Leonardo DiCaprio says best friend Kate Winslet was “freaked out” over their love scenes in The Revolutionary Road, directed by estranged husband Sam Mendes.
Winslet, who starred with DiCaprio in cult romance Titanic in 1997, found it difficult that Mendes was not troubled at all while directing some of the most intimate scenes in the movie, about an American couple whose marriage is on the verge of collapse.
The couple recently announced their split and DiCaprio admits that Mendes wasn’t bothered by Winslet’s intimate moments on set with him. In fact, he was so relaxed about the issue that Winslet “freaked out”, Daily Mail reported.
The 35-year-old star worked with Winslet, 34, and her director husband on The Revolutionary Road in 2008.
When asked if the filming had marked the beginning of the end of their marriage, DiCaprio said, “It was certainly a difficult time. She was really worried that Sam wasn’t bothered by the fact that his wife was making out with another guy right in front of him.”
“I told her it was only acting, but she kept on saying that it was really weird,” DiCaprio said.
