Leonardo DiCaprio says Titanic fame almost ruined himNovember 18th, 2008 - 4:55 pm ICT by ANI
London, Nov 18 (ANI): Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio has admitted that he was too young and immature to cope with the fame he received after starring in Titanic.
The 34-year-old actor became a star overnight after landing the lead role in the 1997 film alongside Kate Winslet.
However, DiCaprio has admitted that he was not mature enough to handle the fame, which came along with the success of the film.
“Titanic began a period of rebellion for me. As soon as people give you enough compliments and you suddenly have more power than you”ve ever had in your entire life, it’’s not that you become an arrogant p***k, or you become rude to people, but you get a false sense of your own importance, the Daily Express quoted Leonardo, as saying.
The actor said that he was too young to actually understand the depth of the condition and digest, as to what was going on with him.
You”re treading in dangerous territory when you begin thinking you”ve altered the course of history. It was like a runaway train. I didn”t understand what was happening to me, Leonardo said. (ANI)
