Leonardo DiCaprio Portrayed Gay Poet Arthur Rimbaud
In 1995, a very young DiCaprio starred in Total Eclipse, playing the tortured gay poet Arthur Rimbaud, seducing fellow poet Paul Verlaine (played by David Thewlis). The film didn't do well at the box office when it was first released, but videos later sold briskly after the success of Titanic maybe because one scene exposes DiCaprio's full-frontal 21-year-old manhood?).
