James Cameron almost didn’t cast Leonardo DiCaprio to play Jack Dawson in “Titanic,” claiming the actor showed up to the audition with a diva-like attitude.

The film’s director recalled meeting with DiCaprio ahead of the record-breaking 1997 flick in an interview with GQ published Tuesday, noting that Kate Winslet had already been cast to star as Rose DeWitt Bukater.

“So Leo came in — of course, charmed everybody, myself included,” Cameron, 68, explained. “And I said, ‘Alright, let’s see what your chemistry’s like with Kate.’”

According to the filmmaker, DiCaprio — who was 22 when the movie hit theaters — thought that meant “another meeting to meet Kate.” But in fact, Cameron had called him in to record the two reading lines together.
