Leonardo DiCaprio arrested by FBI as he films dramatic waterside scenes for The Wolf of Wall Street

Leonardo DiCaprio is wrestled to the ground by FBI agents as he films a dramatic sequence for his film The Wolf Of Wall Street in New York on Wednesday.

The 38-year-old actor is seen here suited and booted as real-life stockbroker Jordan Belfort.

Leo was shooting some waterside scenes, which saw him set upon by two men dressed in branded FBI jacket.

In another sequence the actor was sighted hanging off the edge of a helicopter as it took off from the heliport.

The movie marks the fifth collaboration between legendary filmmaker Scorsese and the actor, with the Titanic star playing real-life stockbroker-turned-convict Jordan Belfort who founded Stratton Oakmont aka The Boiler Room, a pump-and-dump scheme, in 1987.

The film is based on Belfort's autobiography and it follows the bad boy of finance who eventually spent 22 months in prison, attended rehab, and is paying back over $100 million to duped investors

It chronicles his debauched life, with scenes including Jordan and his wife having sex on piles of money, dwarf-throwing and orgies.

In fact, a few days ago, DiCaprio was pictured filming long smouldering kissing scenes with older British actress Joanna Lumley.

The Absolutely Fabulous actress was dowdily dressed in a mid-length floral dress and matronly jacket for her role, looking little like her usually glamorous self.

Even between takes it seemed the pair were enjoying one another's company, sharing a laugh and staying arm-in-arm as they warmed up in jackets.

British star Joanna is a grandmother of two, who has been married for 26 years to conductor Stephen Barlow.

She has previously expressed her admiration for her younger co-star, telling Contact Music: 'Leonardo DiCaprio is enchanting. He's professional and kind and courteous. Everyone loves him and he's not remotely a big starry star.'

Meanwhile, DiCaprio is back on the dating market after his split from a 23-year-old underwear model.

He appears is in no hurry to give up the single life, having dated a string of gorgeous women, including actress Blake Lively and models Bar Refaeli and Gisele Bundchen.



He recently split from Victoria's Secret model Erin Heatherton amidst reports he wasn't ready to settle down.

A source told the New York Post's Page Six: 'Erin wanted things to get more serious between them, but Leo is not ready to settle down.

'While it would seem amazing that he wouldn't want to settle down with one of the world's most beautiful women, Leo leads a charmed life.'

DiCaprio is featured in this month's Details magazine where he calls The Wolf of Wall Street a 'really wild, nuts movie' and his character in forthcoming film Django Unchained as 'one of, if not the most, despicable, indulgent, radical characters I've ever read in my life'.


Someone should shop 'What the fuck you did Bieber??' on these.

i dislike him because he's a bad to mediocre actor who has somehow fooled the world into believing he's top caliber by taking exclusively oscar baity roles and showing no range.

No range.
kurtvonnegut 29th-Nov-2012 02:05 am (UTC)
yep. leonardo dicaprio is: in a suit.

I'm trying to figure out if you've actually seen his movies because the no range comment is borderline outrageous considering his track record. He was definitely in a rut with the last three (ew to Hoover) but the acting was very good in two of them.

I saw your other comments so I'll address them here. No, I don't get lost in some of his roles, but I feel that way about most of my favorite actors/actresses. The only ones who do that for me are Cate Blanchet, Joaquin Phoenix, Asano Tadanobu and DDL. Kate Winslet is my favorite actress at the moment but she doesn't do that for me either.

Sometimes I wonder if that's because he's Leo D. the movie star and not some unattainable actor like the ones I listed above. Angelina Jolie may be a great actress (idts), but I'll never be able to see that because all I see is Angelina Jolie.

Either way, I'm excited for Django. It's going to break the stigma he gets.

i realize you're a stan and all but it's not that hard and accusing me of not seeing his movies is dumb, i've seen them all. you can't have range if you're not a good actor in the first place, and leonardo is not a good actor to me because he never brings me into his roles due to his inability to transcend them, and all his characters are suits with complexes.
ponpiri 29th-Nov-2012 02:31 am (UTC)
Funny how people here always throw the stan card when someone disagrees. I don't have strong feelings toward any celeb. It's all facetious.

Anyway, I had to check because you never know with ontd. People like to make conclusions without a thorough investigation.

Hey he's really got the guy with a dead wife market cornered, okay?
kurtvonnegut 29th-Nov-2012 02:07 am (UTC)
lol ikr

i feel the same way about michelle williams tbh since people are going to think i'm just picking on leo. all she ever takes is the oscar baity "miserable wife" roles. lawl at them being in a movie together where they both play the tropes they have become known for.
lloydsgurl 29th-Nov-2012 02:12 am (UTC)
have you ever seen a movie he was in and not been completely aware that you were watching leonardo dicaprio the entire time? as in, he never takes you ~there.

nope bc it isn't possible (except for maybe gilbert grape)
kurtvonnegut 29th-Nov-2012 02:13 am (UTC)
lol i say that exact thing ALL the time. he never takes me out of anything, he's always leonardo dicaprio acting.
lovelyeli 29th-Nov-2012 02:27 am (UTC)
um many of his earlier movies were great characters that didn't make me feel like i was watching leo

esp basketball diaries.
lloydsgurl 29th-Nov-2012 02:35 am (UTC)
so the more legitimate his career becomes (and the more oscar bait movies he makes), the worse his acting gets. makes sense.

And This Boys Life

The Beach was really good too

I don't dislike Leo, nor do I think he's a bad or even mediocre actor, but I completely agree that a lot of his more recent roles, especially, have lacked range. He's a fantastic actor beyond the reach of crime and law enforcement. Very much looking forward to Django Unchained, though. In the meantime, yes, he's quite boring.
6tormy 29th-Nov-2012 03:11 am (UTC)
Because an actor can't just be selective about his roles? He's one of the biggest movie stars in Hollywood. He gets to choose his movies and it makes perfect sense that he'd go with Scorsese, Spielberg or Eastwood. And lmao @ No range. Howard Hughes, Danny Archer & J. Edgar are definitely similar.
