 LACMA’s Art + Film Gala continues to be the most glamorous night on the Los Angeles fall calendar, and never more so than this year, with Alessandro Michele, the red-hot designer of gala partner Gucci, dressing the evening’s most photogenic attendees and inspiring the dinner’s lush floral design. LACMA trustee Eva Chow and Leonardo DiCaprio hosted the gala, which raised more than $3.6 million in support of the museum’s film initiatives.

Awesome article detailing how Leo (and Denzel Washington) are one of the few rare actors working today that are able to get audiances to the movies. :thumbsup:

 

The Important Reason Denzel Washington And Leonardo DiCaprio Are Still Movie Stars

 

Quote


In fact, I would put him alongside Leonardo DiCaprio as one of the last old guard movie stars left outside the realm of cheap-ish comedy vehicles.

If we argue brands and IPs have killed or at least mortally wounded the would-be movie star, then we must also look at just why DiCaprio and Washington can still pull in big bucks for the kinds of projects that might not scream “big bucks.” Both actors have mostly forsaken the lure of the franchise or the IP and kept up a career where they were the main attraction.

 

Leonardo DiCaprio has a reputation for large scale, adult-skewing prestige pictures that qualify as events partially because he is the featured star. Films like Shutter Island, Inception and The Revenant were outright events partially because they starred DiCaprio. Who else gets Shutter Island to $294 million or The Revenant to $533m worldwide?

 

Partially by working with the likes of Scorsese, Spielberg, Tarantino and Nolan in their prime, he gets adults out to the movies in massive numbers for (mostly) non-branded content that otherwise would struggle even to get made. He has never made a sequel and, with the arguable exception of The Great Gatsby, he has focused almost exclusively on varied genre offerings where he is one of the main attractions, if not the outright main attraction.

 

Throughout their careers, especially over the last 15 years, who Washington and DiCaprio play in said film has mattered significantly less than that Washington or DiCaprio starred in said movie. They have never really gone the IP-driven franchise route, and they have never played characters who were more of a brand than the actors themselves.

 

Even in an adaptation like The Equalizer, the sale is “Denzel Washington as Righteous Avenger Man.” Even in The Wolf of Wall Street, the core appeal is watching DiCaprio play in Scorsese’s cocaine-fueled fantasy. They have kept their star power as valuable as it was in a less “star+brand” era because they remained the main event.

 

They don’t play iconic superheroes or pop culture icons, so they have remained icons themselves. As movie stardom has become less vital due to a reliance on branded content and IP-driven franchises, Denzel Washington and Leonardo DiCaprio have kept themselves above the fray precisely by avoiding the kind of franchise fare that would turn them into glorified added value elements.

If many of the stars of today struggle because they are more defined by the pop culture characters they play, then DiCaprio and Washington buck the trend by ensuring that they remain the main attraction.

The bash began around 9 p.m. DiCaprio and Agdal arrived together two hours later and sat in a booth with friends. The two also showed some PDA; the actor leaned over at one point and gave Agdal a kiss. Maguire, who is good friends with DiCaprio, was spotted chatting with people near the couple's booth. French Montana was spotted flirting with a group of women. Johnson was seen talking to friends inside another booth.


Earlier on Friday, DiCaprio and Agdal attended a celebration for Martin Scorsese and his film Silence at the Soho House West Hollywood club. DiCaprio was seen introducing Agdal to people and the two held hands as they chatted with the guests, which included studio exec Brad Grey as well as actor Paul Sorvino and MPAA chairman Chris Dodd.
