Sometimes you stumble upon a piece of celeb news that seems too funny to be real. This time it’s centered on Leonardo DiCaprio, who starred in a little movie called Titanic, a blockbuster hit that is beloved by many. But it turns out DiCaprio might actually be the biggest fan of the film.
Interior designer and Flip or Flop alum, Megan Weaver, reveals that DiCaprio’s Malibu beach house was decorated with Titanic memorabilia in the ’90s. We’re talking about a lot more than a couple of posters.
“When I was working for Leo, his mom let me—his mom was so sweet—let me stay at his beach house in Malibu for the weekend. I was dating somebody who was living in Canada, having a long-distance relationship and he came to town, and so they let me have the beach house,” Weaver explained during an episode of the Behind the Ropes podcast. “I didn’t tell him where we were going and we walk into this beach house and everything was Titanic.”
Wait, her boyfriend at the time didn’t know he was going to Leonardo DiCaprio’s house?! And then, he walked in to only see that it’s a shrine to Titanic? Epic. Incredible. Obsessed.
“Titanic towels, Titanic posters, Titanic everywhere,” she revealed. “And so, [my boyfriend] did look at me and was like, ‘Is this Leo’s house?’ And I was like, ‘Yes this is Leo’s house.’ So that was pretty amazing. I don’t think that’s something he would do now, but back then… again, this was like the ’90s. I think the film wasn’t even that old [yet]. It was also not his main house, and he hardly went there, so I think it was probably his mom who did it.”
Maybe, but I’d like to think that it was all DiCaprio.
