Isla Fisher calls Leonardo DiCaprio `one of greatest actors of our gen`
Los Angeles: Actress Isla Fisher, who shares screen space with Leonardo DiCaprio for a single scene in Baz Luhrmann`s ‘The Great Gatsby’, refers to him as "one of the greatest actors of our generation".
The 37-year-old plays the role of Myrtle Wilson in ‘The Great Gatsby’, which is based on Scott Fitzgerald`s iconic novel, reported Access Hollywood.
"Leo is the most perfect Jay Gatsby. He brings to it a childlike innocence. His obsession with Daisy doesn`t feel mentally ill. It`s just sort of passionate and misguided, but still romantic. Leo`s fabulous in everything. He`s one of the greatest actors of our generation," Fisher said.
"But he has gone further than you could ever have imagined with this character, and really made [Gatsby] so multi-dimensional, and so flawed and so vulnerable, and yet so macho and sexy, everything that you want in Gatsby," she said.
Fisher was excited by the movie`s elaborate costumes created by designer Catherine Martin.
"I felt like there was a whole building devoted to Catherine Martin and the costumes. You could just go from room to room looking at beautiful sketches and seeing silks and lace and feathers," she added.
