Leonardo DiCaprio is an intense actor to say the least. Directors love working with the 41-year-old Oscar winner because he lives and breaths his characters. DiCaprio is known for portraying strong, passionate, and highly emotional roles of conflicted and often anti-hero types.
Actors who have the privilege to work with DiCaprio often discuss the admiration they have for his work ethic, talent, and personality. Despite his constant need to avoid the glare of the paparazzi, the man leads a regular life for all intense and purpose. Most co-stars are surprised to find out how humble and friendly he is.
This week, we all got a glimpse of DiCaprio like never before when he played a prank on actor and past co-stat Jonah Hill. Perhaps he took his own experience with overzealous fans and paparazzi to give his friend the scare of a lifetime.
This past Monday, Leonardo DiCaprio was walking through the streets of New York city.
The actor had a drink in on one hand and his mobile on the other. Out of the blue he walked away from his group and started walking fast.
DiCaprio had spotted Jonah Hill his co-star from The Wolf of Wall Street.
He acted like an intruding fan or paparazzi to take the actor’s photo with his phone.
Hill didn't recognize his friend right away. Needless, to say he looked surprised and scared.
Hill was in New York to promote his new film War Dogs.
Not until he realized it was his friend Leo being silly that Hill finally relaxed and laughed it off.
When he was asked about the incident, Hill admitted, “it was funny! I was totally taken off guard.”
"I was scared sh-tless,” says Hill of the incident.
It’s fair to say these two are pretty good buddies after they hugged it out. Who wouldn’t love getting pranked by none other than DiCaprio?
