Currently Crushing: Leo as Gatsby

I saw The Great Gatsby on Saturday and ever since I can't get Leo's character out of my head. Not just because of how incredibly handsome he is or how dreamy his suits are. This is the Gatsby that Fitzgerald wrote about (in my humble opinion) brought to life. This is the Gatsby that charmed Daisy and died for her. This is the Gatsby that hosted lavish parties simply to catch the attention of the love of his life. Now, I know there have been harsh reviews and criticisms of Luhrmann's Gatsby and I'm sure there are even some of you that were left disappointed. But for me, my love of Leo has been reignited and I'm kind of aching to hang a poster of him on my bedroom wall (circa middle school, 1998).

I'm going to see the movie tomorrow, I think Leo looks great in the role, he's a great choice for Gatsby.

I can't wait to see it :)

Leo is such an amazing actor, so his performance was naturally great. I'm not sure if it was his awesome acting or special effects, but he actually looked younger and more alive in the scenes with Daisy–it was amazing!

I agree! He did a great job. This is the first movie I've thought he was really hot in since Titanic. *blush*

I want to live in The Great Gatsby movie. I would have killed to have attended one of his apartments. And that cream sweater on Gatsby was amazing. I need it in my life.

I have no idea what the critics are thinking. The movie was perfect. Leo included. He WAS Gatsby.
