Leonardo DiCaprio Feuding with Clint Eastwood On “J. Edgar” Set?

Truth rating: 0

“You coulda heard a pin drop when Leonardo DiCaprio suddenly got feisty with Oscar-winning director Clint Eastwood on the set of J. Edgar,” begins a piece in the National Enquirer.

According to the tab’s “on-set spy,” DiCaprio supposedly “demanded a retake on a scene” because he felt he hadn’t “shocked enough,” but Eastwood refused.

DiCaprio allegedly wouldn’t take no for an answer, and “got upset and demanded that Clint reshoot the scene.”

Apparently, the director then “turned to the cameraman, and said, in a quiet Dirty Harry rasp: ‘He can shoot it again – but make sure there’s no film in the camera,'” causing DiCaprio to really lose his temper and scream, “FORGET IT!”

“Shooting resumed the next day,” the mag continues, “but sources say the air’s thick with tension.”

No, it’s not.

A production source tells Gossip Cop that the Enquirer‘s story is “total crap.”

Not “shocked.”
