Jeff Frank/Zuma; Warner Bros.

"I hope I don’t look anything like that! … They were very meticulous in trying to create a very overweight version of myself but with [J. Edgar] Hoover’s attributes. So I think it was a combination of both things."

J. Edgar star Leonardo DiCaprio, who looked dashing at the Audi AFI Fest premiere, reacts to seeing himself transformed after five or six hours of makeup every day to play the infamous FBI director in Clint Eastwood’s new biopic.
