“We had a few #antman fans at the experience today and thank you to Paul for being so gracious to his enthusiastic young fans (and the not so young fans!) #peoplessexiestman"

Back in 2019, the 52-year-old revealed that a young Leonardo DiCaprio had expressed uncertainty about taking on the role of the male lead Jack in the Titanic film.

In an interview on the Graham Norton Show, he recalled an “interesting conversation” that he had with his friend and Romeo + Juliet co-star at the time.

“I was riding to the place with Leo and he said, ‘I just got offered this movie, and it’s a big movie.’ And he had done indie films up to that point.

He said, ‘It’s a studio movie, it’s Titanic.’” Rudd said.

“I said, ‘That’s incredible!’ And I knew a lot about Titanic because my dad just talked about it at the table. And we had a conversation about it and [DiCaprio] was saying, ‘Oh, like I don’t know what I’ll do.’”

“I remember saying, ‘You should do it! I don’t think I had any say, but it is kind of interesting to think back on that. 'Cause he did it. He did the movie.”
