jerusalem: the biography

Leonardo DiCaprio remembers the exact moment when Titanic transformed his life. It came at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. James Cameron’s disaster epic was on it’s way to becoming the biggest movie in history and DiCaprio, then 23, had a young girl stuck to his leg. The delusional fan, overcome with emotion at finally being able to clap not just eyes on the heartthrob she had only dreamt about, rugby tackled the actor and clung on for dear life.

Amid the chaos and the throng, Leonardo had a moment of clarity and the absurdity of the situation struck home. “I looked her in the eye,” he would later recall “and said whatever illusions of grandeur you have about me, they’re not true. I will sit here and i will talk to you. You don’t need to cling; you don’t need to dig your nails into my leg. It doesn’t have to be this.” But the girl, who was no more than 14, had other ideas. It was as if she believed that by hanging on there, he somehow wouldn’t notice - and she wasn’t about to give up such an opportunity without a fight.

DiCaprio said: “She just pressed her head against my leg. I said What are you doing sweetheart? And she kept clutching. There was just a sort of obsessed look in her eye. She wasn’t looking at me though, just my leg. I looked at her and sort of grabbed her face and said: Hi, it’s OK, no, you can … you can get off my leg. It’s fine. She kept saying: No, no, no! And i had to gently pry her hands off. If Leonardo had been in any doubt up until that point that "Leo-Mania” had gripped the world - the most hysterical fan reaction since the Beatles - it was truly confirmed at that moment.

Really elections it is more important than human life?

The brother drinks in a black way, we with mum very much struggle, we persuade to be treated, we appeal to conscience. Helps nothing! From apartment gradually cunningly one behind another: the Computer, the Washing machine, a computer table, a pier glass, mirrors, the vacuum cleaner, interroom doors, the refrigerator. The wife has run away even earlier. Its new “friend” released from jails has broken to the brother a nose. And last night, when I the brother of visors to itself, it have broken a door and have stolen the last - the TV. I understand what to continue to live there - disastrous for it. But! The main thing that this  destruction starts with its Way of life, after all neighbours - people basically family, working, behind a wall the neighbour of the brother in a platform, I heard, even in police works (There were cops - became понты!) And they do not have such problems. But! What to do to us in this situation, at such relation of the brother (he does not want to resist), neighbours, authorities? Today I, as well as yesterday (twice), went to police to meet the divisional, to ask for it the help. But! Also it is ineffectual. Instead of participation I have seen Indifference; when I have addressed to group of policemen which sat in audience supposedly how to meet the divisional of the Fifth kilometre, anybody and words has not said. And only the entered employee, having talked over with me with some impudence that they-de do not sober and so forth, has specified to me then in the young employee supposedly approach to it, he will write down you. I have approached, that has with a great effort lifted a head and, having listened to me, has told that all of them will be now strongly occupied on Polling districts in connection with elections and that I have approached on Tuesday (and today Thursday!) . I have objected, - so after all till Tuesday all can happen! But it has sounded, as “the Voice scandalous in desert”
 I have left with feeling of disappointment. Really elections it is more important than human life?
