How hard it is to be a star! Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio and many of his colleagues can often be mistaken for homeless people - unkempt beards, shapeless clothes and a completely worn-out look often cause bewilderment among fans and bystanders who can hardly guess a celebrity in the person opposite.
Recall that in the last film "The Survivor" the actor plays the hunter Hugh Glass, and the action takes place in the 19th century. For the role, Leonardo grew a lush beard, and since his lyrical hero should not rule the vegetation on his head, a shapeless something in the form of an unkempt beard accompanied him during all the filming and even part of the film's promotion.
DiCaprio's colleagues on the set Tom Hardy and Donal Glisson have grown the same beards. Sometimes the trinity was mistaken for local homeless alcoholics.
“When we went out into the city after filming, we met many homeless people who met us as their friends and talked to us, offered us beer. But the strangest thing is that more often than not we were not recognized by the people with whom we worked every day on the set”- said Leonardo on the talk show Ellen DeGeneres.
Despite the seemingly relief in self-care, DiCaprio claims that the beard did not relieve him of the routine five-hour daily routine of preparing to go to the set. Makeup artists and stylists worked on it every day, inflicting all the same scars and "traces of a meeting with a bear." But Leo admits that he only got pleasure from it, and Iñaritu considers cooperation with Alejandro Gonzales a colossal experience.
Leo was never as happy to shave as he was after the shoot, when he was finally allowed to get rid of the vegetation.
“I don’t think I’ll ever have a beard again unless it’s necessary for the shoot. It is difficult to maintain, food gets into it, it needs special care - for example, shampoo to soften it. Otherwise, you get a hard brush on your face,”Leo shared his experience.
