Spider-Man actor Tobey Maguire is grateful to Leonardo DiCaprio for teaching him how to act. Maguire was 17 when he first met 18-year-old DiCaprio on the set of This Boy's Life and was in awe of his acting abilities.
Contactmusic.com quoted him as saying: "I remember going to the set of This Boy's Life and I went over to go goof around with him before a take and he was sitting there, thinking about stuff."
"Then we went into the scene and I remember just being floored at how talented he was. He just clicked into a different gear on that movie from what he was doing before."
