Hi TSI! I remember I saw What's Eating Gilbert Grape and soon after that This Boy's Life I was flabbergasted! In these films he plays with Johnny Depp and Robert de Niro; to me he totally owns both films. I became an instant fan. He is at his best in parts with depth. What an actor. It was a bit of pity soon after these great parts he did some "pretty boy parts". I got to see those with my daughter back than! I hated The Man With The Iron Mask but she had a teen crush on Leo after Titanic! Although I liked the film. Was great on Sunday afternoon with all sniffing elderly couples and teen girls in the audience.
Can not wait for J. Edgar directed by Clint Eastwood. Wow, does that man lives forever?
He has definitely been in one or two films I didn't like, but the guy .. Even if the movie sucks you can't dislike him. I think I first saw This Boys Life one night late on tv when I was ten and I bought the dvd a couple of years ago, I agree with you it is a great film and he really shone in it.
I hadn't heard of J. Edgar, I'll have to remember to see it! I do hope Clint lives forever, it looks like he might at this rate
