Leonardo DiCaprio Covers 'New York' Mag's Fall Preview Issue

Leonardo DiCaprio is featured on the cover of New York Magazine‘s Fall Preview issue, on newsstands now.

Here is what the 38-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On making Wolf of Wall Street with Martin Scorsese: “I told Marty, ‘I don’t think we’ll be able to do a movie like this too many times in the future. Larger-scale, R-rated dramas, like Blood Diamond or The Departed, don’t really get financed anymore.”

On his real-life character Jordan Belfort: “There was nothing Jordan wouldn’t divulge, no matter how intimate or embarrassing. That was the attraction for Marty as well—it’s the kind of brutal honesty that got Marty into making movies like Mean Streets.”

On researching the role: “I wanted a close relationship with him so that I could weave intimate details into the movie, things that weren’t in the book. I was kind of the middleman between him and Marty, and 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. His approach was essentially to put everything onscreen and see what we responded to. It was old-school, really independent filmmaking on a larger scale.”
