Are Leonardo DiCaprio & Quentin Tarantino fighting on the set of ‘Django Unchained’?

The Enquirer loves to make Leonardo DiCaprio sound like a mega-bitch. I have no idea if Leo really is this bitchy, but I tend to think that if he was, we would have heard about it by someone other than The Enquirer, you know? In the past, the Enquirer has claimed that Leo did not get along with Clint Eastwood whatsoever, and now they’re claiming that Leo has had words with his latest director, Quentin Tarantino. Oooh, girls.

When LEONARDO DICAPRIO accidentally got clocked in the kisser by co-star JAMIE FOXX and suffered a bloody lip during a fight scene for new flick “Django Unchained,” he cursed angrily, but NOT at Jamie – whirling instead on director QUENTIN TARANTINO, bellowing, “You #&*%$#@*!!”

Reports My On-Set Spy: “Going into the scene, Leo was already feeling testy because he was wearing heavy-duty, vintage handcuffs that were chafing his wrists.

“When cameras rolled, Jamie – playing a bounty hunter – swung his hands up violently, hitting Leo’s wrists and slamming the cuffs into his mouth.

“Instantly, Leo started cursing out Quentin. He was furious because they’d had a fight earlier about how the fight scene should be filmed – but Leo lost, so they did it the director’s way.”

As blood dripped from Leo’s lip and crew members rushed in with wet cloths and ice, the star snarled at Tarantino: “I’ve done four MARTIN SCORSESE films without a scratch – and then I work with YOU!”

The scene was shot hours later, after ice packs and makeup artists made Leo screen-ready.

Now, I can see a dude (any dude) being angry because he got injured, especially if the damage was foreseeable. I also wonder if Quentin’s directing style mixes well with Leo’s acting style, and whether or not there’s tension simply because this is the first time they’re working together. But, at the end of the day, everyone always says that Leo is a total pro, and that Quentin is a friendly, fun-loving genius. If Leo made a crack about Martin Scorsese, it was probably said jokingly? I don’t know. Maybe Leo is a bitch.

On the flip side, I had forgotten how many casting changes were made with this film. I seem to remember Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, and Chiwetel Ejiofor all being considered for various parts. Now it stars Leo, Jamie Foxx, Sacha Baron Cohen, Christoph Waltz and Kurt Russell. Weird.

  1. OT question? says:

    Any word on who is playing Jano, now that Joseph Gordon Levitt is out?

  2. Tiffany27 says:

    While his part may be small, Walton Goggins (Boyd Crowder from Justified) is in this too! I love that dude.

    • lucy2 says:

      That’s kind of the only reason I clicked on this link!

      I bet the report is exaggerated, Leo seems pretty professional.

  3. inessa says:

    The movie that you’re thinking about Kaiser is A Thousand Years A Slave, and it’s Steve McQueen who’s going to direct it. You mixed the two movies.

  4. iloveretro says:

    I’m so bummed out to learn Sacha Baron Cohen is in this. I don’t even care that he won’t be doing his usual schtick. Just, ugh.

  5. Cait says:

    Ugh, Leo really has not aged well…and why is he so perpetually greasy looking??

    • LaChick says:

      Well everyone has their own tastes but I like the older Leo best the younger one was cute but too young looking <3

  6. Zelda says:

    Seriously, Leo, who has a goatee anymore? Gross.

  7. French says:

    There was a rumour according to which he had a fight with Eastwood

  8. Ari says:

    Leo needs to get over it. I mean seriously its Tarantino. I am surprised a real gun hasn’t gone off at some point on his set LOL he has CRAZY FILMS and CRAZY actors who do CRAZY stuff. They all know what they are getting into. Leo thinks his Sh*t dont stink apparently and needs to be coddled to like a precious stone. Take the hit and man up. Its just a movie! GET A BANDAID!

  9. Alexis says:

    being a director must be tough

  10. bns says:

    They’re both hotheaded egomaniacs, so I wouldn’t be surprised if this is true.

  11. Insertrandomname says:

    Yay another Leo-article! :D :D:D:D:D haha

  12. says:

    Weird. None of those people belong together in a film (well maybe Waltz and Leo I can see) but oddly enough I want to see how they get on with each other.

  13. LaChick says:

    Poor Leo!! I can kiss his lips better <3 Stupid director and stupid Jamie Foxx :p

  14. Freckles says:

    I can vouch for Leo! Kind of… I met him in a bar in Rome when he was filming Gangs of New York. He was very polite, down to earth and not at all egotistical. I’ve had a huge crush every since. Still, maybe he just loosens up when he’s having a beer at the end of the day, but I will always believe that he’s one of the nice guys. Funny story – my friend didn’t lock the door when she was using the toilet and Leo walked in on her (only one loo in this bar) with her trousers round her ankles. Hilarious! He waited outside, introduced himself and apologised. Very sweet guy.
