All the attention Leo DiCaprio garnered from the movie that shot him into superstardom was more of a curse than a blessing, as he tells it. According to Contact Music:
“I was walking through the airport in Paris and I remember looking down to see a girl holding on to my leg. “I said, ‘Whatever illusions of grandeur you have about me they’re not true. I will sit here and talk to you. I will look you in the eye and speak and it’s fine. You don’t need to dig your nails into my leg. It doesn’t need to be this.’ “It was that whole Titanic phenomenon, something that was so foreign to me.”
Oh please. You got to date a Victoria’s Secret model because of it, for Christ’s sake. Stop complaining already.
