Leonardo DiCaprio is well respected in the industry due to his incredible method acting and made his name in the industry at a very early age. Especially with his acting in movies like The Wolf of Wall Street, and the record-breaking James Cameron directorial, Titanic. He was also deeply respected in the industry due to these particular reasons.
While filming for The Wolf of Wall Street, DiCaprio was rough on his co-stars and as he was the senior actor, they couldn’t even fight him. Jonah Hill, DiCaprio’s co-star, as the troll he is, abused the fact that Leonardo DiCaprio was very serious about his roles and got back to him in a very funny way.
Jonah Hill’s Revenge on Leonardo DiCaprio
While filming one of the emotional scenes in The Wolf of Wall Street, there was a scene where DiCaprio’s character and Jonah Hill’s character were having sushi. The original script was Hill having the last sushi that was on the plate but when the first scene was shot, Hill’s character was asked, “Do you want the last piece…?”, he rejected and DiCaprio had to eat the last yellow-tailed sushi.
Now, as we know, Leonardo DiCaprio does things to perfection and Johah Hill also knew that DiCaprio would reshoot the whole scene if something was wrong or amiss and abused this fact and rejected the last sushi that he was supposed to have and made DiCaprio eat it over and over. The scene was shot at least 100 times and by the end of it, DiCaprio was throwing up into the bin.
“By the end of the night, he was on the floor, throwing up into a waste bin and everyone was like, ‘Leo, are you okay?’. The only two people hysterically laughing were myself and (director) Martin Scorsese. We have the same sick, twisted sense of humor. But I was like, ‘That’s what you get, man.’”
By the end of the night, Jonah Hill and Martin Scorsese were laughing it off, falling from their chairs whereas DiCaprio was busy being wasted in the bins, shared Jonah Hill.
