Leonardo DiCaprio fans, I've got some titillating news for you. When you check out his lurid sexual performances in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, including what's likely to be a buzzed-about moment featuring DiCaprio, a dominatrix, and a candle, keep in mind that everything you see onscreen is really him. Meaning, he brought everything to the table, if you know what I mean. He really put all of himself into the role. He, um ...
What I'm saying is that he didn't use a body double. Or a stunt penis, for that matter. The reason we can be assured of this fact is that DiCaprio has proudly declared that it's all him in the movie's kinky scenes (which are apparently so explicit the film almost got an NC-17 rating), and the colorful way he denied using a body double is either the sexiest thing you've heard all week -- or the most hilarious.
Thirty-nine-year-old DiCaprio is already earning rave reviews for his performance as stockbroker swindler Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, but it sounds like his dangly bits should be up for an Oscar of their very own. As he put it in an interview with Extra,
It was all me, pal. All the flopping around, it was all me.
My my. That's certainly ... evocative, isn't it? ALL THE FLOPPING AROUND. Oh Leo, whisper in my ear again about how your junk was all flappy and sort of loose and limp. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
Okay, I just had to laugh about that quote, but good on him for going balls to the wall in this movie. (Literally.) He described how he was able to fully embrace the part despite the challenge of portraying orgies, S&M, and various other eyebrow-raising scenes that might send a more modest actor running for the hills:
Look, when you do a character like this, you have to go all out. You can’t pull any punches. You have to swing for the fences. You just gotta do it. You can’t think about yourself because it’s not me. It’s a depiction of somebody else. (...) Hopefully people enjoy it.
Personally, I'm pretty excited to see The Wolf of Wall Street after it opens on Christmas Day. I loved Goodfellas, and this looks like almost the same damn film, but funnier -- and apparently dirtier.
Are you looking forward to The Wolf of Wall Street? Do you plan to keep an eye out for any flopping around?
