The Boyzone lead singer said they were in a poker game together when the Titanic star ran short in 2013.
Ronan Keating told an Australian radio in the morning of October 12 that Leonardo DiCaprio owes him "a couple of hundred dollars" at a poker game in 2013 when the A-lister ran short.
The Irish pop star said, "We played some cards in Sydney a couple of years ago when he was doing [The Great] Gatsby. I think I loaned him a couple of hundred dollars to get in the game and then I think he won and never paid me back!"
He also told News.com.au that even if he covered him with cash, Leo blabbed about a few in-depth truths about both of their skills. Seemed like it was a pretty interesting poker game, as Ronan recently divulged that Leo told him he couldn't act during their match.
The two of them auditioned in Moulin Rouge but lost the part to Ewan McGregor.
Ronan said, "Leo and I were in Sydney playing cards, and I said, ‘Man, what about... Moulin Rouge? F**k me, I couldn't act!' [Leo] said, "Hey, Ronan, you couldn't act, and I couldn't f**king sing for s**t!"‘
The 41-year-old Ronan is not only a singer but he can also act - he acted in the West End performance of Once, in the Australian TV show called Love Child, and the movie Goddess. Of course, there were several acting roles he said he didn't get the part for, "I've read for a few other bits and bobs. The Hobbit and the most recent Beauty And The Beast. I read for a movie in front of Jerry Bruckheimer and Antoine Fuqua, who is an amazing director. It was an Irish movie called King Arthur and I'll never forget it. I was much younger, this is like 15 years ago, maybe even more. That was pretty scary, that scared the sh*t out of me. I obviously didn't get the role."
Currently, Ronan is busy with his new Australian talent show, All Together Now, which is shown on Channel Seven. The program is about a group of 100 judges casting their vote on aspiring singers.
Judging from the good-natured aura of Ronan during the radio interview, it is obvious that the ‘poker debt' is nothing too serious, and it's possible Ronan isn't expecting Leo to pay him back (but maybe he'd want it back if they got together in a poker game again).
Most poker fans know that DiCaprio has been associated with poker for a long time, and the 43-year-old has been mentioned in Molly Bloom's story that he was one of the more friendly players in her infamous high-stakes games.
According to Bloom's book Molly's Game, DiCaprio had a relaxed demeanor at the poker tables, "He had a strange style at the table, though; it was almost as if he wasn't trying to win or lose. He folded most hands and listened to music on huge headphones."
At the gambling felt, Leo appears cool, calm and charismatic, even if he tends to forget to pay his poker debts on the table.
