Dream Team: Danny Boyle And Leonardo DiCaprio For Steve Jobs Biopic


Danny Boyle Leonardo Dicaprio

Dream team Leonardo Dicaprio and Danny Boyle may be teaming up once again to work on the Aaron Sorkin-written biopic of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. Gatsby actor Leonardo DiCaprio has previously worked with English film director Boyle on the 2000 film The Beach, so the pair are already well acquainted with one another and have proven successes in their back catalogue.

Danny Boyle Steve Jobs Danny Boyle will be picking up the Steve Jobs biopic now David Fincher is out

DiCaprio is said to be Boyle's top choice to play Jobs, the Apple co-founder who passed away in 2011 following complications from pancreatic cancer, which he had been suffering with for many years. There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the upcoming biopic, particularly since director David Fincher, who had been pegged to direct, passed on the role. Fincher was said to have been desperate to cast Oscar-winner Christian Bale in the role, a choice many fans had concurred with. Fincher dropped out of the project due to salary dispute and issues over creative control, and with him the possibility that Bale will don Jobs’ signature black polo neck and glasses.

Is 'The Revenant' Leonardo DiCaprio's Oscar Winning Movie?


Leonardo Dicaprio

Leonardo Dicaprio will continue his hunt for a best actor Oscar with Gonzalez Inarritu's The Revenant, a gritty thriller about a fur trapper in 1820s America. The movie is an adaptation of Michael Punke's 2003 novel.

Leonardo DiCaprioLeonardo DiCaprio Missed Out On The Oscar For 'The Wolf of Wall Street'

The book follows Hugh Glass, a 19th century fur trapper who gets mauled by a bear and is left fighting for his life after being robbed, forcing him to set out on a treacherous journey to exact revenge on those who betrayed him. Glass - whom DiCaprio will portray - is described as "deserted, defenceless and furious."

Was That Really Leonardo DiCaprio Dancing At Coachella? We Investigate.


Leonardo Dicaprio

By now you’ve probably all seen that video of a man thought to be Leonardo Dicaprio busting out some serious dance moves at Coachella over the weekend. Whilst Leo hasn’t come out to confirm or deny that was him, the generally consensus online seems to be that yes indeed it was the Titanic star. With all the internet furor the clip has created we thought this one we needed some further investigation before we decided it was definitely DiCaprio.

Leonardo DiCaprio Leonardo DiCaprio as we're used to seeing him

In the thirteen second clip, a man is seen seemingly having the time of his life, partying with friends. Of course a man dancing like an idiot during a MGMT festival set is nothing to write home about, or even bother recording, but if the man is Leonardo DiCaprio, then you’ve got an epic viral video on your hands. From what we can see it seems that maybe when Leo’s not being a suave red carpet darling he really likes to let loose and show off some priceless dance moves, worthy of any dad at a wedding.

Ignore The Bookies, It Could Be Leonardo DiCaprio's Year At The Oscars


Leonardo Dicaprio Matthew Mcconaughey Christian Bale Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences Bruce Dern Chiwetel Ejiofor

Let's ignore the bookmakers' predictions for this Sunday's Oscars (March 2, 2014). The people who devise these odds have not seen the movies and base their prices on critics' reviews and public opinion of movies, actors and actresses. The McConnaissance - see Mud, Dallas Buyers Club, Wolf of Wall Street and True Detective - has left bookmakers quaking in their boots and reducing Matthew Mcconaughey's odds of winning best actor to 1/9. It's true that his portrayal of Ron Woodruff is probably the best of his career, though the Texan is way off being considered a nailed certainty on to win the award.

Leonardo DiCaprio Wolf of Wall StreetWill Jonah Hilll [L] Be Congratulating Leonardo Dicaprio [R] At The Oscars?

Consider the alternatives: we've got Chiwetel Ejiofor, the star of the finest movie of the year, Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave. History suggests that when a movie gains a momentum at the Oscars, it can rattle through the categories taking awards that it probably had no right to win. Nobody would complain should Ejiofor take best actor on Sunday anyway, though McConaughey and Leonardo DiCaprio could find themselves with little chance if the Academy has voted for 12 Years in the same way it took to The King's Speech and The Artist.

