• Leonardo DiCaprio revealed that he does not know anything about the ending of "Inception"
  • He confessed that everyone was trying to make sense of it but only Nolan knows the truth
  • Last year, Michael Caine explained that the ending was reality and not a dream

Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster hit “Inception” is considered one of the most complex movies of all time and the way it ended was certainly very controversial. Even after 10 years of its release, the viewers are divided on whether Leonardo DiCaprio’s character managed to come out of the dream world, or he got trapped inside his dream forever. Turns out even DiCaprio is not sure what exactly happened at the end of the movie.

Speaking in an interview for Marc Maron’s WTF podcast, the 45-year-old actor revealed that he absolutely has no idea what happened at the end and he is just as clueless as fans are. The Academy Award-winning star also noted that every actor who was part of the movie tried to bifurcate what could have happened but it is only Nolan who knows the truth behind the conclusion of the film.

“I have no idea. You are just focused on your character, man. When it came to Chris Nolan and his mind and how that was all pieced together, everyone was trying to constantly put that puzzle together. Yeah, it depends on the eye of the beholder, I guess,” DiCaprio said.

For the uninitiated, the closing scene of the movie shows DiCaprio’s character, Dom Cobb, completing his task and reuniting with his kids. But when he goes out to his house’s backyard to play with them, the camera closes in on his totem which appears to be wobbling before the ending credits come on to the screen.

However, DiCaprio’s fellow star Michael Caine is quite adamant that the ending sees Dom entering the real world. Last year, on a screening of the acclaimed movie, Caine revealed that Nolan told him that if he is in a scene then it is “reality.”

“When I got the script of ‘Inception ,’ I was a bit puzzled by it. And I said to [Nolan], ‘I don’t understand where the dream is.’ I said, ‘When is it the dream and when is it a reality?’ He said, ‘Well when you’re in the scene, it’s reality.’ So get that — if I’m in it, it’s reality. If I’m not in it, it’s a dream,” Caine said.

The movie also had Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ken Watanabe in pivotal roles.

Meanwhile, the “Wolf Of Wall Street” star is enjoying the success of his latest movie “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.” Quentin Tarantino’s comedy-drama is one of the top contenders for the Best Picture nomination at the upcoming Academy Awards. Moreover, the actor is all set to receive his sixth Best Actor nod for the movie.

DiCaprio’s latest film also won Best Motion Picture (Comedy or Musical) at the recently held Golden Globes.
