American actor Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the best Hollywood actors in the industry and is critically acclaimed for playing roles in biopics and period films. Despite being a renowned personality, he was once scolded by prolific actor Samuel L. Jackson when his role once required him to use a racial slur that made him uncomfortable on the set. The widely recognized actor of his generation, Jackson was never afraid to use that slur and had defended writer-director Quentin Tarantino when the latter used it in his movies.
Jamie Foxx Shared About Leonardo DiCaprio Was Hesitant to Use Racial Slurs
American actor Jamie Foxx speaking in QT8: The First Eight, a documentary portraying Quentin Tarantino’s career, shared that the 47-year-old actor, Leonardo DiCaprio was uncomfortable saying the N-word during the filming of Django Unchained back in 2012.
Foxx shared, “Leonardo DiCaprio had a problem saying the word ‘n*****'” stating that the 73-year-old actor Samuel L Jackson had to scold his co-star to speak the n-word.
Imitating his dialogue, Foxx shared, “Pal, pal, it’s tough for me to say this.”
He stated, “I remember Samuel L Jackson going, ‘Get over here, motherf***er, this is just another Tuesday motherf**ker. I don’t give a f**k about these motherf***ers, look at who I am, motherf***er.'”
Foxx then advised DiCaprio to think from the point of view of a slave-owner. He said, “I said, ‘Leo, we’re not friends, this is just another Thursday. This is your property. These aren’t humans. This is your property.'”
Though he added, “And when Leo came in the next day, it was literally like… ‘What’s up Leo? What’s up fam?’ He didn’t speak.”
After that, DiCaprio handled his character way better than before.
