DiCaprio had some glowing words with his on-screen partner in crime as well. He describes their chemistry as something that “really came naturally.”

“Quentin gave us this amazing backstory of our characters and what we’ve been through and it was one of the more easy, sort of natural fits that I’ve ever experienced,” he added. “Because we kind of knew who these guys were.”
