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.
One lucky person won the chance to experience a trip of a lifetime at a Cannes charity auction on Thursday night.
The winning bidder snagged a ticket to sit next to Leonardo DiCaprio in Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic flight for 1.2 million euros ($1.5 million U.S.). while at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS charity dinner.
Cannes mainstays Nicole Kidman and Christoph Waltz were also in attendance at the event that raised $25 million, more than doubling their 2012 total.
We're SO excited to see this movie! (And yes, partially because our hearts still go on for Leo...)
A Prada-clad Leonardo DiCaprio attended the New York City premiere of The Great Gatsby on Wednesday evening, and he was joined by co-stars Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire, along with his close pal Jay-Z and a slew of other celebs.
“The last two films that I’ve done have been period pieces infused with hip-hop,” Leo told MTV when asked about the modern music in his latest film. “So it’s really cool that these directors take that chance, and I think it really connects with audiences today."
He continued, “I think it sort of seamlessly meshes into the film in a way that’s almost startling. You don’t feel like you’re watching something from a different era. You’re connecting with these people and this time period in a much more subversive way.”
Isn't it crazy to think that Leo worked with director Baz Luhrmann 18 years ago on Romeo + Juliet?! Glad to see they still have that magic!
Leonardo DiCaprio covers Esquire magazine’s May 2013 issue, and lucky for us, the 38-year-old actor posed for a number of sexy photos for the spread.
Leo chats about his career and what motivates him, but he also reveals a tiny tidbit as to why he ended his last relationship ... and we're 98% sure he's talking about his 10-month romance with Victoria's Secret beauty Erin Heatherton. “Six months of being on location or being off in Morocco or someplace like that is not the best thing for a relationship,” he says.
On what drives him to succeed, Leo tells the mag, "I always thought of myself as the underdog, because I didn’t have nice enough clothes or maybe my hair didn’t look good. And so you have to understand – getting your foot in the door is like winning the lottery. It’s literally like winning the lottery if you get to have a career. And I’ve always felt, Okay, now I’ve gotten this shot, and I’m lucky to have gotten this shot, and if I don’t do this to the best of my ability – if I don’t work my as* off and make a life of it – I’ve squandered this incredibly golden opportunity. And that’s always been what has propelled me."
When discussing his rise to stardom at such an early age, he adds, “I really didn’t understand what fame was and I didn’t understand what being in a giant hit was and I didn’t understand what a giant hit Titanic was compared to other giant hits. There was no rule book. There was nobody to navigate me through the experience of being watched all the time and nobody to tell me how to be normal when everybody is acting and looking at me differently.”
