Leonardo DiCaprio's untrusting love

July 14th, 2010

Leonardo DiCaprio likes playing untrustworthy characters.

The 35-year-old actor - who has starred as Marshall Teddy Daniels in 'Shutter Island' and as a man who investigates crimes in people's dreams in 'Inception' so far this year - admits he enjoys playing people who can't be trusted as it is "fun".

He said: "I've been having a lot of fun playing protagonists that you can't trust.

"That's been the objective in both these films, is to say lines and not necessarily mean what I say. It's been a lot of fun, and I've got to do it with some pretty talented filmmakers, certainly with Scorsese and now with Chris Nolan."

However, the similarity in genre is where the parallels end, as Leonardo believes both movies have been "executed" very differently.

He told MTV News: "They have some similarities in tone, but they couldn't have been executed any different. This film is beyond anything I've ever seen or experienced in my life.

"It's a very rare occurrence where you can do a movie that exists on four different planes simultaneously. That was the immediate intrigue: delving into the world of the subconscious with Chris Nolan. What could be more fun?"
