While Django Unchained was released in the U.S. in December before the Oscars, the film is just hitting some foreign markets, including Japan and South Korea. Leonardo DiCaprio traveled to the countries to promote the film in person. While he spoke about the violence in the Quentin Tarantino Western, his impersonation of his Departed co-star Jack Nicholson is getting some Internet attention.
According to USA Today, DiCaprio spent the first half of the week in Japan. There, he told an interviewer how blood was “everywhere” when he cut his hand for a scene. “It's a pretty cool story to tell my kids someday,” he added.
He was also asked about what type of woman he finds attractive. “Ones with really great personalities...They have to be very clever and have a great sense of humor. Sense of humor the most,” he said.
During an interview on a talk show, DiCaprio was asked if he could do any impressions. Immediately, he thought of Nicholson.
On Thursday, he arrived in South Korea, where the topic of film violence came up, notes The Associated Press. “My philosophy has kind of always been the same: Pain is temporary, film is forever,” he told the media.
“You do everything you possibly can, you give it your all, all of your focus, and hopefully you come out with, if all the elements mixed together correctly, you come out with a great piece of art,” he explained. “To me, cinema is the great modern art form.”
Django won Oscars for Best Supporting Actor (Christoph Waltz) and Original Screenplay. It just opened in Japan and will open in South Korea later this month.
DiCaprio will next be seen on the big screen in the U.S. in The Great Gatsby in May.
