Leonardo Dicaprio’s co-star in Django Unchained, Nichole Galicia has recently spoken about working with Leonardo Dicaprio on such a big film. "It was everything you would imagine it to be," she told E!. "It was perfect."
She also talked about how great Dicaprio was, saying, "He was more than nice. He was generous, he was humble and he was funny."
Galicia does mention that she never had to audition with him, and instead auditioned with Quentin Tarantino as well as the casting director.
"I read with Quentin and the casting director," she said. "Quentin basically looked at me and said, 'Do everything.' So I did. I had to sit on someone's lap. Say a bunch of lines and kiss someone. I got up and I laid a kiss on the casting director. I don't know if she was expecting it."
So far, Django Unchained has not premiered anywhere but is getting strong buzz ahead of its theatrical release in December. Industry insiders are saying the movie is classic Tarantino, which would mean great reviews and an even bigger box office. Tarantino’s most previous film, Inglourious Basterds, managed to get above $120 million at the box office, which is considered rare for an R rated alternate history film.
