Mark Wahlberg reveals that Leo DiCaprio was furious about the possibility of him appearing in The Basketball Diaries.
“Leonardo was like, ‘Over my dead f—ing body. Marky Mark’s not going to be in this f—ing movie,’” Wahlberg tells THR. “Because we’d had a thing — I didn’t even realize it, [but] I was a bit of a d*ck to him at a charity basketball game. So he was like, ‘This f—ing a**hole is not going to be in this movie.’”
“So I come in and I do the audition and I kind of look at him and he kind of looks at me, and then we do a scene, and they’re like, ‘Hmm, this f—ing dude’s pretty good, right?’”
“The next thing you know, boom, we’re hanging out,” he says.
