Leonardo Dicaprio - Leonardo Dicaprio Discusses Gay Ambiguities In New Film


Leonardo Dicaprio has explained that there are various implicatures about his character's sexuality in his new movie 'J.Edgar'. Playing the late Fbi boss J. Edgar Hoover, Leonardo Dicaprio has discussed theories that Hoover's right-hand man Vlyde Tolson may have actually been his lover.
When asked about whether he thought Hoover was gay by E!Online at the premiere of the movie, which also served as opening night of the AFI Film Festival, DiCaprio stated: "To tell you the truth, I don't have the answer to that question and I don't think there's anyone still alive who really does. If you talk to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, there are staunch believers that these two men carried out a very professional relationship and they were sort of inseparable pals." DiCaprio further elaborated: "These two men went on every vacation together. They ate breakfast, lunch and dinner together. They went to work together. They were together for 50 years. They lived together. They were buried together. They never had a family. They never had a girlfriend. You know, put it together in your mind and..." The film is currently the centre of a lot of attention, being tipped for major Oscar success this year.
Leonardo Dicaprio is also set to appear in a new adaption of the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, 'The Great Gatsby', next year. Directed by Baz Luhrman, he will be playing the lead role of Jay Gatsby.
