Since the 1990s, Leonardo DiCaprio has become one of the most famous and talented actors in Hollywood history. With a career spanning three decades, it’s only fitting this heartthrob would have several assistants over the years. But one that he dearly remembers is Kasi Brown.
Brown started working for DiCaprio in 2003 while he was shooting “The Aviator,” and she became his personal assistant for nearly two years. Brown said that Leo was kind, smart, and a genuinely down-to-earth guy. And apparently, he’s quite hilarious. With a salary of $100,000 and a boss like that, Brown definitely hit the job jackpot.
Angelica Castillo – Sharon Stone
The “Basic Instinct” star Sharon Stone has a marvelous career under her belt. What she doesn’t have is a good reputation when it comes to employees. In the mid-2000s, Stone hired Angelica Castillo as a housekeeper and personal assistant, and the two seemed to be getting along, at least until 2013.
Stone and Castillo had a massive falling out when Castillo sued her for damages, claiming that the movie star forced her to work when she allegedly had a note from her doctor to stay in bed for weeks due to severe back pain. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Stone has been sued by an employee.
Madison Bigos – Megan Fox
The jaw-droppingly beautiful Megan Fox broke out on the silver screen in the early 2000s with the Transformers franchise, and she’s been getting constant work ever since. You might also remember her from her roles in films like "Jennifer's Body" or the latest installments of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtels."
For the last few years, Fox’s right hand has been assistant Madison Bigos. Fox hired Bigos in 2019 and has cemented a close relationship with Bigos being her P.A. on “Till Death,” “Big Gold Brick,” “Taurus,” and others. Bigos makes $50,000, and Fox gets her life organized and everything done on time. It’s a win-win.
Jessica Snyder – Blake Lively
It isn’t surprising to learn that the stunning and talented Blake Lively is as sweet in real life as she appears to be in her acting roles. Lively skyrocketed to fame with her role in the hit show “Gossip Girl” back in 2000. With increasing job offers and a growing family, Lively needed help, so she hired Jessica Snyder. The two became like sisters.
In 2016, Lively went to Snyder’s wedding just 48 hours after giving birth and posted a photo of her and Snyder, with the caption, “Most beautiful bride on the planet. And the best friend I could ask for. Thank you for being EVERYTHING. I love you.”
Michael Doven – Tom Cruise
Back in 1992, when celebrity superstar Tom Cruise was filming “Far and Away,” he met one of the set assistants — Michael Doven. Cruise was so impressed with his work that he offered him a job as his personal assistant and his life changed forever. Doven obviously accepted the offer and worked with Cruise for 12 years.
With a salary of $80,000, Doven helped Cruise with everything from personal errands to travel plans, work schedules, day-to-day tasks, and basically anything you can imagine. In fact, Doven was the star’s right-hand while filming “Minority Report” and “Mission: Impossible.” Now that’s a CV!
