What do Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, and Tom Hardy all have in common besides their hawtness!?

They've all starred in iconic flicks inspired by real-life events! The elusive, con artist Frank Abagnale Jr. – played by DiCaprio — in the 2002 flick Catch Me If You Can? He was real. The infamous gangster Henry Hill, portrayed by actor Ray Liotta in Goodfellas, from the ‘60s who notoriously robbed Air France of millions of dollars? Real.

But it's not just about movies retelling chilling and infamous cases from previous decades…
