Leonardo DiCaprio hated getting wet during `Titanic`
Los Angeles: `Titanic` star Leonardo DiCaprio constantly cribbed about getting wet during the shooting of the 1997 grosser, reveals director James Cameron.
Cameron said he tolerated DiCaprio`s whining every day, but at the end he came to know that the actor was actually a qualified diver, reports thesun.co.uk.
Launching the 3D Blu-Ray DVD of `Titanic`, Cameron said: "Leo was like a Siamese cat trying to get into the water. He made a huge production of it every time."
"The water could be 80 degrees but he hated to get wet - or he pretended he hated to get wet. It turned out on the last day of shooting, we had to do an underwater scene and he said, `I`m a certified scuba diver`."
"What was all this stuff with the cat and getting into the water? I wanted to wring his neck," the director said.
`Titanic` also starred Kate Winslet.
