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

    Saw “The Wolf Of Wall Street” yesterday…great movie. DiCaprio & Jonah Hill both brilliant. And Matthew McConaughey a hilarious cameo.

    I’m not here to talk about Leo’s sm even though he does have one, I don’t know where she is or what she’s doing but good luck to them. I’m here to talk about Leo’s environmentalism and his future projects in regards to that area. Those who want to see Leo be more hands on it will happen around never. Leo isn’t that type of guy, never has been and he won’t be doing anything like that this year. More tweets and maybe if you’re lucky two speeches and an auction. I do however see Leo and Toni breaking apart gradually especially after the awards season’s over. New movie looks good around the summer/fall time. During awards season to summer he will be doing some more traveling and maybe lightening will strike and he will meet someone new??

    She hasn’t indicated she’s left Cabo yet. I’m sure she’ll be leaving soon whether it’s to meet Leo or to go back to NYC because that’s where she lives.

    Also, I haven’t seen any tweets of where Leo is at the moment. Everyone’s still talking about his Ellen appearance!!! LOL

    @candygirl: you see when you say things like this no one is going to take you seriously. Leo and Toni getting married..through separate entrances right!? lol He tries his best not to be seen with her in public especially at events that are IMPORTANT to him! Thanks for the laughs! No I know for sure you’re no insider! haha!!

    candygirl Says:

    oh sorry my bad that she was heading back home to NYC, my guess that leo and toni will have a very small wedding, it will be somewhere in a remote area where nobody or paps will not see them. it will be very private wedding.

    just my opinion Says:

    I’m worried, Because the relationship with toni looks more and more deep. :( Away to try hide her it seems like try to keep her for his personal and private life . Toni is nice and sweet but I do not seem to be ideal for Leo, i think he needs a woman with more personality and presence. but maybe I’m wrong. sorry for my English.

    tara Says:

    @####: yeah that’s how we know she’s a fake

    LMAO again!!! It’ll be in a remote area and the wedding will be so private that they won’t even be in the same building when they get married…..just so paps won’t be able to snap pics of them together!!!! Toni will instagram a pic of herself in her wedding dress and tag Irmelin’s boyfriend, his daughter and Jen Meyer!!!
