movie facts

The film goes on for three hours, which is only one of the things to note about how it far it goes to express the gross extravagance that Belfort engaged in, as recounted in his memoir of the same title. The actors also earn their rightful recognition with the methods they used to portray their characters. Margot Robbie, who plays the model that Belfort replaces his wife with, insisted on doing one scene nude. On screen, DiCaprio and his group can be seen snorting mountains of cocaine, which were actually crushed Vitamin D tablets. Jonah Hill was then hospitalized after inhaling too much of the powder that invaded his lungs. For the scene where Leo was having difficulty functioning because of too much quaaludes, the real Jordan Belfort actually coached the actor the reality of being under the influence of the drug. To top it all, The Wolf of Wall Street holds a Guiness World Record for having the most swears in a film, totaling 680 swear words spoken. The Wolf of Wall Street is another testament to the prowess that Martin Scorsese holds in film-making. He was able to put to screen obscenity that was rampant during Belfort's Wall Street days, leading up to his arrest and subsequent career as a motivational speaker after his release.
