Two things we know Leonardo DiCaprio loves: fancy old-timey clothes, and the ladies. Now he gets to bring these passions together in his next planned role, as FBI founding director and—rumored cross-dresser—J. Edgar Hoover.
Leo spilled about wearing women's clothing over the weekend, at a press conference for his new thriller Inception:
"I'm talking to Clint Eastwood about playing J. Edgar Hoover," said DiCaprio, emphasizing the "secret life" of the notorious crime-fighter, "who had his hand in some of the most sort of scandalous events in American history—everything from the Vietnam war and Dillinger to Martin Luther King and JFK."
Hoover's private and public lives were equally sensationalistic, but DiCaprio said he hasn't started putting together ensembles in order to explore Hoover's alleged interest in cross dressing.
"Will I wear a dress?" Leo said. "Not as of yet. We haven't done the fittings for those."
Meanwhile, although DiCaprio never dons ladieswear in Inception, Christopher Nolan's mind-bending new thriller, the actor did say he was put into some physically uncomfortable situations while shooting the film.
"[A] sequence in Morocco was pretty tough because I had to run through a crowd of people," DiCaprio explained. "I felt kind of like a pinball because I was bouncing from Moroccan to Moroccan and falling into various vending machines."
Wait a minute, here. Wasn't Morocco where they filmed Sex and the City 2?! Coincidence...or totally not?
