Well, this movie needs no introduction as it is one of the finest movie ever made and there is nobody who has not seen this masterpiece. The fans just don’t get bored with the stories even though it was released a long time ago.
So this is for the die hard fans of the movie and the best part is that it has come from somebody who was a part of this beautiful movie. I bet you guys remember the little girl who played Jack’s best girl in the movie. Though, she has grown up now, she is full of life when she talks about her experience.
Here’s what she had to say:
“There was so much of Jack in Leo, definitely. He was very sweet; he was very goofy, absolutely adorable. He always had a smile on his face, it was great.
I don’t know if I can do the jig anymore! I think if I watched and really just dedicated time to relearning it, maybe I could do it.
But you also can’t do it by yourself. When you’re getting, like, twirled around by Leonardo DiCaprio, you just go with the moment.”
This is what she said about her first scene:
“My very first scene was one where I’m sitting with Leonardo DiCaprio, and we were drawing in his sketchbook.
And he sees Rose and then [the actor playing] my dad comes up and says, ‘All right, say good-bye to Uncle Jack’, so he could go off with her.”
Unfortunately, the scene was removed and in case if you still want to watch you can find it in the DVD extras.
When asked if she knew that Leo was a world-famous heartthrob, Alex simply replied, laughing:
” I didn’t ever really notice that; I wasn’t really paying attention, because I was thinking, ‘This is my new best friend Leo, and he’s so cool’.
It was funny because, that year – especially after filming – that’s when he was all over the J-14 magazines. People at school would bring the magazines in and I would be like, ‘Oh, I know him’… You know, like a total little snob. They’d all say, ‘We know you know him! Shut up!”
Her mother has preserved her initial experience and it looks cute:
The girl had some kind words for Rose too:
” In between scenes, we would hang out, and Kate would come up and talk to us too — she was obsessed with my sister’s hair, so she was always playing with it… And Leo would try to chase my sister around and tickle her.”
She says that the touch has been lost with Leo and she wished she did. Well, it is better late than never. Let’s hope they get back in touch together as soon as possible.