Nicky "Rugrat" Koskoff, a character in The Wolf of Wall Street played by actor P.J. Byrne, has come under intense scrutiny after a federal lawsuit asserted that it is "readily apparent" that he is based on Andrew Greene, a former Wall Street lawyer.

Leonardo Dicaprio

Leonardo Dicaprio is one of the most prolific actor’s in the movie industry today, and he hopes to win his first Oscar at this year’s premier movie award ceremony.

The 39 year-old is nominated for Best Actor for his brilliant, yet harrowing, portrayal of corrupt Wall Street broker Jordan Belfort in the Martin Scorsese-directed ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’.

A lawyer has launched a lawsuit against Martin Scorsese's movie The Wolf of Wall Street, alleging that he has been defamed by the character Nicky "Rugrat" Roskoff. Andrew Greene's suit that it was "readily apparent" the character, known in the movie as "Rugrat," was based on him.

Actor P.J. Byrne plays the character in the Oscar-nominated stockbroker drama who earns his nickname because of his toupee and willingness to launder money.

Despite Drug-Addled Belfort Role In 'Wolf', Leonardo DiCaprio Insists He's Never Taken Drugs


Leonardo Dicaprio

There was to be no method acting on this one. Leonardo Dicaprio may be in line for an Oscar for portraying the drug-addicted stockbroker Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street, but the star didn’t have a personal experience of drug use to fall back on because, well, he’s never taken drugs.

Wolf of Wall Street

“That’s because I saw this stuff literally every day when I was 3 or 4 years old,” DiCaprio said. “So Hollywood was a walk in the park for me…. I’d go to parties and it was there and, yeah, there’s that temptation,” he explained to The Los Angeles Times.

Out Of The Furnace Review


Very Good

Coarse and not exactly subtle, this dark drama might disappoint viewers expecting a more traditional revenge thriller, but there's something more interesting going on here. And even though it starts at full volume and only gets more intense, the film is actually remarkably thoughtful and measured in its approach.

It's set in the Rust Belt, industrial Pennsylvania, where Russell (Bale) works in a steel mill and worries about his little brother Rodney (Affleck), who's deep in debt to a local bookie (Dafoe). Then a late-night car crash lands Russell in prison, and when he's released everything has changed. He has no job, his girlfriend (Saldana) is now dating the local sheriff (Whitaker), and Rodney is paying off his debts by fighting in bare-knuckle boxing matches. Even more perilous is the fact that all of this puts the brothers on a collision course with vicious local redneck Harlan (Harrelson), who has no intention of making their lives easier.

The film opens with a particularly brutal display of Harlan's menace, so we know what's coming. And as everything goes from bad to worse for our two heroes, the film feels almost aggressively harsh. Of course, Bale and Affleck are terrific as these damaged men whose fierce bond both helps and puts them into danger. And both actors let us see beneath the surface as their lives fall apart. In what could be the thankless ex-girlfriend role, Saldana has some surprisingly powerful moments. And Harrelson is a deeply terrifying force to reckon with.

Leonardo DiCaprio And Jonah Hill 'Titanic' Re-Enactment Buzz Refuses To Die Down [Video]


Leonardo Dicaprio Jonah Hill Michael Cera Melissa McCarthy

The Grammy Awards may have dominated the entertainment news from the weekend but one story is refusing to die down. Jonah Hill and Leonardo Dicaprio has Saturday Night Live audiences in stitches last Saturday when the Wolf of Wall Street co-stars decided to re-enact the iconic prow scene from Titanic. Hill returned to SNL on the 25th January to host the show for the third time.

With the comedy actor's newly found Oscar-nominated star power, his hosting alone would have probably been enough for the enthusiastic crowd but when DiCaprio dropped by, interrupting Hill mid-flow in his intro speech, excitement was sent into overdrive. "Honestly, my whole life feels like a dream come true right now," Hill said in his opening monologue. "Between 'Moneyball' and 'Wolf of Wall Street' and getting nominated for my second Academy Award, I just couldn't be more grateful."

Jonah Hill's Tiny 'Wolf Of Wall Street' Pay Packet & The Other Stars Who've Taken A Pay-Cut For Success


Jonah Hill Leonardo Dicaprio Martin Scorsese Harry Shearer The Simpsons Keanu Reeves

Jonah Hill has made headlines recently after it was revealed he was paid just $60,000 for his Oscar-nominated role in The Wolf of Wall Street. Now, $60,000 is a lot of money to a lot of people, but in the world of Hollywood actors and their big pay cheques, Hill was paid pitance for his work. Still, he is not the only one to take a pay cut for the sake of the project paying them.

