Here’s an unexpected twist in the ancient genre of Celebrity Assistant Tell Alls: Leonardo DiCaprio’s former lackey has spoken out…and she has nothing but positive things to say about him.
Actress Kasi Brown was Leo’s assistant on set for The Aviator back in 2003, and according to her account, he’s basically the chillest boss ever.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Brown shared that she and Leo both bonded over a love of “rap music” and Halloween, which is the star’s favourite holiday because it allows him to be anonymous for once, and have real interactions with people. (Oh, Leooo).
Apparently they had a running joke about Leo being a total diva, which led to our favourite quote of the piece:
“Sometimes, I would pretend that he was the stereotype of an entitled celebrity and when he would ask me to do something, I would bow and in a beaten-down voice say, ‘Yes, sir, anything you like sir, anything else, sir?’ and he would laugh and tell me to knock it off.”
