In Django Unchained there is a scene where Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio) cut his hand and then smeared the blood on Broomhilda's (Kerry Washington) face.

Did DiCaprio really accidentally cut his own hand there or was that part of the script and done with effects? There is a cut between these two events, which leads me to believe it was not an accident.

  • What is your question about - cutting the hand or smearing his own blood on Kerry's face? – Mouvier Feb 8 '18 at 14:50

All sources claim that DiCaprio really cut his hand so it seems to be true and there is no reason to think otherwise.

Here's a video with Christoph Waltz talking about that incident.

It was real. A simple Google of "Dicaprio cut hand" would have dug this out:

Additionally, it's in a WatchMojo list of on set injuries:

    This only answers half the question. Yes, he cut his hand. No, he did not smear it on the actresses face. – Tim Feb 8 '18 at 20:07
  • The question, as asked, was, "Did DiCaprio really accidentally cut his own hand there or was that part of the script and done with effects?" – Johnny Bones Feb 8 '18 at 20:59

    The answer, as it is now, could use an edit to answer the second part of the question, though. – Ian Feb 14 '18 at 9:45
  • From what I've seen, he definitely cut his hand, and he definitely smeared blood on the actress's face. The question at hand is, "Did he smear his real blood on her face, or did they reset with fake blood?" I have not seen anything that answers that question. – Azuaron Jan 14 at 15:29

Yes, he really did that. It wasn't scripted, but Quentin Tarantino liked the take so much that he kept it in the film.

    Do you have a source for this? Should we just take your word for it? – JAD Feb 8 '18 at 15:07