Jonah Hill
Jonah Hill is apparently nothing like his character in Donnie Azoff

Hill decided to take a pay cut, from the usual 6-7 figure digit he tends to receive, because he was so determined to get the part of Donnie Azoff so he could work with the director of the project, Martin Scorsese. By putting his dreams first and his bank account last, Hill has received his second Oscar nomination to date and has been roundly praised by critics for his role. What's more , Hill isn't alone in taking one for the team and opting out of a big pay cheque for the sake of the project he's appearing in.

Unlike Donnie Azoff, Jonah Hill Earned 'Minimum Wage' For 'Wolf Of Wall Street'


Jonah Hill Leonardo Dicaprio Martin Scorsese

Jonah Hill’s character in The Wolf of Wall Street – the ridiculous Donnie Azoff – is a man whose bad taste never outguns his monumental salary. Drugs, alcohol, £3,000 Armani suits and fast cars don’t dent the hefty bank balance he accumulated via stock market manipulation and the penny stock boiler room that was Stratton Oakmont.

But Hill’s real-life paystub paled in insignificance to Azoff’s in Scorsese’s controversial black comedy. The star was so enthusiastic to work with the legendary director, he took a huge pay cut to get the role. And when we say minimum wage, we’re talking about an actor’s minimum wage…

As far as careers in acting go, Lupita Nyong'o has had one of the most impressive yet equally short stints in the spotlight. Barely out of her twenties, the actress has excelled in her first movie role in Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave. Nyong'o is picking up awards and new nominations for her supporting role alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor, Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender at an alarming rate with the golden prize - an Oscar - comfortably within her reach.

'The Wolf Of Wall Street': Does Controversy Help?


Leonardo Dicaprio Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese is no stranger to controversy (see 1988's The Last Temptation of Christ), but you'd hardly expect a 71-year-old director to be accused of glorifying sex and drugs on-screen. And yet, stories of audience outcry have been swirling since his new movie The Wolf of Wall Street started screening for awards voters. Read our review of the movie here.

Jonah Hill Leonardo DiCaprioJonah Hill [L] and Leonardo Dicaprio [R] in 'The Wolf of Wall Street'

Both Scorsese and star Leonardo DiCaprio have been quick to point out that the film never glamorises the excesses depicted in the film. DiCaprio has said that he thinks people who say the film glorifies wild sex and drug abuse have "missed the boat entirely".

Matthew McConaughy is on a real hot streak right now, proving that reputations can be shaken almost as quickly as they’re gained in the fickle entity that is Hollywood. Following up his moving performance as the drifting outsider in Mud with an award winning turn in Dallas Buyers Club, the one-time, almost exclusively topless romantic comedy star is heading into The Oscars with a nomination for Best Actor, and he’s a solid chance of taking it home, too.

The Wolf Of Wall Street Review


Extraordinary

At age 71, Martin Scorsese proves with this riotous romp that he's one of the most energetic, audacious filmmakers working in America at the moment. And with his long-time 74-year-old editor Thelma Schoonmaker, he has created one of the most entertaining cautionary tales in recent memory. Not only does it highlight an unruly period in banking history, but it has a lot to say about where we are now.

This is the true story of Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio), who was 21 when he got his first job on Wall Street in the rough-and-tumble 1980s. Thanks to his illicit deals, he was a multi-millionaire within five years, tutored by a jaded veteran (McConaughey) and assisted by an enthusiastic novice (Hill). Along the way, he also swaps for a much more glamorous wife (Robbie), whose British aunt (Lumley) becomes part of his scam to stash his cash with a shady Swiss banker (Dujardin). But with an FBI agent (Chandler) on his trail, Jordan suspects that the high life can't go on forever.

At just under three hours long, the film sometimes feels like it is wallowing in the excessive sex and drugs along with these Wall Street criminals. But there's a jagged undercurrent to everything: all of this hedonism may look like fun, but someone is paying the price. The film is an often thrilling series of set-pieces that roll out in waves of comedy, tragedy and farce as these people play on the edge of an abyss. And it's great to see scenes play out in real time, with deep conversations, riotous comedy riffs and characters who are full of conflicting layers.

