The Great Gatsby (Leonardo Di Caprio) In Esquire, May 2013

  • Pin it

Naturally, after talking about Daisy Buchanan who’s totally taking over Carey Mulligan in her Vogue pictorial, bringing the Great Gatsby in the scene doesn’t look odd or out of place. So here he is: in all his theatrical splendor, Leonardo di Caprio as Gatsby in Baz Luhrmann’s new twist on the old classic. In 3D.

When did Leo grew up anyway? The good people from Esquire (aka Tom Junod, who wrote the piece about him for the May 2013 issue of the magazine) would put it all on a crack. On a neck crack. A loud and insignificant crack that would give you at least a good hundred characters from a mandatory length of a magazine cover story.

Truth being told, I would have a hard time finding something interesting to say about Leonardo di Caprio. Something that hasn’t been said before, something new and relevant for his Gatsby role and for the Esquire customers. So, creating an epic description of a neck crack sounds just about right, doesn’t it? The less significant things about di Caprio could just as well be the most relevant in this context. Especially since this is just the first issue from a series of 3 about world’s most famous men. Leo photographed by Max Vadukul breaks the famous ice.

I am looking forward to Leo’s turn in Baz Luhrnmann’s film “The Great Gatsby”!
I loved his Romeo + Juliet so this will be a visual and aural treat!
My brother gets Esquire magazine so I will read this article after he is finished with the issue. : )

Well, we Dutch love to chat and so did our best actress and singer Carice van Houten. Friends with Anthony Hegarty, who contributed to her album and also friends with Rufus Wainwright who invited her as his support act. That says a lot right?

And Leonardo? This piece is about Leo, he loved to kiss her and she didn’t mind at all. He’s a great kisser as Carice shameless declared. It had be done over and over again and Leo gave it all his passion. Bam!!
Hahaha…….Beautiful Carice played a small part in Body of Proof but her bit ended up on the cutting floor. (Melissandre in Game of Thrones doesn’t really show what Carice is capable of….)
Further, Leo loves to rehearse his parts in the mirror! Carice thought that was odd. So do I :)

Looking forward to see The Great Gatsby. Whatever there’s to say about Leo, a great actor he is!

I am sure everything in this movie is great. Except that Ms Karter ( the one we must bow down, dont you forget!) ruined the theme from Amy Winehouse.
