Leonardo DiCaprio has become the most iconic actor of this generation thanks to his endless string of critically acclaimed performances starting right from when he began acting in the early ’90s. After years of impressive roles in award-winning films, Leo finally won his first Oscar at the 2016 Academy Awards for his portrayal of Hugh Glass in The Revenant. Although he has had many iconic roles in his career, he could have had a few more if he hadn’t turned down some big parts that were offered to him first. Check out 9 major roles Leonardo DiCaprio turned down:
9. Boogie Nights
Leo DiCaprio was first offered the role of porn star Dirk Diggler in the 1997 film Boogie Nights, but around the same time, he was offered the part of Jack Dawson in Titanic and chose that instead. Obviously, as it remains his most iconic role, it was the right choice, and the role of Dirk Diggler instead went to Mark Wahlberg which helped kickstart his acting career.
