We're SO excited to see this movie! (And yes, partially because our hearts still go on for Leo...)
A Prada-clad Leonardo DiCaprio attended the New York City premiere of The Great Gatsby on Wednesday evening, and he was joined by co-stars Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire, along with his close pal Jay-Z and a slew of other celebs.
“The last two films that I’ve done have been period pieces infused with hip-hop,” Leo told MTV when asked about the modern music in his latest film. “So it’s really cool that these directors take that chance, and I think it really connects with audiences today."
He continued, “I think it sort of seamlessly meshes into the film in a way that’s almost startling. You don’t feel like you’re watching something from a different era. You’re connecting with these people and this time period in a much more subversive way.”
Isn't it crazy to think that Leo worked with director Baz Luhrmann 18 years ago on Romeo + Juliet?! Glad to see they still have that magic!