The Real Wolf Of Wall Street May Lose His Rights Payment To Compensate Victims


Leonardo Dicaprio Martin Scorsese

It’s easy to forget amidst the numerous swearwords, all-star cast and award ceremonies that Jordan Belfort – played by the recently Globed Leonardo Dicaprio in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street – may lose his $1m rights payment to aide the remuneration of his victims.

Wolf of Wall StreetWolf of Wall Street is out this Friday (Jan 17) in the U.K

Belfort was convicted of money-laundering and securities fraud and served 22 months of a four-year sentence. He was bound to pay $110.4m to his victims, but has only paid $11.6m, according to federal prosecutors, meaning his fee - or at least a portion of it - could be seized.

The Bafta nominations didn’t really throw up any surprises, with many of the year’s top actors, directors and films being recognised. The constant metronome of: ‘Gravity,’ ’12 Years a Slave’ and ‘American Hustle’ still chimes away; the Oscar favourites are set to do battle.

GravityGravity is leading the way with 11 Bafta nominations

So 'Gravity' leads the way with 11 nominations; it’ll go up against '12 Years a Slave' in the Best Film Category as well as 'American Hustle', 'Captain Phillips' and 'Philomena', a film the Alfonso Cuaron space thriller must also beat to win Outstanding British Film gong. 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom', 'Rush', 'Saving Mr. Banks' and 'The Selfish Giant' make up that category.

Leonardo DiCaprio Almost Became Lunch For A Very Hungry Great White Shark


Leonardo Dicaprio

Leonardo Dicaprio may be considered one of the best actors of his generation, and he chooses his roles carefully. One of his roles put him in a very dangerous situation though.

Five Amazing Clips From The Wolf Of Wall Street


Leonardo Dicaprio Jonah Hill Martin Scorsese

If you haven’t seen The Wolf of Wall Street, because a) you don’t live in America or b) the violently abusive language has been well documented by the press, or even c) you can’t be bothered, then these clips might interest you. Well, apart from you b) folks, you can go **** a ******* **** can’t you.

The Wolf of Wall Street

Martin Scorsese’s indulgent white collar crime comedy drama sees Leonardo Dicaprio fill the boots of Jordan Belfort, a 90s stockbroker who spent 22 months in jail following the fraudulent activity in 1998.

The Wolf Of Wall Street - Clips


It's a wild ride of drinking, drugs, debauchery and deception when the ambitious Jordan Belfort decides that he wants to be one of the rich kids. Starting out his stockbroker business in a small office with a handful of employees, his aims are simple; target only the richest people in the country. It isn't long before Belfort and his team find themselves with more money than they know what to do with and begin to live their lives manically high off the success. However, Belfort hasn't exactly been making what you'd call an honest living and pretty soon the secrets of his fraudulent profits and money laundering draws attention from the authorities. And not only that, his disregard for others' sufferings means he's got a lot more to lose than his beloved business.

'The Wolf of Wall Street' is a gritty white-collar crime drama based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, a former stockbroker who served 22 months in prison for his fraudulent activity in 1998 and subsequently wrote two memoirs entitled 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and 'Catching the Wolf of Wall Street'. The new movie has been directed by the Oscar winning Martin Scorsese ('Shutter Island', 'Goodfellas', 'The Departed') and written by multi-Primetime Emmy winning writer Terence Winter ('The Sopranos', 'Boardwalk Empire', 'Brooklyn Rules').

Margot Robbie Was Afraid That Leonard DiCaprio Might Sue After On-Set Slap


Margot Robbie Leonardo Dicaprio Martin Scorsese

Margot Robbie apparently likes to get thoroughly caught up in her characters whilst filming, or at least that was the case during filming for her new film The Wolf of Wall Street. Speaking with GQ (via Metro), the Australian actress revealed that she got a little too carried away in a scene with co-star Leonard DiCaprio and slapped him hard and firmly right across the face.

Margot Robbie
Fortunately for Margot, Leo didn't mind the slap

"I got a little lost in the moment. I slapped his face and said, ‘F**k you!’ There was a stunned silence then they all burst out laughing," the 23-year-old actress told the magazine. "I’d thought they were going to sue me. I apologised profusely but Leo said, ‘That was brilliant. Hit me in the face again!"

