The Internet wins again!
Anyone who saw The Wolf of Wall Street remembers the silly scene when Leonardo DiCaprio is on Quaaludes, but since he’s never done drugs, how did he prepare?
By going on YouTube and finding the video Drunkest Guy Ever Goes for More Beer.
In the clip, a very drunk man struggles to stay standing while trying to get another six-pack. Spoiler alert: he falls, A LOT!
But this is what did the trick to inspire Leo! He said he “obsessively” watched it, and added:
"It's not just the fact that he was sort of elasticated and trying to get [up], it was his motivation that was really intriguing. He had one singular goal, one that was to get a beer out of the 7-Eleven, and it took him a half an hour. And he was writhing around the floor. And people were watching and scratching their heads saying, 'What are you doing?' He just wouldn't stop reaching for something that was a life-sustaining force for him."
Ha! That’s a perfect analysis of the clip! However, Leo also got some info from the real Jordan Belfort, who, according to Leo, explained:
“He said, 'Look. You think that you're operating the same, but the mechanics of what your brain thinks and what your body actually physically manifests are two entirely different things.' "
Sounds awful! Remind us NEVER to do drugs!
And we’re so happy that Leo asked around about being on the stuff rather than try it for himself!
