Leonardo DiCaprio has pulled out of the untitled Mel Gibson directed viking pic amidst allegations that Mel punched Oksana Grigorieva and their baby in the face. Which makes sense. Everything DiCaprio has touched so far has turned to gold. The latest being the awesome Inception which is still #1 at the box office. There’s little doubt he’ll risk his reputation by aligning himself with an alleged woman beater just so he can wear a kick ass viking costume.
“Not a chance,” said a source, close to the Inception star, when asked if he was still planning to star in Gibson’s next project.
A source close to DiCaprio said the star, who is currently basking in the release of his wildly acclaimed box-office topping movie Inception, did not want to risk his reputation, with being associated with Mel.
“Leo has earned the right to pick and choose who he works with and Mel Gibson is not one of them,” the source added. (Radar)
Mel shouldn’t worry though. He can still make a comeback. Just look at Chris Brown who punched Rihanna in the face 50 times. The public was against him for a while but he bounced right back. Oh… wait.
