Leonardo DiCaprio has bailed from starring in an upcoming Mel Gibson movie, according to online reports.
No prizes for guessing why he’s shunned the scandal-hit director.
According to a report from RadarOnline.com, DiCaprio has given Gibson the middle finger and decided not to star in his viking-themed project.
A friend of DiCaprio claimed there was “not a chance” he would sign on for what would have been his first job with Gibson.
The insider added: “Leo has earned the right to pick and choose who he works with and Mel Gibson is not one of them.”
According to Radar’s report, DiCaorio wanted to protect his reputation, which has been given a much-needed leg-up following critically-acclaimed roles in Inception and Shutter Island.
Gibson, you’re manthrax, buddy!
