Last October, Russell Crowe was quoted as saying that when he worked with Leonardo DiCaprio in 1995’s The Quick and The Dead, the then 18-year-old was a virgin. This week, he told Jay Leno that DiCaprio was at the time a virgin who’d never had an alcoholic beverage. However, DiCaprio told Access Hollywood: “He has no idea what he’s talking about,” and refused to elaborate. Meanwhile, Crowe sticks by his story, saying DiCaprio would talk about being a virgin constantly and that a few years after they worked together, he ran into DiCaprio at a film premiere. “He sort of hugged me and whispered in my ear, ‘I’m not a virgin anymore,’” Crowe says with a laugh. The two star together again in Body of Lies, opening next week. Who do you think is telling the truth?
