    Hollywood Icons Discuss Their Epic Collaboration in Martin Scorsese's 'Killers of the Flower Moon

    In a rare and exclusive feature, Hollywood heavyweights Leonardo DiCaprio and Lily Gladstone take the spotlight on the cover of British Vogue’s October issue. The duo, known for their captivating performances in Martin Scorsese’s upcoming epic, “Killers of the Flower Moon,” granted a revealing interview conducted just ahead of the SAG-AFTRA strike. Here, they provide insights into their roles as real-life husband and wife Ernest and Mollie Burkhart, who navigate the tumultuous landscape of 1920s Oklahoma on the Osage Reservation.

    DiCaprio, renowned for his selective interviews and cover appearances, shares the limelight with Gladstone, and together, they shed light on their collaborative journey. Renowned writer Afua Hirsch conducts the interview, complemented by a striking photoshoot by the talented photographer Craig McDean, with impeccable styling courtesy of Edward Enninful.

    The Oscar-winning actor, DiCaprio, effusively praises his co-star Gladstone, describing her performance as “absolutely astonishing” in the film. He attributes the success of the project to her, noting that she “carries the entire film and the story” with remarkable skill and authenticity. Interestingly, DiCaprio reveals that Scorsese’s discerning eye recognized Gladstone’s talent instantly during a virtual meeting, dispelling the need for a formal audition. He elaborates on this rare occurrence, stating, “Marty just instinctively knew Lily was the one… I’ve never known [Scorsese] meet somebody and then immediately afterward have this gravitational pull and instinct to say, ‘Let’s not wait another minute.'”

    “Killers of the Flower Moon” boasts an ensemble cast, including Robert De Niro, Jesse Plemons, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins, Jillian Dion, and Tantoo Cardinal. The film delves into the FBI’s investigation of a series of tragic murders of the Osage people that shook Oklahoma in the early 1920s.

    DiCaprio reflects on the film’s narrative significance, emphasizing that it illuminates a “completely forgotten part of American history” and addresses an “open wound that still festers.” He acknowledges Hollywood’s complex past in portraying Native American stories and calls for more truthful and healing depictions. He states, “The more that these stories can be told in a truthful way, the more it can be a healing process.”

    The actor also delves into the project’s evolution, revealing that Scorsese initially cast him as FBI agent Tom White, a role later taken up by Jesse Plemons. Scorsese’s decision to center Lily Gladstone’s character, Mollie, in the story marked a significant transformation. DiCaprio acknowledges this shift, explaining, “After a certain point, I realized I was making a movie about all the white guys.” Scorsese’s choice allowed the narrative to explore the intricate and unique relationship between Mollie and Ernest Burkhart.

    “Killers of the Flower Moon,” a highly anticipated collaboration between Apple and Paramount, is set to hit theaters globally on October 20. As DiCaprio, Gladstone, and the entire cast breathe life into this compelling tale of history and injustice, audiences can prepare for a cinematic experience that promises both entertainment and enlightenment.
