Dicaprio Intimidated By Boston Accent

Subscribe Leonardo Dicaprio

LEONARDO DiCAPRIO was terrified he would fail to master the Boston, Massachusetts accent while making THE DEPARTED, and anger Bostonian castmates MATT DAMON and MARK WAHLBERG. The trio were filming with MARTIN SCORSESE and DiCaprio was warned that he had to make sure his accent was flawless. He says, "Damon and Wahlberg were really stern with me from the beginning to make me understand that the Boston accent had been butchered in cinema in the past and that I would be the laughing stock of their hometown if I didn't get this accent down. So I had to become an authentic Bostonian. "The pressure was on and I hung out with a kid from the Boston projects. And on set Matt was always there, putting in his two cents' worth!"
