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

    @Lilly:

    Exactly! Totally agree about the looks and the “yes” personality only getting you so far with Leo. He may like to act like he’s in his 20′s getting the young models to fall for him but that’s only going to go so far until he gets bored.

  • Newsly

    Apples to Leo and Toni!!! @Dalhousie: She’s referring to him as “Mr. Butler” because the fan who posed the question called him that. We know nothing about the lives of these people because they are nothing like ours. Men and even some women of their status and wealth don’t operate on a daily basis like the rest of us do unless they make a concerted effort to do so but that would mean not living or hanging out in LA. It’s safer for these people to “buy” sex then to find it the regular way because of who they are and the people out there trying to use them or get at their money. It makes sense. I think G and M had a legitimate relationship but I think they both knew and understood going in it had no future. Gerry’s all about having fun in the moment and taking things as far as he derives pleasure from it. When that ceases to happen, he moves on. Women her age are easier targets for that kind of thing because they seldom want to settle down. They’re young and aspiring and while he’s getting a steady girlfriend and companion for sex, she’s getting the publicity. It’s a fair exchange and no body is the worse for wear.

    Jesus, that was a great interview and still some of you aren’t satisfied. SMH. He looked comfortable and very happy. The guy is clearly happy with this movie and his performance and is making more of an effort to promote it because this one is his passion project like The Aviator.

    No matter what he does it will never be enough. I think most of you can wait for him to fail so you can laugh at him. If you aren’t fans of him why are you here. I never understand why people go on the internet to waste their time with negativity. You must have miserable lives. People who tear others down are usually unhappy with their own lives and find enjoyment in trashing others. How sad.

  • HAHA12

    @WTF:
    You’re not the only one, I liked the interview too. Not his best and he did seem a bit too nervous/tense but it wasn’t bad at all. Like I said people expect things from Leo that I am not sure he is capable of ATM, including being bubbly and enthusiastic like he used to be when he was a teen. I know Ellen is an ass kisser but she especially seems to like Leo a lot, which is sweet. Who knows, maybe she’ll be voting for Leo come Oscar time?

    He’s at the NBR Gala. I searched #nbrgala on Instagram and there are pics of him. I don’t know how to copy pics from Instagram?!

    @Lilly:

    I agree with you though that the end is coming for them, maybe 2-3 more months. I also think this may be the last trip we see them together on.

    YAY!!! At least he’s there!!! :-)

    There’s a button at the bottom of the instagram pic with 3 dots. Click on that and pick “copy as URL” I think and then come here and paste it!

    I am glad he is there.

    Oh, the slicked back hair again! Noooooo! LOL at Marty looking at him like a fan(girl) or like Jonah at the premiere!
    Thanks for the photos!

    I’ve gotten used to the slicked hair at this point lol. I just wish he wouldn’t use it for the Globes but he most likely will. Meh!

    I guess Jonah, Marty and Leo will jet off to London tomorrow for the premiere and maybe others in Europe???

    Toni’s still in Mexico. Don’t know she’d they we’re here http://instagram.com/p/i4on5zjT5z/.
    . I do think this will be her last hols with them.
    Leo looks good, but I want someone to tell him not to out so much grease or gel on his hair.

  • newin

    I noticed leos close circle follows gisele,erin on instagram. Never bar or toni. Hmm. Bar must be single for a reason. And Toni is just another fling.

  • Amy

    Question of the Day: Blond Leo or Brunette Leo, which do you prefer?

  • question

    will we ever see leo kiss toni like in the usa with him being aware of cameras?

  • @HAHA12

    Leo actually looked much better at least year’s NBR even with the excess tan. He looks old in these shots almost 45 does not bode well for the Globes

  • question

    @Amy:
    blonde hair for sure, but dark hair looks good on him in wolf of wallstreet.

  • Lilly

    @newin: I’m not sure if people liked bar. In a interview she says she doesn’t know why she’s single because she’s hot. Also Jen doesn’t comment or post a pic if bar wears one of her jewellery when she does to Gisele and Blake. Although they are the most famous. Didn’t Bar slag off Erin, or Leo, I’m not sure. Didn’t she say in a interview she’s looking for a real man and he would leave her in the bed while looking at scripts. And I’m not sure what she said about Erin.
    I think someone posted an article about that.

  • @newin

    yeah they do. emily, patrick, jennifer all follow toni.

    @@HAHA12:
    He was shooting WOWS at the time which explains why he looked so good at last years Globes. He was forced to be in shape. I’m just gonna accept it’ll prob be the same greasy and slicked hair at this years GG’s but i hope i am wrong.

  • @HAHA12

    And the funny thing is his pals like Kevin C, Tobey M and even Lukas don’t seem to have the same wear and tear as Leo does despite some living a relatively similar lifestyle. Sorry but in these close ups he looks really unattractive

  • Lilly

    @question:
    I really liked him with dark hair. The tan was a bit too much, but still looked good in a way. His look was not my usual type, but I found him attractive :)

  • @HAHA12

    I know he was shooting WOWS but he was still seen partying it up in NYC hotspots while filming and it showed he still had some semblance of ‘it’ when he can be bothered which of course showed with his rocking gorgeousness at the 2012 GGs (the lack of slicked back hair may have had something to do with it as well). But in these pics dude is aging like a banana, he better invest in Bradley Coopers skincare regime

  • HAHA12

    @@HAHA12:
    Pretty sure Leo parties hard 10x more then all of them do. Thats what happens when you live such a hard lifestyle, just look at how haggard Lindsay Lohan looks. And idk if its just me but Leo looks much better in motion than he does in pictures. But I agree these are not flattering pics of him but it gets old inspecting his looks so much. I could really care less how attractive or unattractive he is at the end of the day. Just wish he took better care of himself cus when he does he looks really good imo.

  • ####

    @question:

    I agree. I like his hair lighter but the dark hair was good for WOWS.

  • HAHA12

    @@HAHA12:
    He needs some rest and needs to stop hitting the clubs so much. Exercise would be good as well. I prefer him to Bradley even if Bradley looks more attractive then Leo most of the time, idk if that makes sense lol. The slicked hair really emphasizes his large forehead which is why I wish he didn’t style it like that.

  • HAHA12

    @####:
    He looked really good in WOWS.

  • @HAHA12

    For me its not so much attractive or unattractive question its just the bloat dag factor and general unhealthiness it exudes, same thing with Lohan who is remarkably pretty but looks like she has been ridden hard and put away wet at the age of 27. They just look like they need colonics and holy water

  • @ @newin

    Emily and Patrick are probably good friends with Leo but I don’t think they count as inner circle like Jen, Tobey, Lukas, Kevin or Ethan.

  • HAHA12

    @@HAHA12:
    Yeah I definitely agree. I think Lindsay was soooo pretty before she got messed up and its a shame she let herself go like that. I don’t get what Leo’s deal is, unlike Lindsay he’s not on drugs as far as we know. Too much booze and clubbing I guess is the result of the bloated face. I just feel like he deliberately lets himself get so bloated and unkempt looking which is unfortunate. The older he gets, the harder it will be lose off that weight. Its weird because when he films a movie he looks so good like when he was shooting Gatsby and Wolf but then after the movie is released he goes back to looking slobby and gross lol. Same with Joaquin Phoenix, when he is cleaned up and well groomed he looks SO attractive but then you see pics of him like this and its obvious he just does not give a sh-t

    I think he’s attractive but I much prefer Leo at his best as opposed to Bradley at his best, if that makes sense. Its just too bad we don’t get to see Leo’s ‘best’ these days.
