Watch: 31-Minute Talk With Golden Globe Winners Leonardo DiCaprio And Alejandro G. Iñárritu On ‘Charlie Rose’

Watch: 31-Minute Talk With Golden Globe Winners Leonardo DiCaprio And Alejandro G. Iñárritu On 'Charlie Rose'

Leonardo DiCaprio was one of the most talked about celebs at last night’s Golden Globes Awards, but for two entirely different reasons. Of course, there was his Best Actor win for “The Revenant,” but then there was immediately trending, side-eye reaction when Lady Gaga bumped into him on her way to the stage to accept her Best Actress trophy for “American Horror Story.” However, the actor explains it was totally innocent.

“Oh lord — that’s trending, huh?” he told ET.“I just didn’t know what was passing me — that’s all!”

With that out of the away, prior to the awards, the actor sat down for a lengthy chat with “Charlie Rose,” alongside fellow Golden Globes winner, “The Revenant” director Alejandro G. Iñárritu. The half-hour conversation focused heavily on the complicated shoot, and should be of great interest for fans of the movie.

Meanwhile, in a chat with Variety, DiCaprio explains why he’s unlikely to ever transition to directing. “I’ve been so blessed to work with some great filmmakers, that I’m probably cursed to probably ever work as a director myself,” he said. “I don’t think I would be able to compare to what I’ve seen. There are so many things that come into play when you make a movie. I really don’t know how they do it. The truth is, the one thing I regret, if anything, in my long career having worked with the likes of Alejandro [G. Iñárritu] and Marty [Scorsese] is not be able to be a voyeur and stand aside and watch what they do, because I’m only concerned about what the hell I’m doing every single day.

“But, it would have been wonderful to have someone document all the great experiences I had and learn from the decisions. That’s what you have to look for when you work with these directors. It’s these tiny little decisions that change something from being mundane,” he added.
