In the original Shakespeare, Juliet’s age gets delineated explicity as 13, and Romeo, while not given a firm age in the text, seems clearly to be a couple years older. But in most silver screen versions of the story, both characters get somewhat aged. In Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 contemporary telling of the story, the age gap grows as well. Leonardo DiCaprio is four and a half years older than Claire Danes, who was 16 when the movie was filmed, compared to a 21-year-old Leonardo. Other differences from Shakespeare? The actors share a rather mature sex scene likely not simulated at the Globe.
