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.
