Leonardo DiCaprio’s toes were draped with chicken liver by dog trainers as he tried to shoot a sex scene for his latest movie.
The actor stars as Jordan Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street, about the real-life man’s rise and fall as a stockbroker.
Margot Robbie is Naomi Lapaglia in the release and appears in some steamy scenes with the Hollywood hunk. But all was not as it seems on screen.
“We [had to] entice this dog to jump in the bed and bite at Leo’s feet… so we had dog trainers at the end of the bed [with] dog treats… we’re putting chicken liver on Leo’s toes. We’re in a small room, it’s hot, it’s sweaty, it smells like dog food,” she laughed to New York Post.
The actress may have hordes of Leonardo fans all over the world wishing to swap places with her, but she insists the sequence wasn’t sexy in any way.
“[It was] the least romantic thing,” she said. “The whole thing ended up being quite comical.”
Earlier this week Leonardo attended the premiere of the movie at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City. After the event he was seen with a huge group at the after-party, among them Orlando Bloom, Tobey Maguire and Jonah Hill.
Following the event at the Roseland Ballroom, the star continued his night at exclusive nightspot 1Oak.
Leonardo has already received a best actor Golden Globe nomination for his role and it seems he wants people in high places to see his performance. According to the publication, he and the film’s director Martin Scorsese personally delivered a copy of it to US President Barack Obama this week.
Leonardo is seen partying with scantily clad women in the movie, which also includes scenes with prostitutes and of drug use. He recently chatted about how he got into character.
“I approached this as a Roman emperor during the fall of the Roman Empire. And when you take on that mentality and you basically say these characters are incredibly hedonistic and they give in to every possible temptation and they have no regard for anyone except themselves,” he said at the premiere on Tuesday.
