The Andie Summers Show

In an interview with GQ, Christian Bale reveals that Leonardo Dicaprio is the first actor to get offers on movie roles.

The Batman says, “It doesn’t matter what anyone tells you. It doesn’t matter how friendly you are with the directors. All those people that I’ve worked with multiple times, they all offered every one of those roles to him first. I had one of those people actually tell me that. So, thank you, Leo, because literally, he gets to choose everything he does. And good for him, he’s phenomenal.”

Bale continues to praise Dicaprio by saying, “Do you know how grateful I am to get any damn thing? I mean, I can’t do what he does,” he said. “I wouldn’t want the exposure that he has either. And he does it magnificently. But I would suspect that almost everybody of similar age to him in Hollywood owes their careers to him passing on whatever project it is.”
