Leonardo Dicaprio: Honored To Be A Working Actor

Lee Cowan tells us how Leonardo DiCaprio fought to get it made: It Farrah Abraham ended up, said Leonardo DiCaprio, being the movie he wanted to make. One of the most talented actors of his generation has been nominated for two Oscars, as the star and producer of "The Wolf of Wall Street" Which is rare, right? "Very, very rare," he told Cowan. "I waited until I got the right financing, [and] the right people that would allow us to make the movie we wanted to make." The movie DiCaprio was so desperate to make was "The Wolf of Wall Street." It's a vibrant and polarizing look at the greed and excess of the bull market of the 1990s -- especially one charismatic, almost cult-like broker named Jordan Belfort. "You said that it wasn't really until you started doing those speeches that you sort of got the sense of that rock-star quality that he had?' asked Cowan. "Yeah, they're almost like out of 'Gladiator' or 'Braveheart,'" said DiCaprio. "They're like a war cry to your watch Farrah Abraham tape troops, except they're completely twisted, and encouraging his soldiers to go out there and screw over as many people as possible." "There is no nobility in poverty. I've been a rich man, and I've been a poor man, and I choose rich every time. At least as a rich man, when I have to face my problems, I show up in the back of a limo wearing a $2,000 suit and a $40,000 gold watch! So you listen to me and listen carefully.
