettes and that served the interpreter to show that, in addition to being a youth idol, he was a more than solvent interpreter.

Interestingly, the filmmaker has now revealed that DiCaprio was on the verge of losing the role, all due to the haughty attitude he exhibited in the casting process. After a very fruitful first meeting, the director invited the artist to do a camera test which, in this case, involved reading the text. That requirement was not to the liking of the actor, who thought that he had already arranged the job.

“Then he came a couple of days later and we already had the camera ready to record the video. But he didn’t know he was on a test and he said, ‘You say I have to read? Oh no, I don’t read.’ I shook his hand and replied: ‘Thank you for coming,'” Cameron revealed in conversation with GQ magazine, after explaining that DiCaprio only hoped to meet that day who would be his partner in the plot, Kate Winslet.

As can be seen from James Cameron’s statements, the Hollywood star couldn’t believe that the director wanted to get rid of him simply because of his refusal to audition.

“Wait, wait, wait, are you telling me that if I don’t read, I don’t get the role? Is it that simple?” DiCaprio snapped, to which the filmmaker replied flatly. “Oh, of course. Come on, this is a giant movie that’s going to take up two years of my life. I’m not going to screw it up by making a bad casting decision. So you’re going to read, or you’re out of the part.” “, he demanded.
