Leonardo Dicaprio Biggest Regret: Boogie Nights

Today, ShowBizSpy reported what it says in our headline: Leonardo's biggest regret in his career to date was walking away from Boogie Nights. In their words:

Leonardo DiCaprio admits his “biggest regret” is turning down the chance to star in Boogie Nights.
The Titanic star — who is currently riding high at the box office with summer blockbuster Inception — says he still can’t forget the one dream role that got away.
“My biggest regret is Boogie Nights,” says Leo, who lost the role of porn star Dirk Diggler to close pal Mark Wahlberg. “I’m a huge fan of (director) Paul Thomas Anderson but the first time I met him for that role I hadn’t really seen much of his previous work. Now I love that movie."
You have now read this fact 4 different times in an update containing 5 or 6 sentences total.

  1. I happened to listen to the commentary track for Boogie Nights today and PTA said that Leo passed it up for Titanic which pretty much made Leo a huge star. Still, I understand his regret.

  2. I loved Whalberg's performance, but I can't help but wonder what it would have been like if Dicaprio played Diggler. Considering how young and boyish he looked back then(more so than Mark), he would've given the character an extra layer of innocence.

  3. Basically he's saying he would've taken Boogie Nights over Titanic if he had known better. That's a bold thing to say considering how Titanic gave him the opportunity to star in anything he wanted. But it's also telling of his dedication to quality films over popular ones.

  4. Titanic is still a great movie.

  5. Both are great films (I'd say masterpieces/classics) in different circuits. I can understand Leo's problem. It must have been a nightmare facing all those voracious female fans & media.
