    Leonardo DiCaprio Lookalike Makes Acting Debut

    After it emerged that Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio had a doppelganger, he’s now made his very own acting debut in a bizarre advert for Russian television. The ad that last just under a minute, is a strange but sort of wonderful tribute to the Hollywood actor, as we see lookalike Roman Burtsev, a 33-year-old security guard, assume a role that, without making direct reference to the ‘The Revenant’ star, gives us the clear indication that we’re seeing a version Leo.

During an interview with Rolling Stone, via Cosmopolitan, the Oscar-winning actress admitted that she felt an instant rapport to James Cameron’s script. At this point, Kate Winslet set out on her pursuit, acquiring James Cameron’s phone number from her agent, after presumably rummaging through his rubbish outside of his house first.

    It’s an often-mulled alternate ending to ‘Titanic’ - Rose helps freezing Jack up onto her bit of wood adrift in the icy North Atlantic, and they paddle off to happiness. Kate Winslet appears to be from this school of thought too. Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, she discussed the fame that the James Cameron movie has afforded her, as well as the climactic and heartbreaking final scene with her doomed co-star Leonardo DiCaprio.

    Why Didn't Jack Climb Onto That Plank At The End Of Titanic?

    Hosts Adam and Jamie – with help from Cameron himself – determined that a little lateral thinking (easy to come by when you’re not freezing to death, of course), might well have saved them both (see below). Simply strapping Rose’s life-preserver to the bottom of the plank would have affording it significantly more buoyancy, and thus allowed Jack to climb aboard for the 63 minutes it would have taken to be saved by dashing Ioan Gruffudd in his lifeboat.

    10 Films That Paid Its Actors A LOT More Than Its Actresses

    The issue of gender pay inequality in movies has been all over the news this week thanks to Jennifer Lawrence’s essay on the subject, which saw her say she’s “over trying to find the ‘adorable’ way” to speak out about the issue. She referenced ‘American Hustle’ as a film where, despite being a huge star in her own right, she got paid less than her male colleagues. As you’d expect, this kind of thing is sadly extremely common in Hollywood, as this salary information proves (all figures are approximate and taken from IMDB.com). ‘American Hustle’ Bradley Cooper: 9% of the gross Christian Bale: 9% Jeremy Renner: 9% Jennifer Lawrence: 7% Amy Adams: 7% Figures unearthed by the Sony hack revealed that Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence had deals entitling them to 7 per cent of the film’s gross, rather than the 9 per cent received by their male co-stars.
