Who knew that when you cast Leonardo DiCaprio in a role, it’s advised that you get him to scream in at least one scene? From “I’m the king of the world!” to a series of unrelated “No!” shouts, this fantastic supercut simply titled “Leo DiCaprio Yelling” landed on Huffington Post. Give it a spin.
Personal preference, but I think the clip hits its stride during what can only be described as the “Fuck You” montage. The way DiCaprio holds his “F” sound while revving up a “Fuck you” is pretty awesome, and previously undetected. Now it’s all that I hear.
Now, we’re not trying to say that DiCaprio’s in danger of becoming the next Al Pacino, who works himself into such a lather at inopportune times that his on-screen screaming tirades have become a bit of a pop-culture joke…
… but it is interesting to see the occasions where DiCaprio taps into a well of fury spliced together in one reel. I wouldn’t normally associate DiCaprio with angry characters. A lot of the above supercut is pulled from Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, where DiCaprio plays perhaps his most sinister character to date. Then there are a series of uncomfortable fights from The Departed and Revolutionary Road, where Sam Mendes had Titanic lovers DiCaprio and Kate Winslet turn on each other while their marriage crumbled.
All of this coincides with DiCaprio’s well-earned meltdown in Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, which opens in theaters on May 10. It’s a powerful scene, bolstered by the fact that it has triggered this supercut. Enjoy!
