Leonardo DiCaprio Discusses Shark Survival Story on 'Ellen'!

Leonardo DiCaprio flashes his signature smile while making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which airs today on NBC.

On the show, the 39-year-old actor detailed some behind the scenes tidbits about filming the infamous ham scene in The Wolf of Wall Street.

“It all resulted in this insane sequence in the end where Jonah [Hill] decides to stuff ham into his mouth as well and crashes into a plate glass table and we were doing this CPR sequence and you know the big challenge that day we had to do 70 takes because they couldn’t get this ham to stick on my face and they had to put K-Y Jelly and there’s literally a guy there behind this giant window with a plastic spoon just flicking ham on my face all day long as I’m doing this insane sequence,” Leo said. “But it was almost, it was one of the most surreal things I’ve ever done in my entire career.

Also check out a video below, where Leonardo discusses surviving being in a shark tank with a Great White!

“I went scuba diving looking for sharks and I had a huge fear of sharks and when I did Blood Diamond in 2006 I actually got stuck in a cage with a great white, which was awesome,” Leo said. Find out what happened below!

FYI: Leo is wearing a Shamballa Jewels 10mm Black Onyx Bracelet

    He looks in great spirit. He should stay away from his girlfriend and be with Ellen all the time. I love to see him smile.

  • http://yes ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!

    Asians can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by having completely expressionless faces so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don’t want ANYONE to know they can read minds! They value hiding it more than their own lives!!!
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, it works if you try enough!!!

  • also…

    He looks so cute with that huge smile! I loved it! He seems to have good chemistry with virtually everyone except for his girlfriend.
    @LOLOLOL: I agree!

  • @Leokas

    Leo has been spending time with you isnt it? I can see it in his face. Happiness.

    He’s so cute when he’s not talking from a script!! I just saw the shark segment and I’ll have to wait until I get home tonight to watch the rest but he looks really good and relaxed!!! :-)

    Leokas we miss you!!!! We need some pics of you guys!!! LOL

    I was really impressed. My first thought to watching was “oh my gosh. He has personality in an interview” he was great!

    @@Leokas: obviously, I’m his source of true happiness not Toni whatshername!!!@####: don’t worry, well be back, we are going to have a grand return and you’ll be shocked!! Stay tuned xoxo

  • Baby

    He is so intelligent, well spoken and effortlessly charming. I am in love.

  • Sugar daddy

    I know everyone is swooning and Leo looks somewhat relaxed but to me he seems like he doesn’t want to be there n he’s tired, he’s not as excited as everyone is saying. He’s trying to jk around but he seems like he just wants to get out of there. He’s prolly like that after turning up in cabo

  • ivana

    omg he makes me cry every single second I see him alive! Im so happy for you

  • But

    What is doing Toni in Cabo with a bunch of olds?

  • @Sugar daddy


  • ???

    We finally have a new thread with something good about Leo and some people keep talking about his gf, smh.

  • sarah

    Ellen is fun.
    So do you think his 6 feet sugar baby fraulein will be on his heels at this coming GG night….?

  • @sarah

    who cares?

    Leo is so easy on the eyes. I love it.

  • @but

    Lol….at her age she still needs granpas to look after her.
    Don’t forget Leo’s mom has the age to be Toni’s granny.

  • also…

    @sugar daddy: Compared to how he looked during his vacation he looks amazing! Smiley and relaxed even if he is tired! It’s good to see him like this.
    @Sarah: I highly doubt she will be around. Maybe behind the scenes attached to Irmelin and Dave…

  • ####


    I saw your post on the other thread about getting the hashtag anytime that you know who is on her way back to NYC. LOL I still don’t think he’s going to take her to London. He seems to have her keep her distance when he’s working.

    Of course depending when she is supposed to return to work, she could hang out with her friend in LA (that Jamie girl who she is in Cabo with) and he may take her to some of the GG parties since that is this Sunday.

  • Ha

    @@but: Telling you that girl has some serious daddy issues.

  • ####


    I’m sure that is a friend of Leo’s mom and boyfriend. She’s getting in good with the family and extended friends.

  • Ha

    @####: She’s getting in good with everyone except Leo lol.

  • Julian

    nice to see that he has time for an interview. No party today? No young fame whore’s aka “models” today?

  • ####


    Between Aspen and Cabo, it seems like a week and a half with her is usually about all he can take nowadays. Maybe he was glad to get back to work! LOL

  • see it too

    @Sugar daddy: yeah I see it too, he’s not TRULY happy, doesn’t have true joy. He doesnt seem really excited of full of life though he’s trying his best to be a good Old Sport for ellen. There is something missing. You can’t fake true happiness and something is missing from Leo. I see it too, thought it was only me..He needs a life style change not just a few minutes with Ellen will help him. He still look like he’s just being “talk show” happy.
    I would say Leo doesn’t have true JOY in his life. He can be happy for a couple of minutes but true joy comes from he inside and he doesn’t have it. If he did he wouldn’t be able to switch from joy to misery in a nano second. He seems RELAXED but he doesn’t seem really EXCITED about life in general.

  • Toni

    can you guys go two seconds without mentioning toni? for how much you guys dislike her you sure do talk about her alot

  • @see it too


  • @Toni


  • @toni


  • Well

    So Irmelin and her boyfriend are babysitting Leo’s Sugar Baby. Hilarious.

  • Fashion Faceoff
  • Rich n Famous

    Methinks Toni is in love with Leo’s lifestyle more than with Leo…With SM the opposite is true. In love with Leo not crazy about the life style!

  • Lilly
    Someone posted this. I literally thought it was Bar.
    Watching this interview just shows how charming and well spoken Leo is!

  • Rich n Famous

    Its funny how in his fake relationship pretty much EVERYTHING is done on his terms! Toni hanging out with Leo’s family all the time. It would be a joke to see Leo hanging out with Toni’s family for such a long time. Leo is definitely the star of his life and everyone is the supporting cast! His relationships are mostly 90 percent of the time one sided!!

  • Blacksharpie

    I think he looks great. He’s low key in the interview. I don’t think interviews are his “thing”; more so when he talks about himself (the shark story).
    Can’t wait to see the rest of the interview.

  • Zzzzzz

    @#### & HAHA12: Hi! Yeah! – It is so good to hear him talking about the environment. I hope this is a sign that he is going to get more involved. Was it just me or did anyone else notice how he didn’t say anything about global warming or climate change? He just talked about endangered species and saving their habitat. Maybe he finally realized how silly it looks to talk about global warming when he is taking private jets? I hope so and I hope he really does to start doing hands on projects with the environment again!
    To all the people who get upset when I mention the private jets/yachts. If Leo wants to do that, fine! It’s his money and he has a right to enjoy it anyway he wants to. I only have a problem when he comes out and tells people to by electric cars and hybrids to reduce their footprint and then turns around and hops on a private jet. Enough said! I will try and refrain from talking about the jets again… unless he does something really bad!