Leonardo DiCaprio Stands Up For 'Wolf Of Wall Street' Against Misjudging Critics


Leonardo Dicaprio Martin Scorsese

Leonardo Dicaprio both stars in and produced the latest controversy-courting Martin Scorsese picture, The Wolf of Wall Street, and amidst growing criticism of the movie's unabashed look at the life of notorious former Wall Street broker Jordan Belfort, Leo has been forced to jump on the defensive for his latest film.

Leonardo DiCaprio
Leo stars as the shameless Jordan Belfort in the movie

Whilst a number of critics have praised Scorsese's style and the talent of the film's lead man, a number of critics can't get over the subject matter explored in the film enough to give it a chance. Whilst some reviewers of the film have seen it as a scathing critique of the problems affecting America today, others see it as a shameless promotion of the things it supposedly stands against, and it is these people who Leo was forced to address in his recent sit-dow with HitFix.

Leonardo Dicaprio Kate Winslet

Leonardo Dicaprio is nearly 40 years old, and has had quite the career. His new film The Wolf of Wall Street is out now, but it was a full 16 years ago that one of his biggest films, Titanic, was released. DiCaprio came away from the film with more than a great experience — he also made a lifelong friend.

The Real Life 'Wolf Of Wall Street' Eying Up His Own Reality TV Series


Leonardo Dicaprio Martin Scorsese

The Wolf of Wall Street is currently gearing up for awards season after being released to American cinema audiences on Christmas Day, with it's international release coming over the course of the next month. Whilst Martin Scorsese and Leonardo Dicaprio once again enthral and entertain audiences, the man behind the film, Jordan Belfort, may end up benefitting from the success of the film more than he anticipated, as he is apparently being courted by reality TV bosses to front his own show.

Wolf of Wall Street
Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street.

Belfort penned his memoirs, also titled The Wolf of Wall Street, whilst serving time in prison for various financial crimes and his tales of excess and corruption have made the transition from page to screen with great effect. His anecdotes about how he hosted drug-fuelled all-nighters after swindling hundreds of millions of dollars from investors have made a huge impression on plenty of people already, no less Electus CEO Chris Grant, who wants to make Belfort a star in his own right by having him front his own reality series.

The Real Life 'Wolf Of Wall Street' Jordan Belfort On The Verge Of Landing Reality TV Show


Leonardo Dicaprio

Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street', starring Leonardo Dicaprio as the Wall Street broker and party boy Jordan Belfort, hit the theatres this week and has been highly praised by critics.

The real-life inspiration behind the intriguing story, Jordan Belfort, could now make the unusual transition from New York stockbroker to reality TV star.

Electus CEO Chris Grant, who helmed shows like 'Fashion Star' and 'Mob Wives', recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about Belfort's new television venture.

The Wolf Of Wall Street Trailer - Where Did Kanye West Come From?


Kanye West Leonardo Dicaprio Martin Scorsese

This is the kind of thing Kanye West has been talking about. He wants to get involved in fashion; he wants to make buildings; he wants to design fishing rods, probably, and you can be sure he wants his songs to feature on socio-politically satirical comedies by Martin Scorsese. Everybody does, apart from this person.

Wolf of Wall StreetThe Wolf of Wall Street is out on Christmas Day

So in that sense, his song Black Skinhead’s inclusion on the trailer for the film, which features Leonardo Dicaprio, is no surprise. It’s only when you take a closer look at the film’s soundtrack – a bluesy, early rock & roll kind of feel – Kanye’s single of 2013 becomes somewhat of an outcast. So what happened there?

Wolf Of Wall Street Shocks Academy Member; "Shame On You" They "Screamed"


Martin Scorsese Leonardo Dicaprio

Martin Scorsese has seen a lot of things during his illustrious career, and funnily enough, a screen writer accosting him with disdainful words at an official AMPAS members screening is one of them – now he has two similar anecdotes to wield at dinner parties.

Wolf of Wall Street

A Facebook post from actress Hope Holiday alluded the general feeling after Scorsese’s latest film was screened, and it wasn’t exactly positive. And while the critics loved The Wolf of Wall Street – with Leonardo Dicaprio filling the boots of the titular Wolf, Jordan Belfort – the AMPAS fraternity weren’t as impressed.

