Leonardo DiCaprio immersed himself in Wolf of Wall Street

Leonardo DiCaprio "gave into indulgence" shooting 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.

The 39-year-old actor stars as Jordan Belfort - a real-like stockbroker who after making millions develops an appetite for cocaine and wild sex - in the new Martin Scorsese-directed film and Leonardo admits he lost himself in the character to give the best performance possible.

He said: "I gave into every possible indulgence on set and I only thought about myself. When you play a character like that, you can just try to be as authentic to that world as possible.

"This is a very hedonistic time [Jordan] had on Wall Street in the late' 80s, 'early 90s ... he gave into every possible temptation that he could [and] became conceited by greed and power and lost his way."

While the film has been criticized for glamorizing drugs, alcohol and excess, Leonardo insists the film - and Jordan's book upon which it is based - is ultimately a "cautionary tale".

Speaking on the red carpet at the UK premier of 'The Wolf of Wall Street' in Leicester Square in London on Thursday night (01.09.14), he explained: "The truth is that Jordan Belfort wrote this as a cautionary tale. He's a much different person now. Since then he's done seminars and talked to groups about how you can take the wrong paths.

"What I appreciate about my communication with him was that he was very honest and forthright about everything he did wrong and most of the time, he would tell me that it was even worse and his intentions were even worse. When you're dealing with somebody who is that forthright, it makes for a more honest portrayal of this world and these people."

Leonardo was joined at the premier by his co-stars Margot Robbie and Jonah Hill at the premier.

Jennifer Lopez in sparkly Gucci at LACMA gala: boringly glamorous?

Nov 3 2014 6:15am CST | Source: Celebitchy.com

Here are some fashion photos from the 2014 LACMA Art + Film Gala honoring Barbara Kruger and Quentin Tarantino. Jennifer Lopez went solo, how shocking. I didn’t even see any photos of Casper Smart sneaking in. I think she genuinely went to a big event by herself. Baby steps, y’all. Jennifer looked great, as always, although this is far from her most interesting look. It’s sort of boringly glamorous, efficiently pretty. I ...

Simone Holtznagel Is The New Face Of Guess

Oct 9 2014 2:49pm CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

Australian models seem to do well for themselves. Unemployment rates among hot blond women with large hooters runs about zero. That takes into account the vast majority who need not look for a job in the first place. This chick is the new face of Guess. Which I think means jeans and jackets primarily for eventual resell in Moroccan bazaars. She joins a long list of Guess girls who have gone on to fuck and marry very successfully like Claudia Schiffer, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Ann ...

Miles Teller on John Cusack: ‘I guess we look alike… but I don’t want his career’

Oct 8 2014 6:45am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Miles Teller is doing the promotional rounds to support Whiplash, the little indie movie with major buzz at many different film festivals. JK Simmons is pretty much guaranteed a Best Support Actor Oscar nomination (if not the actual award) for the film, and I’m sure the film will become one of Teller’s calling cards for casting agents for years to come. Miles is still recovering (sort of) from his W Magazine interview, w ...

Lindsay Lohan Photoshops Herself Into Charity Photo, Continues to be Ridiculous

Oct 6 2014 2:30pm CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

Earlier today, we reported that Lindsay Lohan is teaming up with Oprah for a second season of her reality show that no one watches.  Between that and the fact that Lindsay is actually getting occasional, semi-decent reviews for her performance in a London production of Speed the Plow (after nearly being laughed off the stage in her debut), it was really starting to look like she'd managed to turn her life around. Then she hit us with this ridiculousness: ...
