Mark Wahlberg Dishes on Former Feud with Leonardo DiCaprio
During his recent sit down with the Hollywood Reporter, the Boston-native chats about the feud with his “Departed” co-star.
“Leonardo was like, ‘Over my dead f***ing body. Marky Mark’s not going to be in this f***ing movie,’” Wahlberg explained about Leo’s reaction to a previous casting announcement.
“Because we’d had a thing — I didn’t even realize it, [but] I was a bit of a d*ck to him at a charity basketball game. So he was like, ‘This f***ing a**hole is not going to be in this movie.’”
Mark went on to discuss how he and DiCaprio reconciled after the “Titanic” hunk agreed to do a reading with him for the flick.
“So I come in and I do the audition and I kind of look at him and he kind of looks at me, and then we do a scene, and they’re like, ‘Hmm, this f***ing dude’s pretty good, right?’”
“The next thing you know, boom, we’re hanging out,” Mark finished.
