Allegedly, Leonardo DiCaprio was named after Leonardo Da Vinci after his pregnant mother was standing in front of one of his paintings in the Uffizi in Florence, when she felt him kick.
Now though, it has been rumored that DiCaprio will be playing Da Vinci in a new biopic.
The actor has not starred in anything since 2016, after winning an Oscar, but it’ll be interesting to see how he adapts into this particular role.
Nothing much has been revealed about this – will the film be his life from birth to death or will they focus on the peak of his career. It’ll also be interesting to see how the producers will portray his sexuality and what/how DiCaprio will help paint this as honest and believable as possible.
