As one of the most iconic actors of his generation, Leonardo DiCaprio always pushes himself to new limits to see what he’s capable of achieving.
In his January 2016 cover story for WIRED
magazine, the “Titanic” hunk discusses his latest project, an Alejandro
Inarritu flick called “The Revenant. “Every single day of this movie
was difficult. It was the most difficult film I’ve ever done. You’ll
see, when you see the film- the endurance that we all had to have is
very much up on the screen.
Leo adds, “We had a lot of complications while shooting, because it
was the hottest year in recorded history. In Calgary there were all
these extreme weather events. One day we were trying to do a scene and
it turned out to be 40 below zero, so the gears of the camera didn’t
work. Then twice during the movie we had 7 feet of snow melt in a
day—all of it, within five hours—and we were stuck with two or three
weeks of no snow in a film that’s all snow. So we had to shut down
production multiple times. That’s what happens with climate change; the
weather is more extreme on both ends.”
