Leonardo DiCaprio's former personal assistant Kasi Brown has opened up about bagging a job offer to work with one of the finest and handsome actor in Hollywood. Brown assisted the Oscar-winning actor during filming for The Aviator back in 2003.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Brown revealed she got the opportunity to work with the Titanic actor through her personal connections. Her best friend apparently helped her get the job, who was assisting the 41-year-old actor for Catch Me If You Can in 2002.
Talking about DiCaprio, Brown said: "He's extremely down to earth, and he likes to share stories and life experiences with people." Adding on, she revealed that the Inception star has a very "wicked sense of humor" and he likes spending time, and talking to everyone on the set, including crew and extras.
At the end of the shoot, Brown also got lucky to act with DiCaprio, however, it was only off-screen. She apparently received postive response for her performance from Martin Scorsese and the Blood Diamond himself. Sharing some of the happy moments from her assisting days, Brown said: "Leo and I always had fun on set. [We loved] to observe people and goof around playing characters, doing accents, whatever."
"Sometimes, I would pretend that he was the stereotype of an entitled celebrity and when he would ask me to do something, I would bow and in a beaten-down voice say, 'Yes, sir, anything you like sir, anything else, sir?' and he would laugh and tell me to knock it off," she added.
Brown, who fulfilled her dream to direct in 2015 with a comedy movie Gone Doggy Gone, said she learnt the art of dedication, commitment and devotion from the star himself. She recalled: "On the way to set one day, I saw that he kept stepping on all the cracks and spots on the floor in our path. He was playing Howard Hughes, who has OCD, and I realized that he was getting into character."
Brown said that the actor still makes an effort to be in touch, and makes time to give her feedback and suggestions.
