Leonardo DiCaprio is a great, underrated actor, so it should be no surprise that he likes to do his own “stunts”, and by stunts I mean his own sex scenes. While some have suggested that Leo got a body double in for the intimate parts of The Wolf of Wall Street, he wants you to know that’s not the case and in fact it’s his very own body you see “flopping around”. Try to hold back your vomit after reading that description.
From Extra TV:
DiCaprio revealed, “It was all me, pal… all the flopping around, everything, it was all me!” — including a sex scene involving a candle.
Leo added, “Look, when you do a character like this, you have to go all-out, we can’t pull any punches and you have to just swing for the fences, so hopefully people enjoy it.”
Swing for the fences? Is that a thing people say? Also, calling people “pal”? Has Leonardo DiCaprio turned into everyone’s grandad? I sorta love it. Still don’t love the idea of thinking of ANYONE “flopping around”, though. Not a great visual, pal.
What do you think the percentage is of stars using body doubles for sex scenes? I’ve not seen The Wolf of Wall Street, but I can’t imagine there’s any full frontal nudity, which is something I can see having someone stand in for. But how many stars even refuse to show ass or even bare back? I remember Sarah Jessica Parker used to insist on keeping her bra on in Sex and the City for her sex scenes, which I always found really hilarious.
