Inarritu on Directing The Revenant | Four More Directors on the Decline of "Middle-Class Films," Facing Retirement | The Hollywood Reporter
INARRITU With Leo [DiCaprio], I said: "I would love to see you fragile, vulnerable, to see the man that can be broken." And he was very excited about it. And he transformed himself physically. He went on a diet, he let his hair grow to here, a beard that was almost like Santa Claus. What I like is, he is not only an actor, but his comments come from a filmmaker's point of view. He understands the film. And Leo has this internal rhythm that is just like a machine, like something that is blending things. And I was very impressed by that.
