'Suicide Squad' star Margot Robbie has revealed when she needs inspiration to cry during an emotional movie scene she conjures up the image of Leonardo DiCaprio dying onscreen in 1997 film 'Titanic'
Leonardo DiCaprio helps Margot Robbie to cry during emotional filming scenes.
Margot - who starred opposite Leonardo in 'The Wolf of Wall Street' - always thinks of the actor dying in the sea as his character Jack Dawson in 1997 blockbuster 'Titanic' when she needs to convincingly weep for a role.
She revealed: "If I ever need to cry in a scene, I think of Leonardo DiCaprio as Jack dying in 'Titanic'. I would never tell Leo that. I'll kill myself if he ever reads this."
The 'Suicide Squad' star was being interviewed for W magazine's Best Performances of 2015/2016 issue, and another admirer who quoted the 41-year-old heartthrob as an inspiration is 'Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' star Rooney Mara.
The 30-year-old star gushed that she was in "love" with Leonardo at the age of 11 and would pretend they were married.
She said: "I didn't have posters of him, but I definitely had some cut-out pictures. I would write my first name with DiCaprio as my new last name to see how it would look."
Leonardo has been tipped as a potential Best Actor winner at the Academy Awards next month for his performance as American frontiersman Hugh Glass in 'The Revenant' - which is based on the true story of the events that unfolded during General Ashley's expedition of 1823.
Despite being nominated for five Oscars, the 41-year-old Hollywood star has always left the ceremony empty-handed so far.
