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(1406 last thread): Hi, u there?
Does this 3rd person love Leo as well?

It wasn’t his best interview, but I’d take it over any Gatsby interview he did last year.

BAD INTERVIEW @ 01/07/2014 at 4:21 pm

@HAHA12: You’re acting as if Leo is a completely different person, he is not. He is still the same silly boy he was in the 90s, the difference is that he can’t act like that due to his profession. He wants to maintain the status of being a serious actor, he has to act mature infront of his fellow peers, i get that its important for his job. However, we all know Leo is not that serious in real life, I wish he would just be himself, the real gooofy self . I think it would be a great way to connect with his fan base.

@@Lilly(1406 last thread): I have read aaall your posts btw.

Leo came out to Kanye West. Fangirl! Ok Ellen’s kissing Leo’s a**…talking about WOLF. Boring…More Ellen a** kissing. I watching this interview and its boring…I think the shark thing is probably the most interesting thing in the interview

Leo is the same in terms of his lifestyle and immaturity, but you really think he is completely the same he was 20 years ago? The Leo of the 90s was candid and said anything he wanted and was totally outgoing, and yet the Leo of now seems very shy and tense. Whether its in public places, talk shows, award shows, etc. He is just not the same bubbly guy he once was, and I won’t fault him for that. I agree it’d be great if he could let his inhibitions go and be more comfortable with himself but that’s on him, maybe he’s not at the point in his life where he truly feels ‘free’, so to speak. And btw I think part of the reason he seemed a bit tense was due to the controversy WOWS has been getting, he really doesn’t seem like he’s handled it well. JMO.

@HAHA12: I see what you mean, well if you’re comparing this to his Gatsby interview well then yeah! lol

I just don’t get what was so bad about this interview. He did actually attempt to make jokes and smiled during it. I just feel like some people on here are overestimating Leo too much and expect him to be too many different things he may not at the moment, including being bubbly and ‘happy’. You all saw what a hot mess last year was for him, and when was the last time he actually seemed ‘relaxed’ in an interview from the US? Not talking overseas. You’d have to go back to either 2006 or the 90s for that answer. Maybe he has problems with himself that prevents him from being ‘free’ or his natural self. He hasn’t looked happy in the longest as you already know. I’m just glad he atleast went on a talk show again.

BAD INTERVIEW @ 01/07/2014 at 4:32 pm

@HAHA12: I agree. I don’t know if anyone else noticed, but in the interview Leo’s leg was shaking LMAO, poor bb. He really was nervous, I just want him to loosen up so bad. Also, haven’t you noticed ppl raving about Leo in WOWS, like famous ppl Justin Bieber, Kourtney K, JT, Tobey’s wife… they are all talking about it, like on twitter, instagram etcc. I’m not saying its not bad, but I feel a lil suspicious about it….maybe I’m just thinking things but maybe they are helping Leo promote WOWS due to its controversy I don’t know….

I’m so happy for Leo and all the praise he’s gotten, even if misses an Oscar nomination the amount of raves he’s gotten is just fantastic. I just feel bad that despite this, he still does not seem happy or comfortable with himself. Like you said, he kept shaking his foot and seemed quite nervous in the Ellen interview, maybe its because he’s aware of his shaky image to the public now? Also maybe because he hasn’t been on a talkshow with a live audience in years. And its worse because the man is 39 years old, has been in the business for over 20 years, but still seems so insecure and unsure of himself. And then you have actors younger than him like Ryan Gosling and Joseph Gordon Levitt as examples who appear so confident and sure of themselves and I just can’t help but feel there’s something really bothering Leo or he has personal issues no one is aware of to make him appear so nervous and unhappy all the time.

I think Leo gets nervous on interview and red carpets.

BAD INTERVIEW @ 01/07/2014 at 4:50 pm

@HAHA12: I always felt like Leo was a really insecure person even tho ppl make it out as if he isn’t. You can tell in interviews like this one, and his personal life. We really don’t know much about Leo, like if he went thru any hardships, suffers from any physical or mental illnesses, we know absolutely nothing. Sometimes I just want to know what his life REALLY is like, I feel like we could understand him alot more but that will never happen lol, I just hope he really is happy with himself and his life……..

I agree, I know we all know about the debauchery that goes on in his lifestyle and obviously his relationships with women, but other then that? I feel like its impossible to tell if he really is happy with himself or is just straight up depressed. People say he looks so happy on his yachts with models and clubbing 24/7 but that’s only a fraction of Leo, that’s not him as a whole. I just can’t help but feel bad because he doesn’t seem happy whatsoever and I do wonder if there are personal issues in his life no one is aware of or maybe secretly he is tired of the same lifestyle he’s been having for the past 20 years but still can’t find a way to break his cycle. I think his background and being super famous as young as he was definitely has affected him as an adult and probably in the worst way.

BAD INTERVIEW @ 01/07/2014 at 5:00 pm

@HAHA12: I agree. This was a good convo, thanks. Hope to talk to you soon on a new thread! :D

It was really nice talking to you as well and see you probably on another thread soon

Blacksharpie @ 01/07/2014 at 5:22 pm
This was from the National Board of Review last year. He is so serious! It kind of looks like a mug shot?!

@Black Sharpie @ 01/07/2014 at 5:26 pm

maybe he was disappointed by the django snub? who knows..he def didnt look too happy there


He and Marty won the spotlight award so I guess he’s not going because the Gala is tonight in NYC???

The “art lover” just posted. What’s the location?

Just wondering.. @ 01/07/2014 at 5:45 pm

have any of yal considered the fact maybe he acts so self cautious in interviews is because he knows what a joke he is seen as to many people? just bc he’s never openly mentioned knowing about what a joke he is on the internet, doesn’t mean he doesn’t know/hasn’t seen the oscar jokes/the leo strut/memes/etc. can you imagine trying to look and sound smart and charming while simultaneously wondering how many people are waiting for you to do something they can turn into a meme? that’s why he’s always safe, he’s saying things that he knows for certain cannot be bastardized by the tweens/wannabe comedians of the internet. i mean just look at this tag on tumblr, i would be surprised as hell if leo isn’t atleast make oscar jokes bout him

Blacksharpie @ 01/07/2014 at 5:45 pm

I would think he would go because he is receiving an award?! Wasn’t there a post earlier today saying her was going!?
TG just posts two pics of Art. Don’t know if they were taken today or not.

Just wondering.. @ 01/07/2014 at 5:46 pm

isnt atleast aware****
btw, before i get attacked by some on here, this is just another point to consider. i want to give him some credit
