Ellen is a big fan of his performance in "The Wolf of Wall Street," and the handsome Leonard DiCaprio was here to tell her about the film and his good friend and co-star, Jonah Hill.

Leo is nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in "The Wolf of Wall Street." He described his favorite scene of the film to Ellen, calling it the "most wild thing" he's ever done in his life.  

"It all resulted in this insane sequence in the end where Jonah decides to stuff ham into his mouth as well, and crashes into a plate glass table... and we were doing this CPRsequence, 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! But it was almost... it was one of the most surreal thingsI've ever done in my entire career."

Ellen I just love your show. I've had these jokes for years and thought you could use some of them for Joke Day.
What do you call a dinosaur that does not take a bath?
A Stink-o-Saurus !

How does Darth Vader like his toast? On the dark side!

Why did Dracula go to jail? Because he robbed a blood bank!

What is a grizzly bear with no teeth? A Gummy Bear!

How do you close an envelope under water? You ask a Seal to help!

What is a cow without a map? Udderly lost!

Why was the sand yet? Because the Sea Weed on it!

Hope you like them, one of your regular Australian viewers. Love, Peace, laughter, Strength and Tolerance.

I actually thought it would be a great movie because I read so many good reviews about it. Unfortunately, I actually walked out mid-way during the movie because the fact that there is a lot of sex, drugs, course language etc. scenes I felt very uncomfortable. Also, I didn't like the fact of the affairs that Leonardo's character was having...I understand many rich (stuck-up) people do such things to their spouse. But literally viewing it on the big screen felt disturbing in so many ways...:thumbsdown:

I love Ellen and Leo- but I have a daughter with cerebral palsy and I was disgusted that the movie made reference to it as a joke. Disabilities are not funny.

This movie made me very upset, I feel that it should've been rated "X" It was very degrading in every way imaginable from the drugs & sex to the screaming throughout the movie, it was one huge headache. Had a better director made the movie we could've gotten a feel for the sleaze ball character without having to actually see the sexual acts. Sorry if people don't agree with me or think i'm a prude, I'm just a normal married women with 4 children and i'm appalled that my daughters would ever be exposed to any of that trashy movie. And Yes I did leave the movie mid way....

Ellen why do you support this guy and this terrible movie, even if they stayed true to character they should have done it with more class, this movie was rated "X" and just because Leo is in it doesn't make it right! The gross orgy sex, the drugs and especially all the screaming gave me a headache, I walked out of the movie it made me feel so slimy! Leo use to be one of my favorite actors & now I just see him as a drug butt sniffing sleaze ball. I'm rambling on because i'm still upset even after seeing this movie a week ago! Bottom line.. "Hollywood DO not use porn in rated "R" movies"!!! One more thing "I did not like LEOs acting in this movie" he sounded like a fake wannabe mafia guy.

Leo needs to learn English. It's not the most wild thing, it's the "wildest thing".

Leo is an awesome actor. The movie was based on a book, I still can't believe Jordan is still alive after all that crap he took. When the lemon kicked in that was the funniest. GOOD MOVIE

I wanted to see the movie but chose to let it slide because I know I would get sick and tired of all the foul language and perversion. What's sad to me is that so many in our society see that type of behavior as being just fine and praise such a movie. I often wonder if these noted celebrities reflect such sordid character in real life or if they just sell out for the movies and the money.

Your show means the world to me. I have many hours of entertainment that has stayed with me throughout the year.

You are the most gifted and talented individual on television .

I can think of no greater gift than offering a helping hand to those in need. You give freely and with a open heart.

I hope this New Year is everything you hoped for and more.

Thank you,

Anne Catherine Gibbons

My husband and I went to this movie because it was about the corruption on WallStreet (Amen). Also because I thought it might be about Meyer Blinder (Denver CO) who was a penny stock king. I like Leonardo DiCaprio, BUT, this choice was a crapper. I'm sorry - no I don't need to apologize - he may win all kinds of awards AND good for him, but I expected some class and what we got was downright 'porno' and he's proud of that??
I am not a prude, but this movie was insanity and should have been XXXXrated. Leonardo, do yourself a favor and quit adoring the $$$$$, as it will never get you to where you are ultimately hopefully wanting to go. Quit following these lustful money hollywood money-hunger wolves, they don't give a damn. Keep your dignity, it's not worth it. I think the public is owed an apology for your outstanding performance in a 2 cent flick that doesn't meet the eye of the beholder.

Just seen it and it looks like Leonardo DeCaprio is doing his impression of Ray Liota's character in Goodfellas. Just watch Goodfellas, much better than this repeat.

Normally I don't take the time to leave a comment however, I wanted to add that, I as well agree with the posts, stating people need to educate themselves about a movie before going to see it. Leo has deserved many awards due to his supurb acting. Thankyou Ellen for allowing him to visit with us on your show. Good luck to Leo for a chance at all the awards he truely deserves. Love his acting!

This is the first movie we have walked out on in a looooong time! Using the "F" bomb in every other word was totally over done. I can't see it should get any kind of award! Leonardo didn't help his career in making this movie.
