John Leguizamo Reveals How Leonardo DiCaprio Behaved On The Set Of Romeo + Juliet
While speaking with GQ about some of his biggest acting roles, John Leguizamo recalled having a great time on the set of 1996’s “Romeo + Juliet.”
He also gave high praise to Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance in the movie, noting his generosity as an actor and his workhorse nature.
Leguizamo said, “He would give the same performance that he just gave in front of the camera, he would give for you behind the camera. That's how generous an actor he is.”
DiCaprio pulled moviegoers in with his performance as Romeo Montague, and based on Leguizamo's comments, he blew the cast and crew away as well.
This did result in Leguizamo “hating” DiCaprio a bit while they shot the film, but this hatred was more a sign of professional admiration than animosity.
He said, “It came so easy to that little blond, happy golden boy. He'd smoke a cigarette, do some laps, do a Michael Jackson impersonation, go on the set, and there it was.”
