Actor Leonardo DiCaprio wished he had put on extra weight for his role in J. Edgar as he felt "claustrophobic" after wearing the heavy suit for his role.

The 37-year-old spent four hours in prosthetic and make-up each day to have his slim body and appearance transformed to play FBI founder J. Edgar Hoover.

"It was very claustrophobic and I wanted to put on extra weight so I didn't have to wear a big suit. I tried my best but there weren't enough cupcakes around to do it," femalefirst.co.uk quoted DiCaprio as saying.