'Wolf Of Wall Street' - A Colossus Of A Movie That Could Win Oscars. Several Oscars.


Leonardo Dicaprio Martin Scorsese

Nobody really expected The Wolf of Wall Street to be very good. Martin Scorsese was tasked with chopping the movie apart to meet running time expectations and the trailer looked a little ostentatious. Essentially, we all thought we had another Great Gatsby on our hands, albeit set in New York's banking district.

Wolf of Wall StreetLeonardi DiCaprio, as Jordan Belfort, Throwing a Dwarf

The movie sees Scorsese reteam with Leonardo Dicaprio for an adaptation of Jordan Belfort's memoir concerning his ride as a crooked banker in the 1990s. Belfort made millions through stock market manipulation and running a stock boiler room, eventually spending 22 months in prison.

Leonardo DiCaprio Gets An Earful From Animal Rights Campaigners Over 'The Wolf Of Wall Street' Chimp


Leonardo Dicaprio Martin Scorsese

Wolf of Wall Street
The Wolf of Wall Street arrives in cinemas soon

Leonardo Dicaprio has been on the end of some rather scathing criticism from PETA and other animal rights organisations owing to a scene involving a chimpanzee in his upcoming movie The Wolf of Wall Street. The Martin Scorsese-directed black comedy is the latest in a long line of Hollywood films that unfairly exploit animals from an early age so that they may be used in films, PETA have argued, and they expected better from Leo.

In the film, DiCaprio drags a chimpanzee named Chance through a bustling office party in a scene that has greatly upset the animal rights community, not over what happens in the film, but for how the animal is treated behind the scenes. The true-to-life biopic of Wall Street broker Jordan Belfort has come under fire from animal rights groups for its use of the chimp, claiming "that chimpanzees are abused and taken from their mothers at an early age before being forced into Hollywood."

Mark Wahlberg Admits He Was "Kind Of A D---" To Leonardo DiCaprio


Mark Wahlberg Leonardo Dicaprio

In news that hasn’t really been relevant for at least two decades, Mark Wahlberg was apparently “a bit of a d**k” to Leonardo Dicaprio back in the 90s. The Pain and Gain star revealed as much in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Wahlberg talked about many things in the interview – finding religion and supporting gay marriage at the same time, his early years in Hollywood and, as part of that – that time he was almost looked over for a part in The Basketball Diaries alongside Leo.

Tommy Chong Says He's To Thank For 'The Wolf Of Wall Street'


Tommy Chong Leonardo Dicaprio Martin Scorsese

Leonardo Dicaprio stars as stock market criminal genius Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorsese's latest movie The Wolf of Wall Street, but this is one portrayal that Tommy Chong claims would not have happened were it not for him. Ahead of the film's release, the second half of Cheech and Chong has gone on record to state that he is partially responsible for Belfort's written account of his pre-prison life, making him partially responsible for the film adaptation too.

Tommy Chong
Tommy Chong says he helped Belfort write The Wolf of Wall Street

Chong was spotted out in Los Angeles last week by TMZ reporters, who quizzed the comic about his time in jail in the early 2000's, the same jail and the same time that Belfort was serving in for stock market manipulation and running a penny stock boiler room. At the time, Chong was serving 9 months for selling bongs online and in his recent on-the-street discussion, Tommy claimed that he got to know Belfort when he was behind bars, going on to claim that he encouraged Belfort to write his memoirs and even saying that he helped him do it.

Leonardo DiCaprio Celebrates His Birthday In True 'Wolf Of Wall Street' Style

Perhaps he’s method acting; perhaps he’s just famous and can do what he wants – either way, Leonardo Dicaprio didn’t let his seemingly insignificant 39th birthday pass him by as he celebrated until 4am at TAO, in downtown New York. Special guests included 2Chainz and Kanye West, who, between them, saw the crows entertained with rap music until the wee hours of the morning.

Leo was even seen dancing on stage with them, according to The Daily Mail. Orlando Bloom, Benicio Del Toro, A-Rod, Derek Jeter, Tobey Maguire, Nicky Hilton and rapper Busta Rhymes also showed up. DiCaprio plays Jordan Belfort – a rich and very much corrupt stockbroker living the high life - in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street. It's one of the hottest movies of the year, but can it contend for awards?

