LEO DI-CRANKY-O! A pretty young Italian girl working on Leonardo DiCaprio’s “Gangs of New York” in Rome waltzed up to him between scenes and simpered: “Ciao! I’m a fan of yours. Can I get an autograph?” Leo went loony, screaming, “Get out of my way! Don’t you know you’re not allowed to speak to me?” Then he rushed over to the guy in charge of extras and read HIM the riot act! The girl was so upset that star Cameron Diaz kindly brought over a cup of coffee to calm her! Moments later, a loudspeaker boomed: “SILENCE, PLEASE . . . As of today, whoever bothers the stars with autograph requests will be FIRED!”
