So here are the facts from the secret file we've put together on Leonardo DiCaprio playing notorious FBI honcho J. Edgar Hoover on film.

DiCaprio confirmed on Friday he's "talking" to director Clint Eastwood about playing Hoover. Hoover has been dogged through history by reports that he was an enthusiastic cross-dress in his private life.

So will this be the world's chance to see DiCaprio in a kicking frock?

"Will I wear a dress? Not as of yet," DiCaprio said Friday. "We haven't done the fittings for that."

Frankly, that's not exactly a full-dress denial. We know these when we see them.