George Clooney 'Rant' Against Russell Crowe & Leonardo DiCaprio Explained By His Publicist


George Clooney Leonardo Dicaprio Russell Crowe

George Clooney has had to explain himself after being quoted with some not-so-nice words for two of Hollywood's leading men: Russell Crowe and Leonardo Dicaprio. The hunky actor became a talking point earlier this week after apparently bad mouthing Leo and his entourage, as well as reliving the feud started between himself and Crowe - sparked by Crowe in 2005 - and revealing that there is still bad blood between them.

George Clooney
George's comments were taken out of context

In the interview for Esquire magazine, the 52-year-old actor recalled playing a basketball game against Leo, and complained particularly about the way in which his friends behaved before and during it. After finding himself on the winning side of an 11-0 drubbing, Clooney told the glossy, “And the discrepancy between their game and how they talked about their game made me think of how important it is to have someone in your life to tell you what’s what. I’m not sure Leo has someone like that."

George Clooney has moulded an image of himself as the nice guy around Hollywood, regularly pitching in on humanitarian projects around the world and hosting and attending fundraisers and the likes for example, but it turns out that Mr Nice has a few bad bones in his body too. In a no-holds-barred interview with Esquire for their December issue, the actor took some unexpected verbal shots at Russell Crowe and Leonardo Dicaprio.

Crowe and Clooney apparently have a long-standing feud, one that Crowe attempted to bring to an end, only for Clooney to laugh off his attempts at reconciliation. Their beef began when Crowe called the 52-year-old Clooney a "sellout" some years ago, with Clooney saying that he has shot down every attempt to win his favour since then.

Wolf Of Wall Street Trailer


Jordan Belfort started out his stockbroker business in a tiny office with a small group of people and had the intention of targeting only the richest people in America as their clientele. With such a small percentage of individuals lined up as hopeful patrons, their dreams of immense fortune and a life of luxury seemed embarrassingly unlikely. However, pretty soon the company starts to ooze more money than they can handle and it's parties, alcohol and women all round. Unfortunately, it soon becomes clear to everyone that what Belfort was doing to earn his fortune is not entirely legal and he risks his freedom and his wealthy lifestyle when the FBI get involved.

'The Wolf of Wall Street' is a white-collar crime drama based on the two memoirs by the real Belfort, who was jailed in 1998 for a string of fraudulent offences including money laundering. The autobiographies have since been translated into 18 different languages and now the Oscar winning Martin Scorsese ('Shutter Island', 'Goodfellas', 'The Departed') directs the screen adaptation which has been written by multi-Primetime Emmy winning writer Terence Winter ('The Sopranos', 'Boardwalk Empire', 'Brooklyn Rules'). The movie is set to be release on January 17th 2014.

Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli was apparently brought to tears by a picture of her ex-boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio with actress Blake Lively only months after the couple split up.

She admitted that she was shocked to discover that he had moved on so quickly with Lively.

Runner Runner Review


Bad

Clearly something went horribly wrong as this thriller was being made, because despite a solid cast, gorgeous locations and an intriguing premise, the film is an incoherent mess. Sure, it looks achingly cool, but there isn't a single moment when the characters' motivations make any sense. And there's never a hint of suspense or danger.

It doesn't help that the set-up revolves around two of the least cinematic things on earth: finances and computers. Timberlake plays Princeton grad student Richie, who runs a gambling website to pay his tuition but loses his savings when another site cheats him. So he heads to Costa Rica to confront the online casino boss Ivan (Affleck). Impressed with his initiative, Ivan offers him a job, and soon Richie has more cash than he can possibly spend. But for some reason, all he wants is Ivan's colleague-girlfriend Rebecca (Arterton). Then a nosey FBI agent (Mackie) forces Richie to help him take Ivan down.

Director Fuhrman showed considerable promise with another renegade loner in The Lincoln Lawyer, but this film simply refuses to fill in enough of the gaps. Nothing that happens here is remotely convincing, as the characters are continually thrust into half-developed scenarios. Perhaps there's a more coherent longer version out there, because this one feels like it was edited with a machete. Even as a cautionary tale about the dangers of greed, this story has nothing relevant to say.
