Why Leonardo DiCaprio Wanted To Go Into ‘Wolf’ Mode

With The Wolf of Wall Street, Leonardo DiCaprio not only earned his fourth nomination for an Oscar in an acting category, but also his first (and, so far, only) Best Picture nomination, since he was one of the producers alongside director Martin Scorsese. The movie was based on a true story, as detailed in the memoir by Jordan Belfort, a stock broker whose salacious rags-to-riches-to-jail story had become the subject of a Hollywood bidding war. When the film opened, DiCaprio spoke about why he was so interested in not only bringing Belfort’s story to the screen, but playing him in the film.
