Alec Baldwin admires Leonardo DiCaprio. The Emmy winner has made no secret of his sometimes displeasure with the course of his own acting career, and he wishes his fortunes were as successful as the Titanic star’s.
Baldwin, who appeared alongside DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator, was left in awe of DiCaprio on the set – because the younger actor had “everything.”
“I just feel like the kind of work I would love to have done would have been more like when Leo did The Aviator. I love Leo. I adore him and envy him. I remember being there with him and thinking that he has youth, he has talent, he has opportunity, he has everything in the business. I thought, ‘What a great gift – to have that convergence of all your abilities and the opportunity to work with Marty Scorsese, and the scripts and the budgets and everything.’”
