“When he was, I think probably all of, I don’t know, 17, 16 maybe, he did Gilbert Grape. I saw it on the Paramount lot. I think I had just been in School Ties or something then, and I was, like, flummoxed, but I just wanted to tell him, Hear, hear. That was incredible.”

Furthermore, DiCaprio too admitted how Frazer was the only actor to ever treat him as an equal rather than a new actor in the process of slowly gaining success. Naturally, before his Titanic phase, he was barely known and was on the path of gaining well-deserved respect. The Wolf Of Wall Street actor went out of his way to recall this moment and tell Brendan Fraser about it just so he could be aware of the positive impact he has on people.
