Did you know that Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio were best friends growing up? So when they both signed on for The Great Gatsby, it’s safe to say that they knew that they would share a laugh or two while at work. But one day, their laughter got so intense that it got them into trouble. Maguire shared the story with David Letterman on Wednesday night.
Basically, DiCaprio had to act serious during one scene that also featured Maguire, and Maguire couldn’t take it. He cracked up laughing, leading DiCaprio to do the same and break character. This continued for half a day, to the point where the two best friends had to be separated to shoot the scene. I bet director Baz Luhrmann was quite thrilled with the boys on that day.
