Despite the fame and fortune, Leonardo DiCaprio is still as humble as can be.
Leo, who was more fox than wolf, signed autographs for eager fans on Saturday outside Beverly Hills' Writer's Guild Theater before attending a screening of his new film The Wolf of Wall Street. Like his boozy onscreen counterpart, party boy Jordan Belfort, he grabbed a cocktail after the event.
The film, which opens on Christmas Day, has already generated Oscar buzz. Leo is yet to nab an Academy Award. According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Martin Scorcese cut explicit sex scenes from the three-hour long movie in order to lower its initial NC-17 rating. Considering the fact that there will be less scantily clad scenes of Leo, we're not sure how to feel about this news.
Yet another trailer for The Wolf Of Wall Street has been released -- and we absolutely cannot wait to see Martin Scorcese's latest film!
Leonardo DiCaprio plays disgraced Wall Street broker Jordan Belfort, who spent 22 months in federal prison for stock market manipulation and other crimes. From his life of excess to his steamy relationship with Margot Robbie's character, Belfort was living large up until the day he got busted by the feds.
Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin, Rob Reiner and Kyle Chandler also star in the film, which will be released on Christmas Day.
Hollywood's leading men went unnoticed at yesterday's Casamigos Halloween party thanks to their masked looks.
Leonardo DiCaprio wore a head to toe black Grim Reaper-esque costume, while Sean Penn only covered his face with a devil's mask. John Stamos also showed up as a devil, but his painted red face and protruding horns were a much more effective approach to the costume.
Sasha Baron Cohen took home the award for the most unrecognizable and strangest costume with his gorilla ski mask a grandma body pillow/puppet look. His wife Isla Fisher added to the oddity with her Strawberry Shortcake outfit and fox mask.
David Spade was one of the few actors who didn't cover up with a mask, instead donning another artist's identity. The comedian dressed up as photographer Terry Richardson. If only he had convinced a female friend to show up as Miley Cyrus, the look would have been complete.
We're surprised Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't have a hot model on his arm, but we're sure he had plenty of eye candy once he got inside...
Leo and director pal Martin Scorsese attended Giorgio Armani’s One Night Only Fashion Show in New York on Thursday evening, and other guests included Renee Zellweger, Hilary Swank, Dianna Agron, Olivia Palermo, Naomi Watts, Ricky Martin and Peter Facinelli ... that's quite an interesting crowd!
So what else is new with Leo? The 38-year-old actor is set to produce and potentially star in a film adaptation of the upcoming crime novel Blood on the Snow, according to Variety. The book, which is being written by Jo Nesbo, will be published next spring, and the story follows a hit man who falls for the woman he’s been assigned to kill. The woman also happens to be the wife of his boss. Sounds twisted and we kinda love it!
Leonardo DiCaprio covers the new issue of New York Magazine, and the 38-year-old star talks all about his highly-anticipated film The Wolf Of Wall Street.
DiCaprio plays Jordan Belfort, a mega wealthy stockbroker whose high life came crashing down when he was found guilty of various crimes involving stock market manipulation. In between making money and going to jail, Belfort struggled with a drug addiction and apparently had lots of sex, and Leo opens up about some of the more controversial scenes in the Martin Scorcese-directed flick.
Of getting to know Belfort, DiCaprio said:
"I wanted a close relationship with him so that I could weave intimate details into the movie ... things that weren’t in the book. I was kind of the middleman between him and Marty, and I would bring pages of notes from my meetings with Jordan—things like this insane orgy on a 747 going to Vegas, chimpanzees in diapers that would skate through the Stratton offices, very intimate stuff about his relationships with women -- and Marty was game to try everything."
In another notable scene, "a coked-up Belfort furiously dry-humps a first-class stewardess on a flight to Switzerland," writes NY Mag, but this one of the tamer plot points! “It’s a modern-day Caligula,” says DiCaprio, “the height of debauchery.”
When screenwriter Terence Winter was asked about the craziest/most memorable scene in the movie, he replied:
"There’s a scene where Donnie [Jonah Hill's character] and Jordan take a lot of vintage quaaludes from the eighties. It takes a while for them to kick in, so they keep taking more ... DiCaprio and Hill on drugs rival Laurel and Hardy. When my wife read the scene, she was nursing our newborn son, and she nearly dropped the baby she was laughing so hard. You alternate between enjoyment and thinking, When is it going to stop? How can they possibly survive this?"
We can't wait to find out! The film hits theaters on November 15.
We love us some Leonardo DiCaprio, and this movie looks fantastic!
The first trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street has hit the web, and the film follows the story of New York stockbroker who "refuses to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, corporate banking world and mob infiltration," according to IMDb.
Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey and hottie newcomer Margot Robbie also star in the flick, which is directed by Martin Scorsese.
