Romeo + Juliet (1996) Trivia: Rumors swirled regarding Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes rapport behind cameras. Claire addresses the topic in interviews: "Our chemistry was really sudden. I think we clicked much easier on-screen than we did off. It was sort of hard for us to connect or relate when we were ourselves. There was definitely a spark, but I don’t think either of us knew how to handle it. So, we sometimes sort of ignored each other. It was too big for us to really accept."
