Man behind Leonardo DiCaprio’s Revenant bear attack revealed

The infamous bear attack scene in the Oscar-nominated adventure The Revenant involved Leonardo DiCaprio, his stunt double, some special effects and a stuntman in a blue suit.

Glenn Ennis is the man in question, who donned a special outfit to help create the brutal sequence that has DiCaprio’s frontiersman mauled, and nearly killed, by a bear. Ennis is a 51-year-old stuntman who has previously worked on films such as Freddy vs Jason and Watchmen.

“In rehearsals, I would wear a blue suit with a bear head,” he said in an interview with Global News. “Obviously that doesn’t make it into the film, and the CGI guys paint the bear in. Alejandro [Iñárritu] was adamant that the blue bear moved just like a real bear would move, and it was essential that it had the same nuances that a bear would have. Even though it was a big Smurf bear, it still had to be as authentic as possible.”
