A unique preview of the actor’s interview with “Good Morning America” will run on Tuesday, according to PEOPLE.
For the upcoming year, Leonardo DiCaprio has a lot planned.
The actor, who turned 49 on November 11, talked candidly about working with costar Lily Gladstone on his most recent movie, Killers and Flower Moon, in a conversation with ABC News’ Chris Connelly that aired on Tuesday’s Good Morning America. However, when Connelly questioned the Oscar victor about his aspirations before to reaching his significant birthday, he had another movie in mind.
In the unique interview, which PEOPLE has access to, Connelly, 66, asked DiCaprio what he wanted to achieve before turning 50 the next year.
“What do you know? Just one more film,” DiCaprio remarked, implying that he would like to return to the spotlight for a different project.
Connelly and DiCaprio thought about how rapidly the years have passed before the question was posed. You have 49 years of age. Connelly, who had conducted numerous interviews with DiCaprio over his 13-year tenure as an MTV News movie critic, teased, “How hell did that take place?”
Speaking back, DiCaprio remarked, “I had no idea,” adding, “We spoke about our first conversation, which could have taken place 30 years ago.”
Martin Scorsese is the director of DiCaprio’s most recent picture, Lovers of the Flower Moon.
Based on the nonfiction book of exactly the same name by David Grann, the movie depicts the true account of the reign of Terror, which consisted of a string of heinous killings of Osage Nation members, who at the time were the richest people in the world per capita.
In the film, Leonardo plays Earnest Burkhart, a white man who travels to Oklahoma and weds Mollie (played by Gladsone), a wealthy Osage woman. Later on, he is involved in a plot to kill her family members in order to gain her oil rights, which was orchestrated by his wealthy uncle William K. Hale (Robert De Niro), a cattle rancher.
Tom Gliatto of PEOPLE has lauded the gloomy film, calling it the most diabolical Western ever made and perhaps the most bleakly pessimistic portrayal of American society since There Will Be Blood. Critics and viewers have loved it equally.
Off-screen, DiCaprio’s life seems to be more happier, in contrast. On November 11, he threw a star-studded event in Beverly Hills to honor his most recent birthday, inviting Italian model Vittoria Ceretti and a number of other famous pals.
DiCaprio and Ceretti, 25, were reportedly “affectionate and kissing throughout the night,” a source told PEOPLE. Since August, the two have been romantically associated.
Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Tobey Maguire, Taika Waititi, Axl Rose, JAY-Z, and Beyoncé were among the other guests that attended DiCaprio’s birthday celebration. At one point during the late-night celebration, which continued into the early hours of the morning, the insider revealed that DiCaprio was “raised and carried around the room.”
Now showing in theaters is Killers of the Flower Moon. ABC broadcasts Good Morning America weekdays starting at 7 a.m. ET.
