Leonardo DiCaprio says starring in 'Revolutionary Road' alongside Kate Winslet was like being in a "weird, twisted family"
Leonardo DiCaprio says starring in 'Revolutionary Road' was like being in a "weird, twisted family".
The 34-year-old actor - who reunites with Kate Winslet in the new drama - insists filming love scenes with Kate felt "completely natural and comfortable", even though the actress' husband Sam Mendes directed the film.
Speaking at the European premiere of the movie in London's Leicester Square, Leonardo told BANG Showbiz: "I was entirely used to kissing Kate after making 'Titanic' with her 10 years ago. It was completely natural and comfortable. It felt like kind of a family - a weird, twisted family."
Leonardo added Kate - who won a Golden Globe Award for her role in the film - is no different from when they first worked together.
He explained: "She has not changed at all. She's one of the most real people I've ever met and such a great friend. We've been support mechanisms for each other for a long period of time and will continue to be."
Leonardo added both he and Kate are more "experienced" since they first appeared on the big screen together, which he believes helped them give such strong performances in 'Revolutionary Road'.
He said: "Both of us, I think, have got more experience in this industry and taken more command of the specific projects and characters we play. We're no longer young 20 year olds looking up to directors and producers as parental figures. We're now adults who are taking command of our careers in a different way."
'Revolutionary Road' is released in the UK on January 30.
