Leo DiCaprio At The Revenant London Premiere

Leonardo DiCaprio attended the London Premiere of his latest flick The Revenant. DiCaprio having been rejuvenated with a Golden Globe for this latest epic… Looked his usual self, suited and booted. Although we love Leo, my brain can’t stop thinking that in his attire he resembles a used car salesman. Small details aside let’s hope that he does win a gong for his latest work.

For me, the Aviator had it all. The glitzy event at London’s Leicester Square saw the cast and celebrities attend despite the freezing weather. Hey- ho, we were all there, so the weather is no biggie.

Leonardo DiCaprio commented “This is almost like an experimental art film. It was very well rehearsed and very well thought out, but nonetheless, it was a very chancy movie for people to finance. 

“And it’s been paying off which feels great not only as a fan of movies for me, but it’ll make me be able to make more movies like this which is something I’m excited about.”

“Certainly this movie took up almost a year of my life. For Alejandro (director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu), it was three or four years of his life. 

“So to be recognised like this, it does feel great especially when you put so much into something.”

The Revenant is based on a true story about Pennsylvania-born scout Hugh Glass who is attacked by a bear and then left for dead by his own hunting team.

Asked about how they survived in minus 25C temperatures while filming, DiCaprio said: “He made us work hard but we knew what we were signing up for.

“We knew we weren’t going to do a light-hearted comedy in a set in the valley. We were going out into the middle of the wilderness in sub-zero temperatures. We knew it wasn’t going to be an easy undertaking.
