When Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro first crossed paths over three decades ago, it left quite an impression on De Niro. At the time, De Niro was already an accomplished actor with two Oscars under his belt. They worked together on the 1993 film This Boy’s Life, where DiCaprio, then known for his role on Growing Pains, auditioned for a role and eventually landed the part of Tobias. The movie tells the story of a young boy and his mother who find stability with a man played by De Niro, but things take a dark turn as his true nature is revealed.

Years later, they reunited for the 1996 film Marvin’s Room and now, they are working together on their latest project, Killers of the Flower Moon. In this film, De Niro plays a villainous character named William Hale, who orchestrates the murders of Indigenous people for their land. DiCaprio portrays Hale’s simple-minded nephew, who falls in love with an Osage woman. De Niro describes his character as one of the most insidious he has played, as he doesn’t see his actions as evil.

It’s clear that their collaborations have left a lasting impact on both actors, and their upcoming film promises to be another powerful and compelling story.
