Scorsese Made Dicaprio Into A Man

Director MARTIN SCORSESE insists his protege LEONARDO DiCAPRIO has finally matured as an actor, because he was still a "boy" when they teamed up for 2002 movie GANGS OF NEW YORK. Under the TAXI DRIVER director's tutelage, 31-year-old DiCaprio has made the transition from teenage actor to grown-up star with leading roles in the Scorsese pictures THE AVIATOR and THE DEPARTED. Scorsese says, "There's no doubt he was a boy when we did Gangs Of New York, which is what I wanted. But when he did HOWARD HUGHES in The Aviator, that changed everything."
