Ellen Page's Leonardo love

July 15th, 2010

Ellen Page loved working with Leonardo DiCaprio because he is a "f***ing movie star".

The 23-year-old actress - who stars alongside Leonardo in Christopher Nolan's sci-fi mystery movie 'Inception - admits she is a fan of the actor, having seen his first big movie 'Titanic' when she was younger.

She said: "Leo is a f***ing movie star. It was really insane to be in a place like Morocco in an area that seems semi-abandoned and have people yelling, 'Leo, Leo,'?

"I was maybe 10 or 11 when I saw 'Titanic'. And yes, I was a fan. I loved it."

Discussing her role as a new recruit to the world of dream espionage in 'Inception', Ellen claims the character is a medium to help the audience understand the idea of entering into people's minds while they are asleep.

She told the Daily Telegraph: "She's just learning about these ideas and, in essence, she assists the audience in learning about dream sharing. It's about how extractors can tap into a subject's dreams and gather information."

'Inception' is released internationally throughout July.
