Robert De Niro on Leonardo DiCaprio in ‘Shutter Island’

Actors on actors

“I didn’t know anything about the story going in. You don’t know what’s real and what’s not real, and as it unfolds Leo’s character is just so committed to what he believes that not until late in the movie did I think something was wrong. And as an actor, Leo is just that committed and intense. He plays this character with such committment that I was fooled. Of course, there’s such intensity in the situation: He’s so distraught about being ‘tricked’ and he carries that feeling all the was through the movie, as he is supposed to. He was terrific.”
