In the film industry it is common for there to be favorite actors and those preferred by directors, mainly because those responsible for casting They know which actors are most popular with the audience, so from the beginning they seek to raise interest by hiring someone loved and recognized by fans.
That is why celebrities must work hard to advance on that popularity list, because not even they are saved from being rejected by someone “better”. Even with this, there are actors who enjoy so much recognition that rejection is not part of their vocabulary. One of them is Leonardo DiCaprio, 47, who from a very young age became unmatched in fame that keeps him at the top to date.
This is not a secret for the spectators and neither for the actors of DiCaprio’s age, because even Christian Bale, 48, confessed in a recent interview with GQ who owes his career to the actor The wolf of Wall Street, because he is aware that any male role is offered first to him.
Look, to this day, whatever role someone gets, it’s only because he passed it on beforehand. It doesn’t matter what others tell you. It doesn’t matter how friendly you are with the directors. All those people that I’ve worked with multiple times, they all offered him each of those roles first. One of those people told me that.
It is hard to imagine that an actor of the magnitude of Christian Bale, the man responsible for bringing Batman and Patrick Bateman to life in american psychopath, has achieved these roles being the second option. Despite being a confession almost impossible to believe, Bale does not declare himself upset or anything like that, on the contrary, he applauds the talent of his partner.
I can’t do what he does. I wouldn’t want the exposure he has either. And he does it magnificently. But I suspect pretty much everyone in Hollywood of a similar age to him owes their careers to him, whatever the project.
The conversation began after Bale revealed that he had participated in the casting for the character of Jack in the Titanics, one of the roles that catapulted DiCaprio straight to fame and for which he is recognized to this day.
Although Leonardo DiCaprio’s talent is undeniable, the truth is that we cannot imagine him in the roles of Christian, who for many is the best Batman and one of the most prolific talents in Hollywood.
