Did You Know Leonardo DiCaprio Once Expressed His Desire To Play Vladimir Putin

One of Hollywood’s most renowned actors is American Leonardo DiCaprio. He is renowned for his work on movies like Titanic, Revenant, The Wolf of Wall Street, Inception, The Departed, and many others. Despite being a fantastic actor, he previously stated that he would love playing Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The Oscar-winning actor was born in Los Angeles, for the unversed. Although Yelena Smirnova, his maternal grandmother, was an Odessa, Ukraine native, he also had German and Italian ancestry. The actor was promoting The Revenant back in 2016.

The idea of Leonardo DiCaprio playing Russian President Vladimir Putin at this time was floated. According to The Guardian, the actor told Germany’s Welt am Sonntag newspaper that he would “love to play” the controversial leader and called him “very, very, very interesting.”

The Titanic star said, “I think there should be more films about Russian history because it has many stories worthy of Shakespeare. That is fascinating for an actor. Lenin also would be an interesting role. I would like also to star as Rasputin.”

At a conference in St. Petersburg in 2010 on the critically endangered Siberian tiger, Leonardo DiCaprio and Vladimir Putin crossed paths. The Russian leader, who was prime minister at the time, referred to the actor during this time as a “muzhik,” meaning “real man,” for completing his journey to St. Petersburg despite facing numerous challenges.

Strong winds resulted in Leo’s second flight taking a diversion to Helsinki while his first flight had to make an emergency landing in New York owing to weather conditions. Vladimir Putin cited this in his statement, saying, “I would like to thank you for coming despite all the obstacles. A person with less.

stable nerves could have decided against coming, could have read it as a sign – that it was not worth going.”
