How Leo froze on the set

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - IANS

Ac­tor Leonardo DiCaprio’s (right) eyes froze shut while work­ing on the set of his lat­est movie The Revenant.

The 41-year-old ac­tor was work­ing on the Ale­jan­dro G. Iñár­ritu di­rec­to­rial when the crew got caught in hor­rific weather con­di­tions which lasted for an hour in tem­per­a­tures that dropped to mi­nus 40, re­ports fe­male­first.co.uk.

He said, “We were do­ing an emo­tional scene, and then this wind­storm came, and it was just bru­tal. We were out there for an hour, and I said, ‘Ale­jan­dro, what the hell are we do­ing?’”

De­spite the weather con­di­tions, Iñár­ritu en­cour­aged the cast of the thriller to forget about the cold cli­mate. He said: “It’s a men­tal state. Weather doesn’t ex­ist.”

DiCaprio ad­mit­ted he was ex­tremely grate­ful for a hot air blower on the set. Speak­ing at a ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion, he added, “We ac­tu­ally had a ma­chine on set, I nick­named it The Oc­to­pus be­cause it was like a gi­ant hot air blower with eight ten­ta­cles, and we’d all rush up to it and thaw our hands.”
