According to the tab’s “on-set spy,” DiCaprio supposedly “demanded a retake on a scene” because he felt he hadn’t “shocked enough,” but Eastwood refused.
DiCaprio allegedly wouldn’t take no for an answer, and “got upset and demanded that Clint reshoot the scene.”
Apparently, the director then “turned to the cameraman, and said, in a quiet Dirty Harry rasp: ‘He can shoot it again
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio held a pre-New Year’s Eve party at his private villa in Cabo San Lucas.

Guests at the party included Naomi Campbell and her boyfriend, Russian billionaire and property mogul Vladimir Doronin, Kid Rock, Nicky Hilton and fiancé David Katzenberg.

Leonardo DiCaprio was once known as the Hollywood heartthrob but now, the highly successful actor has an even more sensational acting career to go along his killer looks! The Inception star is Forbes Magazine’s Highest-Grossing Star of 2010, with his movies earning $1.1 billion at the global box office.
Not only has DiCaprio collaborated with highly respected actors and directors like Martin Scorsese for Shutter Island and Christopher Nolan in Inception, the films that DiCaprio was credited lead in were box office gold.
According to the guidelines for Forbes’ list of the year’s Top-Grossing stars, the magazine looked only at box office gross which is the earnings for top films of the year, and then credited each lead actor or actress.
Coming in at second place is Mia Wasikowska, who played Alice in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. The film made over $1 billion worldwide. Wasikowska’s co-star Johnny Depp came in third place.
Aretha Wilson, the woman who slashed Leonardo DiCaprio’s face in 2005 has FINALLY been sentenced to a measly two years in prison. She pled no contest, and hopefully won’t get out early for good behavior.
DiCaprio has a restraining order against her, but according to reports, she thought he was her ex-boyfriend and that’s why she attacked him. So the restraining order probably won’t do any good. Hopefully her ex also has a restraining order!
Wilson is from Canada and NBC reports she will be deported back there after she does her time. The attack occurred at a party hosted by Rick Salomon, who was Paris Hilton’s boyfriend at the time. According to the Examiner, Wilson started screaming profanities at DiCaprio, and when he turned away from her, she hit him in the face with a drinking glass, which broke and slashed his face and neck.
It took five years to bring this woman to justice because shortly after the incident, she ran back to Canada and had to be extradited back to the U.S. The judge at sentencing was not allowed to consider the fact that she has a prior conviction for slashing on her record in Canada. In that case, the boyfriend she slashed later died.
DiCaprio suffered cuts and bruises to his face. He reportedly needed 17 stitches to close severe gashes to his face and ear.
Wilson went to Canada after the attack and returned to Los Angeles to face the charge earlier this year.
It seems like ages have past since Leonardo played drug-addicted Jim Carroll in the 1995 Scott Kalvert directed movie The Basketball Diaries. In a recent interview with Mark Wahlberg, who was also in the movie, he reminiscent of the time when Leonardo and him met to work together for the very first time.
But Leonardo DiCaprio was the star, and he wasn’t impressed by the idea of playing opposite the former Marky Mark. “He was not into it,” Wahlberg says. “And, I tell you, I wasn’t convinced he was the right guy to be playing this street legend. …But, you know, when we finally got in a room together, we hit it off. There was like this instant level of respect, and we went out that night partying and have been friends ever since.”
It’s great to see that even in shallow Hollywood a friendship can last a lifetime sometimes.
