The question that will probably dog director James Cameron to his death bed still has the power to baffle and mystify him.
Leonardo DiCaprio's bravura performance as a man on quaaludes in 'The Wolf of Wall Street' was a stand-out (if not a stand-up) sequence from the 2012 Martin Scorsese movie.
Studio courts Oscar-winning star for standalone prequel centred on Batman's arch-nemesis - and Jared Leto is said to be displeased.
Icebergs still appear to be a matter of deep concern to Billy Zane, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.

Scorsese tried to answer the question on what Robbie is like by waxing lyrical about her "comedic genius" and "all-bets-off feistiness," reminiscent of classic Hollywood actresses. But what really convinced Scorsese that Robbie was right for her part in The Wolf of Wall Street was her "unique audacity" — which, well, basically means her giving Leonardo DiCaprio one across the face. "She clinched her part in The Wolf of Wall Street during our first meeting — by hauling off and giving Leonardo DiCaprio a thunderclap of a slap on the face, an improvisation that stunned us all," he wrote. Robbie recounted the moment in an interview with Harper's Bazaar back in 2015, where she barely got a word in during an improvised scene between herself and a "phenomenal" DiCaprio. She had to make her mark in the next scene, an argument between the couple: "In my head I was like, 'You have literally 30 seconds left in this room and if you don't do something impressive nothing will ever come of it. It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance, just take it," Robbie said. So when she was told to come over and kiss DiCaprio, in character as the unstable Jordan Belfort, Robbie did the opposite. "Another part of my brain clicks and I just go, Whack! I hit him in the face. And then I scream, 'Fuck you!' And that's not in the script at all. The room just went dead silent and I froze," she said. "And then all of a sudden Marty and Leo just burst out laughing. Marty says, 'That was great!' Leo's like, 'Hit me again!'" Robbie added. It was a slap that forged a career. Scorsese finished his attempt to explain what Robbie is like with one last quip: "This is not a complete answer to the perennial question, but it's a start. Margot is stunning in all she is and all she does, and she will astonish us forever." WATCH: There's now a Roomba for your lawn, but it'll cost ya
DiCaprio to blame? The biggest moment of the 2017 Oscars came when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway incorrectly announced ‘La La Land’ as the Best Picture winner when the actual winner was ‘Moonlight’. It’s since emerged that Beatty was actually holding the envelope for Best Actress which announced ‘La La Land’s Emma Stone as the winner, so you can understand the confusion from the presenters. Some people on Twitter are suggesting that it’s all Leonardo DiCaprio’s fault.
Eight-year-old Cora Cartmell was the youngster from third class on the doomed Titanic, who Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jack deemed his ‘best girl’. Cora was played all that time ago – 20 years this year, in fact – by Alexandrea Owens-Sarno, who is now an actual grown-up person, oddly enough.
Leonardo DiCaprio will star in and produce an adaptation of Stephan Talty’s book The Black Hand for Paramount Pictures. DiCaprio will play Joe Petrosino, a NYPD cop who goes after the ruthless gang (with the calling card black hand) that migrated from Italy to America. The thugs kidnapped people and then extorted money from their families.
After a lengthy absence of working together, director Danny Boyle and actor Ewan McGregor have rekindled their once strong relationship for ‘T2: Trainspotting’. The 1990s saw Boyle, an emerging director, and McGregor, a fresh-faced actor to the industry, team up for ‘Shallow Grave’, ‘Trainspotting’, and ‘A Life Less Ordinary’ between 1994 to 1997.
The return of a heavy-breathing dark lord, first contact like we’ve never seen it before, a humanitarian scrapping with a CGI bear, a 20-storey Paul Rudd – it’s safe to say that in 2016, we’ve seen it all.
Leonardo DiCaprio may have said that Donald Trump should ‘not be allowed to hold public office’ prior to the US election, but he now appears to have accepted the outcome. Terry Tamminen, the CEO of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (LDF), confirmed the meeting to the Associated Press. “Today, we presented the president-elect and his advisors with a framework – which LDF developed in consultation with leading voices in the fields of economics and environmentalism – that details how to unleash a major economic revival across the United States that is centred on investments in sustainable infrastructure,” he said in a statement.
2016. Hailed by no one as ‘the best year ever’, it’s been as tumultuous on-set as it has been out there in the real world. Herein lie some of the biggest scandals of the year… Hellish conditions on The Revenant Sure it was a realistic portrayal of the brutality of the wilderness, but the over-budget, over-schedule set of Alejandro G. Inarritu’s ‘The Revenant’ was described as ‘a living hell‘ by some. ...
Leonardo DiCaprio’s eco-charity the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, has been linked to donations from a Malaysian playboy embroiled in a vast money-laundering scam, it has emerged. Millions of dollars in donations are said to have been made to the foundation by businessman Jho Low, who is among those at the centre of a scandal involving the embezzlement of $3 billion from a Malaysian wealth fund called 1MDB. It’s said that 35-year-old Low, a friend of DiCaprio, used some of the stolen money from the fund at lavish LDF galas thrown by the star, like one in St. Tropez in July, which saw guests flown in via helicopter.
After it emerged that Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio had a doppelganger, he’s now made his very own acting debut in a bizarre advert for Russian television. The ad that last just under a minute, is a strange but sort of wonderful tribute to the Hollywood actor, as we see lookalike Roman Burtsev, a 33-year-old security guard, assume a role that, without making direct reference to the ‘The Revenant’ star, gives us the clear indication that we’re seeing a version Leo.
As well as pretending to be 007 in an episode of ‘The Saint’, Moore actually starred as the spy in a March 1964 episode of BBC show ‘Mainly Millicent’. In the sketch, he goes for lunch with a Russian agent played by the show’s star Millicent Martin and punches a waiter. Luckily for him, Cubby Broccoli still thought he was the perfect man for the big-screen job.
It appears that the actor’s accolade has drawn fans to all kinds of DiCaprio-based ephemera, including the spinning tops he uses as a 'totem’ in the Christopher Nolan movie 'Inception’. Burton-On-Trent-based designer Will Cutler has seen an unprecedented surge in orders for his Vorso MK1 top, according to The Independent.
