DiCaprio said he spent a lot of time with the man the movie is based on -- former stock broker Jordan Belfort -- to get a feel for portraying the depraved side of the financial world. "I wanted a close relationship with him so that I could weave intimate details into the movie."
"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," he reveals.
One of DiCaprio's costars in the film, Jonah Hill, also confirmed the outrageous portrayals in The Wolf of Wall Street, which hits theaters in November. "I can safely say that this is the craziest performance I'll ever give as far as what the character gets involved with."
