The Wolf of Wall Street is an American biographical comedy-crime movie that came out in 2013. Martin Scorsese directed it.
The screenplay by Terence Winter is adapted from the memoir of the same name by Jordan Belfort and recounts Belfort’s perspective on his career as a stockbroker in New York City and how his firm, Stratton Oakmont, engaged in rampant corruption and fraud on Wall Street that ultimately led to his downfall.
- Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Belfort (and co-produced the film), with Jonah Hill as his business partner and friend Donnie Azoff, Margot Robbie as his second wife Naomi Lapaglia, and Kyle Chandler as Patrick Denham, the F.B.I. agent who tries to bring him down.
- Now you’ve been warned of some slightly inappropriate photos by some viewers; you will get it if you have watched the film! Leonardo DiCaprio was paid $25 million for his role, a quarter of the film’s budget, making him the highest-paid star of the year.
- This movie was banned in 5 countries due to its high sexual content.
- In an interview with Margot Robbie, she reveals that in the scene where Jordan and Naomi have sex for the first time in her apartment. Her dog tried to jump up and bite him, and they had trouble getting the dog to jump, so they had to put dog food and chicken liver all over Leonardo DiCaprio’s feet and between his toes. Real-life ‘Wolf’ Jordan Belfort has a cameo at the film’s end.
- A motivational speaker introduces Leonardo DiCaprio (aka himself). The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) is the popular, non-documentary film with the most “fuck” usage (569 times).
- Martin Scorsese claimed that the sequence of Jordan attempting to get in his car while significantly impaired Lemmons was improvised on filming. Leonardo DiCaprio’s idea is to open the car door with his foot.
- DiCaprio strained his back during the scene and could only perform the stunt once. When Jordan is filming one of his infomercials, he appears on a boat in front of women in brightly coloured bikinis.
- This is a direct homage to Tom Vu’s infomercials from the late 80s and early 90s, in which people would be invited to his get-rich-quick seminars.
- In the scene where Maggie Robbie strips down for Leo, she is so nervous she has three shots to calm her nerves.
- The majority of the film was improvised, as Martin Scorsese often encourages. Wanting to work with Martin Scorsese, Jonah Hill took a pay cut by paying the S.A.G. minimum, which was $60,000.
- Scorsese’s highest-grossing film made $392 million globally. Jordan Belfort coached Leonardo DiCaprio on how to handle his Quaalude misuse and dope-induced brawl with Danny Porush.
- The actual 1991 Hamptons beach party footage is shown in the film, with Jordan Belfort and then-fiancée Nadine Caridi (“Naomi Belfort”) on YouTube.
- Margot Robbie confessed that her sex scene with Leonardo DiCaprio on a bed full of cash was highly uncomfortable, as the fake paper bills had sharp edges resulting in multiple paper cuts to her back.
- Jordan Belfort supported the film and accepted his wrong portrayal, although he disagreed with the film’s portrayal of his second marriage’s dissolution. Although he admitted to having hit his wife during a fight, he claims that it happened earlier during the height of his drug addiction and that their break-up occurred without incident when he was clean and sober.
- Leonardo DiCaprio (Jordan Belfort) and Joanna Lumley (Aunt Emma) kissed twenty-seven times because he felt nervous. Blake Lively considered Naomi. Teresa Palmer and Amber Heard auditioned for Naomi before Margot Robbie.
- When the F.B.I. agents interview Jordan Belfort on his yacht, he hands one of them a list of guests at his wedding. The names on it are the actual names of the film’s crew members.
- In banker cocaine sequences, performers sniffed vitamin B pills. “I was afraid as hell,” PJ Byrne said OK! Magazine. He used his wife’s nice old granny as a mule to smuggle money out of the U.S.
- Jonah Hill said he masturbated with a prosthetic penis. “I had to convince everyone that while their initial inclination was to laugh, I had to take it very seriously so that we got the desired response,” he told the Daily Beast.
- Belfort earned $50 million yearly, reportedly making $12 million in three minutes.
- Belfort preferred Quaaludes. Due to double vision, he landed his chopper on his back lawn. Jonah Hill says, “I want everything that might be real to be real [but] PETA wouldn’t let me eat a genuine goldfish.”
- Chris Evans and Joseph Gordon-Levitt auditioned for a role. Production was halted for a week during Hurricane Sandy’s assault on New York in late 2012. Martin Scorsese was even denied access to his film facility on Manhattan’s 57th Street due to the potential hazards posed by a toppled crane near his building.
- Martin Scorsese claims he didn’t meet the real Jordan Belfort until the film’s premiere. However, Belfort was on-set with Scorsese present during filming.
