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

    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.

    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.

    WTF Says:

    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.

    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?

    I think he’s been bored with these young models after young models but it seems like a cycle he just can’t quit, unfortunately.

    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.

    @Black sharpie:

    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!

    Yeah, I for sure believe it will be the last trip! X
